I’m a nutritional therapist from Brazil who is fed up of the diet-talking that happens at colleges, shopping centres, gyms, restaurants… well, anywhere.
I’ve lived in three different continents and I can tell, unfortunately, that’s worldwide. Life is more than that, people!
No matter where I am, I love to try new restaurants and local dishes, discover the regional literature, and promote a peaceful relationship with food and body.
It is through the Instagram @marinaferrarinutrition that I share a kind (but also evidence-based) message to help people to relax from this disturbed eating environment.
I also enjoy to cook, specially the Brazilian recipes that I grew up eating. It helps me to feel at home anywhere. To find the ingredients, I need to look for international stores around, where I usually find a lot of interesting stuff also for my dishes creations.
