Understanding The Confusing World Of Nutritional Facts

On driving home from work last night I was listening to a nutritionist being interviewed on Steve Wright’s afternoon show on Radio 2.

The nutritionist gave valuable information, albeit a little confusing, in what percentages and grams of carbohydrates, protein and fats you should eat on a daily basis.

However, I don’t recall her actually giving any kind of links to resources you can go to in order to follow up, or read more about these specific nutritional details.

When I started out researching and reading the vast amount of information on the internet regarding healthy living I sometimes found it to be confusing and conflicting.

That’s when I decided to find out exactly the right, recommended details for myself.

Then it became a passion and I started studying it and gaining professional qualifications. I then took the steps to write about those specific details here within the healthy living pages.

I hope that you’ll find what I have written useful.

Anyway, here’s today’s recipe. Delicious little low calorie sweet pecan nut biscuit bars that simply taste mmmmm!!
