nutrition with jackie ~HAVE A GOOD YEAR ~

However 2017 turned out for you, we’re all hoping 2018 will be a good year and you can make that more likely!

Jim Rohn said: “You are the sum of the five people with whom you spend the most time.”

Who are those five people for you? Do they inspire or drag you down? Since you’re going to end up like them, keep company with the sort of people you’d like to be.

Jim Rohn also said you’re the average of “the five things around you, the ideas of the five books you read, the feelings from the five films or TV programmes you watch.”

It can sometimes feel like the party is over in January. We’ve had the festivities and now we’re back to normality. The house can look bare once all the decorations are down. Most years, we just use this as an excuse for buying candles and lighting up the house in a slightly different way.

Many people will be looking for healthy options after the excesses of the season. Kale and carrots are just in season at the moment. Kale is such a hyped vegetable nowadays. Someone’s done a good job convincing us that it’s a superfood (a term I really hate) full of vitamins and goodness. I’m not a huge fan myself. I’ll use it in a stir-fry but little else. Carrots, however, are hugely versatile. As this is the time for stews and casseroles, I use a lot of carrots at this time of year, along with some of the other great root vegetables: swede, turnip and celeriac. It’s comfort food and that’s what

we need to see us through January.

This period of late winter can deliver some fantastic days out, especially if we get a little snow on the fells too, so it’s not all doom and gloom. We’ll soon be welcoming snowdrops and crocuses too and then we will know that spring is on its way. That’s when we’ll welcome in the new batch of potatoes and things can get really interesting in the kitchen.

For now, though, we will have to content ourselves with one-pot meals that cook for hours and fill the whole house with scents that are warm and comforting. Don’t forget to add your nice, cheap cuts of meat if you want. A good few hours of cooking can reduce the toughest joint to a melt in the mouth sensation. It’s simply that time of year.

I’ll continue with the theme: • • • • •

websites you read activities you do items you use

songs you listen to foods you eat

Thinking of food, I’ve been consoling people who over-indulged at Christmas and New Year by reminding them that our regular habits matter more than what we eat or drink occasionally. So, what is it that we eat most of in Britain? Chicken perhaps, or potatoes? No, apparently, it’s white flour, hardly a health food. Why so much? Think bread, wraps, pasta, pizza base, pies and pastry,

cakes, biscuits... need I go on? No wonder much of the population is over-fed but undernourished. What can you do? Resolve to regularly include more good things in your diet this year.

Try these 5:

• vegetables – have some with every meal (potatoes don’t count)

• meat/fish – good quality, home-cooked • healthy fats - olive oil, butter, nuts

• fruit – have a piece each day (but skip the fruit juice)

• water – as your number 1 drink

Top tips – Make your main 5 foods/drinks good ones

Not sure what’s good? Come on my course! Happy New Year!
