You may have come across my website because you have decided to take serious steps to positively change your life by embracing a healthy lifestyle. Or maybe you are just in search for some yummy but healthy recipes to try out. Whatever the reason, I am happy to welcome you to the Life of Goodness website where I hope you will find what you are looking for!
I am a Nutrition and Dietetics University student and my aim is to become a qualified health professional who is able to help people towards better health through positive changes in diet and mindset. The Life of Goodness website is a way of sharing my passion for health, healthy cooking and wellness as I know first hand that food can heal the body from the inside out not only physically but also mentally.
I do not believe in quick fix or fad diets as these often do more harm than good in the long run. I do, however, believe we can heal our bodies through a healthy lifestyle eating whole and natural foods and through a willingness to change. The choice is entirely yours!
IF YOU SHOW UP EACH DAY WITH LOVE AND KINDNESS IN YOUR HEART THE WORLD AROUND YOU WILL GIVE BACK THE LOVE AND KINDNESS YOU DESERVE.
My passion to follow a natural “whole food diet” began as a way to combat my intolerances to certain foods and food additives and as a means to improve food digestion. Before this time my body had a lot of difficulty absorbing nutrients from food and consequently I suffered from both weight gain and weight loss, severe bloating, nausea, fatigue, hormonal issues, mood changes and foggy brain. I was often unwell and regularly took antibiotics prescribed by my doctors for various health issues.
It got to the point where my body (and mind) just had enough, as nothing I did seemed to ease my discomfort. I was well and truly ready to change my life – forever – and determined to find a ‘cure’. I began by cutting out the foods that I believed were causing me discomfort–> gluten, processed sugar and processed foods. I started incorporating more fibre from fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and gluten free whole grains. By simply making these changes to my diet and adjusting my lifestyle I now feel more energised, nourished, happy, motivated, fit and healthy.
Becoming mindful about what you eat allows you to connect with nature and uncovers the healing powers it can provide you.
Life of goodness was created to inspire you to be the healthiest version of yourself from the inside out. On my website you will find nourishing, easy, and delicious recipes using only natural whole food ingredients, mostly plant based, free from gluten, dairy and processed sugar. I also provide health tips to help you along your journey. I changed my life and I am here to support you to positively change yours!
