The Jay Halford Plant-based Food and Juice Programme is a 5 day program that is made up daily for collection or delivery and runs on a Monday-Friday Basis.
Basically like having your own private healthy chef for the week with know worries of what to cook and when to eat. All lovingly prepared and labelled for you each morning so you know exactly when and what to eat.
What’s Involved in the Programme…
We will prepare three unique and delicious meals each day, which will be in addition to 1 x 500ml juice and 1 x 500ml smoothie, PLUS you will also get a little extra fiery ginger shot, to give that little wake up and replace your morning caffeine fix. (pick ups only)
All the days food will be made fresh each morning and ready for you by 8am to collect from us at NR Social, or can be organised to be delivered straight to your door.
My main goal with the 5 day plant-based program is to set you up with, 5 days of the healthiest, most nutrient dense eating that you have possible ever experienced. I want to do this so you can learn and experience the best that your body can feel and come away from the program wanting to carry on the good habits and the lifestyle change.
And here’s what one of our lovely customers has to say who has now done the plant-based program with us multiple times…
“Initially I thought the price was quite full – but having experienced the quality, taste and quantity – I think it is great value for money.
I haven’t been hungry – no sugar highs or lows – and have been running and cycling with no drops in energy.
I think I may even have lost a few pounds.
I can confess to one foray into the chocolate hobnobs on day 3, but for a chocolate fiend this was a pretty minor diversion.
Anyway – just a quick thanks!”
-Nick Carter, Cheltenham.

My name’s Jay Halford and I’m on a mission; a mission to re-educate people into realising how easy it is to make the transition into feeding their body what is so desperately craves.
My background as a chef and in catering has meant that for me, taste always comes first. I believe that you should recognise every ingredient that is used in a recipe; how they are best combined to create the ultimate taste.
Where did my journey begin? Well, my love of food began at the age of 13; I worked in a busy Italian restaurant, washing pots for what can only be described as a nutcase of a chef with a huge passion for food. It was here that I decided that upon leaving school I would complete an apprenticeship – I did and then got straight into it. I started work at Lords of the Manor, A Michelin Star restaurant close to my home in Cheltenham. There, I met a great friend, Mark; his work ethic was impressive, he showed me his dedication to food and the hard work it entailed.
I won’t lie, after two years of learning everything involved, the long hours and stress became too much. I was beginning to lose my love of being a chef – not of food though, nothing could dispel that. This was a life-changing time as it prompted me to travel the world. You can imagine the variety of foods, juicing and techniques I was exposed to – this just fuelled my love of food even further.
I realised I could still do what I loved doing but in the way that I wanted to do it. It is now a massively growing trend, with many more people now consciously thinking about their health and what they are putting into their bodies.
Returning to Cheltenham, I knew it was time to incorporate my new way of thinking into my life. A personal trainer friend of mine introduced me to raw food and clean living; I was hooked. Adopting juicing and raw foods into my life, it had a profound effect and I wanted to share this with the world. This is when ‘The Core in Cheltenham’ was created.
I continue to run the Core in Cheltenham for 4 years whilst building my personnel brand and getting myself everywhere and anywhere that would have me doing pop up restaurants and workshops. I now for the past 3 years and been very focused on retreats and consultancy catering for groups of health and wellness warriors and helping other businesses to transition to healthier food options.
I have been lucky enough to travel all over the world doing this and now I am super excited to be bring my food back to Cheltenham and host the event at the new NR Social space.
