@nutritionbyyasmin and I are super excited to announce the launch of our new company The Yoghurt & Juice Network @yoghurtandjuice_network yoghurtandjuice_network. This is something we’ve been working on for a while now. As nutritionists we’re committed to helping improve the health of the children in the UK and we feel that education is a key player in encouraging children to make healthier choices and improve their overall wellbeing. As a result we’ve created The Yoghurt & Juice Network that will provide nutrition education in schools and colleges aimed at children, parents and teachers across the UK. If you feel you know anyone who could benefit from us please get in touch. We’d love to chat!

WINTER CARB CRAVINGS. As the weather has got colder you might find that you've been craving more carb heavy comfort food. One reason for this is as our Vitamin D levels drop (vitamin D is produced by the sun) so do our serotonin levels (this is our happy hormone). Carbohydrates help the production of serotonin which in turn helps us to feel happier.
So in short carbs = happiness. 🤗
Ensure you're consuming complex carbohydrates such as starchy vegetables, whole grains, brown rice, quinoa and oats etc as these are higher in fibre and nutrients than the more refined varieties. What are your carb go tos?😘
Happy Monday! This week is #alcoholawarenessweek (don’t worry I’m not here to put you off drinking for life). I’m often talking about how to drink in a responsible way whilst enjoying life yet not overdoing it. So let’s talk about supporting your health as best you can alongside a few drinks every so often.
Alcohol metabolism depletes a few key nutrients so it’s essential that we replace them following an alcoholic tipple.
B-vitamins - these help to metabolise alcohol meaning there’s less of them to carry out their key roles in the body (e.g. food metabolism, red cell production and the maintenance of the central nervous system). Foods rich in B-vitamins include wholegrains, meat, fish, eggs, beans, leafy vegetables and some fruits. 🍐🥒🥜
Magnesium, zinc and vitamin C are also lost through alcohol metabolism. Dark chocolate, beans, green leafy vegetables, nuts and citrus fruits are all sources.
So make sure to pack in a range of whole nutrient rich foods following a few drinks. Don’t forget to save this post as a reminder for the more hungover mornings! 😘
