About Lisa

Lisa White Oct 2014

Lisa is the Creator and Producer of the web-based cooking show Alternative Chef Kitchen she’s also an author. She’s been a guest presenter at The Adelaide Gluten-Free Expo, a guest blogger at Health For Life Kitchen and her food-sensitivity friendly recipes have been featured in national and international magazines. She’s a mother of two and lives in Adelaide, South Australia.

Lisa completed a Bachelor of Science degree in 1997 with the intention of going on to study nutrition, however due to course restructuring and availability (and possibly fate), she ended up in medical research for 8 years during which she earned an Honours degree (in the area of reproductive biology) and was also enrolled in a PhD. It wasn’t until a friend suggested she see a naturopath for her own health problems that she discovered naturopathy and a philosophy for health and nutrition that resonated with her own personal philosophy far more than the medical model she’d been working in. After much consideration she elected to discontinue the PhD and follow her heart, leaving medical research to study her first love, nutrition (and her new passions: herbal medicine and naturopathy). In 2012, Lisa completed further study in Plant-Based nutrition and is a Trained Teacher in Natural Fertility Education.

Lisa approaches naturopathy in a broad-minded and down to earth way. Her personal experiences (as a parent and with a child with food allergies, as an adult with food sensitivities and with endometriosis) have helped her become a more practical clinician, with an appreciation of  the needs of people with young families, people who are working and studying, or with demanding careers.
