I’m Nicola, a Registered Nutritionist, food lover, runner and believer in holistic well being.
I believe in eating natural, whole foods and a balanced approach to eating well. I’m passionate about helping people find their own version of healthy, and to develop a healthy relationship with food. This blog is designed to inspire you to live a happy, nourished life and find balance.
I also help others with nutrition through online nutrition consulting through my shop. I work with clients to find solutions that work for them and their lifestyles – because there are many ways to eat healthy. I also work to help you develop a better relationship
A little bit about me…
I live in a small town in NZ with my cat, dog and husband. While sometimes I miss city living, there’s a lot to love about small town living. I love the rural lifestyle and the fact that it takes me 10 minutes to drive to work, or 30 minutes to walk. We have a big backyard and I grow my own seasonal vegetables and fruit, all which go towards making yummy, nourishing recipes.
I’ve always had an interest in food, cooking and health. Unfortunately, I spent my teenage years and some of my early 20s struggling with poor body image and some pretty unhealthy food habits, including emotional eating. Thankfully though I found my way through that and now have a great, balanced relationship with food and a positive body image.
I focus on eating plenty of plant based foods and other nutrient rich, wholesome foods the majority of the time and I feel good for it. I believe it’s fine to have treats occasionally. I love going out in the weekend and enjoying a coffee and a sweet treat. It’s part of what makes life good for me. I love running and have completed 3 half marathons and one full marathon. I attend cross fit classes a couple of times a week. Walking my dog is also something I enjoy.
