Bannie Williams

Hello! I’m Bannie. I am a Nutritionist, author of my debut book The Smoothie Manifesto and founder of The Healthy Ingredient.

My nutrition and health philosophy is quite straight forward. I don’t believe in trends, fads or restrictive diets; I believe in nourishing the body with as many nutrients as possible and steering clear of anything processed or refined. In my opinion, there is no such thing as a ‘one diet fits all approach’. I believe it is about listening to your body and learning what works for it and what doesn’t.

I am proud to have created and photographed the recipes on The Healthy Ingredient as well as in my book, The Smoothie Manifesto.

Bannie is a registered Associate Nutritionist with The Nutrition Society Australia.
