425348_10151230786310291_1608695250_n For those of you who don’t know me personally, I am Nickie. I enjoy creating recipes, drinking tea, growing veggies and herbs, creating garments out of fabrics sourced from different countries, cooking, traveling and getting about with nature.

I don’t eat a lot of meat very often and when I do I am mindful of where it comes from. Maybe that could be dubbed as a selective vegetarian, if such thing exists. One could say I really follow Michael Pollan’s main food rule “Eat food, mostly plants, not too much”. I enjoy yoga, pilates and running. However, I find being outside on a mountain or in the ocean much more fulfilling.

I like travelling (isn’t that cliche?!) and I find it refreshing to take a step back to a more simple life. I enjoy learning about other cultures, how food plays a role in their life and the significance of sharing meals together with family. I enjoy the simplicity of local farming and eating off the land, as well as learning the tricks of the trade for cooking authentic food. 1511747_10152761097217814_1499105245_n

The Good Wolf Manifesto is my blog, and it is mostly filled with stories about life, food and travel to feed the body and mind. If you have come here to browse, I hope you enjoy it. If you have come here with a specific question, feel free to sent me a message through the contact page. I hope you find something that tickles your fancy. Maybe sit down with a cuppa and have a read or pass it on to someone else who might enjoy it. Whatever you please, I hope it adds some sparkle to your day. Thanks for stopping by.

Always remember, that Ruth Riedal spoke some wise words;

”Life is so endlessly delicious”

Credentials I hold a Master of Dietetics from Deakin University. As I am currently based in London, I am an HCPC Registered Dietitian. In addition, I hold both a Bachelor and Masters Degree in Human Nutrition from the University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand. So following these many years of study and over 4 years of work in the clinical and community setting as a Dietitian, one could say I might know a thing or two about food.
