About Penny 


Penelope Barnett

I was first introduced to Nutritional Therapy by my mother, who trained in the early 1990’s under Dr Lawrence Plaskett, after looking into nutrition to help ailments within our family -mainly for me who was diagnosed with Henoch-Schönlein purpura (an auto-immune disease of the blood) at the age of 4 years old.

My mother brought home her new-found knowledge to her sceptical family, and after cutting out dairy and excluding wheat where possible my ‘baby pot belly’ at the age of 10 went, and my overall wellness greatly improved.

Years later when studying film and television at university I re-visited this inherited wisdom when needing to address my health once again; chronic facial acne. My interest of natural healing came to the forefront of my work and interests and has continued to stay there. This knowledge is now embedded in my lifestyle and I enjoy continuing my learning into natural healing systems including; Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine and European herbal traditions.

After working in health & wellbeing for 12 years and having qualified as a Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist with Nutritional Healing Foundation, I have learnt so much that has empowered me to combat health issues of my own but also my friends, family and clients.

I have also had training from supplement companies: Pukka Herbs, Viridian, Optibac Probiotics, Cytoplan, A.VogelBiocareBional and Pascoe Basentabs pH balance.

As well as skincare training from Dr Haushchka and Sukin Skincare -who I am the South West UK Representative for.

I am now a mother to a beautiful two year old girl, happily married and live and work in the foodie’s dream city of Bristol, UK. This website, along with my Instagram account, are my online outlets for articles, recipes and (mostly) food-related pictures.
