When we think about the word “health,” it’s easy to get caught up in the idea that eating well means sacrificing taste and flavor. But that couldn’t be further from the truth.
In the kitchen of Hotel Komune, located on the lush and unspoilt east coast of Bali, the goal is to create simple, delicious recipes that are also healthy and sustainable. Over a period of two years, their beloved “Big Chef” has hand-crafted a selection of recipes that draws inspiration from aromatic and flavorful Asian dishes, and makes sure to pack a major micronutrient and macronutrient punch that help you feel your best.
We believe that food should make you feel good inside and out, so we invite you to try these recipes at home—and we hope they make you feel like a plant-based powerhouse!
Host of The Proof podcast, nutritionist, sports physiotherapist, creator of theproof.com blog and author of The Proof is in the Plants. The Proof is in the Plants is my first book, and it walks through the science of eating for a healthier you and a healthier planet. It contains the agenda-free information that we all need to become more conscious of how our daily food choices affect our body and the world around us.
My philosophy is simple. We live in an environment that makes it incredibly hard to follow an evidence-based dietary pattern, an environment that in many ways sets us up for failure. Rather than waiting for this environment to change, or waiting to experience pain, I want to arm you with evidence-based solutions. This will help you better navigate the world in which we live and improve your chance of living a long, healthy life, allowing you to do more of whatever it is you love to do.
It took me a master’s in Nutrition and years of research to understand the science and how our food choices are shaped. However, I believe that this information should be easily accessible to everyone.
This isn’t about dietary labels or agendas. It’s a space to honour science, to honour learning as a community and to encourage progress over perfection. If you want to upgrade your health and tread more lightly on the planet, I am here to help you do that.
