Healthy eating

**** GUEST POST ***** By Justine Knott, Psychologist

One of the reasons we often fall off track with a healthy eating plan is that we do not tune into our body signals and we eat unconsciously, often being triggered to eat by emotional needs and unconscious habits. Notice if you head for the fridge or pantry unconsciously. Whenever I open the cupboard door and reach for something I ask myself, ‘Do I really need this?’, ‘Am I really hungry?’, ‘Is this beneficial for my body?’ and ‘How am I going to feel after I eat this?’

Pumpkin and lentil soup

Pumpkin soup makes a great meal but sometimes you need load of bread to fill you up! In this recipe we add red lentils to bulk it up a bit. They also give it a lovely creamy consistency.

Red lentils are packed with fibre that helps lower cholesterol and also keeps you ‘regular’. The combination of the fibre and protein in lentils, means that you are going to be fuller for longer. They help keep you blood sugar balanced, so no afternoon energy crash! Plus they are rich in B vitamins and iron. This tiny nutritional giant is going to fill you up – not out!

“I met Chantelle when I was feeling tired, actually exhausted would be a better word, overweight and beginning to feel that my head was not in the right space.

She listened to me, put me on a path that helped me immensely. I just needed someone to hold my hand for a bit.  The weight came off, the energy came creeping back and the head was clearer.

I cannot thank her enough for walking me through this period and suggest if you feel anything like I did, let her take you by the hand and lead you through it”

… When I first saw Chantelle I had a long list of gut problems due in part to Coeliac disease which I had been recently diagnosed with. Chantelle assisted with the healing of my gut which has left me free of pain and bloating as well as the need to be constantly near a toilet! . I would recommend her and the approach she takes with clients….
