Things Your Grandmother Would Say About Nutrition That Are Actually Right

I had the pleasure of writing ‘Things Your Grandmother Would Say About Nutrition That Are Right’ for Ideal Nutrition.

I was inspired to write about this topic because I love grandparents. I love my grandparents – I am lucky to be surrounded by 5 grandparents, 4 who are nearing 90 and one who is 90!

Good genes or good nutrition?

Aren’t grandmothers (and grandfathers!!) full of wisdom?!

I often find myself reflecting on how I don’t have many opportunities to soak up their wisdom with how busy life is and living interstate.

I enjoyed interviewing my grandmothers and hearing additional stories from grandmothers about their thoughts on food, eating and nutrition growing up. I even learnt a few things along the way.

Interestingly, the wisdom shared by these grandmothers form some of the foundational pieces of my nutrition philosophy from which I live and help my clients by.

In this post, I discussed what life was like for these women 70-80 years ago, along with their key pieces of nutrition wisdom.
