I really enjoy helping people to live healthier, happier lives. I do this by first talking with them about their aspirations and desires. We talk about where they are now and what they need to do to get there...

Vitamin D – the sunshine vitamin

Isn’t it lovely to feel to warmer weather slowly encroaching upon us?  Getting out of bed without your toes freezing is certainly a plus.  I saw strawberries in one of our local supermarkets the other day.  I have to admit to feeling a little excited at the thought of all the delicious summer fruits to come...

 Is sugar really that bad?

Nigel Latta did an excellent expose on sugar a couple of weeks ago on TV 1.  If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. His overarching question was ‘Is sugar the new fat?”...

Welcome to NutritionSense!


    NutritionSense has grown out of my passion to help people achieve vibrant health and so enable them to reap all the benefits that are associated with that.

"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food"                                                                                 - Hippocrates.

    Learn how to live a better life by eating well and taking care of yourself – you are definitely worth it!

    We all have lots of challenges in life. Being fit and healthy doesn’t have to be one of them. I am here to support you on your journey to vibrant health. I can show you how to:

  • make gradual, positive choices that will last a lifetime.
  • fuel your body and mind with nutritious and delicious foods.
  • achieve your health goals.
  • discover what works best for your body.
  • make changes that help you feel your best from the inside out.
  • add positive choices to your lifestyle to achieve the results you want.

It’s not a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Get to know what works for you!

Nutrition consulting is personalized to suit your individual needs:

  • improved well-being
  • weight loss & weight management
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • sports nutrition
  • high cholesterol
  • insulin resistance
  • high blood pressure
  • anaemia
  • adult, child & adolescent nutrition
  • vegetarian lifestyles.

    Good health is your best insurance policy. The contributions you make, in the form of healthy choices on a daily basis, are what guarantees results. You are never too young or too old to start! Eating is not just about the calories we consume, it’s about a body that is well nourished and optimally healthy. You don’t have to be skinny to be healthy. Together we will design a plan that fits into your lifestyle, not the other way around. This is about eating well so that you can live well. It’s about making small changes that, over time, will have maximum impact.

    Why diets don’t work: They don’t take into account that we are individuals and what works for one person, may not work for another. This is why individualized nutrition advice is the most successful way to achieve your health goals. Just because a food is low in calories, does not automatically make it good for your health. It is more important to look at the nutrient content of a food than the calorie content.  A body that is healthy, will always move towards its ideal weight.


Remember, we are what we eat!




Be healthy, Be well, Be energized!
