Course description

Yes! You can eat an exciting, nutrient packed, healthy, tasty and well rounded diet through just plants alone.

In this course I'll show you how easy it can be to start enjoying a healthy vegetarian or vegan lifestyle. I've poured the knowledge from thousands of hours of professional training, hundreds of client consultations and personal experience (read about my past cheese on toast veggie diet below) into this life-changing online course.

How to be a Healthy Vegetarian or Vegan includes 10 easy-to-follow video modules, audio recordings for listening on the go, downloadable, printable pdf's and over 30 delicious recipes you can visit again and again for life.

 Who is this course for?

“I eat a plant based diet… so that makes make automatically healthy, right?”


  • If you're a committed vegetarian or vegan and you're stuck in a food rut, cooking the same meals over and over again, this course is for you.
  • If you've been a vegetarian or vegan for a while but you're still not feeling as healthy and energy-filled as you expected, your diet might be lacking in certain nutrients. This courses is for you. 
  • If you're a mum who feels that your family eats far too much meat, fish or dairy, and you want to know how to use more plants in your diet, without your kids or hubby turning their noses up, this course is for you. 
  • If your child or partner has decided they want to be vegetarian or vegan, and you don’t have a clue where to start in supporting them, this course is for you.
  • If you're at the start of a vegetarian or vegan journey and want to make sure you don’t miss any key nutrients...
  • If you're looking to incorporate more plant based foods into your diet but aren’t quite ready to make the full leap to being a veggie or vegan...

If the answer is yes to any or many of the above, then I have made this course for you.

It’s clear from research that there can be some really great health benefits to following a plant-based diet. However, the choices you make and what you put on your plate is crucial. You need to do your research to make sure you give your body all the nutrients it needs. 

It’s not enough to simply cut out the meat, fish, eggs, or dairy and hope for the best. In fact, if you don’t replace the nutrients in those foods with suitable plant alternatives, you could be putting your health at risk.

"In my clinic I often see vegans and vegetarians who don't plan their diet properly; suffering from health conditions such as: anaemia, poor hair quality, lack of energy, difficulty sleeping and very often gut problems. This doesn't have to be your destiny. Let me show you how" ~ Catherine Jeans.

Why choose this course?

There’s so much information out there about how to follow a non-meat diet, and it can be confusing at times to know which path to follow.

I’m Catherine Jeans and I’m proud to be one of the UK's leading Nutritional Therapists, having worked with 1,000s of clients. Many of these people are vegetarians or vegans – and what I see in my clinic is that the wrong type of plant based diet can lead to serious health implications. 

You CAN eat well on a plant based diet, but you need some know-how to get you started. 

"I just want to say thank you for all your help, I would not be where I am today without it, would recommend you to anybody without you I would not be on the path to recovery. Thanks again. Cheryl Tunmore

I was a vegetarian with serious health problems

Unfortunately, I was a “cheese on toast” vegetarian for over 10 years (are you one of those?) and it left me with serious gut issues in my early 20's, on steroids and putting on weight fast.  Luckily I don’t have an inflammatory bowel condition any more, and I follow a diet that includes a lot of plant based food, but in a much healthier way. 

How to be a Healthy Vegetarian or Vegan empowers you to take your knowledge of plant based nutrition beyond ‘cheese on toast’ and ‘meat alternatives’,’ showing you that with a little planning, knowledge and commitment, you can create a very healthy and exciting diet focused around plant foods.

"Catherine has a world of knowledge and experience at her finger tips and relays this in a way that is easy to understand and follow. At a time where changes to diet and lifestyle could be very overwhelming...Catherine gives suggestions that are realistic and attainable"~Rebecca Cooper, Australia

I'm Catherine, Nutritional Therapist, mother-of-two and passionate healthy eating advocate!

I've worked with over a thousand clients on a one to one basis, and seen hundreds more at my workshops and group programmes. I love teaching people that healthy eating doesn't have to be a sacrifice... that you can eat well, feel great and thoroughly enjoy your food!

I'm so proud to be one of the UK's most successful Nutritional Therapists, and I'm regularly called upon by the local and national press to give advice on family nutrition and healthy eating. I recently joined up with the Telegraph, contributing to a series of articles on healthy eating in the run up to the Olympics and provide nutritional advice, workshops and support for a variety of national organisations and charities.

I am a fully trained and experienced Nutritional Therapist, graduating from the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London. I also hold professional certificates in NLP, hypnotherapy and mindfulness based Lifecoaching. I am a member of The British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy and The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, the UK regulator for complementary health care practitioners.

"Before I saw Catherine, I felt constantly tired and was struggling to get on with everyday life. I hadn’t realised that what I was eating was making such a huge impact on the way I was feeling."

Since opening my practice in Norfolk, hundreds of clients - young and old - have visited me for nutritional support from across the UK and the world. My reputation for quality care, effective professional advice and nurturing support has grown and grown, which has meant that I have had to expand in recent times to offer online clinics to help guide clients wherever they are in the world. I am so pleased to be able to extend my reach to even more people, by offering my new online programmes - which will be expanded over the coming months to include other areas, such as a focus on Family Nutrition and How to be a Healthy Vegetarian or Vegan.

Through my online and Norfolk based clinic, I work with a wide variety of health conditions and have a specialist interest in the following areas:

  • Family and Children's Health
  • Weight Loss and Bariatric Surgery
  • Hormonal conditions such as thyroid and adrenal health
  • Digestive Disorders, particularly IBS, coeliac disease and inflammatory bowel disease
  • Dietary support for cancer
  • Pre-conceptual care, fertility, pregnancy and post-natal recovery
  • Autoimmune conditions

"Before meeting Catherine I dreaded meals because of the pain and discomfort which usually followed. Since working with Catherine my life has changed and I look forward to my meals knowing what I can eat and what I need to avoid. Catherine is a delightful lady with a wealth of knowledge on nutritional needs to share with her clients which she gives with empathy and kindness."
