A little about me…

Auckland Nutritionist Larissa Beeby's food ethos

Auckland Nutritionist Larissa Beeby’s food ethos

So here is a little taste about me and my personal ethos with food as I often get asked this by my clients.

I love my plant based diet, packed with vegetables and fruits.  Organic if possible but hey I know it doesn’t happen every week so I don’t stress.  I believe when it comes to vegetables and fruit its just more important that you are eating it at all. I eat as seasonally and local as possible.  We eat mainly red meat (the joys of being brought up on a sheep and beef farm) and fish, with a little chicken and pork, so basically it all.  And again local.  We eat mainly home made fresh food.  I do raw, I do cooked, I do vegetarian and some days I might even do vegan.  I do dairy and I do grains. I drink coffee and alcohol occasionally (with meals!).  I eat cake on birthdays and dessert some nights. I enjoy eating out with friends and love eating whatever home cook meals are served by friends and family.  I drink warm water and lemon every morning without fail along with 3L of water throughout the day.

I am not a fan of fizzy drinks, low fat, artificial sweeteners, counting calories, drive throughs, and I don’t do factory farmed, cagged or mass produced anything.

I move my body everyday, it might be walking my dog, yoga (my favourite exercise) and 30min weight lifting sessions.  I get at leat 8 hours sleep everynight.

I’m not saying this is what you have to do to be healthy, its just what I know my body thrives with.  These aren’t my ‘rules’ its just how I normally live!  And I’m not saying this will work for you but I can help you create your own healthy lifestyle.
