I am Yeside and I am a registered Nutritionist by profession. My enthusiasm about food drives me to e-libraries, journals, articles, blogs and others searching for information about food especially Nigerian food. I am very interested in infant and young child nutrition and I enjoy making/creating meals for infants (from 6 months) and toddlers. I use my infant, toddler and husband as my panelists. Please take note that I am not a Chef (and I do not have mamaput skills) but I can cook decent and satisfactory meal s for my family like the ordinary Nigerian woman.
Being a nutritionist, I am very much aware that having the ‘best’ foods on your plate does not necessarily translate to a healthy body or life. The way you process and prepare foods also determines how well the nutrients contained in them are available for your body to utilize. This platform therefore promises to explore the right ways and best procedures for processing and preparing your foods for their maximum utilization.
I will also explore some underutilized foods in Nigeria that have great nutritional value and will create some recipes as well as look at ways some cultures are utilizing these foods.
In a nutshell, I am bringing the science of nutrition to you in a way that you can use credible evidence-based information to better your nutrition and that of your family.
I am also a writer. I write both fiction and non-fiction. For lovers of romance and suspense, tighten your seat belts because I am going to get you hooked right here.
Guys, feedback would be great. Please do not hesitate to comment, share information as well as add your 10Naira to our discussions here.
