3. How do you go about writing such a
book, with consideration to the current
scientific evidence, but also staying easy and
engaging to read?
It’s a skill I’ve tried to hone over time! I did all
the research first and once compiled, I worked
on translating it – what does it mean for you
and me in terms of what we eat and how we
live our lives? I’ve tried to give enough science
for those interested, without overwhelming
the reader. The focus is on the foods and how
to put them together in a delicious way – that’s
how I believe it becomes long term!
4. How would you like dietitians to share
your new book with their clients?
I’d love dietitians to recommend the book to
their clients and I hope it offers a resource
they can trust in terms of providing clients
with recipes and further reading. And of
course I’d love any other promotion by fellow
dietitians e.g. sharing a review or purchase
links through newsletters and eDMs; posting or
tagging on social media platforms; or having a
copy sitting in reception.

5. This isn’t your first book. What do you
enjoy most about being an author?
I’m basically a nerd and so love seeing a book
come together. From the first boring pages
of text on the computer screen, to the final
printed colorful book in my hand... It’s so
satisfying and I still think printed books are a
terrific medium for inspiring people to
