Hi, I'm Tarnya,
Nurse, Mum, Nutritionist &
Founder of Gourmet You
As a mum, qualified nurse, nutritionist and passionate cook, I found it increasingly difficult to cook and cater for the health requirements and food intolerances of my children and 2 sisters. Above all, as I did not have an intolerance myself, I grew sick of cooking the same bland meat and salad or vegetables for dinner so I began experimenting and creating my own seasonings, recipes and baked treats.
I fell in LOVE with food and health, and how they interact with each other. I am so excited to be able to work with clients on achieving their health and nutrition goals through 1:1 coaching, cooking workshops and group sessions.
Happy cooking, and I hope to see you soon!
For weight management
Maintaining our percieved ideal weight can be challenging with everyday life always changing. We believe that weight management, whether it be weight loss or weight gain, can be achieved by following a great quote ''Eat food, not too much, mostly plants'"- Michael Pollan
Moderation, mindset and management are key here, and we will be there alongside you with each step.
Parents of young children with food intolerances
Adjusting a family diet to cater for young children with food intolerances can result in very boring meals. Gourmet You founder, Tarnya Bruinier, knows this first-hand and
designed her recipes and nutrition program services to put flavour back on the menu and bring back the joy of cooking.
For disease management
More and more people are responding to food intolerances and gut health problems by turning to plant-rich diets.
We base our program around increasing the quality and quantity of plant foods alongside your everyday diet to improve health and wellbeing.
"Tarnya is great to work with. She is very professional, but also easy going and interested in getting to know your specific needs. I'd recommend her services to everyone. "
“Gourmet You is a testament to Tarnya’s passion and drive for providing simple, adaptable and TASTY food for people with allergies and intolerances. She uses an evidence-based approach to developing her program, researching food-gut reactions and expanding her knowledge on gut health as science learns more. ”
