ABOUT

Nutrition is where my passion lies. I love good food and cooking, eating is a joy for me and knowing that what I feed the family impacts upon our health and wellbeing is empowering and hugely satisfying. 

 

But it hasn’t always been that way! In our house we've had food intolerances to contend with - egg, dairy, gluten and yeast - and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, as well as a husband who isn’t home until late, two children who like very different foods, and me, a time short, health-conscious mum who likes to cram each meal with as many nutrients as possible. I used to get so frustrated by the amount of time I spent on thinking about what to cook, meals that would work for all of our family needs and that would be enjoyed. Planning what to eat often felt like a military operation, I felt as though I always had to compromise on my schedule if I wanted to cook from scratch and I refused to give in to ready-made convenience food. Food was taking up so much time in a negative way, that mealtimes were often unpleasant, and a source of stress. Not a great environment for digestion and harmony!  

I took my cooking back to basics, using original recipes as building blocks for redevelopment and adapting family favourites to be as nutritious and delicious as possible. After a lot of trial and error I discovered what worked, which brands were better and what definitely didn't work. As a qualified Nutritional Therapist and Nutritional Health Coach I knew about the nutritional value of food and the theory behind many diets, but there is nothing quite like having hands on practical experience for learning. I became confident in what I was preparing to the point that now I’m able to share this knowledge and help remove the frustration, many of us feel, out of mealtimes and further more life.
