THE NOURISHED TRIBE
THE NOURISHED TRIBE
Eleanor and Marianna, met while studying Nutrition at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition, London. They initially bonded over the struggles of studying at the ripe old age of 40 and sweaty TRX classes but then quickly realised that they shared a common passion; making health and nutrition simple and accessible to all.
Their goal for you is longevity and wellness and a comfortable relationship with food. They don’t believe in short term fixes or boot camps when it comes to health. Long term sustainable health changes are about progress not perfection and they created The Nourished Tribe Singapore to support and encourage you along this path.
Both Eleanor and Marianna have a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy
from the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION) in London.
They also integrate health coaching skills with their nutritional therapy, as often the hardest part is putting advice and actions into practice.

From as far back as I can remember, I have always loved food. However, like many, my twenties will not win me any nutritional awards. I was constantly on the latest diet. Work and socialising were my number one priority. Evening meals consisted for the most part of a ready meal or a bar snack with a glass of house white.
Fast forward to my thirties… Two children, work, commuting, frantic nursery runs, and increasing demands placed on me from all angles, my health and life was spiralling out of control. Anxiety and stress (and all the gastrointestinal side effects that go with it) were my new best friends. I knew I had to make some changes for myself and for my family.
I learnt first-hand just how instrumental nutritional therapy can be in really changing the way you think, feel and look. Believe me, having been there myself, I know what it is like to let the daily challenges of life creep up and slowly engulf you. Studying nutritional therapy has meant that I am now fortunate to be in a position to be able to share all my knowledge with you and support you and your family on your health journey.
I know first-hand what it's like to be truly unwell and unhappy in your body
and I know how making changes in what you eat can make you feel like a different
For most of my life I struggled with multiple undiagnosed food allergies, digestive
issues and an autoimmune disorder as well as a troubled relationship with food.
However I had a stressful corporate job and then 2 young children and it was so
much easier just to try to ignore the plethora of symptoms. It was only when I hit
rock bottom, unable to function properly and reduced to a handful of foods, that I
found a Functional Medicine Practitioner.
It was a light bulb moment when I realised that I had been oblivious to the fact that everything I was eating was creating an ever more vicious cycle of ill health and, as such, feeding an already troubled relationship with food. I realised that I had spent years being a shadow of the person I could have been and that, purely through adjusting my diet, a stronger, healthier, more vibrant version of me existed. Seeking better health for myself and ultimately for my children led me to study nutrition and to be truly passionate about helping people to take control of their health and to foster a harmonious relationship with food, not only as nourishment for their bodies but for their souls.
