THE PLANETARY DIET . 💚A diet has been developed that promises to save lives, feed 10 billion people and all without causing catastrophic damage to the planet! . 🤓37 of the world's top scientists (EAT-Lancet) have been trying to figure out how to feed the world when its expected to reach 10 billion around 2050 . 🌍They call it "the planetary health diet" and what may surprise many of you is that does not completely banish meat and dairy . WHAT'S THE DEAL? . 🥩For red meat fans, you're looking at a burger a week or a large steak a month . 🍗A couple of portions of chicken and the same of fish a week, but plants are where the rest of your protein will need to come from, nuts and a good helping of legumes every day . 🥬A big push on all fruit and veg, which should make up half of every plate we eat . THE HEALTH BENEFITS . 👍🏻They say the diet will prevent about 11 million people dying each year, cutting diseases related to unhealthy diets such as heart attacks, strokes and cancers - the biggest killers . THE BOTTOM LINE . 😋It's not about deprivation, it is all things in moderation and healthy plant-based eating. And for those thinking that going 100% vegan or veggie is the way forward, they note that if they "were just minimising greenhouse gases we'd say everyone be vegan", yet "it was unclear whether a vegan diet was the healthiest option" . So, here are few tips to take home; . 🥩Reduce red and processed meat intake whilst increasing plant-based proteins such as beans and soya . 🐟Enjoy varied and sustainable fish sources . 🥛Consume dairy as a source of calcium, iodine and vitamin B12, or fortified plant-based milks . 🥦Find seasonal and local fruit and veg, and increase its overall consumption. Something local but not in season can still be environmentally taxing and so knowing what’s in season is important! . 🥔Increase wholegrain carb intake - increases fibre consumption and lower carbon footprint . 📗And if you want to find out more about eating for a better planet, check out my Simple Way To Eat Plant-Based YouTube book preview - link in bio! . #Rhitrition #Nutrition #EATLancet #Diet 📷 tofu and chips from #ReNourish
💥EXPLICIT CONTENT💥 . 🤓All these January’s supposed body blitzing, cleansing, fad diets going viral are driving me round the bend, so here’s a reminder of a few things absolutely no qualified health professional will ever say! . ‘It’s time you went on a detox’ . 🙌🏻The good news is that you've already got a detoxification system. It’s called the liver and no tea, juice cleanse or diet will do it’s job any better! . ‘It works for me so it will for you, too’ . 👋🏻Sorry but there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition and health. Genetics, age, sex and lifestyle all make us as unique as our personalities. Find what works for you, nobody else. . ‘Are you eating enough superfoods?’ . 👍🏻The key to good health isn’t, as if by magic, at the bottom of a pack of chia seeds. There is no one miracle food, so instead enjoy a balanced colourful plate embracing a wide variety of foods. . ‘Say goodbye to all the things you love in this world.’ . 😋The last thing we want is for people to take a bite of anything and have it taste like a diet. Restriction has absolutely no place in a happy, healthy relationship with eating. . 💚The diet industry just fuels feelings of guilt and shame, classing foods either as good or bad. In doing so we are damaging our relationship with what we eat. Remember, there is no diet that will do what healthy eating does. . #Rhitrition #ReNourish #Nutrition #Health

