Bite-sized Nutrition Tips

by | Jul 25, 2020 | Blog

What was your Lockdown Project? Mine was a series of Bite-sized Nutrition Tips via short videos that you can find here: Bite-sized Nutrition Tips

My aim was to support people with easy ways to strengthen their immune systems and soothe the impacts of stress. I wanted to offer bite-sized chunks of useful information to help see us all through a global pandemic.

A healthy immune system is not just for Covid!

These Bite-sized Nutrition Tips are as relevant today as on the first day of lockdown. In fact, I am so familiar with all of these snippets of advice because I have so frequently recommended them for years. A healthy immune system is not just for Covid. And we all need help unravelling the impact of stress on our adrenals, nerves, immune system, digestion, heart health, fertility, cognitive and mental health.

Some of tips are about specific nutrients, such as magnesium, selenium and vitamin B5. Others are about foods, such as bananas and butternut squash, or herbs and spices, like rosemary and ginger. There are also short videos on sleep and nature, and an extended edition on mindful eating. Most of them are up to a minute long, to make them Instagrammable, but there are a few that are slightly longer, such the liver support video, and the one about quercetin and other phytonutrients that have interesting research related to coronaviruses, including Covid-19.

They’re all fairly low-fi, recorded on my phone with various states of lockdown hair, and a slightly dubious carrot prop for the vitamin D tip. I think that all adds to their charm! And it helped me get over wanting things to look slick and perfect – wanting me to look slick and perfect – before I put myself out there like this.

22 and counting

I recorded 22 Bite-sized Nutrition Tips during lockdown. I still have so many ideas for more, and hope to keep adding to them – but another project has been getting in the way for a while. My book, Nutrition Brought to Life, was due out in May, but lockdown shut down all the printers too. But then suddenly we got the go ahead, and so of course I did a final proof read. And that turned into 4 or 5 final proof reads. And now I’m busy launching, promoting and generally being excited about it all. But keep an eye on my Bite-sized Nutrition Tips, because I very much plan to keep adding to them when I can.
