Welcome to Shelley’s Good Eats.
The judgement free, diet free (and incredibly delicious) zone. Our aim is to help you build a healthy relationship with food that has been so lost in the world of technology, and instragram foodies.
First off I would like to introduce myself…
Hi, I’m Shelley, and I’m addicted to baking.
As soon as I could stand at the bench, I was in the kitchen cooking along side my mother and my older sister. I grew up in a relatively healthy, fit family, but that never stopped my mum from putting a delicious homemade sweet in my lunch box everyday for school. This taught me, the very important lesson I live my life by today - EVERYTHING IN MODERATION.
When I first started uni, I began in a bachelor of science majoring in Biomedical science, with the full intent of going on into medicine. However, half was through my degree I became really unmotivated and lost the will to study. After a lot of thought, and talking it over with everyone I knew I took the leap and changed my major to Nutrition and Food science. From that my passion for nutrition grew into what it is today. I found what I loved and was truly passionate about and all of a sudden the workload didn’t matter.
I started Shelley’s Good Eats on instagram shortly after I changed my major as I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to share my baking adventures and nutritional facts that I learnt day to day, never expecting it to grow into what it is now.
Now graduated as a Nutritionist, I am excited to grow Shelley’s Good Eats even further and use it to help the wider community. Doing this through Nutritious catering, workshops and sharing with you my healthy tips and recipes here!
You may think it’s strange to see I (as a nutritionists) also make cakes to order. Well that is the baking side of me that I simply can’t give up. I think it is important to never restrict yourself. You are allowed to indulge yourself every once and in a while, especially for a celebration! Its what I was taught growing up, and now along with all of you, I want to share that message even further!
