Hi, my name is Talida. I’m a new mum living in beautiful Newcastle Australia.
I started my blog in 2016 after I had turned to diet to help me recover from a very severe hormone imbalance. I was so surprised at the power of food in my healing journey that I became incredibly passionate about wholesome plant-based food and started a blog to help inspire others to eat their way to health. I also used it as a way to experiment, be creative and keep myself accountable for what I ate.
In 2018 I finally gained closure over my health experience and now, fully recovered, (after 7 long years) I’m using this platform to share my experience and as much information as I can on all things “hormone health.” I left my previous career as a dental hygienist so I could study science and learn more about women’s health. I am a certified Fertility Awareness Educator (I teach women how to track and chart their cycles) and have completed postgraduate studies in Biomedical Science, majoring in Reproductive Endocrinology and Nutrition Science. I’m very passionate about ongoing scientific research into women’s hormone health including the link between hormones and mental health, the menstrual cycle, diet and fertility as well as pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I try to provide as much quality evidence-based information as I can in my articles as well as lots of recipe inspiration for hormone balancing food and healthy desserts.
