Nutritional Therapist & Body Image Coach

Hi and welcome to Straightforward Nutrition, my little corner of the World Wide Web!

I am so happy and grateful  that you are here.  I have been writing, photographing and sharing here since 2013, a few years after completing my 3 year studies in Nutritional Therapy in 2010.

My story with food and nutrition have probably been with me most of my life, due to my mother’s interest in this area, long before I was even born.

Like many people who are drawn to doing this kind of work, I too have a history of disordered eating and body image struggles, which started in my later teens and carried on well into my mid 20s. Today I would consider myself well recovered, grounded in following my own body’s wisdom and rhythm for nourishment.

It hasn’t always been an easy journey to find peace and freedom around food and feeling connected with my body. To learn to hate it a little less but instead to take good care of it, in order to live a life that is richer, fuller and more fulfilling than what it was when I was preoccupied with making my body be something it is not.

A little while back I wrote a somewhat “poetic” story of my journey of healing my relationship with food, eating and my body. You can find it here.

On this website you will find, info about the work I do; helping people break free from the chains of dieting, restriction, bingeing and body loathing. You will also find blog posts on the topics of such, as well as lots of colourful simple to make recipes, beacuse I love creating in the kitchen, and I love photographing food!

This blog is here to inspire people like you, to become kinder and more compassionate towards yourself. Hopefully it will inspire you to find ways of nourishing yourself and your body, in ways that feels good to YOU.

But, this space is also for me, to write, to explore and to express my thoughts, learnings and knowledge on how we can navigate this intersection of food, eating and bodies with nourishment of all kinds, in ways that feel good, honest and true.

“This work is a journey of homecoming”
