I have always been passionate about food. Growing up in the English countryside I was given an “ideal” start in life. I loved collecting the eggs from our chickens, helping my dad grow our vegetables and helping my mum cook them. From a very young age I was exposed to a fresh, seasonal and organic way of living and eating.
An avid traveler, I have had the good fortune of spending time in many different countries from Ghana in West Africa, Guatamala in Central America to Prague and Greece in Europe. This enabled me to experience first hand the different perspectives and traditions around food. My travels brought me to the United States where I now live in Berkeley. The abundance of good farmers markets in California along with my love of food inspired me to want to learn more about nutrition. In October 2009 I volunteered on an organic farm in Maui, Hawaii. As an avid farmers market shopper, I wanted to get a deeper understanding of the work that goes into organic farming.
I was able to experience the benefits of healthy living and a nutritious diet when I became pregnant in 2010. I maintained high energy levels, enjoyed a complication free
pregnancy, and was able to workout up until the day I gave birth. My education in nutrition was the key, enabling me to choose the most beneficial foods for my pregnancy. My education continues to serve me post-partum, I enjoyed a fast recovery and am able to maintain the energy needed for motherhood.
I now specialize in helping women prepare for pregnancy, and support throughout pregnancy and post- partum recovery.
Life is hectic, and with so many theories, trends and advice it’s hard to keep track of what to eat or not eat for the best. We often find ourselves confused and with busy lives get overwhelmed, tired and stressed, opting to eat out most of the time or getting convenience “health foods”.
We all need to find our own way. There is no one miracle way to shed those extra pounds. Just as we each have our own unique genetic make up, our bodies respond differently to food. While some people may thrive on a vegetarian diet, others need meat, and at different times in our lives our bodies are in need of different foods depending on our environment.
Regardless of our genetic make up, however we all need REAL FOOD.
I can help you find a way of eating that is specific to your individual needs. I can help you shop for, cook and eat meals that give your body what it needs to thrive.
