When we know better, we do better. And as we educate ourselves we do better. I’m the same. I’ve learned through the thirty years I’ve had kids and even before that. And as I learn I do better. Even the food I fed my kids I realise now it probably wasn’t the best food because I was feeding them organic flour and now I know that was Triticum aestivum that was hybrodised wheat. Even though it was organic it was probably still contaminated. I used raw sugar, I should have been using rapadura sugar. I probably fed them on too many carbohydrates. I can go through that whole guilt too. But that was the best I could do at the time. And I was doing better than anyone else out there too. But now that I know better I’ll do better with my grandchildren.” Cyndi O’Meara
I am super excited to bring to you one of the world’s most well renowned and respected Nutritionists’ and Researchers’ Cyndi O’Meara. This week this very dear friend of mine and I take a deep dive into how food is affecting every part of our life, soul and being. Cyndi explains how important education, being observant and having an open, curious and enquiring mind is how we will know better in order to do better.
Cyndi is about educating. Her greatest love is to teach, both in the public arena and within the large corporate food companies, to enable everyone to make better choices so they too can enjoy greater health throughout their lives. Her unique, surprisingly simple yet extensively researched but down-to-earth approach, challenges and encourages others to eliminate unhealthy habits and has inspired thousands to make smarter choices about the food they choose to put into their body.
Cyndi confronts her audiences, whether, within the public or corporate sectors, she has the courage to call out deception and misinformation and believes in arming people with the tools and resources to reach their goals.
By educating people on food choices, how to read food labels, why diets don’t work, and how drugs can affect your total well-being and vitality, Cyndi empowers them to make long-lasting changes with simple and achievable steps on how to create healthier habits.
Cyndi suggests the following simple 6 ingredients for great health:
Cyndi’s Favourite Quotes:
