It’s important that we understand the effect that food has on our bodies, beyond how it makes us feel at the time we are consuming it.
I believe nature provides our best source of nutrition and it’s in our best interests to eat as natural and unprocessed as possible. Support local farmers, stores and fresh food producers and truly savour and appreciate our food. I believe it’s important to consume organic as much as possible and de-clutter excess chemicals and pollution in our lives.
There’s great power in realising that what you eat affects not only your appearance, but your mood, relationships and outlook on life. It’s an interconnected web of factors that can support your health, and eating wholefoods is the foundation.
MY CORE PRINCIPLES
1. I believe what one person eats for good health doesn’t mean it will work for the next. This is exactly why I am designing a selection of programs for various tummy types. Forget wasting your money and spending precious time navigating a generic program that doesn’t consider your dietary needs.
2. I believe nature provides our best source of nutrition and it’s in our best interests to eat as natural and unprocessed as possible. Support local farmers, stores and fresh food producers and truly savour and appreciate our food. I believe it’s important to consume organic as much as possible and de-clutter excess chemicals and pollution in our lives.
3. For centuries food has been used as medicine. There is an abundance of evidence both experimental, observational and anecdotal for food as a prevention for and aid in disease and illness. It’s important that we understand the effect that food has on our bodies, beyond how it makes us feel immediately after consumption.
Nutrition is still such a new science that we are constantly uncovering new information and new benefits of traditional whole foods, enhancing our knowledge and solidifying some truths of those that lived before us.
Knowledge is power and prevention is better than cure. After seeing so many sick patients in hospital, it’s heartbreaking to see their pain. Nobody wants to go through that, nor do they want their loved ones to go through that kind of suffering.
What ever we can do to prevent sickness and disease is something we need to be doing! Food is the ultimate everyday tool you can use to promote health, wellness and lasting energy, whilst decreasing your risk of a whole list of chronic lifestyle diseases.
4. The mind and gut are inextricably linked. 95 percent of the body’s serotonin, a happy hormone, is found in the bowels! When food is not nourishing us, but harming us, our mood and outlook on life deteriorates.
Our diet, coupled with our daily thoughts, can be a catalyst for amazing change or a vicious inhibitor of success. The power to change the habits of how we live, what we eat and what is acceptable to us, lies within our thoughts and beliefs.
Without believing change is necessary, having awareness of what needs to change and knowing how to do it, we stay the same, suffering the same. When we don’t feel well, we don’t look well, nor do we perform at our peak.
6. Eating well with food intolerances is easier than you think. Food intolerance and allergies can be challenging, but you don’t have to miss out on the taste and enjoyment of your meals. You just need a well-educated guiding hand to learn how to prepare simple, delicious whole food based meals according to your needs.
My aim is to help you along your journey by providing a holistic support. Including scientific-evidence based advice and updates, the latest in supplementation, product reviews of intolerance friendly foods, and of course, my nutritious, wholesome baking goods for when you’re just too busy and need a helping hand.
Get hooked on the good life!
Enjoy being you,
