A Vegetarian Diet - The Pros & Cons

Unless you’ve been living under a stone for the last few years, it can’t have escaped your notice that being vegan, vegetarian or at least mostly meat free has been big news. Eschewing meat in favour of veggie alternatives has also been huge in the recipe book business, and glamorous protagonists include (Deliciously) Ella Woodward and Madeline Shaw. But could you take the plunge, and should you, even if you could? I’m often asked by friends, family and clients, and here is my view: People become vegan or vegetarians for many different reasons, including health, religion, concerns about animal welfare, or a desire to eat in a way that avoids excessive use of environmental resources.

Boost Your Mood

Food + lifestyle upgrades to lift your spirits The link between physical health and what you eat is well understood, but did you know that what you eat has a huge impact on your mood and how you feel? I wonder how we forgot about this connection, because it was common knowledge in times gone by.

Childhood Eczema & Gut Health

Eczema (also known as atopic dermatitis) now affects 1 in 5 children in the UK. If your child is one of the 20% diagnosed with this condition, they’ll suffer from cracked skin, redness, bacterial infection, itching and scratching. I wonder if that all sounds familiar? Add to that broken sleep (as skin gets hotter and itchier at night), digestive problems and even asthma and allergies, and it all adds up to not much fun for anyone. What exactly is eczema? The skin is the body's largest organ, providing a strong barrier to protect it from infections and irritation. It’s made up of a thin outer layer, an elastic middle layer, and a fatty layer at the deepest level. Each layer contains skin cell

Nutrition MOT

Following a period of illness I decided to take my life in hand and decided that my diet needed an overhaul. As a family we have adapted the changes easily into our busy lives and have enjoyed the meals from the menu plan. It has made us look more carefully at the foods we are buying. If you’re reading this, you’re obviously contemplating looking at your diet. I would definitely recommend Donna to help you with this.

Gut Healing Programme

I contacted Donna because I had health issues and a poor diet. I'm so pleased I did as she helped me change my diet and I now feel so much better with her support. In fact, I was so impressed that I advised my daughter to see Donna, and she in turn has recommended Donna to her friend. Overall Donna is competent and understanding, easy to talk to and sympathetic to a person's needs. I would give her a 5 Star rating *****
