and pleasure to meet you 🙂

As you can maybe guess from what you’ve seen around here, my big passion is food. Even better when it’s healthy, seasonal and local. I love eating, cooking, exploring new restaurants, cafés and bars no matter if it’s for a nice coffee, long breakfast or tapas in the sun. Luckily all of this suits perfectly with one of my other passions: traveling. Which means even more to explore! Food, nature, new people, shops, spas – actually on this blog it’s all about the pleasures of life, be it yoga, nature or the beauty of life as such 🙂 Ah yes, and life is mainly here in Malta, where we’ve been living for the last years, originally I’m Austrian.

But back to my food passion.. My mum is a great cook and the love for food has definitely been passed on me since I was a little child. When I grew up I remember our family holidays’ major topic always used to be “Where do we go for dinner???”. So no doubt, I was raised as a food lover. Home made and in restaurants. Simple but also sophisticated. And most importantly, prepared and enjoyed with love and appreciation. But my parents also raised me as an openminded person who loves to travel and explore, who is curious and interested in other people and countries and I’ll always be grateful to my parents for that.

In 2015, I gave birth to a little baby daughter who brought even more sunshine into our lives as we could ever imagine. So now my childhood nickname sunshine (thus, nadisunshine as the name for my blog) is being passed onto our little sunshine Zoe ❤ Naturally, being a mum also became one of the main topics on my blog.

To deepen my knowledge and passion about healthy food and everything else which nourishes us off the plate, I started studying to become a Holistic Health Coach for Integrative Nutrition with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York in 2016. If you feel like you or your family could do with some support on your eating habits or your journey of overall wellbeing in general, feel free to drop me a line! The first Health History session is for free. I also offer 1-1 consultations, private cooking classes and workshops on healthy eating, some of them specifically for mums-to-be under the name Mindful Mum (check out Facebook page here).

I hope one day this blog will be a nice collection of recipes, helpful recommendations of places to eat (or better not), stories you can relate to.. and hopefully it will inspire you, too.

If you feel like getting in touch with me just leave a comment or email me at nadisunshine@me.com . Me and my blog are also on Facebook  and every LIKE and Share makes my day a little brighter 🙂

Make the most out of every day…
Namaste & thank you for reading!
