Are you confused when it comes to planning meals?

Waaay back humans were grateful to eat whatever they could catch or grow… then post-war when there was more food and food choices available eating started getting tricky.

Don’t eat fat, fat’s bad, don’t eat eggs, it’s bad for cholesterol levels, eat more grains, save time and eat processed foods… no wonder we’re confused – especially when the experts revealed they’d gotten things wrong – we need healthy fats to process foods, eggs are great – although processed foods are still in the bad boy camp.

One person who can help us navigate the modern-day food maze is our resident accredited dietician and nutritionist Caitlyn Henderson from Healthy Lifestyles Australia – who was more than happy to explain what she and her fellow dieticians actually do.
