MENOPAUSE FACTS

• Women spend more time in their menopause years than in their reproductive years! 

• The average age of Menopause is aged 51 in UK & Ireland, but most women start experiencing noticeable symptoms from age 45 onwards

• The menopause occurs after your periods stop – You are officially post-menopausal if you have not had a period for 12 months

• When your ovaries stop producing eggs, your oestrogen levels fall drastically

• However, you can experience symptoms up to five years beforehand, as the oestrogen gradually declines. This is known as Perimenopause..

• 75% of women experience menopausal symptoms

• 25% of women experience severe symptoms that negatively effect their family & work lives

I recently attended a food prep workshop with Rachel. It has help me to totally change my diet. I was struggling to... make positive changes to my diet as like most people I am very busy and on the road running here and there and takeaway was an easy option. Now I have so much food prep in advance that meals are quick and easy with little or no waste. It was the missing key for me. I can highly recommend this workshop, you will learn so much and have an enjoyable morning in a fabulous atmosphere with great company. I have signed up for Rachel's sourdough bread making workshop in Dec and can't wait.read more

I have completed 2 courses at Rachels-Meal prep 101 and just today I attended her Sourdough class.Both were a... revelation! I had struggled to cultivate my own starter and was about to give up.Rachel ,however,changed all that by providing a starter and fool proof instructions leading to a very successful loaf. It’s also great to have a hands on class where you learn by doing.I also enjoyed a lovely lunch and great conversation and highly recommend the entire experience.Looking forward to the next one.read more

I recently attended Rachael’s summer salads workshop. It was a small group, which was very welcoming & friendly... atmosphere in Rachael’s home. We got to taste some delicious salads & see how to prepare them. Rachael’s knowledge on the nutritional value of different ingredients & “science”of foods, I found so interesting & left me wanting to know more. Racheal also gave us tips of food storage and preparation. I Look forward to attending the mood food workshop soon.read more

Last weekend my daughter and I went on Rachel's Yoga & Nutrition retreat in The Lodge at Kellys in Rosslare. It was an... amazing experience, surpassing my expectations. We came away feeling totally relaxed yet rejuvenated! The Lodge was perfect because although we had easy access to the facilities at Kelly's Hotel, we were away from the hustle and bustle of the hotel. Eileen Rowe helped us burn off some calories with yoga, beach walking and exercises, hula hooping, aqua aerobics in the pool AND we even had a dip in the sea (with a quick dash back to the hot tub!) Exhilarating!! The group was small and everyone mixed easily and conversation flowed freely while we dined on Rachel's delicious food and enjoyed some food demos (recipes provided ). Sadly, it was all over too soon and we said our goodbyes on Sunday lunchtime. I would highly recommend this retreat and can't wait to hear when the next one is!read more

The cooking to lower your cholesterol workshoo yesterday was brilliant. Really informative and interesting Such... flavoursome food that took little effort to make was a revelation. Uncovering a lot of the myths that we take for granted was certainly an eye opener. Also it was great to share personal experiences with like minded people. Rachel was extremely helpful and made a wet afternoon extremely enjoyable !read more

I had a terrific time at Rachel's workshop where we learnt how to make apple cider vinegar, coconut yogurt, nut milks... and more. I really liked the format: the group was small enough that there was plenty of time for all the great questions and observations that came up over the course of the workshop. Rachel is very clear, knowledgeable, warm and so effusive about fermentation. I highly recommend the sessions.read more

Rachel's courses are really enjoyable and informative. The courses were just the right length to pass on useful... information, but not take up our whole weekend. Best of all, we left with the fruits of our labour. Highly recommend!read more
