In 2016, I had little time to nurture my passion for Joyful Eating as I was completing other endeavours. I completed postgraduate studies in nutrition and gained a far more comprehensive understanding of our digestive system and the misconceptions about healthy eating that we are exposed to in mainstream media and by self-proclaimed ‘health coaches’ and gurus.
Gaining clarify on my food philosophy
Through my contributions in 2016 at The Eating Issues Centre (now Eating Disorders Queensland) and my involvement with Wellness Coaching Australia, I gained greater clarity on my professional values and nutritional philosophy, which augment my beliefs and approaches with Joyful Eating.
As 2016 came to an end, I embraced what matters most to me and let go of what does not. I ended 2016 by embarking on the next chapter of my journey exploring wellness and nutrition in Singapore. The journey came with challenges and obstacles, but also new insights and a broader perspective of how we approach our health and adopt healthier lifestyle behaviours.
In 2018, I moved to Christchurch, New Zealand, where I continue to work in recipe development, nutrition counselling and supporting those in recovery from eating disorders.
Through this blog, I hope to share my insights and experiences and continue to build on the philosophy of Joyful Eating.
Since beginning this blog, I have written about my story to Joyful Eating and books.
