I am Spanish and for professional reasons I have lived for over 14 years in Belgium and Sweden.
These years have brought with them many valuable and enriching exchanges. I have enjoyed the opportunity to live in a multicultural environment, to meet people from all over the world, to learn new languages and ways of looking at things, to discover new ingredients and ways of cooking them.
I currently live in Brussels with my husband and our three children.
My professional experience lies in Management and Business Administration, both in Spain and in England. I hold an MBA from Spain, as well as a degree in Marketing Management from Belgium and I have worked for the multinational brands MasterCard, Peugeot and Atlas Copco.
I have always been interested in a healthy lifestyle and nutrition. It has become intuitive, governed primarily by a desire to nourish my family, friends and those around me, so I decided to switch my focus and train both comprehensively and holistically this area.
I followed my first Nutrition and Cooking course over ten years ago in Belgium, led by Leila Strebelle, who concentrated on food as a healer (raw food, whole grains, sprouted grains, anti-inflammatory foods) and how to build a sustainable relationship with healthy food and the way it's cooked (raw, steamed, low temperature cooking).
Pol Gregoire has been one of my main references. He has taught me about food as a healer and as a support, in avoiding or mitigating disease through delicious and healthy recipes which I would like to share.
Other courses I have completed have been led by Teresa Fernández-Gil, a graduate from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York. Teresa has been, and still is, one of my greatest inspirations and she fills me with positive energy. The main goal of these courses has been to build a sustainable relationship with food and to understand the impact food has on our bodies, together with the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
All these experiences led ultimately to the wish to qualify professionally in my passion around healthy food and its benefits.
My lovely husband and friends pushed me to study further and I completed a course in Health Counselling at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods.
One of my greatest pleasures in life is travelling with my family and I enjoy when we find an open-air market and we can see the selection of beautiful, fresh and local colourful fruit and vegetables!
