Hello there, I’m Lovoni, a certified nutritional therapist specializing in weight loss and holistic health and well being. I haven’t always been a nutritionist though: For over 25 years I worked as a recipe developer, food stylist and food editor. I’ve co-written over 60 cookbooks, authored six cookbooks and have self-published one. It was because of this cookbook, titled ‘Simple, Fresh, Delicious’, that I came to host my own national Canadian food show of the same title. The message of the show was simple: eat healthfully, cook what you can from scratch and know about the food you’re cooking.
Born and raised in Sydney, Australia I’ve lived in North America for over 20 years: first in Canada and now in the heartland of the USA. I studied culinary arts in Sydney which led me to recipe development, food styling and hosting a television show. I’ve photographed several food projects for companies and everything on my website, I have styled and photographed. I’ve always been interested in food as a way of healing and helping so many people so I decided to change career paths and studied nutrition and food science to become a certified nutritionist.
My lengthy career creating recipes for publishers, television networks and companies big and small means I’m able to create mouthwatering and approachable recipes and meal plans for my clients. Each client has different needs and tastes so I tailor meal plans and recipes to suit each client. My focus is having people enjoy a good variety of nutrients. I believe in positive nutrition promoting flexibility, moderation and enjoyment. I’ll turn down the confusion and ‘noise’ surrounding healthy eating and focus on creating a solid, lasting foundation. I’ll work with you to develop good habits because you deserve to feel better and have a strong, well-nourished body that you feel good in.
Good food not only helps prevent disease it also contributes to our mental state and can make us feel vibrant and alive. Nutrient-dense food can impart a feeling of calm and empowerment because you’re taking control and doing something positive for yourself. Making changes to your diet, however small, can have a positive and powerful affect on the road to better health. By taking a holistic, compassionate approach, I’ll look at several aspects of your well- being, not just food.
I want you to feel excited about this journey you’ve chosen. You’re bravely empowering yourself by creating a new, healthier you and a more abundant life.
