Q & A

Are the Monkey Chatter recipes right for me?

After completing a one-to-one consultation I will adapt recipes so that they are a perfect fit for your family. I will show you tips and tricks that save time and ensure that you and your family are getting the nutrients to thrive.


Why Monkey Chatter and not a recipe book?

How often have you bought a new recipe book only to find that most of the recipes look too complicated, contain ingredients that you don't like/ can't eat, take too long and when you do follow a recipe half the family dislikes it! It ends up being a waste of money, a waste of food and a waste of your precious time; the whole experience can be demoralising. By going through what your family likes to eat, taking into account your time, dislikes, budget, capabilities etc. together we can tailor new family favourites that you can all enjoy and you will know that you are feeding everyone with healthy, nutritious and delicious food.


A family member has been diagnosed with coeliac disease, I'm worried that we can never eat as a family again. Can Monkey Chatter help?

Yes. I can adapt recipes so that they are completely gluten free so that you don't have to worry about cross contamination. I can also advise on ingredients, where to buy etc. You will become confident enough to know that you can all eat happily together again.


Will the healthy ingredients cost the earth and will the Monkey Chatter meals taste like "rabbit food"?

I will go through all of the meal recipes with you and we will already have established a budget at our one-to-one consultation. I will be showing you the type of family favourites that I cook at home where I have a very critical audience - namely, two children who are very wary and can detect anything "unusual"!

When we have our follow up meeting we can discuss and change anything that you feel hasn't been a success.


I suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and just don't have the energy to spend ages in the kitchen. Can Monkey Chatter help?

The recipes will be tailored to your capabilities. In certain circumstances I may suggest that you invest in a specific piece of equipment to make you life easier, such as a slow cooker. Where your health is compromised, I will make sure that your meals are as nutrient dense as possible whilst being mindful of any digestive limitations. You have a right to eat delicious food that will nourish, comfort and aid recovery.
