I spent many days bare-foot in my grandparents organic and conventional vegetable gardens. Together we would weed and nourish the soil, search for caterpillars to relocate, and pick the ripest of produce. It was here that I learnt about growing and eating for the seasons, how to provide the soil with nourishment and dry out fresh herbs and spices. This passion for food transferred effortlessly into the kitchen. Helping my Nonnas make fresh tomato sauce using the tomatoes we picked moments before, meatballs from the most delicious meat brought to us from a local farmer, and a wide variety of vegetarian dishes and pastas. Needless to say my love for fresh food started from a very young age.
My passion for food continued throughout school but it wasn’t until my health was affected that I began to realise the influence that food had on my body.
Today my love for food is as strong as ever, I am a Naturopath with a love for whole food cooking, a slight addiction to green smoothies, organic herbal teas, farmers markets and cookbooks.
I happily spend hours flipping through books on health and herbal medicine, taste testing new recipes and finding the different ways food can be used to benefit health and support the body and enhance our natural healing abilities.
I adore using food as medicine, to nourish the body, and encourage complete wellness. I am very passionate about health and encouraging people to find their own health path. Most of all, I want to encourage others to question their current health journey, then help them to find a path that is simple, easy and attainable.
