Our Consultants Julian (Left), Karen (Right)

We are Registered Dietitians with years of professional experience between us. We were both trained in the UK, and we live and work in Barbados. In 2010 we founded Bajan Diet Designs Nutrition Consultancy where we provide a wide variety of nutritional services

We always encourage our clients to make good food choices as an important step towards the prevention and management of chronic conditions like diabetes, hypertension, cholesterol, obesity and certain cancers.

These chronic conditions are sometimes called “lifestyle diseases” since it is known that they can often be prevented with good eating (and exercise) habits. They tend to run in families and we both have first-hand experience of the challenges and difficulties that can be caused by diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol.

As wives and mothers, we have always tried to put our knowledge of nutrition into practice when preparing family meals. As dietitians, we talk with clients every day about the benefits of healthy eating and the need to make changes. And every day, our clients ask us the same question – “What can I eat?”

It’s as a result of all of these experiences that we were inspired to write our “What can I eat?” book series. These books contain practical suggestions and tasty recipes for healthy family meals and treats. It’s our way of answering that perennial question and, at the same time, trying to dispel the myth that healthy eating means bland and boring food for the rest of your life.
