My Mission

To empower women and men – through education, knowledge and skills – to feed themselves and their families healthy, delicious food.

Ultimately, I want to have an impact on the epidemic that is our nation’s rates of overweight & obesity and associated chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease, Type 2 Diabetes and hypertension. These conditions can be prevented and markedly improved by simple nutrition and lifestyle practices which don’t cost anything to implement and can save the government millions.

My Story

My website and my business, is a reflection of me and my passions. So I guess the best place to start is by telling you a bit about myself so that you can understand why I am passionate about helping others create and maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle that is easy to maintain. If you want to read more, you can read my full story here.

My name is Penny Benjamin, I’m from Brisbane, Australia. I love learning new things, spending time with my family and friends, being active, hiking, cooking, travelling and laughing.

I struggled with an eating disorder for 5 years. Following this, my mindset with regards to health shifted significantly, I now view health as a lifelong “journey” rather than a series of ups and downs of ‘getting sick then getting better’.


Before and after, eating disorder

My interest in nutrition and health developed throughout my eating disorder recovery. I decided to stray from my career in Chemical Engineering while nurturing my love for science and chemistry by undertaking a Masters in Human Nutrition.

My services, content and products reflect the various elements that I find important in finding balance, success and happiness in life:

  • Having at least a basic understanding of nutrition principles and physiology so you can better understand your own body and the the impact of food you put in it.
  • Cooking delicious, nutritious, healthy meals with wholefood ingredients at home.
  • Fun with friends, family and loved ones,
  • Daily exercise/activity,
  • Travel and experiencing new things!
  • Motivation to achieve success in all areas of life.
  • Getting the most out of life!

My services include:

  • Corporate & group workshops and programs
  • Workplace health & wellbeing consulting
  • Brisbane City Council Active & Healthy Program provider
  • Nutrition, healthy eating and ‘cooking without recipes’ programs and workshops (in-person and online)
  • 1-1 consulting
  • Menu consulting/reviews
  • Food photography, content creation and recipe development

I also love creating content, be it recipes, travel blogs or translating the sometimes complicated nutrition information into lay terms. I do hope you’ll find something either on my website or through working with me that is able to help you along on your own health ‘journey’!

Big love xxx
