🥗Greek salad is the simplest of salads but for me, one of the most delicious. 😋Using the freshest ingredients you can find and you’ll have a salad so good, so quickly, you’ll wonder why you’ve always waited to go to the Mediterranean to have one rather than just making it at home! . #ReNourish #Rhitrition #RhiannonLambert #GreekSalad #IbizaBay
🧡Beta carotene is an antioxidant (healthy compounds) which plays a very important role in health - it’s also what's responsible for the red, yellow, and orange coloration of some fruits and veggies! 🥗We all know eating more plant foods is a good thing and with each type of antioxidant (there are quite a few!) having it's own particular role to play in the body, over-consuming one type will not help you overall. 🙌🏻That means, if you're having a meal full of orange for example like this butternut squash and yummy turmeric egg muffins, try and opt for more variety like greens later in the day. . #ReNourish #Rhitrition #RhiannonLambert
#MYTHBUSTINGMONDAY . APPETITE SUPPRESSANTS . 🤯Hair growth gummies, waist trainers, detox tea with laxatives - if a Kardashian is peddling something, you know it's going to cause a stir! 🤬And Kim’s latest ad (which sadly after being initially deleted has now reappeared!), she sucks on a lollipop plugging appetite suppressants. 🙄They contain Satiereal (saffron extract) which the manufacturer Flat Tummy Co suggests is a “clinically proven safe active ingredient extracted from natural plants” and “if you snack on them when you’re feeling hungry, it’ll suppress your appetite for a few hours!” 🤓Fun fact - on a label, ingredients are listed in order of predominance, with those used in greatest amount first, followed in descending order by those in smaller amounts. 🍭Other than supposed magical saffron extract (with zero credible scientific research for suppressing appetite), the first two ingredients are cane sugar and brown rice syrup - so it's basically just an expensive lollipop full of sugar. 👎🏻What's worse is that the company have previously (this isn't the first time they've been in trouble) stated they are "not aware of the relevant regulation, and did not hold scientific data to support their claims." 😳There's even a disclaimer on the website which confirms none of their products are approved by the US food regulatory body! 😩While they may not be straight-up dangerous, they aren't a healthy part of any diet. They edge very close to disordered eating territory. Kim is actively encouraging unhealthy relationships with food - terrifying given she has 111million followers. 🍽Eating disorders are mental illnesses with complex causes, so it's unlikely that lollipops would be the sole reason for someone developing one. But, we know that appetite suppressants are used by people with restrictive eating habits. ✋🏻And what about those who were previously content with their bodies and eating patterns? They now have the seed implanted that being hungry is somehow wrong - it's not! 🤑Sadly, for as long as Flat Tummy Co pay Kim up to £185,000 per post acting oblivious to regulations, these pseudoscientific claims will continue. . #ReNourish #Rhitrition
HAPPINESS 👋🏻Some people think there are far more significant things to worry but others see happiness as something that everyone ultimately wants in life. 🙌🏻For me, happiness is about being able to make the most of the good times but also to cope effectively with the inevitable bad times. 🤓One popular misconception about happiness is that happy people are somehow more likely to be lazy or ineffective. I spent my Saturday night reading a whole body of research showing the opposite is true. 💚Happiness doesn’t just feel good, it actually leads to a wide range of benefits for our performance, health, relationships and more! 🙏🏻In healthcare, doctors who are happy have been found to make faster and more accurate diagnoses. In education, schools that focus on children’s social and emotional wellbeing experience significant gains in academic attainment as well as behaviour. Happiness has also been linked to better decision-making and improved creativity. ✨So, rather than success being the key to happiness, research shows that happiness could in fact be the key to success. 👯‍♀There's even evidence that happiness is contagious, so that happier people help others around them to become happier too. An extensive study in the British Medical Journal followed people over 20 years and found their happiness affected others across “three degrees of separation”. Basically, how happy we are has a measurable impact on the mood of our friend’s friend’s friend. 