Menopause Food Health

Ensuring that we get the right vitamins and minerals into our diet, can help rebalance

our hormones which can help to reduce some menopause symptoms that we experience through perimenopause right through to post-menopause. 

 

For some women, this can cause debilitating symptoms which means they feel that they

can no longer carry on as they did before, both in their home and work life.  

 

Being aware and familiar with what vitamins and minerals are in what foods, knowing how they can boost certain areas of our bodies, can help to alleviate some of these symptoms. They boost our overall immune system, increase energy levels, decrease the risk of some cancers and osteoporosis, boost body confidence and improve overall well-being.

Diet & Nutrition

Why is it important

 

As a Diet and Nutritional Advisor,

the 3 essential areas I focus on are lifestyle, food preferences and goals/expectations.

It is essential that I give my clients the right tools to achieve success.

 

One of the most successful tools

used is guidance and structure on meal planning to suit you and your needs. 

 

Your goal can be to lose weight,

boost your immune system,

or to ensure that you are equipping your body with the correct vitamins

and minerals to improve

hormone balancing and healing.

Sean Barber

My love of food began at catering college in Broadstairs where I studied for my catering qualifications.  I now have over 35 years' experience in the food and catering industry. 

 During my career, I have also taught in areas of management, food safety, marketing, training and coaching.

 

For the past 5 years, I have been Chef/Patron of Charlie's Bistro in Kent.  I have attended various courses to expand my knowledge, most recently at the

'Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons' where I completed a fish and shellfish course.

 

My aim is to create new and exciting menus using a variety of fresh and everyday ingredients you can find at home. 

I believe that good healthy food needn't be complicated or expensive.

 

I will be providing quick and simple recipes which will ensure you receive all the vital vitamins and minerals which are essential in boosting health but not compromising

taste and quality.

 

I will be available for Q&A session where I will answer any question you may have

as well as share kitchen hacks and tips.
