Meet the amazing Barbara Cox

How I wish I’d known a nutritionist when I was growing up in Canada. As a junior skating champion I had a top pair of skates, a top coach and top parents who unwaveringly woke up before sunrise to drive me to daily practice sessions. But I also had the energy dips, the light-headedness and the lethargy that people experience when they miss out on a good night’s sleep and consume a diet of fast food and fizzy drinks. My career as a sportswoman began to falter, so I hung up my skates at eighteen.

It was on a working holiday in Australia in my early twenties that I really began to appreciate good food. I especially loved the wide variety of cuisines on offer in the restaurants of Sydney. There I met David – my future husband – and together we fell in love with the spicy tastes of Thailand, China and India, and the Mediterranean flavours of France, Italy and Greece.How I wish I’d known a nutritionist when I was growing up in Canada.
