RTE’s Operation Transformation! Cork Nutrition Supports Leader Deirdre Hosford!

It’s that time of year again – time to join RTE’s Operation Transformation and choose a leader to help you on your journey to health and wellness! Cork Nutrition Consultancy is delighted to support Cork’s own Deirdre Galvin-Hosford, who is origially from Bandon and now lives in Whitechurch Co. Cork with her husband Will, and their two young sons Jack & Cian.

Deirdre’s sister Imelda runs the Bread Basket in Bandon, a business which was set up jointly with their late father Finbarr, and which Imelda now runs. Before any of us knew that Deirdre would be leading the nation, I had been working with Imelda analysing the menu at the Bread Basket, to help her customers choose healthier options and being mindful of the calories. This Calorie posting initiative was launched at The Bread Basket’s 1st Anniversary on Friday 9th November 2012.

When Deirdre was chosen as a leader for RTE’s Operation Transformation we then decided to go one step further and we designed a new “Operation Transformation Menu” for The Bread Basket! This menu offers a wide variety of low calorie meal options suitable for most people on weight reducing diets who want to choose a healthy lunch to help them lose weight.

Have a look at the menu here!
