I’m Jordan — a Qualified Nutritionist and GAPS Practitioner
Most days (well every day) you’ll find me in my kitchen whipping up something nourishing and delicious to share with my boyfriend. You’ll also find me in the office doing one-on-one nutrition consultations or working on my laptop drinking copious amounts of herbal tea with a big smile on my face.
As well as my work, I’m also a foodie, recipe developer, photographer, food stylist, educator, researcher, writer, cookbook author, mountain enthusiast, and coffee and tea connoisseur.
My Food Philosophy
As a nutritionist, I get a LOT of questions asking me how I eat. People want to know what kind of diet I’m on. If I eat meat or fruit or nuts. They want to know if I fast daily or just on Tuesdays; or whether I avoid nightshades or oxalates or fructose. The list goes on.To be honest, what I do is much simpler than that. I eat intuitively. I eat what I feel like I need to eat at any given time. What I eat changes from day to day, and from week to week. However, my food philosophy never changes.
Here are the six simple rules I follow:
Eat food your great grandmother would recognise.
Less is more when it comes to ingredients.
Include a wide variety of vegetables—you can always add more.
Just because the ingredients change, doesn’t mean the menu has to. There is always a healthier alternative to your favourite foods.
Eat to be well, not to be thin.
Sort your gut health out.
There is no perfect diet that will work for everyone
What works for me may not work for you. Finding your own solution and balance is important. This is something I really encourage my clients to do. However, it takes practice. The nutritional advice I give to my clients is based on their lifestyle, their symptoms, their individual needs and their unique body
My advice to you is: stop trying to fit into a box you’re not meant to be in. Learn to listen to your body, be sensitive to your needs, educate yourself and don’t deprive yourself of what your body is asking for. Deprivation is not the answer; self-respect and self-love is. Nourishing your body with real food is an act of self-love. It feels SO good to feel GOOD, and I want everyone single person to experience it too. We are all in this together.
If you want 2019 to be the year you find your own body balance and get your health back on track, I can help you.
