Do you really know if you are eating well?Are you getting enough vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, fibre, fats, carbohydrates and protein to suit your health and lifestyle? What steps can you take to reach your health and nutritional requirements?
Has the level of nutrients in food crops changed?An article “Best Before” published in New Scientist, 17 October 2015, discusses the impact of production and processing of food crops on their nutritional value. Research has proven that there has been a reduction in the amount of vitamins and minerals in many fresh produce crops. One example given was a broccoli variety, Waltham 29, which now contains 18% less iron, 30% less magnesium and 28% less zinc than it did when first introduced in 1950. Many people know the difference in flavour from freshly picked fruit and vegetables compared to the picked unripe, cold storage, artificially ripened produce.
The amount of flavour in fresh food provides a clue to the amount of nutrients and antioxidants present.Many meat products are from animals that have been grain fed and reared indoors. This not only impacts the flavour but also the nutritional value. Have you ever noticed the difference in flavour and tenderness of pasture fed meat? If so, you would understand the flavour that oozes with nutrition.
How can you find out if you are getting enough nutrition from your diet?A dietary analysis can provide a reality check to the amount of nutrition that you’re really getting from your food. It provides a simple breakdown of your diet and provides a list of recommendations on how to improve your nutritional intake. Better nutrition = better health. You will get sent a three day diet diary to complete, making sure that you keep to your regular eating patterns. You then send this diet diary back and a personalised report will be generated with individual recommendations.
