Quick, easy and affordable ways to dish up tasty healthy meals... no matter how busy you are.
Lose the food-guilt and discover how to get more NOURISHING food on the table - every single day.
Hey, I’m Lisa Corduff
and I’ve helped almost 2,000 women quit procrastinating and start improving the health of their family through the food they eat.
Here - let me tell you what I mean…
Let’s face it, as women we're constantly being pulled in all directions.
We live in a time of mass information, mass guilt and mass overwhelm - especially around food.
‘Busy Mum’ is a thing. We don’t know how to do it any other way.
Yet, we are facing a dilemma.
In amongst all this busy-ness - we’ve noticed a serious problem. We are waking up to the fact that the food we are consuming from supermarkets, tuckshops, food courts, petrol stations and fast food outlets - is often not REAL FOOD.
It’s not food made from real ingredients and it’s not doing our health, or the health of our children, any favours.
Scrolling through Instagram and Facebook we think everyone else is doing the ‘healthy eating’ thing so much better than us. Don't stress! They're not. They are human just like us and have the same number of hours in their day.
I know, to start ditching the processed food … well, it feels like something extra to do in an already jam-packed timetable.
You might find yourself thinking:
“It’s just too hard”, and who’s got the time?
“It’s too big a mountain to climb”. I don't know where to begin?
"I’ve got the recipe books, so I'm halfway there, right?"
Or perhaps "I've joined a stack of healthy FB groups so know what I should do".
BUT THEN WE DON’T DO IT! That meaningful change that we crave just doesn't happen on its own.
We keep buying the foods we know aren’t great. We keep putting off trying new foods out of fear of #foodrejection from our kids (yep, it’s a thing too!). And we feel stuck in that weird paradigm.
I know it, I was there too.
There are good reasons why you’re feeling stuck (and they have nothing to do with you being a failure). There’s also a pretty awesome solution too.
More on that in a minute. But first, let me share something…
In 2010 when I had my first child a light bulb went off when I realised that I didn’t know what ‘healthy’ was. Here was this perfect little boy and I so desperately wanted to nourish him properly.
An academic at heart, I went back to study. I studied at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and after a year I was a certified ‘health coach’.
But in truth, I was just really confused!
I was exposed to 100 different dietary theories. ONE HUNDRED! All of these diets could prove ‘with science’ that theirs was the most effective way to eat. Paleo, Atkins, low-carb, raw, South Beach, vegan, vegetarian ... the list goes on.
It was overwhelming and made me a little crazy.
I just wanted to know what the heck to feed my family!
So here’s what I did…
I went back to basics and decided to eat real food or 'wholefoods'. I started avoiding things that had an extensive ingredient list or came in a box as much as humanly possible.
It was hard at first, and my husband, Nick, was a little confused.
But over time I noticed some major changes:
I began to feel better. In fact, I felt great.
My kids - yes, I’ve now got three! - actually ate the food I made for them and often asked for seconds (as did Nick).
My grocery bills dropped way down (because of the great tricks I learned along the way).
It sounds so easy to just ‘eat real food’ – but even armed with all the info, it's still been a huge transition.
I mean, I can’t forget that I know what a Snickers bar tastes like.
Or that the ultimate cure for a hangover was always a McChicken and Fries!
I can’t pretend that ‘lunch’ didn’t mean a vegemite sandwich for about 30 years of my life.
I can’t possibly expect myself to change everything I knew about food overnight.
And I don’t expect you to either.
I honestly believe that everything changed when I began taking small steps towards the bigger picture. I worked on shifting the way I thought about food.
And it worked.
Now, most of the time my family are now eating foods made from real, whole ingredients.
And I love helping other people do the same. One step at a time.
It’s why I’ve created Small Steps to Wholefoods.
But here’s the caveat: I don’t do guilt. I don’t do perfection. I don’t do big sweeping unsustainable changes overnight.
My space is about keeping it real. And when you enter, you become part of a growing movement of women saying NO to fads and restriction and YES to celebrating all the small steps towards improving the food we eat.
Want to know what a Small Stepper is? (And if you're one too??) It's a woman who:
- Holds a deep desire to improve the quality of the food she eats
- Feels BEYOND confused about what ‘healthy’ means and is seeking a balanced point of view and access to experts all in one spot. She needs it to be simple.
- Has tried a dozen different ‘diets’ but still doesn’t have a healthy relationship with food. She might even carry a bit of extra weight (and perhaps a touch of self-loathing). *hug*
- Owns a TRILLION cookbooks and follows a stack of healthy Facebook pages - but fails to put what she sees and reads into practice.
- As a mother she might carry around a little guilt around about the food her kids are eating. She knows it's got to improve, but feels worn down trying new things in the kitchen that sit uneaten on her kids' plates.
- Might be dealing with a health issue in her family and has no idea how to start making the necessary dietary changes.
How many of those sound like you? The Small Steps community understands that change takes time (especially if kids are involved). You want support and inspiration? It’s all here. Small Steppers are a special breed: they have knowledge, they take their time and make changes that stick.
