Soulpod is excited to introduce Soulpod Nutrition, (formally Empirical Nutrition) to its family.
Soulpod has always prided itself on preparing and offering soul nourishing food made with love, however, can now assure its nutritional integrity.
Please Meet Clinical Nutritionist: Jodie Martin.
Beginning her journey in the healthcare industry in 1990, Jodie soon discovered her love of natural medicine and the healing power of food. After becoming a nutritionist, Jodie turned her attention to plant-based, holistic diets which have seen her help an enormous number of clients.
As the founder of Empirical Nutrition (now Soulpod Nutrition), Jodie now aims to guide as many people as possible down the road to true health through nutritious, plant-based eating via the Soulpod Cafes.
Jo’s experience enables her to treat people suffering from food allergies and intolerance's including coeliac disease, lactose intolerance and fructose malabsorption. A plethora of other conditions which include the likes of heart disease, high cholesterol (etc) can also be assisted through sound diet and lifestyle advice. Otherwise she is able to offer nutritional advice for those simply wishing to embrace a healthier outlook on food.
After numerous years of working alongside naturopaths, Jodie utilises a holistic and integrative approach, basing her diet plans around plant-based food which promotes optimum health and nutrition.
With so much misinformation out there, there is a lot of confusion about what is ‘healthy’ and ‘good for us’. Jo aims to cut through this noise and focus on simple, practical advice that embraces wholesome, nutritious food to fuel and nourish your body, soul and mind.
Keep an eye out for Soulpod’seBook’s, Nutrition and Wellbeing workshops, regular blogs and nutritious dishes at the Soulpod Cafes.
Begin Your Journey to a Plant-Based Diet
The benefits of a plant-based diet are enormous, with copious amounts of medical research suggesting that veganism can increase your lifespan and dramatically decrease the risk of contracting illnesses, such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes.
Within this hour-long consultation, you will answer a range of questions which will help us understand your health requirements, lifestyle, goals and nutritional habits. From here, we will create a customised 2-week plant-based diet plan, free from meat, dairy and other animal products. You will also receive recipe cards and a list of pantry staples to assist you in making the most informed choices when shopping.
Confused or Recently Diagnosed with Food Allergies and Intolerances? We Can Help
During this hour-long consultation, you will work alongside our nutritionist, discussing your health history, allergies and intolerances in detail, allowing us to better understand your specific needs and requirements. Whether you suffer from coeliac disease, are lactose intolerant or must follow a low FODMAP diet, we shape our services to put you on the path to good health.
We will then establish a plant-based 2-week diet plan catering specifically to your allergies, which will offer the very best dietary guide for you. You will also receive recipe cards and a list of pantry staples that are appropriate for your needs.
