contemplate
food for thought...

What's this all about? I'm a nutrition student who loves food. I'm constantly learning new things about cooking and health that I think others might find helpful.

I believe that a good diet has variety, balance and moderation and always goes hand in hand with exercise. This means that it's ok to eat 'naughty' things every now and then. It's good for your mental health!

I try to find recipes that are easy to make, easy to source, and fit in as a part of a balanced diet. The nutritional advice I get from university notes and textbooks, peer reviewed journal articles, and blogs or websites by accredited dietitians and nutritionists. This means that it is all evidence based. Please feel free to comment, ask questions or start a discussion!
