Hi and welcome! I'm Melanie, a university-qualified Nutritionist with First Class Honours.
Well *la-di-da* right? I know, I think it sounds a bit OTT too.
But don't worry, I'm super easy-going and not uptight about dietary habits at all because I *LOVE* good food way too much. I mean really love it. The way it looks, the way it smells, the process of cooking it, the joy in sharing it, and the love of discovering something new about it. Which is what lead me to start Naturally Nutritious in the first place.
I really wanted to make cooking and food in general approachable and enjoyable.
Sometimes people get so freaked out when I tell them I'm a nutritionist, like suddenly I have super powers and I know that they ate some cake earlier in the day and am judging them for it.
I'm actually the nutritionist who is going to ask where my slice is! Because, I mean...cake and YUM!
Food for me, of course, is about nourishment, but also about connection, celebration and joy. So you won't ever see me making 'guilt-free' anything or hiding the fact that I love a dirty martini and half-pint of ice cream on a Friday...and after being in this industry for a while now, I get the feeling that you guys do too ;)
So I'd love for you to follow along on my cooking journey and enjoy everything that food has to offer with me.
Shall we say a big cheers to that?
