My love of cooking and sharing food and food ideas is in my blood.
I have Italian and Maltese heritage, and a love of preparing food from fresh and whole ingredients and connecting with family and friends over meals has been passed down to me, from many generations of passionate foodies. I share this passion with my two gorgeous kids – Giselle 6, and Josh 5.
So how did I find myself as a holistic nutritionist, wellness coach, food blogger, recipe developer, gut cleanse course co-creator and essential oil business creator?
After a career in Human Resources (and always with the nagging feeling like something was “missing”), and desperately needing a change, I began studying nutritional medicine when I was pregnant with Giselle. The biggest reason being because I had battled health issues over the years and I wanted to teach my children about health & wellness.
During my studies, I started to adapt recipes into healthier versions to suit our needs – lots of “family favourite recipes” like butter chicken, caramel slice, and coconut rough.
I knew I had to share what I was learning about food providing “nutritional medicine” to help peoples states of health and wellbeing, and to share the more “healthy versions” of the family friendly recipes I was creating. …and “Becomingness” . my website dedicated to helping women and their families achieve a healthier, happier and fulfilling life – was birthed in 2014.
I have now developed over 200 gluten and dairy free recipes, launched my “Becomingsweet” e-book. My recipes have been featured on Mind Body Green, Mind Body Spirit Festival, Yum. Gluten Free, The Merrymaker Sisters and Beautiful You Academy.
I started to incorporate dōTERRA essential oils into my life and cooking in 2015, and haven’t looked back. What I love about these oils are their purity and versatility – and I have been blessed to introduce them into many families lives, through my recipes and for emotional and overall physical health.
The Gut Health Reboot Program – has provided me with another avenue to help women and families reach a whole new level of self awareness in their health and wellbeing.
