Stephanie is a Sydney based Accredited Nutritionist that holds the philosophy, “being healthy is about finding the perfect balance between feeling your best without feeling deprived”. Stephanie also believes that good health starts in the gut and therefore has a special interest in digestive health.
Coming from a corporate background, Stephanie understands what it’s like to be busy, stressed out and nutritionally depleted. Using her own personal experiences and acquired knowledge, Stephanie provides her clients with practical nutrition advice that’s realistic and fits into their busy lifestyle, without creating added stress. When Stephanie isn’t seeing clients at her Double Bay clinic, she enjoys running Nutritional Cooking Classes teaching people how to create and implement healthy everyday eating, in a fun hands-on way.
Her diet very closely reflects the Mediterranean Diet. Partly because it is one of the most well research and health-promoting diets around and partly because she's grown up on it. That being said Steph is very much a foodie and enjoy all types of food, mostly being good quality and minimally processed. We are huge fans of Steph's food philosophy and were lucky enough to spend five minutes with her to discover her favourites in all things food and health.
Fish, ideally wild and sustainable.
I’m a massive foodie so this one is really tough but my favourite would have to be Apollo.
Grapefruit or frozen berries followed by a boiled egg on rice thins with avo or hummus and a sprinkle of dukka and chilli flakes.
Eat breakfast. I’ve never been good at brunch cause I wake up really early with a growling belly.
Seeds. Mostly pepita, sesame or sunflower.
Other than Apollo, Ester and 10 William St are my kind of date night. Amazing food, great service, good atmosphere yet still intimate.
Greek Islands. Maybe because it’s in my blood but I can never get enough of that perfectly grilled octopus with lemony tzaziki and juicy Greek salads. The view is pretty special too.
Food in it’s complete and natural form.
Last year I was in Ravello on the Amalfi Coast for a wedding and I did the Nona Orsola Cooking Course with a few girlfriends. They have this incredible organic green garden which we picked all the fresh produce from and then cooked up a traditional Italian Feast. We then ate ourselves into a food coma, timed perfectly for our afternoon siesta. Heaven.
Do more yoga, meditation and drink more water.
Bolognese and vegetable bake.
Ice-cream. It’s my biggest weakness. Out of sight, out of mind!
