According to the latest reports, one of the ways we can save our planet and improve our health is to include more plant-based meals. This doesn’t mean everyone has to go vegan, but it couldn’t hurt to try to cut down a bit on meat and to increase some of the plant-based sources of protein that we have readily available to us. I use a lot of pulses/legumes like chickpeas, lentils, kidney beans, butter beans etc in my meals. Not only is this great for adding fibre and reducing the amount of meat the family eats but it’s great for meals on a budget. Tinned beans are absolutely fine and really cheap so using these to bulk up meals is ideal.

Commercially produced muesli bars can be loaded with sugar and saturated or even hydrogenated fats and often don’t contain any natural fruit. Homemade muesli bars are a healthy snack you can put in your kid’s lunchboxes each day. You can be sure of the ingredients and you can add your own touches. Have a go at this recipe.

A quick note from the clinic room

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Jan 22, 10:23 AM in and . No comments.

Every now and then, I see some common themes coming from my clinics.
This week, the main thing I am noticing is that the health of so many people is suffering because they are not taking time for themselves. Many people are working hard, with disrupted schedules and lifestyle and don’t take the time to nourish themselves.
