My name is Pixie, and I’m a registered associate nutritionist (ANutr) (MSc), award-winning food blogger, writer, and speaker.
I eat a plant-based/vegetarian diet, using the scientific definition of plant-based meaning ‘a diet based on plants’, not necessarily a diet solely consisting of plants. This is deliberately vague as I don’t really believe in labeling myself or restricting myself if I want a good old-fashioned burger and fries! Food should not only make you healthy but needs to taste good and make you happy, otherwise what really is the point?
My food journey has taken me from stereotypical college student (think frozen ready meals), to cutting out every food group I could think of in a pursuit of health (no meat, fish, eggs, dairy, soy, gluten, refined sugar, or joy), to now having a much more balanced and happy approach to food and health.
I am a scientist and a skeptic, so I don’t believe in alternative medicine, or that diet changes can cure everything. That’s just not how the human body works. I do have a passion for helping people to improve their scientific literacy and be more skeptical about the advice circulating online (spoiler alert: 90% of it is BS), and I intend to use it.
As a nutritionist, I work with clients on improving their relationships with food using non-diet approaches. I’m an advocate for Health At Every Size, so you won’t find any diet culture crap here.
