Meet Steph

Team TNN - Steph

Hi there, I’m Steph. I’m a Sports Nutritionist, triathlete and cashew butter addict from Melbourne, Victoria. And I’m here to teach you how easy real food living and performance can be.

A little more about me:

  • I have been gluten free for a decade now, and literally because it makes me happy. You can read more about my story.
  • I have an undergraduate degree in Sport and Exercise Science (James Cook University, Townsville).
  • I have a post graduate degree in Human Nutrition (Deakin University, Melbourne) and I am one subject away from completing my Masters.
  • I am a long course triathlete currently taking a break from racing to reset the body and mind.
  • I promise you it’s easier than you think. Only a few years ago all I could “cook” was a tuna salad. Seriously. So dive in, and in no time you will be sans recipe!

How did I get to where I am now? Passion and consistency. My biggest piece of advice is to dive straight in – study, blog, create, share and enjoy the journey. Do what you love, love what you do.

Hello, I’m Elyse and I’m a Holistic Nutritionist with a Bachelor of Health Science majoring in Nutrition, Food Studies and Health Promotion. I have a deep passion for whole foods and the nourishment it provides our bodies.

My mission is to help people establish a positive relationship with food and strip away the confusion, giving you the skills to enjoy simple and delicious food and embrace the most amazing version of yourself. I have a special interest in digestive health, poor immune health, fatigue, stress and weight loss and focus on discovering the root cause of dysfunction in order to achieve optimal wellbeing for a healthy mind and body.

I am a Nutritionist because I want to help people feel and reach their full health potential and enjoy the process. Healthy doesn’t have to be boring and we only live this life once, so why not make the most of it!

Meet Min

Team TNN - Min

Hi, I’m Min, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and Recipe Creator for TNN. I believe in the power of real food. Not only is it quicker and easier than you think to incorporate real food into your life, it will also improve your mental, emotional, and physical well-being.

My family and I live a real food life. I’m a wife and a mum of two active boys, and I juggle the same pressures that most of my clients do. Yet I’ve created a lifestyle in which my whole family thrives. I want to help you do the same.

You’ll quickly find that small changes can make a huge difference to your daily life and attitude. I will help you realise that your wellbeing is just as important as the rest of the family. It’s time you invested in yourself. After all, if you are thriving then the rest of the family will too.

Meet Elly

Team TNN - Elly

Hello! I’m Elly. Marathon runner, Nutritionist, wannabe yogi and yes, my favourite food is kale. I believe that food is fuel, but above all else, should be enjoyed.

My goal is to see you smash your chosen lifestyle goals. By teaching you how to prioritise real food and providing a little accountability, I’ll help you get there.

My curiosity with nutrition began when I was 17 – obsessed with watching tennis, football and ironman I pondered how, through nutrition, these incredible athletes could maximise performance. Not quite what the average 17 year old is thinking about, my passion in the making.

Since then I’ve been on a health journey of my own – I have experienced the struggle of juggling study, training and building a career, as well as the associated burnout, but I’ve also (thankfully) turned it around by focusing on real food and lifestyle. The personal experience has reminded me that through nutrition we can fuel the best version of ourselves – we all have ambitions and going about life in third gear just won’t suffice when it comes to achieving them.

I have a bachelor’s degree in Health Science, majoring in Exercise Science and Nutrition, I’m a member of the Nutrition Society of Australia and a certified Integrative Health Coach. I specialise in working with individuals to maximise their potential through eating real food.
