My name is Louise and I am a Registered Dietitian living in Devon, UK. I am a ‘foodie’ who is passionate about nutrition and health, and have just embarked upon my two biggest adventures yet – planning my wedding and starting a PhD!
I love cooking, eating and reading about food and nutrition. Since I qualified as a Dietitian in 2015, I have worked with patients at risk of malnutrition in community and acute hospital settings. This experience introduced me to dementia, and the significant effect dementia symptoms can have on an individuals nutritional status. My PhD is part of the NIHR Dementia Care Programme (part of PenCLARHC), and I will be developing an evidence-based complex health intervention that focuses on improving the nutritional status of patients who have dementia.
I want to use my blog to share my PhD journey, with a few recipes thrown in for good measure!
