“I’m dedicated to empowering women to be the best they can be throughout their menopause journey.” – Sabrina Zeif, The Menopause Chef

About Sabrina Zeif – Founder of the Nutritional & Lifestyle Blog The Menopause Chef

The Menopause Chef was started by me, Sabrina Zeif, an innovative chef with over 25 years’ experience working in pharmaceuticals and health education. Even with my background, menopause hit me like a ton of bricks! I wasn’t prepared at all and spent the first years floundering.

I felt far too young to be going through such a big life change. The recommended recipes and eating plans felt limiting, and there was a lack of community and professional support. Not to mention the mass of incredibly scary information on the web telling us just how much my life was going to fall apart!

Combined with the fact that society still thinks that we shouldn’t openly talk about menopause left me feeling confused and isolated. It then dawned on me that menopause is still a taboo.

I’ve now made it my mission to help other women by empowering them with the right information to understand that menopause is just a life transition that should be embraced.

Together we can do this!

How I can help you and how we can help each other!
