Jo

"We asked Hayley to come and help us after our 17 year old daughter was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Hashimoto’s.   Hayley was fantastic in starting with an in-depth allergy test which we discovered Steph was intolerant to meat, something we hadn't thought about.
Hayley and Steph worked together choosing meal plans and cooking together.  Steph found Hayley great fun and easy to talk to. She has a great way about her that makes you feel at ease, but also has a vast amount of knowledge to help you. Thank you so, so much for helping Steph I hope we can keep our friendship and cross paths again."

“Hayley worked closely with me over a number of weeks to make our canteen menu more nutritious and appealing.  Her vast knowledge of homely, nutritious cooking combined with my cost understanding meant that together we were able to create a tasty and accessible menu that was more profitable and healthy.  Cleverly assembled  meal deals meant that the sales of water and fruit shot up! Six months later we are looking at a happier, healthier and more productive work force.”

“Hayley is amazing.  She really got me back to love cooking again and having variety in my food.  She really taught me a lot about what’s best to spend money on and how water is so important and why.   She really listened to my current situation with work and how we could best deal with brining in new foods.  Thank you Hayley.”

“At the grand old age of 81 I am feeling more confident and motivated than I have done in twenty years.  Hayley’s Mediterranean approach to food has inspired me to cook more from scratch and feel passionate about what myself and my husband eat.  Looking back I can see that I had slipped into a bit of a depressed slump but now  I have a whole new lease for life. I feel alive and full of purpose again.”

"I have been on every diet you can think of and got to the stage where I didn’t have any idea what food to buy each week...low fat...no fat....sugar-free....you name it, it’s all forced in our faces. So I contacted Hayley and she has completely transformed the way I look at food.  I cook with oil, have butter and home-made dressings on all my salad. Nothing in my house says low fat or no fat. Yes, it’s been a slow process, but my weight is going down bit by bit and most of all I’m enjoying cooking and eating with real ingredients.  I’m so thankful for Hayley for not only giving me the right tools to do this but for also helping me like me again.  I feel fabulous. Thank you Hayley you’re my star. "

“Hayley came and cooked a three course dinner at our house.  What a lovely experience it was – totally taken care of – from ordering ingredients, taking account of dietary requirements and matching some fantastic wines.  Such delicious food – each course better than the one before.  It was a great treat and well worth it – thank you Hayley!”

"Hayley was really fantastic. Her expertise was required to help my mother with a nutrition plan having recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer's and help me with a detox plan with the goal of losing weight. Her assessment was spot on and her manner was professional, relaxed and engaging. She is passionate and knowledgeable on her subject. My mother is eating a balanced diet and I have lost weight on a sensible and delicious plan!! I cannot recommend her enough. Good common-sense advice delivered with empathy and precision."

“Myself and my husband Chris both work full time so preparing healthy weekday food for us and our son was proving to be a nightmare.  With Hayley’s help I now understand what really constitutes ‘healthy’ and can confidently prepare quick evening meals that taste great and fill us all up because they are full of goodness. Her passion and intuitive understanding of Southern European food and lifestyle  is inspiring and I now understand so much more about the ‘essential factors’ of a healthy diet.”

"I’ve just finished an intensive 4 sessions with Hayley. I needed guidance to clarify mixed messages about what foods are good for you and to reverse my heart condition. That’s a big ask but I feel a huge improvement already. I have been deeply impressed with her knowledge base and her menus all make sense. She has provided a great blueprint for life and the right approach to food. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who has a need or wants to know more about great food that’s good for you."

“We asked Hayley to review our meal plans to make sure we are covering off all the vitamins and minerals our 3 year old needs as we were concerned about his energy levels.  Hayley has given us really clear, practical direction and managed to cut through the overload of information we were getting swamped with online.  As a parent it can sometimes be daunting asking for help on things you think you should just know but Hayley’s approach is so friendly and down to earth it’s like talking to a (very knowledgeable!) friend.”

"Hayley is very friendly and approachable, she is also a very knowledgeable nutritionist.  I contacted her as I have found it difficult these past few years to lose weight (to the point where I had put down a deposit for bariatric surgery) and was constantly drawn to yo-yo dieting; Hayley provided me with bespoke one to one sessions and gave me the motivation I needed to start a healthy eating plan and break bad habits.  Hayley is always on the end of the phone and regularly gives support through text messages, making sure I keep on track.  Would highly recommend."

“I came to Hayley when I was going through a different time with my health and cooking.  I really needed some support through a very difficult time when I had to manage so many different life-changing aspects, which meant that my food intake wasn’t great and had become a bit of a hassle.  Hayley has really helped me to get back to enjoying cooking and knowing what dietary aspects are important on a daily basis.  She has taught me that fat is good for you! She really spent the time getting to know me, supported me through the changes and provided me with high-level knowledge, which I now use with confidence.  I highly recommend Hayley with her open and honest approach.”
