Zinc an important trace mineral that is needed for healthy cell division, hormone production, growth and repairment, immunity and digestion.
It’s an anti-inflammatory agent, which fights against chronic disease and prevents ageing.
Zinc deficiency results in immune dysfunction, increases susceptibility to infection and delayed wound healing. If you feel run down or tired all the time it might be time to check your zinc levels.
Organ meats such as kidney and liver, red meat such as beef and lamb, and seafood such as oysters, scallops, and other shellfish are the highest animal sources of zinc. Plant foods such as pumpkin seeds and other nuts can also be high in zinc as well, but they are less bioavailable. Remember the source of your food is important, look for pasture raised and sustainable seafood.

And with #cookidoo you are always spoilt for choice, with endless recipes available you will never have to put up with drab Wednesday night dinners again 🙌🏼
Easy dinner (with ample leftovers for the next few days). Chicken tray bake with 3 colours of veggies. Drizzled with olive oil and a sprinkle of fresh rosemary from my garden. So simple, so delicious, so nutritious. #easyrecipes#easydinner#babyledweaning
While you guys may think lots of my meal creations look fancy and complicated, the reality is that I spend a lot of time eating simple food. I’m not a big fan of elaborate dressings or sauces, peanut butter is pretty much my go-to topping for any meal, and when I’m planning what to eat, the first question I ask myself is how many veggies can I incorporate? In short, I love meals like this one, soft scrambled eggs, organic baby roasted carrots, greens and cherry tomatoes. Simple, yet delicious. Perfect way to get over that hump day slump 👊🏻💁🏼♀️
Staying healthy while eating out. Does that sound like some mythical paradox to you? If so, keep reading.
Eating out with friends is be such a fun experience, but can often be hard for those trying to stay healthy or with food intolerances. It doesn’t have to be though! Here are my top tips for healthy dining out:
▶️ do your research - look up the place you’ll be going to and check out the menu, pick out some healthy options ahead of time. If there’s nothing suitable, call ahead and see what the staff can do!
▶️ if venue choice is up to you then choose a venue that serves healthy food! For brunch and lunch I love @mylkko in New Farm (check out the Vegie Delight and Greens Bowl in this pick)
▶️ eat a little something beforehand so that you won’t be ravenous when you go, and make bad decisions
▶️ order from the sides! Most menus have great healthy options as sides - greens, salads, eggs, avocado, mushrooms etc. just “Make Your Own Meal” by ordering a bunch of healthy side dishes.
▶️where you can try to choose meals that have macronutrient balance (complex carb, vege, protein, fat, fibre) from real foods
Do you have any other hot tips you can share?

Apple berry crumble is rapidly becoming my most overmade dish this autumn
Roast veggies, multi-coloured quinoa, @benourishednz kimchi, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds and an amazing vegan nacho cheese dressing from @naturally_nina_
Gotta love throw together lunches, especially after a bit of an impromptu walk in the rain to coffee group this morning after the battery on my car died 😭Lucky the woman hosting was only a 15 minute down the road!
Now I've got to brave the cold and go jump start the car now so I'm not carless again tomorrow. Brrrrrrrr❄️
Alzheimer’s disease is starting to be known as Type 3 diabetes and the connection has been recognised for a number of years 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
An emerging body of evidence suggests that an increased prevalence of insulin abnormalities and insulin resistance in Alzheimer's disease may contribute to the disease pathophysiology and clinical symptoms.
Findings suggest that insulin may contribute to normal cognitive functioning and that insulin abnormalities may exacerbate cognitive impairments, such as those associated with Alzheimer's disease.
Treatment of insulin resistance may reduce the risk or retard the development of Alzheimer's disease.

