Health & Happiness


Health & Happiness

I grew up in a family where we celebrated life with food. Good wholesome food, cooked from scratch. There wasn’t a lot of money and treats were rarely the kind that came in packets. A birthday treat was Steak, chips, mushrooms and peas. Every Sunday was a traditional roast cooked in the coal range. We were active farm kids. I spent most days out on my pony exploring the forests and bridleways of rural England. The only ice-creams and sweets I remember were on our annual holidays to the Isle of Wight.

I left home young, I was 16 and went to work for a horse dealer in Cheshire. We lived in and all our meals were provided. It was often the kind of food I had never eaten before and way too much of it! But I was homesick and for the first time in my life I found solace in food, I remember walking to the local shop after work to stock up on sweets for the evening, having already eaten 3 huge cooked meals. I also found the local pub. I left home at 51kg, 8 months later I was 83kg this was the start of my battle with food, body image, depression and self esteem.

I went from being young and enthusiastic, with a vitality and joy for life, to being stressed, exhausted and depressed. I was 16 for heaven’s sake. That was the first time in my life that I realised that food is our fuel it is what we end up being and feeling.

I was 16, my joints ached, I had no energy, everything hurt and I had lost all my ambition and love for life.

Lifestyle choices, I smoked as well, led me to feeling sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I went home to my family and nurtured with good food and exercise I started to regain my health.

But from that point in my life I have always struggled with my weight.

It has been a constant battle.

When life goes wrong I eat!

For a good part of my 20’s and 30’s I was bulimic.

However, I am deeply grateful for this journey. It has taught me how closely food and emotions are linked.

We are responsible for what we choose to eat and how this affects our body and mind.

I now live an energised life, that is busy, full and happy.

I am so passionate about what I do, giving people back their mojo is the greatest part of my job. I remember how it feels to be stuck on that self destructive wheel and have no one to reach out to. If I can fill that gap for one person I am truly blessed.

For your best life, learn to eat well, drink plenty of water, exercise daily, surround yourself with positive like minded people. Push beyond your comfort zone. Love your self enough to make the changes you need to make to live your life to the full!

Feature Article

Every cell of who you are comes from what you choose to eat and drink.


Our food intake has a greater impact on how we feel than we ever give it credit for.

If we fill our bodies with junk food, we will feel and look like junk.
Yes I do believe that it is that simple.
Eat to fuel your body well 80-90% of the time. Eat for the joy and pleasure of food 10-20% of the time. Moderation and balance are the key.
By eating well most of the time I feel, vital, alive and full of energy.
Life is too short to feel like crap from eating crap!
Choose to eat well, hydrate well and move a little or even a lot every day!
Nourish your body with real food, food is fuel, food is pleasure but food is also what nourishes your internal battery so that you can function well on a daily basis.
Stay supercharged to live your best life by eating natural whole-foods.
Bring back the joy of cooking, eating and sharing real food as a family.
It’s not about going on a diet, it’s about making positive choices that become part of how you live your life.
I live my life with purpose and passion and I love food!!
Eating well should never be dull or boring, nor should you feel deprived. Mix it up and be daring in your cooking.
Think about eating well between now and the festive season, so that you can enjoy a few treats without any guilt attached. Plan some healthier choices over the holidays too.
Live well, laugh lots and don’t take a single day for granted,
