Ep. 27 - Nurturing Health with Plant-Based Nutrition with Mirella Carlucci



Episode 27

In recent years, the vegan diet has emerged as a prominent and influential trend, transcending dietary choices to become a lifestyle embraced by a growing number of individuals worldwide. However, it’s important to know the difference between a true plant-based diet, and one that’s filled with mostly processed vegan alternatives.

In this episode, Nicole invites Mirella Carlucci, a holistic plant-based nutrition coach onto the show. Mirella dives deep into how plant-based nutrition helped her combat the struggles of perimenopause and how dietary shifts significantly improved her overall health. Mirella also emphasises the importance of incorporating diverse plant foods into our diet for better hormone health and how processed foods can have adverse effects.