It’s #naturalmedicineweek! So I thought I’d talk a little bit about what I do as a (soon to be) BHSc qualified clinical nutritionist.
As Hippocrates said “let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” - I use food and nutrition (as well as therapeutic dose supplements where indicated) to support the body to heal itself by providing the nutrients it needs to heal, maintain, grow and perform biochemical reactions that we need to live.
How that translates to holistic mental health care -
🌱 supporting the gut-brain axis through regulating the gut microbiome, making sure the digestive system works properly, ensuring the production of serotonin in the gut (where 95% of serotonin is found!)
🌱 supporting the production of other neurotransmitters by ensuring the diet contains all the cofactors needed to make them (and supplementing where needed)
🌱 supporting the production of energy using food as medicine so you feel energised and ready to tackle whatever life throws at you
🌱 regulating the HPA axis to improve stress resilience and reduce related anxiety-like symptoms
🌱 supporting the mind and spirit by incorporating mindfulness and exercise (both of which have supporting evidence in terms of mental health care and health in general!) because I don’t just focus on one area, I treat the whole person
What you can expect from our therapeutic relationship - 🌱 I am 100% client centred and empower you to take control of your own health and wellness - you are in control, I am just the facilitator ready to pass on the tools you need! 🌱 A deep appreciation and empathy for what you’re going through, having had experience with mental health troubles myself. @endeavourcollege@naturalmedicineau#anaturalchoice

Thanks guys for helping me figure out how to cook my brisket. I stuck with my coffee rub, slow cooked it in 250 degrees for 8 hours. I was checking to see if the meat was tender with the shish kabob stick. My fast went straight to hell when I tried the brisket. I was like just wanting me to eat it😔 damnnnnnnnnn shit is hella good though😍🤤

Lunch done right 🙌🏼
A little protein
A little avo
A lot of green
A bunch of taste
there was a restaurant where i used to live in Chico, CA that had the most AMAZING salad. it had mixed greens, tomatoes, homemade croutons, red onion, blue cheese crumbles and a scoop of tuna. the dressing was a thick balsamic glaze with a tad bit of olive oil and lemme tell you how much i LOVED it!! the place is called @greatharvest ((in case any of you live in the Chico area)) and they also make delicious breads, cookies and sandwiches! .
so i basically just made my own version here and not to toot my own horn-it came out pretty darn close 😝 there’s mixed greens, fresh blue cheese crumbles, avocado, grape tomatoes, roasted hazelnuts and @edenfoods seaweed gomasio 🍃the tuna has a ton of veggies in it mixed together with avocado oil mayo. tuna ingredients are somewhere back in my feed!😬hope you’ve all had a good day so far, i’m currently folding oodles of laundry and snacking on siete chips 🙊 #nurturingbodyandmind
Ending my long day with a delicious piece of @earthfare cedar plank salmon (we just baked at 400 for 10 minutes) and a side of spicy green beans (steamed and tossed with avocado oil and crushed red pepper!) Getting caught up on work and hoping to crawl my tired body into bed early tonight!☺️ thankful for all life is bringing my way lately - most recently, I’m excited to be a member of the @foodietribe 💕🍴hope you all have a great night!! #foodietribe

They don’t call it CARBonara for nothin’! P.S. For dishes like this where eggs are the star of the show, quality is king. 👌🏼 #VitalFarms
today i made PALEO CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE BARS w/ CBD infused coconut oil, and they turned out AMAZING. you don’t *need* to use the cbd coconut oil if that’s not your thing, just use regular coconut oil. either way there bars are on fleek—yep i said it—so go make them:
1/2 cup @georgiagrinders almond butter
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup + 2tb melted @biovellecbd cbd coconut oil (or regular coconut oil)
1 cup @anthonysgoods almond flour
1 tb coconut flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1 @vitalfarms pasture raised egg
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
preheat oven to 350. line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper (spray pan with coconut oil first so that the parchment paper sticks). mix everything in one bowl, folding in the chocolate chips last. Bake for 20-25 minutes. NOTE: when cooking or baking with with cbd, just make sure to choose foods that are not cooked above 350f (180c). hotter temperatures than this can evaporate the cbd, which means you lose the wonderful benefits
of cbd! #kalejunkie
My love affair with the cold salad continues today, Greek style. This is a bed of chopped salad topped with boiled shrimp, all tossed in @primalkitchenfoods Greek vinaigrette. There’s a mess of feta underneath those lovely shrimp, and my beloved avocado takes center stage. 🥑 #lowcarb#lchf#keto#ketogenic#jerf
