My name is Sophie Bertrand, I have a BSc degree in Psychology, an MSc in Nutrition and Eating Disorders and am registered with the Association for Nutrition as a Registered Nutritionist (RNutr). I am co-author of the book Forking Wellness and co-host the Forking Wellness Podcast.
Eating for health is extremely important, and something I am incredibly passionate about… However, so is eating for ENJOYMENT!
There are so many different aspects of our health that we need to be aware of: a healthy heart, healthy kidneys, healthy liver, strong bones, mental health…. The list goes on.
But with all this research flying around, ‘diet culture’ seems to have taken over and made us forget that were actually supposed to be enjoying food – not avoiding it!
Now, a ‘diet’ is not a term I use for weight loss. The media tells us that a diet is something someone goes on when trying to lose weight. However, it is actually a term used to describe the kinds of food one eats.
As a Qualified Nutritionist, I have worked with leading brands in the food industry whether that be on a consultancy basis or recipe development, various public health campaigns and work with clients in a one-to-one setting at the Rhitrition Clinic on Harley St, providing evidence based nutrition to help them achieve their nutrition related goals in a safe environment. I specialise in intuitive eating and pre and post natal nutrition.
We shouldn’t be ‘dieting’ to lose weight, we should be looking at our diet and asking ourselves: ‘Is my body getting all the essential nutrients it needs?’ AND – ‘Am I enjoying what I am eating’… Because food should make us feel good physically and mentally!
Here you can find simple recipes that are as delicious as they are nutritious! ‘Sophie’s Healthy Kitchen’, refers to a healthy relationship with food and I do not promote any kind of ‘fad’ or ‘detox’ diets that encourage restriction of foods. I simply encourage healthy and well balanced eating.
