‘since we are what we eat, if we ignore our taste preference and familial food fondness, we become someone else.’



Food is much more than just energy for our bodies.  It is an intimate representation of heritage and cultural practices, and how human connections are created.  What someone eats tells a story about who they are. 

In my consultations, I use gut health as the foundation of wellbeing. You will:

  • Understand the complex relationship gut health has with immunity, brain health, emotional health, sleep,  body composition, exercise performance & longevity

  • Learn to listen to your body and mind - what to eat, when to eat, how much and not feel guilty

  • Include local, seasonal, sustainable and culturally appropriate foods

  • Appreciate taste science and creatively balance taste, flavours, use of herbs and spices. 

  • Understand how transitioning from ancestral diets to modern food system affects your health, taste and quality of foods and the environment
