Nutrition is two thirds of the battle against the bulge. But the word diet should be a no-no in your house. Nutritious meals filled with the good stuff are all you need to ensure a better diet and a stronger body. Start your nutrition journey by grabbing a copy of Mogau Seshoene’s “The Lazy Makoti’s Guide to the Kitchen.” The book, published by Quivertree Publications, provides a host of easy recipes using base ingredients you likely already have in your kitchen. The uniquely South African flavour of the book means you’ll be able to make traditional favourites. Bonus? It even provides recipes for leftovers!
While on your nutrition journey be sure to watch Rotten on Netflix. Be warned, it is a hard documentary series to stomach. The six-episode show will open your eyes to some of the biggest corruption in the food industry. It will also alter your shopping habits and lead you into a more sustainable food purchasing pattern as you move into 2019.
