Buffy Ellen - Be Good Organics

Hi there, I’m Buffy! Welcome to Be Good Organics, my haven of plant-based health, nutrition and wellness. I have been sharing my love for plant-based whole foods here, as well as ideas on how to achieve your best ever health through a natural organic lifestyle.

I am a qualified Nutritionist, Naturopath, and Medical Herbalist. I am based in Auckland, with my partner Tony, our two crazy kids Mila and Torin, and pair of Burmese cats Zeus and Luna. My focus and passion is helping people improve their health, using a plant-based diet and lifestyle.

After experiencing my own healing journey from Graves’ disease using plant-based food and medicine, I now love to help others do the same. Through my Be Good Organics blog, I have shared hundreds of plant-based whole foods recipes with readers, as well as ideas on how to achieve your best health through a plant-based lifestyle. I also consult privately with naturopathic and nutrition clients, both from NZ and internationally. My most recent endeavour has been launching BE GOOD, my online plant-based cooking school and natural health education hub.

My specific areas of interest include hormones, fertility, pregnancy, babies, stress and anxiety, weight loss, and sleep.
