Cooking has always been at the heart of Melissa Delport’s home, but it wasn’t until she became interested in nutrition that she recognized the connection between what we eat and the state of our health.

Melissa sets out to show how following a healthy and balanced diet can have positive benefits for our bodies and our wellbeing. Having a happy digestive system can result in a calmer state of mind, and a greater ability to manage stress. In Heal she presents recipes for healthy and balanced eating, as well as nutritional tips and guidance.

About The Author

Melissa Delport is a Cape Town-based food photographer and blogger who loves to travel. Her food career started when she entered a cooking competition in South Africa. Her love of food was born while learning to cook at her mother’s and grandmother’s knees. After years as a fad dieter, Melissa started to discover the path to health and wellbeing. Linking this directly to food and working with health coach Nikita Stallbom, Melissa’s new mindset of mindful consumption was integrated into her food philosophy. Learning to release fear around mealtimes, coupled with her knowledge of food and a desire to share this way of eating, the concept of WHOLE – Bowl Food for Balance was born, Melissa’s first cookbook.
