Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I have always had a n unconditional love for real foods, those who have taste and make me feel good. It is naturally that I started having interest for healthy eating and my holisitic coach certification has given me confidence. I follow my clients through their own personal research about nutrition and help them find what suits them best while covering their nutritional needs. I love hosting cooking classes, helping my clients while grocery shopping and being their inspiration for their healthy lifestyle. This lifestyle also includes the pleasure of eating and preparing colourful and delicious meals. Healthy eating is primarily getting pleasure from nourishing ones body well !
What will we always find in your fridge/pantry?
A lot of seasonal vegetables, fruits, chia seeds, a lot of seeds actually ! Legumes, a few superfoods like berries and spirulina, and spices, I love spices !
What will we never find in your fridge/pantry?
Processed meals and ready made, sugary desserts, meat from animal who have four legs. I eat poultry and fish but on occasion, not more than once a week. I always make sure that these animals come from a natural breeding farms and that garanties them a good life !
