Changing eating habits is hard and deeply personal. One of the ways that you can plan for success when you make changes to your diet, or even if you are just a very busy person wanting to eat healthy, is to plan your meals on a weekly basis. A good time might be a Saturday where you can allocate an hour or perhaps you prefer to have two slots in the week, allocating half an hour to each and planning 3-4 days at a time. Here’s how to do it:Read More
I will write a personal recipe book just for you!
I am delighted to announce that I have launched a new service due to rising demand from my clients. I recognise how difficult it is to make the necessary changes to your diet when:
You are super busy
You need to accommodate food intolerances
You have been told to follow a specialist diet like low GL for weight loss or low FODMAP for digestive complaints.
It’s not easy but I can help!
To help my clients meet the demands of a new dietary regime, I can put together 7-21 day menu plans with delicious recipes to tempt you to eat healthier for a vibrant mind and body. You will find it easier to stick with the plan in order to get the best results possible.
Without doubt, we all come in different shapes and sizes, with different backgrounds, upbringings and views on life. It’s no different regarding our food choices and we are all biochemically unique in our minds and bodies, our health and symptoms, as well as food likes and dislikes. Therefore there is never one diet that fits everyone. There needs to be adaptation for each and every one of us.
Here are the reasons why my personalised approach to recipe creation helps make meal planning easier for you:
you don’t need to look up cookery books or websites to find recipes that suit your individual health challenges and tastes in food
foods you are avoiding are already taken out of recipes and you will have lots of alternative suggestions
recipes are easy to follow and chosen according to the time you have available to prepare and cook food
shopping lists are provided so that you can easily get the food you need and check what you already have in your cupboard, cutting down on waste
you are more likely to stick to a plan when you have recipes that you enjoy
you will learn about recipes that you will use time and time again whilst being tempted to try out new ones and different foods
you will have less stress about making mistakes and giving up as you will always have the right foods to hand
you will improve your nutrition and get better results (gut health, weight loss, immunity etc)
I look forward to helping you eat for a vibrant mind and body! Call me on 07880 353964 to discuss your needs!

Many people suffer from digestive discomfort these days. Symptoms range in severity from sluggish bowel movements, diarrhoea or loose stools, often alternating with constipation. They may get bloated frequently and pass excess wind, with sometimes foul-smelling stools, or general discomfort after eating. Another symptom is mild acidity, known as acid reflux.
The main symptoms which are ‘red flags’ to get checked out medically initially is blood in the stools or any severe pain in the stomach or abdomen. Another common symptom is excess acidity or gastric reflux, often the bacteria h.pylori is the underlying cause.
Once these problems have been eliminated you may be told that you have ‘IBS’ and that there’s nothing much you can do for this apart from over-the-counter remedies such as Rennie, Gaviscon or Colpermin (peppermint oil). You aren’t ill, however daily life is uncomfortable for you as you never know when you’ll feel discomfort and need the loo. Not really something you want or need to live with.Read More
In the past, you may have tried many times to achieve your ideal weight and fitness goals. What usually tends to happen when you embark on a new diet is that you start out feeling motivated, you've told yourself off for overeating in the past and embarked on a strict new regime and you are 100 % committed. You may set off well, achieving initial weight loss, however pretty soon you reach a plateau, maybe you get your period, have an eating binge and think you’ve gained weight as a consequence, you feel bored with the restricted food you are eating or simply too hungry with uncontrollable cravings. And then, in a flash - you 'drop off the wagon'. After a few days you re-gain all the weight you lost (maybe more), you return to unhealthy ways of eating and then declare that nothing works. You may have told yourself that you cannot change, that things will always be this way and that change is too difficult. Does this sound familiar?Read More
