Welcome to My Healthy Seoul, an online space I have created to share my knowledge of holistic living in South Korea. My focus will be how to live a plant-based lifestyle, both in the home and around the city of Seoul. With my passion for nutrition, I hope to inspire others to use food as a way to heal and nourish the body.
Here’s a little information about my educational background.
In 2008 I graduated from the University of Guelph in Canada with an honours degree in Biological Science and Food Science. After working in the food processing industry for two years, I had a strong feeling that this was not the right path for me. Growing up, my diet consisted mostly of healthy, whole foods that were prepared into delicious meals by my family. So, I knew that working for an organization that did not support my core beliefs was not the best choice for me.
In 2011, I moved to Seoul to travel and experience a new culture while teaching English. My one year abroad extended to three years. During my time in Seoul, I completed a yoga teacher training course at Magic Pond Yoga School. Yoga allowed me to connect to a deeper part of myself by becoming more aware of my physical body and the energy within me.
Feeling that I wanted to make Seoul my home, I decided to move back to Canada to further my education in holistic nutrition. I attended the Institute of Holistic Nutrition in Toronto for an intense year of study. While at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition, I also studied Clinical Iridology.
Now that I have returned to Seoul, I’m looking forward to connecting with the community. Sharing nutritional information I have learned, recipes I have created and lifestyle tips for living a balanced lifestyle are my goals for this space.
I hope you enjoy.
