About Lucinda Bevan


 

Lucinda Bevan of LoveFood, MarlboroughCatering was something she could do well while bringing up her 3 boys, and Lucinda ran her own catering company for a number of years. She always planned to do more than just cook for others, but it wasn’t until a member of her family fell ill that she decided to finally follow her heart.

“Tragically, a member of my family died at just 54, but before he died he said to me; ‘If there’s something you want to do, just DO IT, now – don’t wait’. So Lucinda trained as a Nutritional Therapist for 3 years, gaining her Diploma in 2005, and went on to set up her company Brain Nutrition with two colleagues.

“All of us were deeply interested in the effect food has on the brain, especially conditions like depression. If you’ve ever been there, you’ll know exactly what it’s like, and the right food really can help.” Lucinda works with Family Futures, an adoption support agency helping families manage their children’s behaviour; and for Kids’ Company, working with young girls in particular to improve their nutritional intake.

Lucinda moved to Marlborough, and started Love Food in 2010. “Lots of people just don’t know how to cook any more, but there are so many benefits to home cooking. It’s cheaper than buying ready meals for a start, and is so much more interesting and nutritious. With the right ingredients and recipes, you can produce delicious food that’s really good for you, and alleviate so many complaints and conditions. And it’s just so SATISFYING to cook good, tasty, nutritional, home-cooked food.

Healthy does NOT mean tasteless or boring! Eat well to get well, stay well, lose or maintain weight and increase energy.”

Lucinda also runs ‘Everyday Nutrition’ courses at Marlborough College Summer School in the summer
