Meet the owners of the Greenhive Kitchen: Lisa & Peter Cutforth
Lisa Cutforth was born and raised in South Africa. She left home when she was 18 to “travel the world”, and 44 countries and a whole lot of adventures later she settled in Australia.
While she still loves to travel, most of her time now is dedicated to her two other passions: People (her family, friends, community and her clients) and Food (everything about it, but particularly nutritious and delicious food).
Lisa is well qualified with a Bachelor of Science with Honours in Nutrition and Psychology, which she obtained in Edinburgh, Scotland. She has a certificate in cordon Bleu Cookery, which she obtained while in London, England. She has her Cert IV in Training and Assessing, which she obtained in Brisbane, Australia, and is a qual;ified Food Safety Supervisor.
And not finished learning yet, she is studying an Advanced Diploma in the Neuroscience of Leadership as well as her continuing professional education in her areas of specialty interests including food intolerances, stress, depression and Anxiety, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, and neuro-supportive nutritional supplementation.
Lisa has worked as a nutritionist for the last 12 years.
Nutrition is needed by every body. Her passion and knowledge has moved her to work diversely across disadvantaged community groups in South Africa to working with well known celebrities in Australia.
She is currently working a couple of days a week as one of the five key specialists consulting for The Banyans, a top private, luxury wellness and rehabilitation residence in Brisbane as the clinical nutritionist, tailoring nutrition solutions to meet client needs.
Lisa also runs several health businesses that help provide solutions for her client’s problems:
She developed and runs an online holistic weight loss clinic: Size Fantastic which combines, nutrition, psychology and neuroscience to help people create their best body and enjoy living in it, in the healthiest way.
She authored a book: Size Fantastic: How the mind and behaviour influence weight.
She owns and runs a group of healthy meal delivery brands which meet different target groups needs including: Healthy Meals To Your Door which has 8 different plans and specialises in special dietary needs; Fit Foods Club which has 3 different plans and is designed for those who are looking for nutritional support to complement their fitness lifestyle (whether they are just starting out or into peak performance); and Wholesomeness for the more distinguished crowd (busy professionals that want convenient restaurant quality healthy food delivered to their home or office). Her brands also provide low FODMAPS and vegan home delivered meals. Wholesomeness also delivers healthy food and vegan catering in Brisbane
Lisa has lectured for Torren’s university on the subjects: Food as Medicine and Lifespan Nutrition.
She also shares her passion for community health by volunteering her time for Nexus Care on the Service Delivery Committee.
Given her knowledge and experience in eating behaviour, Lisa is probably best known for helping people better understand their relationship with food. She helps them get to the bottom of why they eat what they eat and supports them to create healthier habits in simple and practical ways. With her studies in neuroscience and psychology, she is also well known for being a healthy problem solver, because she has a knack for taking health off the “too hard” shelf, and making it easier for people to change their habits to be healthier.
What she knows about the mind, eating behaviour, food and people will inspire, intrigue and equip you for greater success. While Lisa uses some pretty remarkable behaviour change techniques to help her clients experience greater health and weight loss, the principles she teaches are transferable across all spectrums of success. Lisa’s talks and presentations have been popular with business groups, as part of corporate wellness packages and with not for profit organisations.
