I started The Masterplan last week and I am absolutely loving it!! I’ve already lost 2lb and an inch from my waist which is incredible but most of all I’m really enjoying experiencing loads of new food. I never really bothered too much before because life gets in the way so I would eat the same things all the time – things which I actually thought were quite healthy but wow, if this is healthy, bring it on !! I have never tried so many different foods before and I thought I had a fairly good diet! I’m also finding ways to slip gut friendly food into the family’s meals too, it’s great, I am loving the creativity of it all! It’s time for me now. Thanks Jane!
Are you a health-conscious, busy person?
When you’re juggling demands, responsibilities, work, family, and more, and that’s even before you’ve thought about the most basic self care, thinking about food is probably last on your list!
I’m Jane, The Functional Foodie, and I’m passionate about helping people stay well in busy lives. I’ve done more than train professionally, I’ve been through my own health crises triggered by prolonged, severe stress, recovered using the power of nutrition and real food, then gone on to be commissioned by the NHS and win a UK Enterprise award for innovation in nutrition as a result of that passion to develop solutions for real food and real health in real life!
Here you’ll find top to toe solutions for your whole body and mind health.
I’m here to help you achieve your healthiest, happiest selves!

What people say...
I joined because as I have grown older my weight has gradually increased and nothing I seemed to do stopped the upward spiral of weight gain. It’s good to learn about foods and nutrition that will support me in mid life. The new recipes and food combinations are certainly helping to combat these things and I generally feel less stressed. The next step is to try and fit in more exercise! I love the lovely ladies in the group. I find it beneficial to be in an environment that is not based on how much weight you’ve lost but to learn about that which makes you more healthy – the weight loss becomes a secondary goal to a healthier diet.
I wanted to be educated on the correct way to reduce my excess weight and to eat healthily for life. I have never wanted to eat processed food with added nasties. It is a breath of fresh air to learn about all the nutrients that we require and how we should put them together for the most beneficial effect.
I’ve noticed many benefits since starting the healthy eating plan. I no longer have restless legs, and my gut is tolerating all kinds of fibre I wouldn’t have attempted to include before. Meeting you, Jane, has been a nutritional revelation, I’ve learnt more from you in 3 months than what 35 years of consultations with medics, surgeons and dieticians has taught me! There have been dramatic positive changes in my body and health.Thank you so much!
I just feel as if I am really looking after my body now and love the new foods and recipes. I find for the first time in my life I actually enjoy shopping and cooking ! I do feel as if it is making a difference to the way I feel and after cancer invading my body. I’ve come to realise that good things come from bad experiences, otherwise I wouldn’t have met Jane.
Who am I, and how can I help?
As a clinical nutritionist, nutritional therapist and a qualified teacher, with a strong background of study in functional medicine and naturopathy to add to my professional nutrition training, my lifelong love of good food and cooking aligned all these elements to create a natural evolution into culinary medicine with a clinical foundation and a delicious edge!
Food is so many things, but the result is the same – our physical, mental, and to a large extent, emotional health depend on what, how and why we eat. The psychology of eating is as important as where we get our food, and how we prepare it.
If you’re experiencing signs or symptoms that you’re not happy with, that seem to be getting worse, your body (or your brain!) are talking to you. Many that I see are actively undernourished, even though they think they eat healthily.
Self diagnosing doesn’t help. Confusing and contradictory ‘advice’ from unqualified sources can lead you down all sorts of dead ends, because what is really needed is qualified information and advice, and in some cases, a trusted, professional set of eyes. Whether it’s learning, cooking inspiration, quality supplements or 1-2-1 support, it’s all here!
