About Me

Hello!

My name is Sarah, I am a dietitian with over 20 years of experience in the NHS, private practice and university lecturing. I live in Bangor, N.Ireland with my 3 kids.

I adore my job and helping people with their food and nutrition. I spent 15 years in London where I got tremendous experience working in a number of big London teaching hospitals with paediatric and adult patients e.g. Guy’s & St Thomas’, Chelsea & Westminster and St George’s. I’ve also worked in the community with children with special needs and areas of deprivation for Sure Start. Since moving back to N.I. 6 years ago, I’ve locumed at the Belfast Cancer Centre at the City Hospital, and the IBS clinic at the Ulster Hospital. I currently focus on my private practice seeing patients with gastrointestinal issues, disordered eating, hormonal issues etc.

This website started out in 2012 as a nutrition and recipe blog to share useful recipes and info that may be helpful.
