Welcome to Joyful Eating
I’m overjoyed that you’ve stopped by to learn more about me and Joyful Eating. It is my deepest hope that through my work I can help you relax your eating rules and learn to listen to and trust your own body.
I believe that eating shouldn’t be confusing, stressful, anxiety-provoking or a source of guilt and shame, but that nourishing your body can be one of life’s joys!
If you’re sick of attempting to control your eating or restricting and depriving yourself to fail yet again another diet, you’re in the right place. If you’re ready to explore another way of care for yourself, without a focus on your weight, you’re in the right place.
About Me, Tansy
Author | Nutrition Writer | Nutritionist | Recipe Developer
specialising in a non-diet and mindful eating approach
ANutr (Associate Nutritionist – The Nutrition Society of Australia), BAppSc(Hons), GCertHumNutr
I am an author, nutrition writer, recipe developer and university qualified nutritionist with a passion for inspiring people to enjoy eating to nourish their body and for the pure pleasure of it—because I believe that eating is one of life’s joys.
I believe that feeding ourselves shouldn’t be about deprivation, counting calories, portion control, which I believe do more to sabotage our health and happiness. It is my belief, through personal experience, exploration of the scientific literature and working with clients (in the past) that when we relax our diet rules and focus on the experience of eating, we can nourish our bodies in an intuitive and joyful way.
My aim, through my writing and workshops, is to demystify diet and nutrition myths, dispel confusion and anxiety often associated with eating. I want to promote a joyful attitude towards food, irrespective of a persons weight or size—because these aren’t accurate measures of health and happiness anyway!
I have experience providing one-on-one and group coaching, workshops, writing food and nutrition articles and recipe development. I incorporate a non-dieting approach, intuitive eating, mindful eating, eating psychology, a passion for cooking and a love of eating into my work. You can find me sipping a latte, drooling over cookbooks, tapping away at my laptop or chopping veggies in the kitchen—all are joys to me!
Work with Me
Writing and Recipe Development
I love writing! I love the feeling of tapping away at my keyboard and being able to express myself with more consideration and reflection than is possible face-to-face.
Hey, I love writing so much and am so committed to helping people free themselves of diets that I write for the joy of it! I write a regular blog on this site and share some of my tried and tested recipes.
However, to spread the message of Joyful Eating and to inspire creativity in the kitchen, I write on other platforms. I write a weekly recipe with an associated nutrition message for New World stores in Christchurch, New Zealand. I have also had work published on various wellness websites such as The Wellness Report, Yoga Journal Singapore (now Yogahood Online), Balanced Living Asia and on some blogs.
I’d like to write more. So, if you’d like a guest post or are looking for a regular contributor to your magazine, newsletter or other written medium get in touch.
