Welcome to ‘Nourish Kitchen by V’
I’m so happy you’re here. Perhaps you’re fed up with faddy diets, or maybe you’ve decided you want to get serious about looking after yourself and living healthily. Or perhaps you simply want to learn more about how you can eat and exercise healthily without it being about weight loss, cutting out food groups or spending hours cooking every night.
If any of that applies to you, you’re in the right place. I work with people to help them change their mind-set around healthy living and show them how it can be all about eating, exercising and living in a way that makes you feel GREAT about yourself. No more faddy diets, punishing exercise regimes or January health kicks. My mantra is Nourishment, NOT Punishment.
Nourishment, not punishment
My name is Veronika, but everyone calls me “V” and I’m originally from Czech Republic but have been living in the UK for the last 13 years.
For the majority of my life I’ve had a difficult relationship with food and my body. I used to follow the most ridiculous diets and developed an eating disorder when I was younger too, so I honestly get how difficult it can be to find the right relationship with the food and finally enjoy it.
I used to be my own worst critic, punishing myself about the way I looked and I tried a wide range of faddy diets. My body confidence was all over the place, I used to struggle with bad acne, weight issues and low self-esteem.
My breaking point
The breaking point for me was when my cervical screening results started coming back abnormal, even after going through several biopsies and treatments. But when I decided something needed to change, I was feeling completely lost when it came to food, exercise, and nutrition. So, I started educating myself and acknowledging how powerful and incredible food and exercise is when it comes to our overall well-being, and how it can support us when it comes to illnesses, skin problems, depression, anxiety and so on.
Nutritious food and movement showed me I could live my life in a much happier way, without food and exercise having to be about weight loss and punishing myself.
I’ve learned, and strongly believe that everything is about balance and moderation and that we certainly are ‘WHAT WE DIGEST’ – that’s why I want to share all my knowledge with you to educate and inspire you to be more confident about your body, improve your health and show you how easy it can be to cook delicious, fresh, nourishing food.
So here I am, a Self Love Coach who’s ridiculously passionate about healthy living and sharing what I’ve learned from my own journey, research and experiences with you. I’m here to support you in working on your own self-love, self-acceptance, nutrition and well being.
