Reducing Your Environmental Footprint

If you are concerned about agricultural impacts on greenhouse gas emissions, land and water resource usage, as well as ecosystem degradation, and wish to protect our environment, our programs can help you to understand how everyday food choices relate to these issues.


How we work

We ‍‍‍re‍‍‍commend choosing either the Skilled or Expert programme. If you're unsure, the Basics might be best.


‍‍‍‍‍‍Get in touch by e-mail or text, or simply give us a call to discuss your specific needs and to book an appointment‍‍‍.


Join your nutritionist either in-person or online for your first consult, and begin your path toward optimal health and well-being‍‍‍!

Exercise and Sports Nutrition

Concerns About Food Safety

If you are concerned about the safety of the foods that you consume in terms of chemical, biological and environmental contaminants, our programs can help you. Key features of this discussion include the use of hormones, antibiotics, and pesticides in food production.

Food Addiction

When it comes to your food choices, we help you to understand how animal and processed foods, in particular, defy satiety mechanisms, creating a powerful pleasure trap for the human body, while mimicking physiological effects apparent in other common forms of addiction.
