Nutrition for Healthy & Happy Living


Nutrition is the foundation of good health and well-being.

By making informed food choices and adopting healthy eating habits, we can enjoy a better quality of life and reduce the risk of various health problems or even cure them. Nutrition impacts not only physical health but also mental and emotional wellbeing.

This is why nutrition is so important!

NUTRITION has always been a very important aspect in my life. First of all, I was born in Italy, a country with a rich food culture, where simple and healthy ingredients are the heart of our cuisine. Fond memories of cooking with my grandmothers and sharing laughter-filled family meals are deeply ingrained in me. The joy of culinary experimentation alongside my father further fueled my passion for food.

Becoming a mother amplified the significance of nutrition, particularly as my daughter faced numerous food intolerances. This prompted me to delve into extensive research on nutrition, focusing on gut health and the pivotal role of the microbiome. Through this journey, I uncovered that my own persistent low iron levels stemmed from gluten intolerance hindering its absorption. Adapting our family’s diet to accommodate these intolerances, I learned to eliminate both lactose and gluten from our diet whilst still preparing tasty, balanced, and healthy meals and snacks.

This transformative experience led me to pursue a career as a nutritionist, blending Western scientific knowledge with the holistic principles of Yogic, Ayurvedic, and Mediterranean nutritional practices.

My approach to nutrition

 There are so many different approaches to nutrition, that can often leave one feeling totally overwhelmed and lost with all what we read about trendy diets, fasting trends and personal anecdotes.

My approach to nutrition integrates the latest scientific research on healthy eating with the wisdom of Mediterranean, Yogic and Ayurvedic traditions.

I don’t believe in short-term dietary changes for weight loss or symptom management, but I promote a sustainable lifestyle habits that support long-term health and vitality.

I view nutrition holistically, as an integral component of one’s lifestyle. I also look at important  factors beyond food that influence nutrition and the overall health, such as restoring your circadian rhythm, stress management, physical activity, social connections, and environmental exposures. By addressing these multifaceted aspects of nutrition within a holistic framework, I help you to optimise your overall health and well-being, and foster a sense of balance, vitality, and harmony within yourself and your environment.

My approach to nutrition is underpinned by a spirit of love: Love for ourselves for those we nourish through cooking, Love for the Earth and the food that it offers us.
