Martina's Story

What Inspired Martina to Become a Dietitian & Plant Based

Motivation to Become a Dietitian:

Becoming a dietitian was a natural progression for me, driven by my dual passions for nutrition and supporting others in leading healthier lives. From a young age, I’ve always had a fondness for cooking, and when I transitioned to a vegan lifestyle, I had to hone my skills in crafting healthy, balanced meals due to limited options in my small town. Experiencing firsthand the transformative effects of food on health, I felt compelled to pursue a career that would allow me to merge my love for nutrition with my aspiration to enact positive change. As a dietitian, my goal is to equip individuals with the knowledge they need to make informed dietary decisions, guiding them toward optimal health and well-being through the principles of plant-based nutrition.

Motivation to Become Plant Based:

As both an animal advocate and a Registered Dietitian, my journey toward veganism has been deeply influenced by compassion. Recognizing the ethical considerations and acknowledging the ability to thrive without animal products, I’ve made a conscious and compassionate choice to prioritize plant-based foods. In addition to ethical concerns, sustainability plays a significant role in shaping my dietary choices. By embracing a plant-centered diet, I not only reduce my environmental footprint but also enjoy a plethora of health advantages, including a decreased risk of chronic illnesses.
