How do you struggle with nutrition?

How can you eat healthily when you lack time, energy or free hands to cook? How do you eat balanced meals if you are out of balance? And how do you nourish yourself and your family? As a recognized dietitian and mom, I give you practical answers to all your nutritional questions and struggles in every vulnerable phase of your family’s adventure. Do you have questions about plant-based nutrition or how nutrition can contribute to your physical and emotional well being? Then I’d love to help you too! I keep it cool, pinky promise! I will not put you on a diet, I do not believe in nutribullshit (anymore) and, next to my straight forward nutritional advice, I can also guide your through the world of supplements.
