Nutrition - Enhancing the Everyday
I have been a chef for more than 30 years. I have created recipes for everything from souffles to banana cake. In my mid 30s I was diagnosed with asthma, in my 40s, with hypertension, which led to high cholesterol, being a food person, this led me to the kitchen, to try to cook my way healthy, and to university, to try to learn my way healthy. I am now 2/3rds of my way through a Bachelor of Nutrition degree and it has been the most rewarding thing I have ever done. Before I began I thought I had a pretty good knowledge about food and health and all of the stuff. Now I know that I know little, but I am learning, more every day. For me, this has evolved into the concept of using nutrition to enhance the everyday. Very few of us will ever eat a diet that is completely clean, and what is that diet anyway? What is good for one may not be good for another, the food pyramid or plate is a guide that works for some. Where nutrition is concerned, a one size fits all approach does not work for any of us. We must instead adopt a one size fits one approach. And you are the one. So come walk with me and we will explore the concept of Enhancing the Everyday, introducing nutrition into amazing food.
