This is always a really popular topic at my cooking demonstrations and something that I explain with clients, to ensure we have a really good understanding of how to read a food label because it can be quite overwhelming when you grab a product and you look at the label, and think, “What on earth am I looking at?” or “Which are the bad numbers again?” or “What does this mean or what does that mean?” So, I am going to make this a little easier for you.

I know that most people can discount making New Years Resolutions as ‘no-one ever sticks to them anyway’ and they are right! The stats out there say that between 88 and 92% of resolutions made will not come to fruition.

BUT really how realistic are the goals these people are setting? Are they just setting themselves up for failure?

Asparagus Frittata is a versatile dish that can be eaten hot or cold, for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Asparagus is rich in inulin, a dietary fibre, that provides an ideal food source for the good bacteria within our digestive tract. It also encourages the growth of good bacteria and therefore has a probiotic effect in the gut.

“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”

--- Rita

… 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….
