SOYA & PHYTOESTROGENS
What, Why and How Much?

Phytoestrogens are plant compounds that resemble human oestrogen and have weak oestrogenic effects in the body. The richest source of these compounds are found in soya foods and drinks and have been hailed as incredibly beneficial as well as demonised and feared.

 

We have put this book together to explain why including phytoestrogens can have health benefits and how to include them in your menu. It’s full of information and practical advice along with a selection of simple, nutritious recipes and links to great resources.

This book answers the big questions... What are phytoestrogens? Are they healthy and safe? And, maybe the biggest question of all: How do you cook tofu?

 

A digital PDF of the book is available for £7.50

RECIPES FOR RECOVERY:

Making life a little easier living with cancer

I collaborated with fellow Registered Nutritionist Lynn Burns to develop this book.  Through our work providing nutrition advice to individuals, we often suggest practical dietary solutions to make eating well easier for people. 

 

When going through cancer treatment, there may be days where you feel better than others and your appetite and taste preferences may change.  

We wanted to help make things a bit easier for individuals and families going through cancer and so have put together some useful dietary tips and a selection of nutritious dinners, mini-meals, snacks and drinks to inspire you and to give you some new ideas. 

We hope this book will raise funds for Maggie's Centres. These centres provide free practical and emotional support for people living with cancer.
