Hello, and welcome to Sophie’s Healthy Kitchen… 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 Associate Nutritionist.
Eating for health is extremely important, and something I am incredibly passionate about. 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. Although we cannot always control our health, there are ways in which we can help maintain a healthy lifestyle and improve our wellbeing- and I have been educated to believe that we can do this through diet. Now, a ‘diet’ is not a term I use for weight loss. Magazines and media tell 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. 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 – ‘I am enjoying what I am eating’… Because food should make us feel good too!
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.
As part of my work as a Qualified Nutritionist, I 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.
