Food & Wellness

I love food. It plays a huge part in my life. I have found a way of eating and nourishing myself where I don’t feel like I’m missing out.

This didn’t happen overnight – it was a process that took a few years, during which I experienced a lot of ‘two steps forward, one step back’ moments.

Once I opened the door to a new way of eating, I came across some incredible people, including Sally Fallon, the author of Nourishing Traditions, Sarah Wilson from I Quit Sugar; and alternative medicine, health and fitness guru, Chris Kresser. The way they wrote and spoke about food – not just nutrition but also how we relate to food – just made sense to me. Something clicked. Gradually, I moved into a new way of feeding myself based on what I kept discovering.


My number one principle is: out with the new and in with the old.

How so? Well, back in the day, when there was no access to ‘convenient’ fast foods and microwave meals, people actually had to rely on old wisdom and hard work to create their food.

Traditional methods – such a fermenting vegetables, soaking grains, culturing dairy, and curing meats – were keeping people healthier and helped them live longer.

The ‘good old days’ to me were the times in which we didn’t live on a sugar roller coaster. Back then, we ate good fats that kept us satisfied and full for many hours. Our meal portions were smaller but we took time to eat slowly and enjoy our meals, not just gobble down food because we’re too busy.

Food and nutrition has become overwhelming; every day it seems there is a new study to prove what we should or shouldn’t be eating. This can create more stress and be counteractive to a healthy lifestyle.

How are we supposed to know what to eat?! I'm not big on diets, or subscribing to dietary labels such as ‘paleo’, ‘vegan’, ‘macrobiotic’. Instead I choose to eat wholefoods that are as unprocessed as possible. I choose to eat based on a few principles and philosophies. Read ‘My 10 Food Philosophies’ HERE.
