It's Mother's Day go on, spoil her

 

Nutrition (also called nourishment or aliment) is the provision, to cells and organisms, of the materials necessary (in the form of food) to support life. Many common health problems can be prevented or alleviated with a healthy diet.

The diet of an organism is what it eats, which is largely determined by the perceived palatability of foods. Dietitians are health professionals who specialize in human nutrition, meal planning, economics, and preparation. They are trained to provide safe, evidence-based dietary advice and management to individuals (in health and disease), as well as to institutions. Clinical nutritionists are health professionals who focus more specifically on the role of nutrition in chronic disease, including possible prevention or remediation by addressing nutritional deficiencies before resorting to drugs. While government regulation of the use of this professional title is less universal than for "dietician", the field is supported by many high-level academic programs, up to and including the Doctoral level, and has its own voluntary certification board, professional associations, and peer-reviewed journals, e.g. the American Society for Nutrition and the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Mother's day - How to spoil a Mum

When I was growing up we always used to observe mother's day but almost none of the other 'someone' day festivals. Our usual concept of observing mother's day was to be nagged by our Father into buying some cheap mass produced card and a pot plant that would bie in a week and then ignore everything else. Of course as in most families it was Mother who would do the majority, for which we can read all, of the cooking and the one thing we could have sensibly done was to take over the kitchen for a day. Had we done so of course we would probably ave created and left the most awful mess imaginable so our burnt offerings would be paid for by her labour as she cleans twice the normal chaos.

So with that in mind we offer in this month's issue recipes for the culinarily inept. Traditional saffron buns for those who follow the older traditions and the more conventional treats and three course meals for the rest of us. Of course for those who are truly scare dof the chaos they might bring to her domain (ie they'll ake a mess of the kitchen) then we offer a guide to culinary gifts and treats with our usual guide to what's good and what's not in the kitchen, nutrition in all those treats (now you can truly know how many calories are in those chocolates) and for those who are into saving the world one meal at a time can you really justify splurging on these luxuries (the answer is yes)
