Feed Your head

You know what they say: ‘Take care of your body, it’s the only place where you have to live’.

We love this quote and would add — take care of your mind, too.

We believe that our minds have so much power, they hold the key to achieving our goals. But to access this power we need to tap into what makes our minds tick and, in a sense, become its master. This is where a plant-powered, health-driven lifestyle comes to play…

You will have access to the course content for 12 months from date of purchase, you can complete this course at any point within this timeframe, so you don’t need to follow along live.
Yes, this it is fine.  Our Courses are self-led. This means that you can do it when it suits you and you have 12 weeks to complete it.
We generally advise anyone going to the effort of doing this course to eliminate alcohol but it’s not the be all and end all. If alcohol makes you eat more veg then the odd glass of Rioja is fine by us! Just be mindful of the foods you’re craving the day after alcohol intake. Keep them whole-food and plant-based, and you’ll be grand. Two exceptions are rum and dessert wines. These are both high in FODMAPs, so best avoided during the course.

There is a companion workbook which goes along with the challenge to help you answer questions and keep you on track.

Gluten containing foods present on The Happy Mind Challenge can be replaced with gluten-free options or omitted completely.


We will do our best to make this experience fun, engaging, and impactful. We hope that you enjoy learning from us and the team of experts that we work with. Please remember that our courses are purely educational and designed for adults who have good general health. Taking part is designed to be a supportive and positive experience, but doing a course is no substitute for seeing your own family doctor or specialist. If you have any ongoing health problems or have symptoms that are worrying you, then please make an appointment to talk with your GP for individual medical advice. This is incredibly important.

As you might expect, food plays a big part in this journey. The meal plans and recipes that we use on all of our courses are designed to be healthy, lower in fat, and higher in fibre. If you are concerned that this type of eating isn’t suitable for you, then please talk to your own doctor or specialist before you make any changes.  We are here to support you every step of the way, remember, take it one day at a time.  Be kind to yourself, there really is no such thing as perfection.

Learn how to feel at home within your own mind & body — and journey through every day with ease.

Join The Happy Mind Challenge with Dave, Steve & Gerry to strengthen your mind & body through nutrition, movement & mindfulness.
