Hey! Thanks for stopping by.
My names Giulia and I’m the face and creator behind TakeOneHolistic.
I’m a university qualified Nutritionist, with a special focus on plant-based nutrition. I hold a fascination in gut health which coincidentally enough, a plant-based diet feeds into it quite well (excuse the pun).
In my spare time I love to get outside, in winter I will grab my snowboard + any opportunity to head to the mountains for a good time.
I also love cooking up tasty, nutritious meals and trying out new things in the kitchen. However, I’ve decided I’m definitely not a baker - that is a whole other skill on its own so I’ll leave that one to the experts.
Most importantly, I love helping and educating people within the realm of food and nutrition.

Plant Based Nutrition
There is strong evidence-based research showing the positive effects plant-based diets have not only on your physical health, but your mental health too.
I have a particular special interest in whole food, plant-based nutrition -
Plant-based diets offer a host of health benefits including an array of protective factors against many chronic diseases, individuals who also follow this way of eating tend to also have a lower body weight & BMI acting as another protective factor.
Unfortunately, we are in a critical time where the environment around us is set to worsen and worsen through climate change. Fortunately, the food choices we do make can have a huge influence on this!
Choosing a plant-based diet creates less burden on our environment and gives us the best chance of lessening the drastic impacts that are set to occur.
