Eat This: Your genes and testing

Lymphoma, breast cancer, endometrial cancer, colon cancer, stroke, heart attack, high cholesterol, arthritis, depression, macular degeneration, tremors, headaches and migraines are just some of the health conditions in my gene pool. My DNA has been tagged with these health trajectories. The only area of health that isn’t in here is diabetes and dementia, that I know of anyway. Does this mean that I’m destined to be hit with any of these diseases and health issues? […]

Eat This: The worst ingredients

Reading the label of any packaged food can look like it needs a chemistry degree. I’d hazard a guess that if you do turn over the box or crunchy plastic bag of what you’re wanting to know more about, and see sodium benzoate, or carrageenan or even artificial flavouring tartrazine not knowing exactly what it means doesn’t lead to you putting it back on the shelf … or does it?

And yes, it’s the end of October, but whenever you are listening to this episode, my nutritionist […]

Eat This: Why bother with breakfast?

The alarm clock goes off, you get up, out of bed and what unfolds next? Shower, workout, meditation, hot water and lemon, coffee is a no brainer for most, then I’m sure checking your phone for updates falls in there somewhere, but then what about breakfast? You’ve had it ingrained in us that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and yet there are people who don’t eat breakfast ever, or they don’t […]
