Practical nutrition for every day life with Verity Smith
Founder of Ibiza Superfoods and our favourite personalised juice cleanse facilitator, Verity Smith is passionate about using food as a therapy for healing the mind, body and soul. Her own journey into food-for-wellness began 12 years ago, when she embarked upon a detoxification programme. She had been suffering from low energy, digestive issues and was feeling continually stressed by the challenges and fast pace of London life. She had tried several different therapies to restore balance in her system, before beginning a month-long, gentle detoxification, eliminating certain foods and adding many more healthy fresh foods and super foods into her diet. After just one week she felt incredible benefits: her energy, sleep and digestion were better than ever!
Verity’s personal experience underpins her belief that food really is the best medicine. She began to study Naturopathic Nutrition at the College of Naturopathic Medicine and is currently completing a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition. A qualified Dietary Editor, she is passionate about sharing the health benefits of good nutrition with others.
After several years of travelling throughout Central America, Verity moved to Ibiza. Already in love with the white island and the wide variety of fresh seasonal produce here, her struggle to reconnect to the pace of the London lifestyle and a deeper need, a calling to connect to her life purpose, inspired her to make the change. She saw a gap in the market to offer high quality, fair trade and organically sourced superfoods to the many conscious-consumers in Ibiza – especially from places she had travelled to in Central America, where Macca, Acai and many other amazing superfoods grow wild. And so Ibiza Superfoods was born.
We love Verity’s accessible and light-hearted yet thorough and practical approach. Whether giving a group workshop, facilitating your private juice cleanse (we love her healthy lemonade to be taken between juices!), she offers superb levels of personal support. And if you need one to one advice, her individual consultations include carefully detailed follow ups, giving you a clear and motivational plan (often accompanied by excellent recipes). Verity empowers you to gently and easily tweak your lifestyle patterns to enjoy eating conscious health cuisine, whilst allowing yourself those mounts of sharing birthday cake of course! Her nutritional guidance is for real life… supporting you to make lifelong changes that feel so good they just have to last.
