I had the pleasure of meeting Emma Ellice-Flint through the Pilates Studio I have been going to for the past 7 years. They're passionate about the whole body, not just keeping you fit and strong.
I was so inspired by Emma's knowledge of food and what makes you well, I decided I wanted to work with her and bring her knowledge and expertise into a more public arena. Hence the birth of The Vital You. I have interviewed Emma for this blog so that you can meet her in advance of our Vital You Weekend on 13-15 March.
What inspired you to become a nutritionist after being a chef?
When I was a chef I was always trying to experiment with healthy practices in the kitchen, specifically by creating new solutions to traditional recipes. I enjoyed it a lot. Also, at the time I was running a catering company, and loved seeing how much of a difference delivering a healthier service made to my clients’ working day. So it just seemed like a natural progression to explore my passion for nutrition further.
What can participants expect to get out of the weekend?
The opportunity to really get hands-on with healthy food in a professional, welcoming environment is unique. My focus is all about creativity, confidence and knowledge in eating. We’re going to be experimenting with a range of wholesome, locally sourced and fresh foods in order to gain greater confidence in the kitchen. There will also be a key focus on living an all-rounded, healthy lifestyle during the weekend - with lots of exciting activities planned!
What excites you about The Vital You Weekend and why did you agree to become involved?
Sharing my knowledge and experience of good, healthy food is a passion of mine. The chance to not only talk to people about health, but also to show them and guide them, is an opportunity I look forward to. It’s one thing to read about health; it’s a whole different experience immersing yourself in practical demonstrations and a community of similarly minded people. The weekend will be a really unique experience, and I’m not sure that it’s even being offered anywhere else in Australia.
