Feedback from Schools Education Programme

“Many thanks for your very informative talk last night in Summercove School. Your advice was a breath of fresh air and it was great to hear someone that is passionate about real food and understands its affect on our health.” Carol, Cork

Nutrition Clinic

I am delighted that I sought Lucy’s professional help. I found her one-on-one sessions very focussed and insightful. Lucy really knows her stuff and her approach is very practical. Within weeks I could see the results I wanted and more! Fiona, Cork

I first started using Lucy’s services a number of months ago. I had a goal to lose weight, regulate my blood sugars and improve my energy. Being in the health profession myself, and working into the evenings, it is important that I don’t have lows in energy throughout the day. Working with Lucy allowed me to get a better understanding of how certain foods affected my body. She was able to guide me to control and regulate my sugar dips during my working day and to stop all energy drops especially mid afternoon and early evening (my busiest time of day). She is incredibly professional and knowledgeable in her chosen field. Working with Lucy was not a regimented diet plan, it was about becoming aware of how foods affect our body and being held accountable for wht I eat. I would highly recommend Lucy to anyone who wishes to get healthier through better eating. Benjamin, Cork

I met Lucy last year and needed advice to get my energy back after a prolonged back injury.
She was very helpful and tailor made nutritional needs for my lifestyle.
Lucy was very personable and would recommend her services.
Ruth, Cork

I met Lucy earlier this year through the Network of Enterprising Women (NEW) and subsequently went to see her at her clinic for nutritional advice. Lucy is clearly an expert in her field but in addition to that is focused on delivering the message of healthy eating to everyone. What really strikes me is her desire to ensure that each individual gets the maximum from their time with her. I was delighted with the outcome of my consultation with Lucy and am happy to recommend her. Theresa, Cork

I was fortunate enough to attend a presentation given by Lucy, at the March Network meeting. I found her to be enthusiastic, with an admirable love for her job. Her presentation skills are second to none - encouraging audience participation made her talk all the more dynamic. Bravo Lucy. Natasha, Cork

Some feedback from my November events on healthy eating

Here are some of the comments from my November events. People are so receptive to the concept of healthy eating and it appears all they want are the tools - I provide plenty in my cookery courses and talks

I really enjoyed your vibrant and informative talk last night and I’ll check out your website too” Claire, Dublin

“Just wanted to say thank you so much for such an informative (but not too tough to follow) and passionate talk last night.It was one of the best food presentations Ive ever seen, and made the whole idea of eating healthy such a natural choice.” Creona, Dublin

“I really enjoy your lecture, have eaten both quinoa and barely since.” Annabel, Kildare

Some feedback from my healthy eating cooking demos based in the home.

I think it’s a great thing for families to do together. Since the demo Mum has been over to my house and we have been food shopping together discussing the whole concept of healthy eating etc. Julia, Cork

‘I am very pleased with what I learned and have gained the confidence I didn’t have before the course to cook and try out recipes’ Louise, Cork

I spent most weekends cooking some of the dishes learned at the demonstration. I also used them for lunch at work during the week. I now get more energy and feel better from my foods.

I learned about foods I’ve never heard of before and how to cook them. The dishes presented were good for lunches, dinners, breakfast and snacks to the range was varied and very useful. Brian, Cork

I benefited particularly in terms of meal organisation, shopping, also with confidence using herbs and spices. I find I’m eating a lot less cheese, red meat and spuds that before. I’ve learnt new habits and found a new love for cooking family meals….. Best thing I did for ages… I’d say it was ‘life changing’ Ruth, Cork

“Its great to see how healthy eating can be achieved so easily and with such great variety”

“It was great to see recipes that I wouldn’t normally use but will now certainly use and play around with and be more confident using”

Feedback from Seminars/Talks

“We would like to thank you for your excellent presentation. The feedback was very positive and we would like to thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to present to the Munster CPA” Cormac Fitzgerald, Munster CPA Society

I first met Lucy at a NEW networking event earlier this year. I was impressed by her warmth and friendliness. I am now an avid follower of her weekly Food for Living articles in the Cork Independent. Her approach is always positive and upbeat and the recipes and healthy eating tips are practical and user friendly. Fiona, Cork

Writing and Expert Advice

Lucy has been writing her column, Food for Living, for the Cork Independent weekly since the beginning of 2010.
Lucy’s knowledge of her subject is unparalleled, but unlike many ‘expert’ writers she is adept at keeping it simple and available to the reader. She manages to combine her knowledge of nutrition with that staple of local newspapers, the recipe column, with great success, and she has a very loyal following among our readers. In our recent survey she was found to be our second most popular columnist.
Deirdre, Editor, Cork Independent

Lucy recently put together tips for our brides in the lead up to their big day. They were excellent, to the point and easy for the brides to take on board. Our brides were delighted with the information. Helen, Celtic Ross Hotel
