Eat This: Making clean and healthy drinks

What is in your glass, your cup or mug is under more scrutiny of late. Headlines, reports, and guidelines could instigate a change in your liquid consumption behaviour, if you feel inclined – I guess it would depend on what it is and how much it affects your life. A recent headline I came across asked if I’d like “Some plastics with your tea?” It was from a reputable source, in a report from McGill […]

Eat This: Immunity and reducing inflammation

Sneezes, coughs, droopy and tired looking eyes are all signs that some sort of infection has taken hold of your body. It doesn’t feel good, it slows you down, makes you stop when you don’t want to – or take medicines so you can keep going, but there’s no denying it, being sick sucks. What is it about the couch, blanket, comfort food and the TV remote that we gravitate towards, as opposed to doing […]

Eat This: Eye Health

Eighty percent of what we learn comes through our eyes and what we see. Locking eyes with another, whether in person, from a distance or on a screen creates the human connection that we all thrive on. Vision is a critical sense, and for us lucky enough to have it, keeping it for as long as possible is a worthwhile health effort. Much of what I talk about on EAT THIS with Lianne is for […]

Eat This: Immunity 2.0

A listener’s question came in via email from Janice and asked “I’m hearing of colds going around.

I say, let’s help her out shall we?  Colds and flu season is around the corner and now, more than ever it’s important to be as proactive as possible in boosting our immunity to […]

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 […]

Eat This: Cheat Days

Have you ever signed yourself up for a CHEAT DAY? Or do you call it a treat day? Maybe your version is a cheat night, the week while you’re on holiday, or the month after you’ve done a cleanse or been on a restricted diet? It happens. There are varying degrees of discipline to any exercise or way of eating, and sometimes it’s easy to be super focused, and then that novelty wears off, but […]

Eat This: Lunch Rehab

Lunch, lunch, lunch! That dreaded mid-day meal that disrupts the flow of work, play and focus. I guess it can also be a welcome break, but then you’ve gotta make it. Sometimes lunch doesn’t happen, or can be a half-hearted attempt at nourishment and while gone are the days of stopping by a hot dog stand as you head to your next meeting, or choosing what takes your fancy as you sit down to a […]

Eat This: Snack Rehab

These days, something as simple as making snacks can be so exhausting. Endless Googling for ideas, endless amounts of options, but not enough energy in the day to make any of it happen. Luckily for you, I’m the nutritionist who has your back because I’m fully on the pro-snack train… and in case you haven’t noticed, I have lots of information to share.  My goal for this episode is to undo your previous ideas of […]
