How Can I Help YOU?

Most of us want the same things in life; to be healthy so we can enjoy who and what we work hard for. How we are eating in the modern world can get in the way of this. How we are eating as a species is killing us, harming our planet and threatening quality of life for most species on the planet. Sounds fatalistic but it’s true and my life’s calling and mission is to help people develop a healthy relationship with food, their body and the planet.

The problem with the ‘nutritional and diet’ approach is that people are drowning in ‘nutritional confusion’ and often going from one diet to the next and never really understanding what and how to eat that is truly right for their body.

When I was the Victorian Chair of Nutrition Australia, I realized that the average person didn’t stand a chance to figure it out when there was so much conflicting information put out to the world by experts. More information does not lead to clarity, people, even professionals are more confused than ever.

Through years of searching, observation, meditation and scientific research, I developed a philosophical approach to understanding what it is we are meant to be eating and it has been a game changer for seekers including nutrition professionals as it teaches them to think for themselves based on what works in nature, rather than be told what they should and shouldn’t eat. I have traveled the earth sharing this life-changing message.

I quickly realized that I am limited in those I can reach and get into the kitchen with (which is the place where people have the most profound changes to their wellbeing). I learned that I needed to teach my philosophies, concepts, and strategies to other passionate holistic foodies, nutritionists and wellbeing professionals to become Return to Food Coaches who wanted to make a profound difference in their life and those they touch with this work.

If this resonates with you, I invite you to explore the programs below where I share the transformational process I’ve developed based on over 25 years of work with real people in the kitchen, in their homes, minds, and hearts.


So What Does That Mean for You?

There are several ways I’d love to help you;

  • through my online coaching programs that show you how to trade in the ‘white stuff’ for the right stuff by getting off of processed food and transitioning you to real food, deliciously.
  • helping you develop a business as a Food Coach helping people return to eating real food and creating your own supportive community through the Return to Food Academy.
  • inviting you to become part of the Return to Food community, joining with others who are genuinely committed to making our planet healthier.

Clearly, the world needs tens of thousands of us working powerfully together, to impact our communities. I would love it if you joined us!
