A. Gulden

As you may have noticed, I enjoy food immensely. I believe strongly that just because you choose not to eat meat does not mean that you cannot be a "foodie" and have a much wider and varied repertoire than just pasta or salad.

My journey started many years ago in Turkey (my home country) while I was running with my own restaurant. After a downward health spiral based on a meat-centric diet aligned with food we were serving, I started my journey into vegetarianism. Within a very short space of time I found my health vastly improved and learning just how dangerous our consumption of meat can be.

While I was still studying nutrition in Australia, my food and nutrition related articles have been published back in Turkey in an agricultural magazine called Agroskop.

This year, I finished my nutrition related studies. I am now certified in many areas such as Clinical Nutrition, Advanced Ayurveda, Vegetarian and Vegan Nutrition, Food and Environmental Allergies and am also a Master Therapist of Natural Therapies.

At the moment, I live in Sydney with my husband and an Australian silky terrier.

    30th January 2019

    There is a lot I love about Yotam Ottolenghi. I’m telling you, it’s not just his appreciation for vegetables. He’s an incredibly non-assuming and humble person, too. Just pure coolness. We were at Sydney Opera House last night for an Ottolenghi talk. An Evening with…