😘So happiness does matter and the scientific evidence is compelling! I believe the pursuit of happiness is not some fluffy nice-to-have or middle-class luxury; it’s about helping people to live better lives and creating a society that is more productive, healthy and cohesive. 😁Happiness is the thing we want most for the people we love the most. That’s why it matters so much and why you shouldn't think twice about an opportunity waiting to put a smile on your face! 🙋🏼‍♀Join me 8pm tonight for an #AskRhi live when I'll be talking more about psychology and how nutrition can impact it but if you've got questions, please comment and I can't wait get through them all! . #ReNourish #RhiannonLambert #Rhitrition #Happiness
👋🏻How many things can you cook on autopilot? 😅I’m talking so easy they leave your mind free as they cook away in the oven after a hard day at work. 🥗Roasted vegetables are such a simple, non-fussy way to cook without spending too much time in the kitchen. 🍠And I find the colour, flavour, and texture of sweet potatoes is particularly satisfying. 🤓Sweet potatoes are a source of complex carbohydrates, which mean a slow release of energy to help you through your day, making a great addition to your lunchbox. 😋I love mixing up my spices too, it’s hard to go wrong and this time I used fennel seeds, paprika and chilli flakes after massaging the raw wedges in olive oil. 🛒So, go shopping for your fave roasted veggies and prep them this weekend! 🔪Remember, cutting the potatoes into thin wedges or dicing them into small cubes makes all the difference in how long they cook. . #ReNourish #Rhitrition #RhiannonLambert #SweetPotato
🌈Eat a Rainbow! 🥣Passionfruit & buckwheat granola bowl, strawberries and almond nut butter on toast, tropical juice and a matcha. 🤗A gentle reminder breakfast doesn’t always have to be the same, try something new! 🍵Matcha lattes are now cropping up everywhere and if you don’t enjoy the taste of coffee they can be a fab alternative. 💚The leaves are supposedly richer in antioxidants than other types of tea because of the way they are processed. 👩🏼‍🔬Green tea contains B vitamins, folate (naturally occurring folic acid), manganese, potassium, magnesium, caffeine and other antioxidants, notably catechins. 🤓The evidence for health claims surrounding matcha are mixed, do enjoy it but don’t expect a miracle from a single drink. #rhitrition #renourish #rhiannonlambert #matchalatte
😍My Sweet Potato frittata with a mishmash of colours and textures, it's fab for leftovers and great at room temperature or reheated. 👍🏻The trick is to make your frittata as speedily as possible. The whole thing becomes quite a faff if you have to cook the contents in separate pans! 🤗Here's @EatNourishLove showing us just how easy my recipe is from my book #ReNourish with a side of guacamole! . #Rhitrition #RhiannonLambert #Nutrition
🥞When life doesn’t go to plan, only chocolate pancakes will do! 😋I really do enjoy everything in moderation. 💁🏼‍♀️As a Nutritionist I’m often pre-judged as an ‘extreme’ eater such as, all salads, no sugar, no fried food, all the kale etc.... but the truth is, even that stereotype is harmful. ❣️A middle ground is out there for us all, never judge a book by its cover! . #renourish #rhitrition #rhiannonlambert #pancakes #icecream
👩🏻‍🍳A good chopping board* is nothing without a quality @RobertWelchUK knife! 💚Perfect for my sweet tooth, assisting me with the challenge of cutting my daily cake! 👍🏻In all seriousness, a quality set of cutlery is something I really should have invested in some time ago. *😂I couldn’t resist sharing such a wonderful present from my client! 🤗And if you don’t fancy buying an engraved chopping board for someone, these @RobertWelchUK sets are really special, they’d make a fantastic engagement or wedding pressie! . #Rhitrition #RhiannonLambert #ISaidYes #Engaged #WeddingPresent
MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS 🧠Two thirds of us experience mental health problems over the course of our lives and in the past year alone, 74% of the UK was 'overwhelmed or unable to cope' according @MentalHealthFoundation. 🤷🏼‍♀A key contributing factor to this? Stress. 👊🏻Starting yesterday, this year's #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek campaign aims to get people tackling the issue to try to prevent or reduce issues such as depression and anxiety. 👍🏻But how do you do that? There are a number of ways, one of which includes mindfulness. 👋🏻When we're constantly in a state of hurriedness we're constantly thinking about the future and the past, but not the present. For me, mindfulness and meditation allows me to start to switch off that hurried side of the brain and start to bring my state of mind back to present. ⏳Take 5 minutes, turn off the TV and put your phone away and just be still and breathe. Just be still with yourself at some point today - practice that for five minutes. 😳You might be surprised to hear that stress can also even lead to physical health problems such as cardiovascular disease and joint and muscle problems. Under stress, your liver also produces extra blood sugar to give you a boost of energy, something that excessive amounts can lead to chronic conditions. 🤒People with chronic stress are also more susceptible to viral illnesses like the flu and stress can increase the time it takes you to recover from an illness or injury. 👍🏻I think it's clear we all need to start to taking stress and our mental health seriously, so much so that I believe employers should treat stress and mental health risks as seriously as physical health and safety. 👤Yet many employees are reluctant to talk about stress at work. There's still a stigma attached to stress and people still think they will be seen as weak if they admit they are struggling. But stress is not a weakness and can affect anyone at any level. . #MentalHealth #ReNourish #Rhitrition #RhiannonLambert #Stress #InstaMentalHealth #InstaHealth #Reiss #Suiting
#MYTHBUSTINGMONDAY . Fresh Vs. Frozen . 🥗You're thinking fresh is best – right? Actually, studies on the relative benefits of fresh and frozen show absolutely no consistent differences. 🛒When shopping for fresh veggies, so many of you don't stop at the frozen food aisle. 🥦Somehow, it's ingrained in people that the freezing process depletes foods of some nutritious value but it's just not true. 🍠While it's easy to be sceptical, when it comes to frozen fruit and veg, they count towards your five-a-day just as effectively, with the British Nutrition Foundation going as far as actually recommending frozen products. 🌿If you worry about them losing nutrients, then remember that fresh ones lose them too. 🥒Research has shown than green peas can lose just over half their vitamin C in the first 24 to 48 hours after picking. 🍇Frozen fruit and vegetables, if kept undisturbed in a good freezer, will have been captured and preserved in their prime and retain their minerals and vitamins. And, of course, frozen peas are much better than fresh ones for applying to minor bumps on the head! 🤷🏼‍♀️What's your take on frozen food? Are there fresh products you just can't live without or is there space for to fill your freezer space with something new? 👍🏻I always make sure I'm stocked up on @StrongRootsUK as they offer delicious plant-based options and their whole range is frozen - perfect for those days when I don't have time to cook. . #ReNourish #Rhitrition #RhiannonLambert #Vegan #nutritionisascience
DEFINING BALANCE 🙌🏻After speaking yesterday to an amazing full house @Balance_Festival , a young girl came to me and asked what many would believe to be an impossible question - 'What exactly is balance?' 👍🏻Well, whatever it means to you, I really do support it but only so long as we don't define it with any rules. 🍕Every aspect of your eating, from the nutritious and colourful food to the late night pizzas and glasses of wine - I think these are all ingredients for a happy, healthy life. 🥑There is now more pressure than ever before to be healthy and yet many seem to have lost the concept of balance and any happy in-between. 🤗We should all be encouraging and supporting each other to live a lifestyle that makes us feel great and feel comfortable with the food we eat every day. 👎🏻If you aren’t enjoying what you’re doing, and you're limiting your life to adhere to something specific or being restrictive to the point of it dictating your life, then in reality you aren’t being healthy at all. 💚In order to achieve optimum health which is crucial to a healthy state of mind, you need to return to the basic principles of evidence-based nutrition and learn what works for you as an individual. . #ReNourish #Rhitrition #RhiannonLambert . 📷@bespokefuel omelette with celeriac, sweet potato, avocado, mushroom and tomato
