Hi there, thanks for checking out my site. I’m Madeleine, a Nutritionist, Dietitian and Nurse. Having worked in the healthcare industry for 16 years I have seen the effects that malnutrition, inadequate diets and unhealthy food behaviours have on one’s health. I know how essential a nutritious diet is to chronic disease prevention and management, as well as establishing a healthy relationship with food.
That Healthy Girl was started as an online space to share my passion and knowledge on all things food and nutrition, while myth-busting topical nutrition issues for my friends and family.
I have been intrigued by food my whole life, and was fortunately exposed to a healthy diet growing up (thanks to Mum and Dad). This balanced upbringing, as well as my own struggles with food intolerance has given me a greater appreciation for good nutrition, and the intrinsic relationship nutrients have on so many aspects of our health.
For years nutrition was overlooked as a contributor to health, however thanks to ongoing and ever changing nutrition research, I believe there is nutrition resurgence occurring, and I’m absolutely thrilled to be part of it.
The boring stuff (formal qualifications): I’m an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) and a member of the Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA). In addition to being a Dietitian, I am also a Registered Nurse (RN), registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.
I have degrees in Health Science, majoring in Nutrition and Dietetics, as well as a Bachelor of Nursing. I believe learning is a life long venture, the more you know, the more you realise you need to learn.
- I am petrified of heights, and prefer to keep myself firmly on ground
- I have travelled the world extensively and of course sampled local cuisine along the way, my favourite place being Dubrovnik with it’s fresh seafood smorgasbords and homemade bread
Ultimately, I love helping people, and do hope that at the very least I can inspire you to make healthier choices to be the best version of yourself.
Thanks for stopping by, Madeleine.
