Eat This: Goals, Intentions and Habits

Doesn’t the new year feel like it brings a clean slate and a reset to all that has happened in the past? You’ve seen the tag lines… New Year, New YOU, right? Most people that I’ve talked to feel like the clock striking midnight on Jan 1st does feel like a reset of sorts.

Eat This: Top 5 Episodes

Can you believe that this is the 50th episode of EAT THIS with Lianne? I sure can’t.  From where we started about 18 months ago, this podcast has evolved, pivoted and dare I say, grown over the past year and I guess the pivot is really to do with the crazy times that we’ve been living in for the nine months. Out of the fifty past episodes, twelve were recorded in person in the NewsTalk1010 […]

Eat This: For the Love of Chocolate

Chocolate is called the “Food of the Gods”, which could be interpreted in about 100 ways, with all schools of thoughts ending up thinking that chocolate is good for you. But then there’s the “don’t have too much” narrative that really dominates conversations about chocolate. The taunt of marketing that says “bet you can’t just have one”… Wait maybe that’s for chips. Whoops, I’ve just swiped another’s tagline, but you get what I mean, right? […]

Eat This: Plant-Based Milks

Have you noticed how much the dairy aisle has changed? Gone are the days of the bags and cartons of only dairy milk, now goat milk is a staple as well as an abundance of milk that comes from plants. How can that be? Isn’t the most nutritious white stuff supposed to come from a cow or some other animal? I mean we even have buffalo milk cheese for goodness sake. That’s got to have […]

Eat This: Grocery Shopping Habits

Grocery shopping isn’t what it once was. You know, that stop and shop-on-the fly, making a pit stop on your way home from work to get dinner fixings for that night’s meal. Well that changed because of COVID in ways that we could never have imagined. First, the fear of going to the grocery store, being told to stay at home and only go out when necessary. Long wait times for the new online shopping, […]

Eat This: Superfoods

Do you think that there is one food that does it all? You know, all the things that us nutritionists talk about… gives energy, vitamins, minerals, fibre, antioxidants, phytonutrients, polyphenols, fats, prebiotics, probiotics, it will prevent disease, pain, and make you impervious to viruses?

Eat This: Genetic Tests for Health and Epigenetics

Our genes carry the information that determines our traits, those features or characteristics that are passed on to us from our biological parents. Our genes drive our health, even influence the food that you prefer to eat, and carry information that makes you who you are and what you look like. For instance, do you have freckles like my kids? Yep, my genes showed up in my girls with freckles – my youngest even has […]
