Join show host and nutritionist Simon Hill as he sits down with doctors, nutritionists, dieticians, athletes and inspiring people challenging the status quo and making positive change in the world. By breaking down the science, and listening to their stories and wisdom, together we can become more mindful and conscious of how we are living and the impact our food choices have on our health, the planet's health and all of those that we share it with. Importantly, in a world where diet has become very divisive Simon has created a safe space to talk about nutrition without judgement. Eat meat or dairy? That's perfectly fine! Contrary to the stereotypical view of vegans, Simon encourages celebration of anyone taking the time to learn more about the food they put other plate. It's not an all or nothing move.

    • My blog 'Sprouting 101' to help you get started. Including specific information on sprouting broccoli sprouts and flaxseeds to help get you going. Flaxseeds are one of my favourites to sprout because it increases their Omega 3 content, which as you are most likely well aware, features in the Plant Proof Food Pyramid.
