With the introduction of our nutritionist, Nicola Quinn Beauty and Day Spa want to ensure all of our clients’ health, beauty and wellness is looked after.
What is nutrition? Nutrition is the study of how food affects the body. Components of food are used by the body to provide energy, build and repair body tissue and drive metabolic reactions, supporting the body’s overall function. This includes protein, carbohydrates, fats and all the various vitamins and minerals.
It is true that 'you are what you eat!' The nutrients that are found in food help to build your body, therefore what you eat counts. To help keep your body healthy it is important to supply it with all the nutrients it requires, we can do this by choosing a variety of wholefoods including vegetables, fruits, legumes, seafood, dairy and meat. The closer the food is to the way it is found in nature the better. Processed foods may contain many synthetic ingredients which are foreign to the body and are best only eaten on occasion.
To help you achieve your health goals, we are excited to start 2017 by introducing Joanna, our Nutritionist. Working with you to help improve your health and wellbeing today!
