From as long as I can remember, I have always had a passion for food. My first memory was baking bread when I was about 10 years old and I have been captivated by food ever since. It has only been over the last 10 years that I really started looking at the psychology behind food and how we can use food to heal not only our bodies, but our minds too. I trained as a Health & Wellness coach 10 years ago then went on to train as a nutritionist. I now have qualifications in raw food, foraging, nutrition and mental health, Ayurveda diet & nutrition and herbalism. I also hold a qualification as a Naturopath and use this for plant based medicine making. The main reason I started really looking into how food can heal us is due to my own personal health issues. I was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago and although I beat it once, I was given the devastating news that it had come back in the same place. As a consequence I lost 6 babies and suffered not only gruelling physical issues but my mental health took a huge battering too. I wanted to draw from the experiences that I had been through and do something positive with them to enable me to help others who need it and so Mood Foods was born! I now help clients who have a range of health complaints ranging from minor ailments to serious conditions such as cancer. Mood Foods focuses on nutrition, mental health & well being. I believe that eating a balanced diet is not just about a certain diet choice but more about an individual journey; A journey of mindful nutrition. Good, healthy, nutritional, wholesome food should be available to everyone irrespective of your circumstances. At Mood Foods, we are extremely passionate about helping people understand how food can have an instrumental effect on your mental health, your physical health, your psychological health and your spiritual wellbeing. Becoming more aware of your diet and the benefits of how food can help you to make the necessary adjustments which meet the needs of your body and mind, will give you everything you need to maintain and improve your life. We are all individuals. We are all unique. We all therefore have different ways in which we all want to be healthy and to live our lives to their full potential. There is so much advice on healthy living, diets, meal planning etc it can be hard to know what’s best for us. We all have a basic right as humans to enjoy a balanced nutritional diet and to sustain optimum health and well being (psychologically, physically, emotionally and spiritually) through different food groups. Eating healthy shouldn’t be about cost but in about knowing what foods to feed yourself and why. I also offer one to one and group sessions for food coaching. In these sessions we look at food mapping, food behaviours and why we crave the foods we do, meal planning, how to feed your own human energy system and a few other useful tools that will stay with you for life.
