Why Nutrition Creative?
Don’t worry – this isn’t an autobiography. It’s an introduction; plain and simple. There are just three things you need to know about me and what that means for my endeavours as a Nutritionist:
Food is Essential
It sustains each and every one of us. It influences all aspects of living throughout our lifespan. Food can be the reason you find it difficult to wake up in the morning, or the reason you can run a marathon. It provides your body with the energy you need to sustain your specific lifestyle.
I am a foodie that loves to cook, eat, watch cookery programmes and dine out regularly. For me, food is as much fuel for the soul as it is for the body and part of my work as a Nutritionist is hopefully to inspire others, to feel the same.
Quality of Life is Paramount
Our diet and lifestyle can be the root cause of illness or exacerbate health problems. By knowing what works best for you with regard to nutrition, exercise and the knowledge required to adapt and live a healthy lifestyle, your quality of living will improve.
Balance is Key
My recommendations as a Nutritionist will always take into account your lifestyle, goals and overall health. This personalised approach will be measured against appropriate evidence-based guidelines to provide options for you to choose from. What works for you, may not work for someone else and when needed, that’s where I come in.
I am a reflective practitioner and I will not ask you to fit within a framework. Instead, you as a client will help to inform me of how that framework can be adapted to your needs. I don’t profess to know all the answers and with research and reflection, creative solutions can be developed for you to use intuitively.
One more thing…
Where possible, I will aim to write about nutrition and specific areas of interest that I encounter in my practice. If you can’t find what you’re looking for and would like to know how working with a nutritionist could help you achieve your health goals, please feel free to get in touch.
