I have been a vegetarian most of my life and a vegan since 2014 and as such it feels natural for me to specialise in vegan and vegetarian nutrition.
More and more people are moving towards a reduced meat diet, for a mix of ethical/environmental and health reasons. This means it is now easier than ever to find animal-free alternatives but this has also resulted in a rise in junk food options. When I first became vegan there was little choice but to have a wholefoods diet as there was little else available. But now it is impossible to go to the supermarket without being bombarded with temptations of vegan ice-cream and pizza and you can’t get far down the high street without being tempted by vegan cakes or even Gregg’s sausage rolls!
A predominantly plant-based diet or fully vegan diet can be one of the healthiest. Studies have found vegetarians tend to have diets higher in vegetables and fibre and lower in saturated fat and cholesterol than meat-eaters. But it is by no means automatically healthy and it is important to give consideration to where certain nutrients will come from.
Are you considering going vegetarian or vegan?

Do you want to know how to safely raise your children as vegans?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions, I could help you to find the best vegetarian or vegan diet for you and your family.
