We all would love to eat better
But when it comes down to it, many of us simply don’t know how
This is exactly how my journey into nutrition unfolded.
I was that teenager with a healthy curiosity and a total lack of guidance to make the right food choices.
Home economics at high school was a starting point, but it certainly left a lot to be desired
A complicated relationship with food and dietary guidelines.
I knew what I SHOULD eat,
but I simply couldn’t make the process enjoyable.
So I set out to truly understand the food on my plate…
…and ultimately fuelled a deep passion for food literacy.
What began with a Bachelor of Nutrition Science at Queensland University of Technology quickly created a hunger for more.
I realised there was so much to our relationship with food and its impact on our health, and I had only scratched the surface.
So I added an Honours degree in Biomedical Sciences, followed by a phenomenal amount of hours completing a PhD in public health nutrition with a focus on the development, validation and assessment of food literacy.
I don’t do things by halves, as you can tell.
