Hello, I’m Emily aka. Generosity of Spirit
I am currently studying to be a qualified Plant-Based Nutritional Advisor and Mindful Nutrition Coach with a Diploma in Gut-Brain Connection.
I believe in the power, future and benefit of plant-based living and the future of mindful nutrition going hand in hand with prioritising gut health.
Why Generosity of Spirit Plant-Based Nutrition?
Generosity of Spirit is the openness and willingness to share our ‘gifts’ , our ‘spirit’ (both emotional and material) freely with others .
I have been vegan for nearly four years and it has transformed my life and my relationship with food. I spent my twenties living at odds with food and nutrition, with a terrible body image and an unhealthy relationship with eating. Even though I spent most of my days obsessing over food, I wasn’t able to fuel my body and it was in total deteriment to my physical and mental health.
It took time, but I started to embrace a vegetarian diet and slowly with the help of my Husband – I started to learn to love food. We would go out to dinner, cook together, and enjoy meals – everything I used to try and avoid. Over time, I found food and nourishment had so much goodness, it actually fed my mind, body and soul.
After a few years, my vegetarianism grew into veganism and I became more and more confident in the kitchen. The kitchen became my ‘happy place’… I could be myself, lose myself, relax and create.
I started to enjoy experimenting with plant-based food – and found great joy and pride in creating recipes.
Soon, I was obsessing over food but in all the best ways.
Like most of the world, the pandemic saw our lives move indoors, into our homes. I found even more comfort in food, cooking and creating plant-based meals, and I wanted more. I started to post daily on my Instagram @generosityofspirit and I completed a Vegan Cooking Diploma and then began my Vegan Nutritionist Diploma.
The more I learnt, the more I wanted to learn.
At the same time, I was reaching a much better state of mental health, finally finding healthy ways to manage my anxiety with mindfulness and self care. I knew a healthy plant-based diet, together with good gut health and a mindful way of living was the key to achieving full nourishment of my body and mind.
Launching Generosity of Spirit Plant-Based Nutrition has allowed me to share this knowledge and discovery with others, and I am so excited to see what the future holds.
