I am an Anglo Swedish nutritional therapist, cook, businesswoman and lifestyle expert.
I started my career as one of the founder members of The Futon Company London, at the age of 18, and worked in retail until 2004.
My international adventures, by way of Chicago and Moscow, have included everything from running my own furniture shop in Paris to renovating a disused Swedish cinema and turning it into a living space.
In 2004 I decided to take a break from my retail career and, influenced by my Swedish grandmother’s and mother’s love of cooking and nutrition, I decided to go to university to study nutritional therapy.
I graduated in 2008 and went on to practice at a private clinic as a nutritional therapist where I specialised in meal planning for individuals and families, health coaching and nutrition education, both privately and for the corporate sector. I also completed extensive additional training in children’s nutrition, obesity management and cardiovascular disease.
After years of working with clients struggling to find inspiration and time to feed their family balanced, healthy meals, I realised that a recipe bag service could be the answer. So I brought the phenomenally successful Swedish enterprise Linas Matkasse to the UK in 2012. After 18 months of working as the Director of Menu Planning and Nutrition for Jessica’s Recipe Bag I have gone on to set up Jessica’s Kitchen.
Jessica’s Kitchen provides resources and information you need to create delicious healthy inspiring meals. The focus is on mid week suppers. There are recipes, cooking tips, meal planning and nutrition information.
My recipes regularly feature in a wide range of national newspapers and magazines including Optimum Health Nutrition, Hello Magazine, BBC Good Food, Olive, Vegetarian Magazine and Zest. I have also appeared on Radio London as guest expert on children’s nutrition. I have also contributed to the Great British Spelt Recipe Book which will be launched later this year on behalf of Sharpham Park and Bowel Cancer UK.
In addition to running Jessica’s Kitchen I am still a practicing nutritional therapist. Clients come to see me to seek help for a variety of health problems including, digestive disorders, heart disease, weight management and chronic fatigue. I also specialise in children’s nutrition and health coaching. It is my aim to show you how good nutrition can have a positive effect on how you feel and to help you to understand the relationship between what you eat and your health.
I am a member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT), The Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council and The Association for the Study of Obesity.
