I thought it best to start my first blog by way of introduction, so here goes!
My name is Toni Smyth. I am a Registered Dietician and have recently started my own practice in Claremont Cape Town.
Before I say anything more, let me clarify one thing. Just because I am a Dietician, it does not mean that I survive on celery sticks and boiled chicken. I. LOVE. FOOD. I can spend hours in the grocery store, love eating out and love trying new recipes and meals. And just to be clear, I hate celery!
Now that we have cleared that misconception up – let’s talk about food!
I love the fact that â€œhome grownâ€ is coming back into fashion. We find ourselves surrounded by fresh produce markets and deli-style eateries selling fresh, tasty and healthy meals. Nothing better! Goodbye Golden arch, hello good wholesome food! Every day I find myself explaining the importance of choosing fresh, nutrient-dense foods over their refined counterparts, and I am thankful that the current trends make it easier
for people to follow these guidelines!
Two if the great markets I have come across in Cape Town are:
The Stellenbosch Slow Market: www.slowmarket.co.za
The Hout Bay Market: www.bayharbour.co.za
Do you know of any more hidden gems?
