CHANGING BEHAVIOURS TO IMPROVE THE WELLBEING
OF THE PLANET AND PEOPLE
"At a time when there is an unparalleled threat to the future health and wellbeing of citizens throughout the world, we must turn this potential catastrophe into an opportunity manifesting as a renaissance in the production, distribution and consumption of healthy, seasonal and local food. This is a time to build resilience and health into our food systems, from the ground up."

What do we mean by
a sustainable diet?
How food is produced affects the planet by the greenhouse gas emissions it emits and therefore changing our consumer habits towards making sustainable food choices in our diet we can reduce the economic, social and environmental impact.
We do this in three ways, consume less meat and dairy intake, buy more locally sourced
and seasonal foods and throw away less food.

Eating patterns for health and environmental sustainability
One of the barriers to the wider uptake of consuming more sustainable food and healthier diets is a lack of understanding of the often complex issues relating to what constitutes sustainable production, what constitutes a healthy diet to then how to eat sustainably to improve your wellbeing.
I help people reduce their carbon footprint by following the specific criteria in achieving a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by recommending sustainable food choices in their diet by encouraging people to eat less meat and dairy, buy more locally sourced and seasonal foods and learn how to reduce their food waste with online coaching to influence changing behaviours toward living sustainably.
I hold certificates in nutrition with a special interest in food sustainability, human
behaviour and the environment.
