Food is one of life’s most powerful medicines. I’m a true testament that once you find the right approach for you, you can overcome poor health through the healing power of food. My food approach is all about awakening a carefree, happier, healthier you whilst reducing inflammation and toxins in the body.

I believe the secret to radiant health starts and ends with a healthy gut so my recipes are all grain, gluten and refined sugar free. Most are also dairy-free. I love wholesome, natural food. Heaps of vegetables, healthy fats, eggs, nuts, organic meat, fish and some low GI fruits as a treat.

It’s about keeping things simple but using these food groups in a fun, creative way to nourish and support your body. No fads, no myths, no preservatives. Just real food, the way nature intended.
