Like everybody aiming for optimal digestive and overall health, those eating a plant-based diet do need to ensure that they are getting a few key nutrients and may even need to take some supplements

To ensure that you get the maximum benefit from your healthy diet, we do recommend that you supplemental vitamin B12 and vitamin D.You may choose to purchase individual supplements, but in our opinion, the easiest way to achieve this by far is by taking a supplement called “VEG-1”. VEG-1 is a single daily pill which contains the recommended doses of vitamin b12, vitamin D, iodine and other important nutrients. It is available with global delivery from

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

We generally advise anyone going to the effort of doing our courses, tries 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!

If you do drink alcohol during the 4 weeks, make sure to note it in your skin diary, so you can see if/how it affects your skin.

Caffeine is great for sharpening your focus and helping you with certain daily tasks that might need your sustained concentration. So, moderate caffeine intake is absolutely fine.

Do keep in mind that excess caffeine can dehydrate the skin. Keep track of how much caffeine you are drinking in your skin diary and notice how it affects your skin.

We recommend you limit your caffeine intake on our courses to either 1-2 cups of coffee per day OR 2-3 cups of breakfast or green tea per day, changing all other teas to herbal tea or warm water. Use your favourite non-dairy milk as needed.

The cooking, depending on what meal plan you choose and how many you are cooking for, can take anything from 3 hours for the whole week, or an hour or so every day. The course notes can be accessed at whatever time suits you and it is a self-led course, so you do not need to follow along live.