💁🏼‍♀️Just like skin, the condition of your hair is an outward sign of inside health. Believe it or not, the cells that make up each strand of hair require a regular supply of key nutrients. . 💚@Pantene have asked me to share some of the nutrients you need for your hair to remain lustrous and strong! . 💪🏻Protein . 🧀 As hair is made of protein, ensuring you have enough protein in your diet is crucial for making hair strong and healthy Chicken, Fish, Dairy, Eggs, Edamame, Tofu . 🍠Vitamin B . Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin and alongside Pantothenic acid (B5), too little can cause brittle hair and may lead to hair loss. @Pantene 's Superfoods Collection has a high amount of B5 alongside lipids and antioxidants! You can also find B vits in Wholegrains, Egg Yolk, Sweet Potatoes, Mushrooms . 🥦Iron . Hair follicles and roots are fed by a nutrient-rich blood supply so too little iron is a major cause of hair loss. Lentils, Spinach, Broccoli, Kale . 🥑Omega-3 . Found in the cells that line the scalp, they provide the oils that keep your scalp and hair hydrated Salmon, Mackerel, Sardines, Nuts, Seeds . 🥜Vitamin E . The sun can damage our hair just like it can damage our skin so ensure you eat foods rich in vitamin E to provide protection for your hair. Nuts, Seeds, Leafy Greens . 💧Water . The human body is approx. 60% water so it makes perfect sense that we need to keep this optimum level topped up 💊 Supplements . 👍🏻As long as you enjoy a varied and balanced diet, you’re almost certainly at no risk of vitamin and mineral deficiencies. There's no need to pay for expensive supplements. . AD #Rhitrition #ReNourish #PanteneSuperfood

Remove and set aside to cool. . 3️⃣While the sweet potatoes are baking, heat the oil in a 26cm ovenproof frying pan over a low-medium heat. Add the onions with a pinch of salt and cook for 10 minutes, until soft, stirring regularly (if you use a lid they will soften more quickly). Add the garlic and cook for a further minute. . 4️⃣Meanwhile crack the eggs into a bowl, crumble in the cheese, add the nutmeg and seasoning and whisk.

IN THE NEWS . 😳We all know childhood obesity is a serious health concern but with now more than 1 in 5 children are already overweight or obese at age 4-5 and by age 10-11, this figure increases to 1 in 3 - it's time we all shared a responsibility to get the UK healthier! . 🤓It's not just ill health that's the result, it's poor mental health, reduced self-esteem and once obesity is established, it typically tracks through to adolescence and is linked to serious diseases of the cardiovascular system, including type 2 diabetes and stroke, and certain cancers. . 📺I was invited to speak @SkyNews on how can create strong interventions. Here are just a few of the measures we should all be promoting; . ✔Improved labelling on pre-packaged, takeaway and restaurant foods to help achieve an optimal energy balance . ✔Collaboration with the food industry, encouraging the reformulation to reduce sugar in food and drink, without increasing fat, saturated fat and salt levels . ✔Strong controls on the marketing and advertising of unhealthy food and drink . ✔Clear guidance on portion sizes for children . ✔Support for breastfeeding for all children including an improved provision for mothers to breastfeed out and about . ✔Improved early years education to inform and promote appropriate introduction of solids to the children's diet . ✔Improved access to evidence-based advice starting with expectant mothers, children and their families . 🙌🏻I don't want to stop there though, we need improved nutritional training for all healthcare professionals including GPs, universal school food standards, greater powers for local authorities and health services to transform obesigenic high-street environments. . 💚Ultimately, a whole system approach is embraced, where evidence-based nutrition is taught and shared by credible, qualified and experienced professionals to people of all ages! . 🤷🏼‍♀What do you think we can to help transform the UK's issues? With 27% of Britain’s population obese, please share your ideas and let's fight together! . #Rhitrition #Nutrition #ReNourish #Nutrition #Obesity #Diet

Then, I wanted to analyse the menus of their most popular restaurants ✔️.

VEGGIE POWER . 💚All of our relationships with food have become more complicated recently, I have never seen as much availability and choice increase in everything! This means there's now so many more reasons why we might choose a certain meal, snack or drink. . 🌱Yet one food choice of my own that has remained ever present has been vegetables. Their importance is absolutely critical for us to perform optimally in every way! . 🥬In fact, what I love reading most about is how eating a diet high vegetables may be protective against depression - they effectively raise our mood. So, Remember, plant-based eating isn't just for #Veganuary , veggies should really be enjoyed all year round to help keep us as happy as we can be! . 🙋🏼‍♀️Yet for those thinking veggies are just not tasty enough, or exciting enough or even filling perhaps, I'm so excited to share @HeckFoodUK 's new range of veggie sausages! . 🤗They've had so much fun in the kitchen devising these new recipes with The Beet Goes On, Heck Bollywood Bangers, Sweet Fusion and Super Green flavours.
