Nutrition Tip | Eating well in Winter

​Staying healthy is on everyone's mind this Winter and one of the best ways to stay healthy is eating well.

While there are no magic foods (or supplements) that can stop you from getting a cold or flu, we know that eating a variety of different nutritious foods can help the immune system do its job. Nutrients known to support immune function are: Vitamin C, Vitamin A, folate and zinc. 

All you need is:

• ½ a red capsicum OR one orange to provide your daily vitamin C needs. 
• 1 cup of rockmelon or pumpkin to provide you with Vitamin A. 
•  ½ cup of cooked broccoli with your dinner for folate. 
• Load up on your baked beans, cashew nuts or lean red meat for zinc. 

The micronutrients in these foods make them far more effective than any supplement. 

Let food be thy medicine!!

Face to Face Again | Carol Cooke AM

February 10th, 2021

This week for the first time in almost a year I had a speaking gig, in person, face to face. In the last year I have done a number of gigs but because of Covid-19 they have all be virtual. That’s okay but it certainly isn’t the same as being face to face with your audience. To be able to gage their body language, their facial expressions, or how much you have them interested in your story is so much easier when you are in the same room and not looking at them on a screen.
