Welcome to my personal web site and blog. Some areas of the site still aren’t as complete as I would like them to be, but slowly but surely it will get there. There just never seem to be enough hours in the day and when I do snatch some minutes, I seldom get the desire to get on my computer as Maya, my gorgeous eleven year old daughter is far too alluring!
Please feel free to 'drop-by' to the site whenever you like. You can also come and see me in my practices which I run in Marylebone, London and Leicester, if you want my help sorting out a health problem. I treat a wide variety of medical conditions, from those that affect your digestion, heart, mind, weight or hormones, as well as supporting and treating patients, young and old with cancer, working alongside eminent Oncologists and Surgeons.
I also love seeing people who just want some inspiration as to how to eat well and deliciously to maximise their wellbeing and/or to improve their performance-having built up a strong reputation amongst Film Studios, actors, professional athletes and sports professionals for the past two decades.
I believe everyone is unique and I therefore treat you as an individual, taking into consideration all aspects of your health and lifestyle.
If you can't make it to my practices, you might want to arrange a skype or telephone consultation( see more info on the practice page) or look at my just-launched paperback book GOOD FOOD FOR LIFE or past articles on the Daily Mail, London Times and Observer websites for health and nutritional advice. More details of my other books can be found on the books section on this site.
MOTHERS DAY BLISS AND SOUFFLES TO FOLLOW
What a bizarre few days weather have befallen us; one minute we were having to drive incredibly carefully along with sleet- laden roads, the next we were basking in Spring sunshine, wearing sun hats and sun cream, whilst planting out vegetable seedlings into the raised beds. The magnolia is blossoming, as are the hyacinths and primroses, beside the curtains of daffodils laid across the lawns-utter springtime heaven.
It does feel slightly bizarre though sitting and eating out with not a shiver in sight, when the trees are relatively bare, with just buds and tiny leaves peeping through and as a result this weekend’s menus have changed to big pea and mint summery salads, alongside the spring roast lamb and new potatoes. Puddings have included roasted peaches, which although early in the season, looked too good to resist, needing only a dollop of vanilla infused yoghurt to make a scrumptious pudding on Mother’s day. Breakfast in bed was particularly welcome, especially as Maya had found the stewed ginger rhubarb to go with my usual cooked fruits and thick creamy yoghurt-what more could I desire?!
With so many eggs being laid by our seemingly happy in this warmer weather hens, I’d better get making some soufflé bases to freeze, as they are the easiest quick suppers to make, once the base is thawed out and egg whites are whisked. It takes just minutes to fold into whichever filling we desire; be this deep dark mushrooms or finely chopped spinach and smoked trout.
