My philosophy


Evidence - based

I strongly believe that nutrition advice should be based on the latest scientific research to give you the best chance possible to stay healthy. 

Whole foods

My focus is on ensuring you have balanced meals that include all food groups. I firmly believe that everyone needs real foods to fuel themselves for everyday tasks, recreational sport, training and competition. 


Food should be enjoyed by everyone, including kids, elderly and athletes! Whether it’s a snack, or a meal, I will make practical suggestions that you’ll love.
