Nutrition can be confusing with all the different diets and research out there that say saturated fats/fruit/grains/meat/dairy…etc, etc. are ‘bad for you.’ We take an individualised approach when helping our clients with nutrition as there is a no ‘one-size-fits-all’ diet out there, especially when we are trying to heal our bodies.
However…There is one type of food that ALL researchers and nutritionists agree as being extremely beneficial: VEGETABLES! You can’t go wrong if you fill up the majority of your plate with good old, wholesome veggies.
Here’s a delicious meal that can help you UP your vegetable intake – VEGGIE BURRITO BOWL!
