I’m Lindsy, Holistic Nutritionist in training, lover of nature, animals, and of course delicious whole foods!
My journey into holistic nutrition was a slow organic process, kind of like a mini evolution over time. An evolution that brought me and food to where we are today.
I’ve always had a love of food, everything from cheese, pasta, seafood and cake was fair game. That was until my early 20’s when my stomach started acting up. Having a family history of gastrointestinal issues including Crohn’s and Colitis, this was a big wake-up call.
That’s when I decided to ditch processed food and started buying what I like to call “real food“. I swapped bottled salad dressing for homemade olive oil bases creations, kicked my favourite pre-made Alfredo pasta sauce to the curb, and slowly started to build my whole foods (real food) pantry, from the ground up.
From my mid 20’s on I turned into a total food nerd. If I wasn’t finding new recipes online or buying waaayy to many new cookbooks, I was researching the physical, emotional and environmental impact that our modern-day industrialized food system has on both us and the planet. I just couldn’t get enough, I was a woman obsessed!
Fast forward to today. My whole foods pantry is bursting full of nutritious real food, and I’m currently following my passion and studying to become a certified Holistic Nutritionist. Why? Because I want real answers, not just a trendy article telling me the top 5 foods I should (or shouldn’t) be eating this week.
So there it is — the short version of my not-so-short journey to whole health. I hope you’ll join me as I continue to learn and share my passion for nutrition and living a balanced lifestyle, from the inside out!
