About Lisa


My Story

Hello there, I’m Lisa,

Firstly, let me just say how thrilled I am that you’re on this page, because if you’re reading this, it means you’re just as passionate about Food for Healing as I am. For over two decades, I’ve been committed to showcasing the incredible power of seasonal whole foods to radically transform one’s health. And I want to let you in on a little secret: embracing a nourishing diet starts with shopping well.

My journey in the healthcare field began as a registered nurse, a role I proudly reprised during the recent pandemic to serve our community. Alongside, I have honed my skills as a Naturopath and Nutritionist for over 20 years, infusing holistic wellness in every aspect of my practice. My academic pursuits haven’t stopped there; I’ve been published in international scientific journals, travelled to Korea, India, Indonesia and Sri Lanka to study Traditional healing practices, and recently did a brief dive into the world of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at RMIT University.

But hey, enough about me. What’s really exciting is how I can help you find your own path to wellness. And speaking of paths, let me guide you through some curated offerings designed just for you.

Artisanal Spices and Mueslis

Understanding the therapeutic properties of spices led me to create my very own line of artisanal spices and mueslis. Perfect for those starting their journey in Indian and Sri Lankan cooking, or even seasoned chefs looking to elevate their dishes. These aren’t just seasonings; they’re healing agents, each formulated with the utmost care and the highest quality ingredients.

Cooking Classes to Savour

I’ve developed a full range of cooking classes that aren’t just about recipes but about lifestyle transformation. From Keralan to Goan, from Lebanese to Indonesian cuisine, there’s a culinary world waiting for you to explore. Each class is a hands-on experience, filled with nutritional insights that tie back to the core philosophy of healing through food.

So, are you ready to embark on a gastronomic journey with me? Let’s uncover how you can reclaim your health, one scrumptious meal at a time. The kitchen is my playground, and I’m excited to make it yours too. Let’s cook, eat, and heal together!

Here’s to your best health and delicious dining,
