Are you looking for ways to be healthier and happier? Do you want to provide nutritious and delicious meals for your family? Do you want to enjoy your family time more? Then maybe you’ll be interested in my “do more with dinner” idea. This is NOT about “doing” more – it’s about getting more, having more, enjoying more. It’s about family time and food – eating, cooking, shopping, etc.

I sat down with my daughter, Sarah, the other day to talk about how we’ve been doing more with dinner the past few months and some of the ways we will do more in the coming year. This is the first of many episodes where I’ll be chatting with Sarah as well as experts like dietitians and psychologists to share ideas and inspiration.

Today’s episode is about how to have your cake and eat it, too! In other words….modifying recipes for less sugar and fat, and more protein.

Jamila Rene is a Registered Dietitian and founder of No Nonsense Nutritionist. She is a food product developer and also a personal trainer in training. She has a “no nonsense” approach to healthy living: “nutrition and wellness is not black and white, good or bad. It’s all about finding what’s right for YOU.” With a degree in Food Science, Jamila is an expert at “experimenting” in the kitchen and loves to “play” with food to create recipes that are better for you.

Today’s episode is all about vitamins - the confusion about getting them from food vs. supplements, what to take and how much. Vitamins are a confusing topic and vitamin deficiencies can have a significant impact on our health and how we feel. In the book, The Vitamin Solution, doctors Levitan and Block cut through conflicting data about vitamins and minerals and provide a concise, medically-sound approach to supplement use.  They explain which supplements can be helpful, which can be harmful, and which are altogether unnecessary. They explore health conditions and symptoms, including diabetes, hair loss, fatigue, hot flashes, and more; and address preventive care, providing perspective on topics such as screening tests.
