In her own words

I’ve worked with food for over 17 years and in the process, gained an in-depth insight into how it’s produced, packaged and labelled for consumers. My background in nutrition has also enabled me to focus on how these foods impact on our health and how to interpret labels to best effect.

While on maternity leave/career break, a dietitian friend and I came up with idea for the omega-3 cookbook. We felt there was nothing on the shelves that helped people take the advice to eat more omega 3 and translate it into practical solutions. As well as becoming experts on the subject of omega-3 fats and their benefits to health, we spent much time in the kitchen perfecting and tasting our recipes. Our book, The Top 100 Omega-3 Recipes was published in January 2009.

This experience has led me to believe that there’s often a big gap between knowing what’s good for you and how to actually incorporate it into what we eat.

I have an uncomplicated style where clarity is paramount. I don't speak in scientific language and am accomplished at explaining and helping clients with some of the more complicated health messages we’re bombarded with. My focus is always on eating better for everyday situations so that they become great habits that you don't even think about.

I’m a regular expert contributor to magazines and newspapers and have also appeared as an expert for BBC2's E Numbers documentary series. I’m currently working on another BBC documentary about healthy foods and labels.
