Getting to know Nutritionist Kaitlin

Q1. Can you tell us where your journey began as a practitioner?

I have always been interested in nutrition (at school I loved chemistry and food tech!) but it took a while (a decade!) to finally study my passion. Whilst living in London for a couple of years, I was exposed to the huge shift in healthy eating that brought about loads of foodie events, cooking classes and juice bar openings. My job was involved in launching lululemon in the UK so I was able to work with many health bloggers and create cooking events, ultimately surrounding myself constantly in the wellness world! It was inevitable that when I came back to Melbourne that I would study a Bachelor of Nutritional Medicine at SSNT.

Q2. What is your favourite thing about working at Luxton Clinic? 

So many things! The tranquil, inviting vibe of the clinic, the lovely lovely women I get to work alongside and meeting all the amazing people who walk through our doors.

Q3. What does your everyday menu look like?

  • Breakfast – a big bowl of muesli or porridge with berries or a banana cacao smoothie with avocado and vegemite toast
  • Lunch – quinoa salad with roast veg and halloumi
  • Dinner – lentil polpetti spaghetti, mushroom risotto or a sweet potato curry with brown rice
  • Snacks – I’m always baking; banana bread, apple muffins or brownies

Q4. What is your favourite way to move your body?

Yoga! At my fave studio, Happy Melon. I love how it gets you out of your head and connects you to the feeling.

Q5. Tell us three secret facts about you!

  • I completed my yoga teacher training in Bali 3 years ago. 
  • I am obsessed with the Titanic, both the movie and the actual disaster.
  • I love England so much that I had to bring myself back a charming English lad, my husband Charlie, and genuinely feel like his country hometown is my second home!

Q6. If you could sum up your wellness philosophy in one sentence, it would be:

“Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.”

Michael Pollan’s quote really resonates with me. A real, whole-food approach to eating, without complex rules and a focus on plants, is a simple and sustainable food philosophy I like to adopt both personally, and in clinic.
