Oh Hey There! I’m Olivia!
I’m an Australian Accredited Nutritionist.
What does that mean? I means that I went to university for four years and learnt what real nutrition was over a space of four years. This is instead of getting a certification from doing some e-course on the internet.
Food has always been a big part of my life! Mainly because I love eating.
I grew up on a sheep and cattle station/ranch in South-West Queensland (think: 12 hours west of Brisbane) and always knew where my meat came from, because we grew it! During these early years, I was homeschooled with my brother and sister.
At twelve, I was sent to boarding school as the education out west was limited and boy-oh-boy! Was that a shock to the system!
I was at boarding school for six years and the biggest thing that I gained from that experience was that I did actually like being active and eating healthy wasn’t gross.
Once graduated, I decided to start my studies in Sport and Exercise Science, before moving to the Sunshine Coast, QLD to complete a degree in Nutrition.
I worked for a couple of years in various different jobs and then in 2013, came to Canada for a working holiday. I ended up in the small surfing town of Tofino with this amazing guy called Alex. Long story short, I was supposed to be in Canada for 2 years… it’s now been 4.
After a bit of a hiatus from being a nutritionist, I am back again because I am so sick of all the get skinny fast gimmicks and people telling me that bananas are bad for me. Fact: Bananas are the best!
And instead of setting up a clinic, I decided to do it online so that I can reach you from the comfort of your own home. But not in a stalker way. In a nice neighbourly way.
So that is me. I like food, I move around a lot and I like bananas (but also all food)
If you also like food, make sure to connect with me.
Have a great day,
