the nutritionist foodie

Eve Kalinik

Averse to quick fixes and faddiness, (don’t even get her started on “clean” eating), nutritional therapist Eve Kalinik is ahead of the curve when it comes to nutrition and passionately believes in creating delicious food that also just happens to be healthy. Focusing on keeping the gut balanced, the diets she creates for her clients (and in her book, Be Good To Your Gut) are a godsend for anyone in search of vitality and a consistent feeling of wellness.

Inspired by food’s ability to change the way we think, feel and look from the outside, for Ikigai, she will empower us with the knowledge to make healthy, hearty, happy choices, and better enjoy eating.

What gets you up in the morning?
I’m definitely an early bird. I love the sense that there is a brand new day ahead and find that entirely motivating in itself. I also love breakfast – hands down my favourite meal of the day! Served with a steaming hot cup of coffee alongside.
If you had to describe what you do in a sentence…
Using food, natural supplements and lifestyle changes to help bring the body (and mind) into a state of balance and strength.

“I’m definitely an early bird. I love the sense that there is a brand new day ahead and find that entirely motivating in itself.”

What makes you an expert in your field?
I don’t really feel comfortable with the word ‘expert’ but I would definitely say that I feel very passionate about my field and have a genuine love and appreciation of food – when it comes to food, health and taste don’t have to be mutually exclusive! Moreover, you don’t need to be a trained chef to make delicious hearty food. Having previously worked in the weird and wonderful (yet totally exhausting) corporate world of Fashion PR (I once worked with global PR firm, Karla Otto) means that I can relate to the difficulties and challenges of a busy modern life. That same former career gave me the skills to write creatively, and publishing my book, Be Good to Your Gut was one of several wonderful opportunities.
When and how did you receive your calling?
My own personal experience with health related issues got me wanting to explore alternative options.
I felt so empowered that I wanted to learn more…and here we are now!

“I feel very passionate about my field and have a genuine love and appreciation of food – health and taste when it comes to food doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive!”

What is the most misunderstood thing about your profession?
People often turn to a nutritional therapist for weight loss when there is so much more that nutrition can do to help support overall health. And when you get into the realms of gut health, which has become my specialised area, then you get to see how much the gut influences the way we function – and that goes way beyond digestion.
If there was one thing you could pass on to everyone, what would it be?
This is a tad clichéd but it is true: “Everything in Moderation” …and that includes moderation by the way.
What one thing should we stop doing now?
Overthinking what we eat. Food is food. It isn’t ‘bad’ or ‘good’ and to label it as such is not helpful or accurate.
What one thing should we do more of now?
Resting and digesting. Chewing well as opposed to furiously gobbling down food and then wondering why we feel so uncomfortable soon afterwards, can be a revelation of sorts. And that’s before we even get into what we are eating.
What is your “ikigai”?
I would have to say it is knowing that I’m essentially helping to motivate and support people to ‘feel better’ in whatever way that comes about. That’s truly a wonderful feeling.
