Founder and Managing Director
Kate Freeman is the founder and managing director of The Healthy Eating Hub.
After 15+ years in the weight loss industry, Kate was dissatisfied with the lack of credible programs available to educate and empower people to change their eating habits long term. So, she created one herself.
The Healthy Eating Hub is based on the philosophy that everyone is a valuable and capable adult who simply needs to learn the skills and build the confidence to eat well long term.
My vision is to set people free from food stress and teach people how to eat well for the rest of your life.
Back in 2011 Kate started a healthy eating blog. Fast forward 9 years and The Healthy Eating Hub’s signature program is the culmination of her life’s work.
We’re Australia’s only online healthy eating program that combines ‘flip learning’, behaviour change principles and sustainable nutrition to help you build healthy eating habits that last a lifetime.
I want you to feel the freedom that is healthy eating without rules!
I’m Kate, a registered nutritionist, wife, mum of two, food lover and love holding random vegetables in photoshoots. I want you to be free from food stress, confident in your food choices, healthy and more than anything, move on with your life and do the things that make you happy!
Realistic and sustainable advice!
With 15 years under her belt working and studying in the nutrition and health industry, Kate Freeman, is a highly sought after speaker, writer and content creator who offers a range of services including cooking demonstrations, corporate presentations, menu and recipe analysis, health writing and much more.

A practical, whole foods approach to nutrition and healthy eating.
Kate believes in a whole foods approach to good health, focusing on practical strategies for modern, busy people. Her healthy eating philosophy is all about balance and creating long term healthy habits. She doesn’t believe in detoxes, fad diets, quick fixes or eliminating whole food groups. Her advice is based on sound scientific evidence combined with 15 years experience in the nutrition and weight loss industry.
Enthusiastic Home Cook
Kate loves food! From the purchasing, to the preparation and finally the partaking! A passionate home cook, she believes that by learning basic skills in the kitchen anyone can have the healthy lifestyle they desire. Kate spends a lot of time writing and developing healthy, easy to follow recipes.
Family, Food and Photos!
Kate is married to a wonderful man and they’re raising two beautiful kids together. She loves taking photos of two things. Her food and her family. She uses a Sony to shoot her own recipes and an iPhone 10 for all things social media. You can follow her foodie and family photos over on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Kate’s two favourite things are a good coffee and a good workout. Nothing better than coffee catch ups in a cosy cafe, straight after a killer workout!
