How do we live with optimal wellbeing and health? What foods are great for us? Which diet should we be following to feel amazing?
Welcome to All Nourishing where my wish is to guide you on food in nutrition and lifestyle bites.
I’m Clarice Hebblethwaite and let me tell you a bit about me first so you get a better idea of how I can help coach you on diet and lifestyle for living life.
I’ve always loved preparing food and sharing with friends and family. So it was pretty natural for me to begin my working career as a chef. I loved working in wholefood, vegetarian and French restaurants. And I also I spent a memorable summer running a taverna kitchen on the Greek island of Paxos!
A desire to help people
Bubbling away in me through these years was a desire to help people heal through their diet. So I completed a degree in nutrition and dietetics and then began my work as Consultant Nutritionist and Dietitian.
I love making sense of the science of food and turning it into real ideas and practical advice. Over the past 25 years in this work, I have become well known for my knowledge and practice in digestive health, food intolerances, women’s health and weight and health. In 2007 I started up a busy private practice in Christchurch, New Zealand, called Dietary Specialists which continues with 4 dietitians and in the same year started the dietary consults for those during their journey before and after weight loss surgery in Christchurch, working in both clinics until 2021. In the recent years I also worked with the Pain Rehabilitation Christchurch team guiding on nutritional approaches for chronic pain and often chronic fatigue.
My life got very busy running the business, meeting clients, being wife, mum, sister and friend. And just like so many people I see now, I was often working late into the evening. But even then my ‘to do list’ never got any shorter.
I was lucky to get a wake up call in my own health late 2009 and started to truly explore how to live a more holistic and balanced lifestyle. This led me to studying and practice Intuitive eating, self nurture, meditation and visualization as part of healing body, mind and emotions.
In 2011, 2013 and 2014 I spent incredible times working at Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat in Queensland Australia. Truly my wish is for everyone to experience such a place; eating nourishing food, sleeping deeply, practicing and learning amazing activities for ultimate energy, vitality and health.
In 2014 I completed my coaching certificate in Integrative nutrition covering the use of functional diagnostic tests with https://www.trulyheal.com/ . Then in 2020 /2021 I completed a very hands on herbal apprenticeship with https://phytofarm.co.nz/. I write about this with some photos through the seasons here https://www.allnourishing.com/phytofarm-herb-apprenticeship/
Now in 2021 I have evolved my business to working independently, reaching people all around New Zealand and beyond, via telehealth, zoom, phone consults and providing a tailored and personalised approach.
I love to support people to become empowered with their relationship with food, eating with pleasure, supporting their mental vitality, full energy, great mood, easeful digestion and strong immune health. I love to help people reach greater health.
Slow the pace
I see so many people living life at such a fast pace and often feeling there is no time for them to cook or sometimes even to eat anymore. Maybe I can’t take you to a lifestyle retreat but I can share the ways with you in ‘easy bite size amounts’ along with photos and videos to make it real.
