Welcome to my website, where I share the creative inspirations from my kitchen, my deep passion for cooking and wholefoods, the writings of my heart and my understandings of balanced empowered healing from the inside out.

The recipes and writings you will find here revolve around an imperfect and predominantly plant-based way of eating, the integrative holistic way of life I live today and how I use Macrobiotics to create freedom, balance and wholeness throughout it all.

Today, I work as a Macrobiotic Nutritionist & Life Counsellor, Chef and Teacher. I am also a mother to the most beautiful little girl and a wife to a giant Kiwi man. I feel unbelievably grateful to be here today and thank you for taking the time to stop by.
