Today on the show I talk to a good friend and bestselling author, Dr Hazel Wallace, aka The Food Medic about eating for public health.
Dr Hazel is also host of The Food Medic podcast and is currently doing a masters in Clinical Nutrition and Public Health at UCL.
I talk to Hazel about how we can eat to improve public health in general and improve the current burden on our health care system.
We talk about:
One of my recipes from The Doctor’s Kitchen book which will ensure you’re hitting your daily fibre intake is my Spicy Baked Eggs with Tomatoes & Chickpeas.
And don’t forget to pre-order a copy of my new book Eat to Beat Illness which is released on 21st March 2019 - I can’t wait for you to read it!
A quote from my conversation with Dr Hazel Wallace -
We tell everyone - meet your 10,000 steps a day, get 150 minutes of activity every week. Some people arent getting half of that, so you have to set people individual targets
Dr Hazel WallaceI’m sure you will agree – that was a super interesting chat that I had with Hazel – it’s clear to see that addressing some of the points that we raised can be so incredibly beneficial to public health in general.
