Hi!! How are you all? I thought I would write a post letting you know a little bit more about me and my thoughts and my life as a nutritionist. Yes, my name is Ayshabibi, I am a nutritionist and I love it! I just stumbled upon this course when looking through UCAS a few months before starting university; I was looking through the course list deciding which one to do and I saw human nutrition, I was intrigued and didn't even know such a course existed and once I read the course description I knew I wanted to do it. And I have never regretted it one bit... (except when having to do stats at university).
Once I started to learn about food and how it can have such a big influence on our health my passion and love for it grew and grew. I love it when other people get interested in it too. And with the whole obesity epidemic it is always a topic of conversation in every group and there's always an article in the news. It's totally surrounding us, which makes me even happier that I am a nutritionist and that I have the knowledge and background to actually do something about it.
As for me, I was quite unhealthy and I still do have some bad habits which I am uncomfortable with and always trying to overcome. Biscuits are my vices; it's that whole tea time social thing that makes me reach for that buttery high calorie snack which I like to dip into my tea or coffee. That is where I fall. But I learn to control it by putting one or two (or three sometimes) in a small plate beside my cuppa, making me see that that is my allowance and I can have no more than that. When I have herbal tea I don't need to have any biscuits and I did go through a time where I had a detoxing herbal tea at tea times to prevent me from eating those extra unnecessary calories. I still do sometimes, like in the morning I have green tea and sometimes when I'm feeling a pang of hunger in the evenings I have a nice fennel or chamomile tea. Chocolate used to be a vice too but now I only have dark chocolate and only a couple of small pieces a day is enough for me.
Even though I did a degree in nutrition and I am a nutritionist I am always learning about food and health every single day. I like to think of my myself as a normal girl nutritionist, who loves food and always finding ways of making every day food healthy and being happy at the same time too. Yes, I should be a good healthy role model and I hope that I am but I want to be a realistic role model. For me it's all about balance and moderation. (Click here to find out what I mean and how I do it).
Oh yeah I love coffee too, I am going a bit coffee crazy at the moment and going on a bit of a coffee crawl. Let me know if you would like to hear about my trips to new cafés that I am always exploring (and regular cafés too). There's always a new place popping up in the smallest of places, some are average and some have some really nice food and drinks available.
Hope you liked this blogpost, a little bit of an insight into me and my life. I love hearing from you guys, so don't forget to comment below or send me a message via contact me!
