WHAT I BELIEVE IN
I believe in the power of food. I believe in how it can nourish and rebalance the body and support healing when the right nutrients for each individual are found and introduced.
I experienced it with my own health journey dealing with an autoimmune thyroid condition and on my clients. First as a personal chef when through my cooking I would see people smile, appreciate their meals and improve health issues and conditions. It was what I made with my hands that had that power.
And then as a nutritional therapist where I learned about the biochemistry, the physiology and the different pathologies of the body. Symptoms of any condition are a manifestation of an imbalance in the body and as every system in it is interconnected, they can often influence and affect each other.
Through nutritional therapy I’m able to search for the root cause of the problem and support my clients in optimising their health, whatever that journey may entail. I’m able to share my knowledge about plant based nutrition to encourage them to include more plant variety in their diets to support gut, immune and hormonal health and my experience with autoimmune, thyroid, skin and hormonal conditions empowering them to know what could be the first step to take towards improving their own individual health and lifestyle.
I'm a nutritional therapist that graduated from the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London and a medicinal chef that gained her training from the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts in New York.
Born in Italy, I developed my passion for cooking since a young age and developed a strong belief in the healing power of food that led me to my professional trainings.
In New York I worked as a private chef for people with special dietary needs as well as a vegan pastry chef in leading restaurants.
And that’s where the sweet before nutrition comes from.
Since childhood I helped my mom baking cakes and sweets, and after finding out about my lactose intolerance and autoimmune condition, I was forced to seek alternatives to dairy and traditional pastry and started learning about vegan cooking which later sparked my interest in plant based eating.
I'm currently working as nutritional therapist specialising in plant based nutrition, autoimmune and thyroid health, hormonal and skin conditions. I also work as a plant based chef and as a private chef teaching private and group medicinal cooking classes, as well as sharing my knowledge in preparing sinful desserts and chocolate.
And I contribute as a health and food writer for both uk and american based publications where I love writing about recipes, health tips and advice, and the nutritional values of foods.
