Recipe Hunting

September 8th, 2010
There are plenty of websites with recipes but many are special occasion food only!
Often, sites will give you an option to select a type of meal, different cuisines, particular ingredients and choice of diets such as low fat, low salt, gluten-free. Some food manufacturers’ websites have sections with recipes using their products and these can be very useful but beware of other ingredients or methods which may be high fat/salt etc.
You may still need to modify your recipe to adjust it to your specific needs. Ask your Dietitian about recipe modification techniques for your type of diet.
The websites below all have healthy options to choose from…..

Spring Cleaning Your Body!

September 8th, 2010

Now is the perfect time to do some Spring Cleaning – the HEALTH kind!

The sun is on its way and we will start to move outdoors more, shed a bit of clothing and eat differently. The body needs a shake up at this time to get ready for the new season of activities.  

Do you have a referral to follow up on that you have been putting off all Winter? Do you have some health issues that need addressing – Cholesterol, Blood Pressure, Diabetes Management, Weight or Waist Management, Irritable Bowel?  It’s a nice feeling to check off some of those tasks before the end of the year.

Make a plan and book in to see an Accredited Practising Dietitian for food related health issues.
