Hi! I’m Emily.
Nutritionist. Foodie. Plant-lover. Science Nerd.
Welcome to Nutrition Larder!
Thank you for visiting my little corner of the internet.
I grew up with pretty ‘normal’ British grub of meat, dairy and potatoes, and not really minding my mum’s words to eat my veggies! I have always been passionate about cooking but it took a while for the penny to drop that what I was eating – or more like what I wasn’t eating was really impacting my energy levels and affecting my day to day living. I was constantly tired, napping during the day and not really understanding my body’s signals at all. Fast forward a few years and more, and I’m amazed to see how listening to my body and having a balanced diet has just about made me into the happy-go-lucky nerd that I am today.
What do I mean when I say ‘balanced‘?
We know healthy eating is good for us, not just because the science says so, but from how we feel. But, I do think it’s important to remind ourselves that there is much more to food than just nutrients. It’s sharing a special meal with your best friends or celebrating your kid’s birthday with rich chocolate cake smothered in buttercream icing. Food is so ingrained in our everyday life, our culture, our history, our family. It’s listening to your body, savouring each moment and enjoying every mouthful. Eating with satisfaction and without punishment. You know what, that’s pretty great – I choose that life!
Before moving to Australia, I used to work as a private chef (and nutritionist) on superyachts for over five years, so I love making sure healthy food tastes damn good too, inspired by all corners of the globe!
‘Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.’
I hope you enjoy Nutrition Larder.
