Today I went to one of my other charities called Brain Tumour Support and today they had a dietician there.
I can say that I respectfully had to disagree with some of the things she said.
When she was speaking about dairy she made it sound like all calcium comes from cow's milk and that we need cow's milk as part of our health.
When she was speaking about protein and iron she said that you can only get iron from red meat... Ha, I don't think so.
How misinformed she is.
For one, spinach provides iron. Why do you think pop eye used to eat it?
People who are anaemic and are low on iron are likely told to eat red meat but just because we are told this doesn't mean we have to follow suit.
If I were anaemic I would be consuming tons of spinach.
