Hi, I'm Gina, the founder of Foodie for Health.
Welcome to my world of delicious snacks!
I'm on a mission to bring healthy, incredibly tasting and convenient snacks into our busy lives! Snacks with no refined sugar that are free from dairy & gluten to keep you going throughout the day while nourishing your body in the right way!
So many of my clients ask me where the idea came from for Foodie for Health, so I want to share my journey with you. My main career path was in the corporate recruitment world. It was in this environment I, like many others, fell into the trap of long hours trapped at my desk, no time for lunch. Snacking on unhealthy convenient snacks full of excessive sugar to keep going accompanied with consistent energy highs and crashes throughout the day. I knew something had to change!
While restoring my inner balance and energy levels through exercise, I crossed paths with Michelle Brannan the female trainer for the International Federation of BodyBuilding & Fitness (IFBB). I was in awe of her drive and passion, so I decided to start the IFBB journey and become a competitor.
During my IFBB training, I was educated with the importance of the constant need to nurture your body not just at mealtimes but with healthy, high energy snacks. This was when the Foodie for Health journey started. Many nights I would spend in my kitchen creating tasty high energy snacks with no refined sugar to take to work and training with me. These snacks also had to be gluten and dairy-free as my colleagues and co-trainers would always want to share.
The reviews were excellent from fellow trainers, family and friends. Every day at my corporate job, colleagues used to ask for my snacks to keep them going. I just knew then what I needed to do!
And here I am.
