M Y E X P E R I E N C E . . .
I am an Accredited Naturopath with experience in teaching plant-based cooking classes, delivering plant-based nutrition workshops and teaching content to Naturopathy and Nutrition Advanced Diploma students.
My journey into the plant-based eating began as a 15-year-old. As I watched footage on the news of our drought-stricken land in Australia, I had a light bulb moment. I realised that the clearing of our land for livestock agriculture affected our environment and our climate, and led to major issues in animal welfare.
So I stopped eating meat. I was the only person in my family to do so at the time. As I researched more, I learned about how livestock production is the top contributor to climate change, perpetuates food shortages globally (especially in developing / low socio-economic countries), and perpetuates and institutionalises cruelty to humans working in the livestock industry as well as the animals. Thus, as a result of my research, I adopted a vegan diet.
As I studied Naturopathy and Nutrition I researched the health advantages of the whole food plant-based diet - there are so many health advantages! I learned that there is a highly educated group of health professionals ranging from Doctors, Naturopaths, Cardiologists, Psychologists etc. who believe, based on the evidence at hand, that physiologically, we are in fact herbivores. I have watched as more and more research and information has come available to support the health benefits and the environmental benefits of a plant-based diet.
I love the lifestyle that I choose to lead - from a health perspective, an ecological perspective, a compassionate perspective, an ethical perspective and a humanitarian perspective. It brings me such joy! I also know the challenges that individuals may face as they adopt a veg*n lifestyle. And so it is my absolute pleasure to be a resource for those who are making the change to this lifestyle.
