There is so much information out there on what we should and shouldn't be eating. Recommendations seem to change every month or so! Everyone has an opinion, blog, book - and attests to incredible health from their chosen 'diet'. After 15+ years of studying nutrition and implementing various dietary practices on myself and my clients, I have arrived at some fundamental principles which I now share with my clients. I educate and create awareness; I don't fear monger. My recommendations are based on research, physiology, cultural/historical context, individuality, and common sense!
