Bullying, Body Image and a Plant-Based Diet with Lisa Marley
Play • 49 min

Lisa Marley is a plant-based chef, presenter and Chef Trainer for Pro Veg.

At school she, “Felt the odd one out. I didn’t have a good time at school and I wasn’t a happy child. Food was my friend but also the cause of quite a lot of unhappiness.”

And at home her parents could be judgmental, “Oh, you’ve lost weight or you've put on weight. That was their theme and became my theme as well.”

During her 20’s, Lisa worked in the fitness industry and then as a TV presenter.

But when she retrained as a chocolatier and went into therapy her life was transformed.

Tune in to hear Lisa’s empowering story, her love for a plant based diet and essential cooking tips.
