What immediately comes to mind when I say “Dietitian”?
Deprivation diets? Weight loss? Healthy food pyramid?
Sometimes I don’t want to tell people I’m a Dietitian. Not because they quickly excuse what they are eating or hide the contents of their trolley, but because they may walk away before they even know what I think, because of their preconceived ideas about what a “Dietitian” teaches.
And that’s not their fault – that’s mine…
I believe that if you are a woman who has had cancer, then I recommend that you embrace plants. These are the most powerful anti-cancer foods on the planet, full of phytonutrients that seek and destroy cancer cells.
The foods that have an abundance of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and fibre are:
  • fruit
  • vegetables
  • legumes (beans & lentils)
  • whole grains (oats, brown rice, quinoa etc)
  • healthy whole food fats (avocados, olives, nuts & seeds).
These are cancer-kicking foods, that are affordable and easy to find at your local supermarket. Yes, organic is best, but any fruit and vegetables are better than none.
Yes, by omission that means I don’t recommend dairy in any form (To find out more: https://naturallynic.com.au/why-arent-we-talking-about-dairy-and-breast-cancer/)
Yes, that means I don’t recommend much animal protein (To find out more https://naturallynic.com.au/3-top-reasons-why-women-who-have-had-cancer-need-to-rethink-red-meat/).
Maybe some wild caught salmon or organic, grass-fed meat/chicken/eggs a couple of times a month BUT you don’t need to be eating these foods to have a totally nutritious, adequately balanced diet that meets ALL your nutrient requirements – of that I am totally certain.
And it’s a given that I don’t recommend processed foods or alcohol (Yes I used to drink so I get the struggle).
I believe that this way of eating will optimise your health and support your body so you can live a long and healthy life.
How do you start eating more healing, immune boosting foods and crowd out the not-so-helpful foods?
How can you create sustainable, long term habits? It’s all about a lifestyle, NOT a diet.
But you need a plan. This is why diets DO work in the SHORT term – because you have a plan and know what you’re eating every single meal for weeks on end.


Creating a sustainable healthy lifestyle after cancer is no different…you need a plan. A plan that takes your unique lifestyle, likes and dislikes into account.
This is where I come in.
I will take your existing menu and gently tweak it, so you can start a journey of including more healing, immune boosting foods.
Having a plan takes out the guesswork of ‘what’s for dinner?’, reduces your stress levels and creates healthy long-term habits.
Let’s do ALL we can to get your health back and reduce the risk of cancer rearing its ugly head again.
