Symprove Spotlight Series

I was honoured to be asked to take part in Symprove’s Spotlight Series and share my expertise on plant based eating and gut health. Symprove is one of the most widely researched and evidenced based probiotic supplements. Probiotics supplements populate the gut with  ‘good’ gut bacteria. And a healthy digestive tract is needed to support many processes such as immune function and cardiovascular health

This interview is on  ‘plant based eating’ and the microbiome. Plant foods are essentially ‘pre biotics’. They are rich in fibre and phytonutrients which ‘feed’ the good bacteria. But did you know the term ‘plant based eating’ actually describes a whole spectrum of eating habits and not just veganism? 

Read on for more detail on

  • The latest research/recommendations regarding plant-based eating and gut health
  • Which types of plant-foods that are particularly beneficial for gut health 
  • Whether vegans have healthier gut microbiomes and overall gut health compared with non-vegans?
  • Simple and practical suggestions to eat more plant-based foods
  • Which nutrients should to be aware of on a vegan/plant-based diet

Vegan Patients with Nutrition Support – A Dietitian’s Perspective

Interview with Aymes Nutrition

It was great to be interviewed by Aymes. This UK wide supplement company is leading the way with vegan oral nutrition supplements. In my interview I share my approach to achieving a sustainable diet, the challenges faced by malnourished vegan patients and my top tips for a plant based diet.

As someone who has been in the field of nutrition for decades,  it’s exciting to see the whole landscape of clinical nutrition and dietetics develop to meet consumer demand for such products. Commercial vegan supplement drinks have been on the market for sometime but these clinical products are carefully formulated with malnutrition in mind. When I practised as a clinical Dietitian (a few years ago now !! ) We only had access to supplements that used whey (milk proteins). The plant protein used in these products is soya. The fat is palm oil – I was pleased to find out it is RSPO certified sustainable palm oil . Developments like this reduce the worries and potential barriers for vegans experiencing malnutrition in hospitals or undernutrition at home. 

As a Clinical Dietitian I worked in the area of nutrition support and still use these skills in my individual consultations today.

The Marriage of Nutrition and Osteopathy

I’m delighted to join Halos Osteopathy as their team nutritionist.

Good nutrition is the foundation of musculoskeletal health. I work with their clients to develop tailored plans which promote recovery and build physical resilience.

What might this mean in practice? For some, it could be targeted nutritional strategies to support inflammation resolution. For others it might mean bespoke meal planning.

The Halos clinic is based in Oxted but I also offer nutritional services for osteopath clients around the UK on a remote basis.

One Blue Dot – Sustainability tool kit for Nutritionists

It was great to be at the BDA’s launch of One Blue Dot campaign at Food Matters Live 2018.

One Blue Dot helps dietitians and nutritionists communicate environmentally sustainable food choices to their clients.

This area of work is very close to my heart so it is great to see it being brought in to mainstream dietetics.

There are some great plant based recipes as well as low meat options for those who don’t want to give up meat completeIy.
