What is the Stacking Plan?

‘Your  diet plan hasn’t just given me a fish, it has taught me HOW to fish.’ Natasha
The Stacking Plan is a healthy-eating plan in which, instead of giving things up, you take things on. Each week you take up just one new healthy-eating habit, whilst carrying on with whatever you normally do the rest of the time. As the weeks go by, you ‘stack’ the good habits on top of each other.

You can do the Stacking Plan at Salnutrition on YouTube here and you can read about it and watch the vlogs on Psychologies Magazine’s exciting new 360me channel here

I find doing the Stacking Plan with people incredibly rewarding, since for most it is a very do-able and effective way of improving eating habits and attaining better health. You will also learn along the way why these foods can have such a good effect on you. Each good habit has the time and space to become habitual, so it quickly becomes effortless to practice. Another benefit I have found is that doing the Plan helps people to have a more balanced psychological relationship with food.

By the end you will have ten good habits, which means you will be incorporating everything you need for a basic optimal diet. And whether you are Paleo, vegan, 5:2, largely raw, or anything else, you will be able to finesse and tweak what you are eating until you have your perfect formula for you.

There are also tips for some key lifestyle habits which go hand-in-hand with healthy eating, such as relaxing and keeping moving. By the end, most ‘naughty’ habits should have fallen by the wayside, but when you do indulge, that’s ok.

The aim of the Plan is not just to get you on the right track to healthy eating and living, but also to educate you in bite-sized pieces so that you can empower yourself with the knowledge you need to make the right choices for you.

The ten weeks are: Breakfast Week, Fruit Week, Vegetables Week, Proteins Week, Carbohydrates Week, Fats Week, Digestion Week, Probiotics Week, Drinks Week, and No More S.A.D. (Standard American Diet). 

The key lifestyle factors are: Keep Moving, Relax, Make the Connections, and Have Purpose. You can do these in your own time but we can also discuss them if you wish.

Do The Stacking Plan

You can do The Stacking Plan either by buying the book (see ‘Books’) and doing it at home in your own time or you can join one of my courses:


You can do the Plan individually with me in person or by Skype. Sessions from consecutive weeks may be combined if necessary to accommodate holiday times or personal preference.

If you choose to do the Plan with me, you will also fill in a detailed questionnaire which will enable me to provide tailored nutrition advice, including supplements and laboratory tests if necessary, as and when appropriate.

Fee: £25 per 30-minute session.


Weekly sessions for small groups can take place at a venue of the group’s choice or by Skype. Sessions from consecutive weeks may be combined if necessary to accommodate holiday times or personal preference.

Fee: £15-£20 per person per week; price may vary slightly according to venue location and group size.


Weekly sessions are available to be held in small groups at workplaces in the Bristol area. The aim is not just to help individuals but to improve productivity and wellbeing at work in line with the Workplace Wellbeing Charter (www.bristol.gov.uk/wellbeingcharter).

Fee: £15-£20 per person per week; price may vary slightly according to venue location and group size.

Since it's so hot, it's a good time to eat as much of this riDICulously delicious raspberry ripple ice cream as possible. I had to eat two bowls full just now as it kept melting whilst I took the photo. It's easy and fun to make - it's best if you have an ice cream maker (you can get a simple one for about £40).

INGREDIENTS: cashews, soya milk, coconut oil or manna, 1 lemon, vanilla, sea salt, maple syrup/agave syrup, 1 tin creamy coconut milk, 1 small tin coconut cream (optional), berries, cornflour.

- soak 1 cup cashews for a minimum of 2 hours (overnight is good)
- bring to a simmer 1/2 cup soya milk + 1 tin coconut milk + 2 tbsp coconut cream (optional - if your coconut milk is really creamy you may not need it) + a squirt or two of agave/maple syrup
- take a little out and mix it with 1 level tbsp corn flour to a paste, add it back, and simmer gently for 5 mins
- put the soaked cashews in a nutribullet or vitamix type blender with the rest of the ingredients + 2 tbsp coconut oil or coconut manna + the juice of 1 lemon + a pinch of salt + 1/2 tsp vanilla and blend until smooth. Cool for an hour.
- put it an ice cream maker and churn for 20-25 minutes
- just before the end add raspberries or any other berries - you can squash them up with a fork and add a squirt of agave or maple syrup if you want it sweeter.

You can get the full recipe (this is a simpler version) from Health Nut Nutrition's blog - it's called 'strawberry cheesecake icecream with a graham cracker crumble'.
