Men’s Health

 

With BBQ season upon us and long summer evenings ahead, I’ve put together some top nutrition tips for men as well as some handy myth busting!

My Vet background gives me clear understanding around how foods like beef and dairy can still form part of climate-friendly eating too. Check the link below for my practical nutrition advice on:

✔️ How to enjoy meat in plant based, gut healthy eating

✔️ When whole milk is a great choice and what to choose if it’s not

✔️ How to up the plants in the food you love!!

✔️ Top tips on common concerns like heart health, cholesterol, weight and pre diabetes…

✔️ Actionable steps for actual change

 

So enjoy a summer of good food while looking after your health & our planet! 

What about food production and our climate crisis? Regenerative Farming methods can hold the answer:

Regenerative farming systems are ones which rely on natural, connected processes to enrich the soil. Whether ‘Green manure’  – using herbs & grasses to keep soil covered & feed nutrients back into the soil or grazing animals to fertilise it naturally, planting crops to protect each other or to encourage natural predators (against crop disease) or the so called ‘no till’ –  avoiding disrupting the structure of the soil, these systems all restore and rely on each other. All this means fewer or no added chemicals and results in better water retention, more carbon capture, the highest animal welfare, nature restoration and even some surprising changes to our food!

The Vet in me needs to share just one of the many overlooked miracles of cows – those long tongues wrap around blades of grass, tug at the ground & trigger the grass to feed its soil microbes by releasing sugars through its roots. The result? More fertile soil which captures the greenhouse gases produced far more effectively. This is why these farming systems are also termed ‘Climate-friendly’ . Hence the term ‘Less but Better’ meat.
