Sports performance dietitian
In the 6+ years that I’ve been working as a sports performance dietitian, it never ceases to amaze me how challenging nutrition can be. Not only through the hypes and fads, but also in the routines.
I realized how much positive change was made when my clients, often elite and Olympic athletes, make more sustainable food choices throughout the year. Not only for their own health and performance, but also for their environment and our planet. As if they were challenged for a bigger cause. For example: eating from a more plant-based perspective equals to a lower carbon footprint, a higher fiber intake and more variation throughout the year, while using less plastic means more whole food products and less crap.
People have always called me a treehugger. Probably because I became a vegetarian at age 13 and was a little Greenpeace activist. Therefore it is my mission to contribute to the food transition, and combine ecology, health & performance in the future of sports nutrition as an integrated approach.
