Eating Well for Menopause
‘Eating Well for Menopause’ is a book to help women navigate the myths and truths of eating well through menopause.
It summarises the biology of menopause, its symptoms and effects on women’s bodies. The book explores how changes in diet can support you through the menopause, with a selection of tasty, simple recipes to help.
The authors are Dr Laura Wyness and Lynn Burns, two Registered Nutritionists with the Association for Nutrition.
A digital PDF of the book is available to buy in either pounds or euros.
Eating Well for Menopause – online course
With over 3 hours of content that can be completed at your own pace over the course of a year, this online course expands on the content of the Eating Well for Menopause booklet.
With videos, surveys, resources to download and recipes, Lynn and Laura talk you through many aspects of menopause, how diet can help to manage symptoms and improve health as well as busting a few myths along the way.
It is not intended to replace one to one conversations with health professionals nor is it a suggestion to replace HRT with lifestyle change – simply a range of things to add to the toolkit to help you navigate living healthily through menopause and beyond.

Soya & Phytoestrogens
Phytoestrogens are plant compounds that have weak oestrogenic effects in the body and can have a number of benefits on health and well being. The richest source of these is in soya products but this is a food many people are not so familiar with.
We have put this book together to explain the health benefits of soya products 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?

RECIPES FOR RECOVERY:
Making life a little easier living with cancer
Many cancer patients have no specific dietary needs and are advised to eat a healthy, balanced diet but cancer treatment can make that simple advice hard. Appetite and taste preferences can change and some days, particularly soon after treatment, fatigue and feeling unwell can make eating a challenge.
We wanted to help make things a bit easier for individuals going through cancer and support their families . This booklet contains some useful dietary tips and a selection of nutritious dinners, mini-meals, snacks and drinks to help make eating well easier in spite of the challenges cancer throws their way.
