I’ve always taken pleasure in baking, being creative with ingredients and sharing - normally for an Irish family of 8-10 people.
I delight in flavours, colours and creating an aesthetically pleasing dish. In the past, I even went to bed at night thinking ‘what do I have in the fridge and how can I make those 3 ingredients into an interesting meal’’? The extra challenge and reward was in making these dishes as nourishing as possible.
In summary, food for me is my creative expression.
I graduated in 2015 from the College of Naturopathic Medicine in the UK, after 15 years working with the body through massage and before that in the environmental sector.
With this conscious exploration of the body throughout the years, I decided to look at it from a different angle and embrace nutrition and my love of exploring food.
My approach to nutrition takes into account the health of body, mind and spirit. I encourage my clients to take realistic steps to change and to have pleasure in doing so.
In this way, we can see exactly how the body responds to certain changes - the addition or removal of certain foods for example. Revealing truly what is going on in ourselves to ourselves.
Our health is not only the reflection of the world we were born into. We have control of our genetic expression and that of our children's' and the choices we make in terms of diet and lifestyle can influence this expression.
This is why I am particularly interested in women's’ health throughout pregnancy and after.
