So What Do Dieticians REALLY do? - Caitlyn Henderson Are you confused when it comes to planning meals? Waaay back humans were grateful to eat whatever they could catch or grow… then post-war when there was more food and food choices available eating started getting tricky. Don’t eat fat, fat’s bad, don’t eat eggs, it’s bad for cholesterol levels, eat more grains, save time and eat processed foods… no wonder we’re confused – especially when the experts revealed they’d gotten things wrong – we need healthy fats to process foods, eggs are great – although processed foods are still in the bad boy camp.One person who can help us navigate the modern-day food maze is our resident accredited dietician and nutritionist Caitlyn Henderson from Healthy Lifestyles Australia – who was more than happy to explain what she and her fellow dieticians actually do.
Mouse In The House (Caravan) Update - Brian & Kaye Recently we mentioned we accidentally allowed some little mice into the caravan. The little rotters must have thought they’d found nirvana when they were able to slip under the magnetic insect curtain we’d put across the door to enable our old doggy to go outside for a tinkle if she needed to, without us having to get up and open the door etc.Well- it seems we’re not the only ones with mouse problems at the moment – and we're not even talking about the poor people in regional NSW suffering a mouse plague in the hundreds of thousands!!Nope – fellow traveller/lifestyle/storytellers Vantastic Aus have been doing a bit of farm-stay work – and got an interesting surprise while checking a bale of freshly shorn wool.
