The Nutrition Guru and The Chef are a husband and wife team who share an innate passion for food, eating, cooking, health and nutrition. A university qualified Nutritionist, the Nutrition Guru is often found cooking at midnight with slippers on and enjoys making people’s bellies happy with her healthy treats. She has a passion for busting diet myths and showing people simple and effective ways to live a healthy and happy life by eating whole foods.
Having worked in a number of well-known restaurants in Australia, The Chef is experienced in a number of different cuisines, his specialty being Japanese. When The Chef isn’t cooking, you can catch him on his surf board at the local beach.
Health Philosophy
Their health philosophy is simple. They do not believe in denying, restricting, or removing foods or food groups from the diet or following health fads. Rather, they  follow the ‘everything in moderation’ rule and allow a small treat every so often as part of a healthy relationship with food. Together they aim to inspire people to try new ingredients, to live a healthy life, provide readers with exciting new recipes, share their cooking secrets and provide up to date credible nutrition information.

  1. I love that you don’t deny yourself or give others ideas to ‘diet’ as a way of being healthy. Your philosophy makes sense and is actually following REAL concepts about eating yummy foods in moderation, not starving yourself and becoming obsessed with foods for the wrong reasons. I have in the past been obsessed with reading the back of packets of foods to ‘cut out’ kilojoules. But seriously I know now it’s a waste of time and sanity. Eating a well balanced diet is the key!

  3. Hi!
    I have only in the last couple of years really got into cooking, and last year I too even started my own little food blog! I came across your blog today and decided to follow, as all the recipes that I have seen so far looks absolutely deeelicious!
    I was just wondering about your policy when it comes to other bloggers? If I made one of your dishes, used my own pictures and linked to my “original source” would this be OK with you?
    It was only yesterday I came across someone who didn’t want to have their recipes “typed out directly”, which I was surprised at, as it would be my creation even though it’s not my idea 🙂
    I am really looking forward to dive into your archive of healthy goodness and also to see what will come up next!

    have a wonderful weekend, and keep smiling!
