On My List: Grocery Shopping with Lola Berry

This fair-headed Aussie is making a big splash over here in the States with her unique take on health – and we’re eager to get on board! Lola Berry is a nutritionist who gleans her pearls of wisdom from her own personal journey: she lost forty four pounds in just twenty weeks, utilizing what she calls an “anti-diet.” With a serious focus on wholesome foods, she stocks her kitchen with only fresh items that resemble a Paleo diet – all things that come from land and sea, except for processed grains, legumes and dairy.

What makes Lola different from all the other health pros popping up around town? She lets her wildly audacious personality live front center! She has somehow managed with ease to get the world amped about health and good food. Her angle? The shock factor. There is very little Lola Berry won’t do in the name of nutrition: she has convinced a TV host to swallow raw wasabi on live national television, has munched on one of the world’s hottest chillies, and (our personal favorite) has handed out actual black-eyed peas to celebrities at an official Black Eyed Peas red carpet event. With personality and passion to boot, she’s using all kinds of tactics to get others into living a healthy lifestyle they love. Take a stroll with Lola through her local grocery store, and see exactly what fuels this colorful Aussie’s fire…
