MELANIE R GONZALEZ
My nutritionist training began in 2014. Now I am a certified Nutritionist Therapist and graduate of the prestigious College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM) in London. Healthy living is my passion and I’ve been working hard to create a community based on nutrition, positive thinking and healthy lifestyles here in my Bristol home. Recently I have started taking my message out to the wider world, working with selected brands to develop recipes reflecting my passionate belief that food is medicine.
MY JOURNEY: HOW DID I BECOME A NUTRITIONIST?
My interest in healthy eating started a long time ago when, at the age of 15, I weighed 102kg and was diagnosed with morbid obesity and bulimia. It was a tough time but also the start of a long journey to health and happiness. Today, I’m free of any eating disorder, healthy, happy and ready to share with you guys, “The Art of Mindful Eating”.
Since January 2018, I’ve been following a plastic-free lifestyle and trying to produce zero waste, or as little as possible! It was hard at first but I think we’re doing an amazing job right now. Necessity is the mother of invention as they say, and living plastic-free has allowed my creativity to flow into the collection of recipes, articles and life-experiences featured on my website, CookYourLife. Together with my editor, Joe Locke, we hope to present an exciting mix of healthy recipes, nutritional services and stunning food styling and photography to inspire you to reach your goals for optimum health and happiness.
