Every diet you’ve ever been on claims that theirs holds the secret magic formula, and all you need to do is follow it, and your life will be all sunshine and roses. But the truth is there is no secret magic formula, so this week, we’re chucking all that out the window and taking it back to basics.

Today we’re talking all about food, which, as a nutritionist, is one of my favorite things to talk about.

So in this episode, I’m sharing my top 3 criteria when it comes to choosing what food to eat, and sharing how I decide what to eat on any given day.
