about Me

I’m a registered dietitian living in Cape Town, South Africa. Before becoming a dietitian, I spent a decade in the media industry as a journalist, content creator and magazine editor. I now create science-based nutrition content and believe in the power of nutrition education and supporting environments to facilitate behaviour change and help prevent and manage disease.

Content includes articles on:

  • Picky eating
  • Food preferences
