health news with Special Olympics


Did a fabulous talk for Special Olympics Ireland with one of their athletes and the participants of the fundraising event for Cork Mini Marathon. Got a great response from participants when I started probing deeper into how to create more lasting sustainable changes in their health.

"I asked Lucy to deliver a talk on heath and nutrition as part of a fundraising programme for Special Olympics. She delivered an insightful and engaging interactive discussion that captivated the minds of the participants while also giving practical information on how to choose healthier eating and lifestyle habits. I would recommend Lucy 110% and hope to work with her again in the future."

Newgrange Gold Nutrition Club

I had so much fun with Deirdre, Diane and Catherine doing this 4 week 'Healthy Eating with Oils' programme with Newgrange Gold. I find that cooking and using plant oils for health is one topic that confuses many people.

However, working with the Newgrange Gold Rapeseed and Camelina oils, we came up with the 'Nutrition Club' idea and over the 4 weeks we learnt and shared how to use, store, shop and cook with oils so that the health benefits could be maintained.

I was impressed that the health benefits of the oils, such as reducing digestive disturbances, managing cholesterol levels and improving family health, could be experienced within such a short time.

Look Good Feel Good Kinsale

Feel Good Look Good Kinsale 2010
I worked closely with Jola from Jola's restaurant in designing the canapes for the night. I talked about the principles of healthy eating and presented the food at the same time. I always think that when people actually eat the food and hear the message, it works so well - it's the practical side of health that people want.
On the night we served:
Grilled chicken marinated in honey and sesame with grilled vegetables - highlighting the importance of lean meat with chicken which has been coated in sesame to add fibre and esssential fatty acids, and grilled vegetables helping people reach their 5 a day.
Smoked salmon with avocado puree on courgette and carrot pancakes - increasing the intake of good quality of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids to balance your essential fatty acid ratio on vegetable based pancakes - a totally different way of adding to your 5 a day.
Goats cheese with basil pesto on wholewheat toast - whole grain carbohydrates contain more fibre and nutrients than refined white bread. Goats cheese can be easier to digest for people with cows milk intolerance.
Prawns in garlic and coriander - prawns are a great source of trytophan, a protein that gets converted in the body to serotonin (helping you feel good) and then melotonin (helping you sleep better). The garlic and coriander are great anti-bacterial foods and so perfect if you are coming down with a cold...
What a yummy way of learning....
