One of this things I love about my work is speaking to the masses – mainly via the media. There is so much confusion about food and nutrition, and so I like to try and get “out there” and have my voice heard as much as possible. As a Registered Nutritionist I only talk about evidenced-based nutrition – basically nutrition messages that have scientific research behind them – not simply my opinion or something I read in a paper.
Harper’s Bazaar Nutrition Writer
That’s one of the reasons why I love (and am very proud of) the articles I have written for Harper’s Bazaar Magazine. Harper’s Bazaar is known as one of the most ‘sophisticated women’s fashion magazines’ in the UK. The Hearst UK website says that the Harper’s Bazaar reader is: “…a discerning, style-conscious, intelligent 30+ woman who is cultured, well-travelled and independent. She knows her own mind, yet also appreciates Bazaar’s curated edit, helpful advice, and knowledgeable point of view.” So it’s great to have some kind of influence over the nutrition advice that this group of people have access too.
My Harper’s articles
I’ve written for Harper’s on a variety of topics and provided them with quotes on a number of their own articles. These include:
Drinking Smart – an article about what we should and shouldn’t be ordering at the bar
Ditch the Detox – An honest article highlighting how we’ve been slightly duped by the ‘detox’ myth and explaining how our body will quite happily do the detoxing for us.
