As a family we transformed our children’s eczema, epilepsy and alopecia by changing our everyday family foods. We ate healthy fats, very little sugar, refined or processed foods, put simply we ate real foods with stunning health results.
The evidence clearly shows that the foods we eat have a huge impact on our health.
Through Leafie we now share our sugar-free, low carb and keto food knowledge and resources to help amazing individuals and families on their own food for health journey.

As an “older” personal trainer I can offer not just my expert technical knowledge but also more than 20 years of directly relevant experience.
As a PE teacher I’ve spent years motivating teenagers to get active. I’ve enjoyed working not just with the kids who are there at every practice but also with those who really don’t want to do it and use every excuse in the book!
I know that you can change your life, that it involves hard work and that it feels so good to do it!
Peter became increasingly curious about food provenance while working in London. In 2010, with his partner Nicola, they went the whole hog and bought a farm.
Today Peter keeps free range, rare breed, pigs and 100% grass fed sheep in Farndale on the North York Moors.
Pork, bacon and hogget is sold direct to customers at home or via small shops and makers to the public.
Wondering how? Surely they must be from a farming family? How does it work..? What should you look for when you’re buying meat?
Come along and find out more.
