About Steph

Steph has a Masters of Science in Human Health and Nutritional Sciences and wants to share her knowledge with you and bring nutrition to life.

She created The Real Peel to inspire healthy choices and to show others that a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to be boring or bland. It can be full of colour, flavour, energy, and excitement. Healthy living is exactly that, living! She hopes to make it easier for others by sharing simple recipes, tips and tricks that work for her.
