FIONA’S PHILOSOPHY is ‘Nutrition is the grass roots of good health’
There are so many misconceptions about what healthy eating really is, our notion of healthy eating is getting lost in a mound of quinoa flakes, gluten free raw food paleo bars and activated almond milk. We are eating less fat and more supposedly “healthy” food than we ever have, yet the fat are getting fatter and the sick are getting sicker.
We are becoming nutritionally deficient due to farming methods, poor soil quality, food processing, digestive issues and poor “healthy” food choices. Before long we can start to develop chronic deficiencies which can eventuate into health problems.
Fiona’s belief is that most health conditions can be traced back to a nutritional deficiency. Eating a diet that is based on nutrient rich wholefoods, high in plant foods and low in processed foods and free from toxic chemicals allows our bodies the necessary nutrients we need for health and longevity.
Nutrient Boosting Guidelines:
Variety. Eat a variety of different foods every day to ensure you are getting enough nutrients. If you are having the same breakfast, lunch or dinner every day you are putting yourself at risk of not allowing your body the necessary nutrients that it needs.
Moderation. A little bit of everything and not too much of any one thing.
Portion Control. As a nation we eat too much, our portion sizes are out of control and we have forgotten what a real portion size is. I have included free portion size fact sheets to download to help guide you.
Eat wholefoods. Choose foods that are close to how you would find them in nature. The more refined or processed a food, even a healthy food, the less beneficial it is for our bodies.
Ditch the diet food. Avoid foods that are marketed as low fat. They tend to be highly processed, full of toxic chemicals and high in sugar to replace the taste loss from the removing the fat.
Cut down on refined carbohydrates such as white bread, pasta, noodles, chips, alcohol. These cause blood sugar spikes and promote accelerated ageing and disease within the body. They also promote obesity when eaten in excess.
Avoid diet fads, calorie counting and extreme diet rules and regulations.
Choose foods based on their nutrient content rather than their calorie content.
