Here are some answers to questions I am often asked:

What is the difference between a nutritionist and a dietitian?

In Australia, a nutritionist can have extensive education and experience...or almost next to none.  A dieitian must have tertiary qualifications - usually a 4-year degree plus professional placements in hospitals and public health settings.

Why choose a dietitian that focuses exclusively on plant-based diets?

A vegan dietitian that lives and thrives on a vegan lifestyle has first-hand experience on what it means to adopt and maintain a vegan lifestyle when it comes to health, food and social navigation.

How can a dietitian help me?

It is helpful to have a dietitian support you personally because every lifestyle, challenge, concern and situation is different.  A dietitian can help with making sure you are eating for optimal health, identify areas of concern, make sure any supplements you need are addressed along with support for sporting, performance, families and for many health conditions and medical issues.  You can expect anything from a meal plan to coaching children to eat healthily to specific meal and ingredient options, supplement recommendations.

In other words - a professional to walk with you on your journey of feeling amazing and empowered on a vegan or plant-based diet.