It’s a pretty cool club!
Now, CAN YOU IMAGINE?
- A life without food guilt? (Yes, it’s possible!)
- Feeding your family delicious, nutritious wholesome foods, instead of processed junk that can trigger allergic reactions or cause tantrums and meltdowns?
- The feeling of ease in your life as things get simplified and food becomes enjoyable again?
- Knowing how to incorporate more real food into your meals (and even looking forward to those meals!)?
- Experimenting with new ingredients without breaking the bank or spending hours and hours in the kitchen?

"Lisa, you totally rock, I'm so thankful for all of the information that you have put together. This is such an amazing course - amazing value for money, I think it's the best one around. Real mums doing real good work for their families.”
“I just finished the last 'food interview' with Jude tonight, and I'm really sad that the course has come to an end. You have been to me, what Jude clearly is to you. So thank-you from the bottom of my heart. Last week the fussiest of my three ate carrot and capsicum sticks, pesto pasta and a green smoothie, and I did a happy dance across the kitchen. He looks pretty happy with his smoothie moustache too!”
“Thanks Lisa, I have enjoyed all of small steps and have learnt a lot too. My whole family has benefited from this journey and it has also encouraged my fussy 14.5 year old to start her own path of healthy eating.”
Listen, I know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed and guilty and stressed out about food.
I know what it’s like to have my eyes opened to the scary reality that processed and packaged foods might be contributing to ailments within my family.
I know what it’s like to continue buying the same stuff even though I know there must be better alternatives.
I know what it’s like to want to change, but having no idea how or where to start.
You have the power to change your life and fall in love with the simplicity and JOY of wholefoods eating.
And this program will help you do just that.
I can’t wait to see you in this round!
PS. My whole life my Dad taught me that everything was OK ‘in moderation’. I rebelled against it (of course) but am finding more and more that he was right (except in the case of margarine - that stuff is NEVER OK!)
PS. “Nature has a way of correcting itself and coming back to balance” was another Dad fave. I believe this is the situation we have found ourselves in. We have gone so far off balance that the food we are eating is not actual food (yeah, I'm looking at you Twisties - what the heck are you!?!). As we wake up to this reality, we know we need to find our way back to a healthy balance. Small Steps can help.
Can’t wait to see you soon x
I’m so glad you asked! I have an exclusive membership site for my Small Steppers who want to continue their journey. They get continued access to the course content and NEW information, inspiration and education every month.
They learn how to take their ‘next steps’ once they’ve mastered the basics. All participants of Small Steps to Wholefoods will be offered the opportunity to continue on in a month-by-month or annual basis. Details are supplied once you are in the program.
Yes! Although many of the meals contain meat, there is also a a stack of information about health and wellness from experts - all who promote a high consumption of plant based foods!
There is a lot of information that comes your way! You'll have lots of short videos from me and the guest interviews range from ten minutes to 45 minutes. So Small Steps becomes your TV station! Be prepared to watch the content, create a little time and space to take it all in. Our experts are very generous with the information they share. That’s one of the reasons why each module takes two weeks - one week you receive info daily and then next week you can implement a few ideas and catch up on vids if you haven't had time to watch. (If you have difficulty watching videos online or just prefer to see information written down, the videos will be available as transcriptions for you and audio files).
No. After years of joining programs that provide me with a menu plan that I couldn’t follow due to not being able to afford or find ingredients, or my family not liking the meals, or not finding meals appealing, or feeling crap because I fell off the wagon and thought I’d failed – I designed a program with a whole stack of ideas (there are 20 pages of recipes in the eBook you receive upon completion!) that you can pick and choose from throughout the program to suit your family and your budget.
YES! While this is not a ‘paleo’ program, a sugar-free program, a vegetarian program, it provides so many ideas for foods that you are bound to find something that suits. The FB group is a fabulous place to share recipes for more specific dietary needs.
My approach is that no specific food groups are off the table – but we should always strive for the BEST quality food at all times.
Even better! This is the best starting point. The information is wide ranging and everything is explained clearly. There is support via the FB group to ask your questions – no question is too silly!
NO! The whole course is about taking small steps when you are ready and when the budget allows. We focus on a meal each week so you don’t have to change everything at once. In fact, all throughout the program, I focus on celebrating small achievements – because with every small step you are getting closer to creating a sustained change.
NO! Most of the information is generic, however there is a slant on family food in the guest interviews. Some focus specifically on kids stuff – like the Real Food Lunchbox ideas interview with Jen Shaw.
YES! So many participants in Small Steps wrote and told me the biggest breathroughs were happening in their family because their partners were viewing some of the videos and starting to ‘get it’. But I would say that the program is most VALUABLE for those that do the shopping and preparing of food.
Good question! I am not a wholefoods goddess – I’m still learning too. But I’m learning from the best and you will be exposed to the women who have inspired me on my journey – most of whom are mums doing their best too. Good health is also about so much more than the food we eat. That’s why you’ll find information about mindset and movement.
