Welcoming Dietician Without Borders

dwbThe latest addition to my Northern Food Bloggers map is a food blog with a difference – it concentrates on diet but from an informed position, not those faddy magazine types.

Dietitian without Borders looks at food through the eyes of dietician Gemma Critchley who is based in Liverpool where she settled after travelling from Australia via Africa.

She explains:

I’m passionate about practising what I preach, helping others to live healthier lives and helping clear up some of the confusion out there about nutrition by putting it into context and making sense of research and evidence.

Not your average Australian, I lived in Zambia for 6 years witnessing extreme hunger and malnutrition which sparked my interest in health and nutrition from an international perspective.

Having worked and travelled the globe the phrase Dietitian without Borders suits me perfectly! I’m passionate about eating well, keeping active and living a healthy happy life and want to share what I know, do and love with people around the world.

You can also follow her on Twitter @dietnoborders.

* If you belong on the map – drop me a line in the comments or by email to foodiesarahATme.com and tell me a little about your blog. A link back to the map would be appreciated as well.

What you eat for breakfast mapped

eggsI joined in with this Guardian Witness challenge to snap your breakfast this week when I happened to be in the lovely courtyard of Piercebridge Organics enjoying some of their tasty fresh eggs and home-baked teacake (well I am on holiday!).

At the time I did it, there was just one other contribution from a northern food snapper who likewise posted a toast-based option from Lancaster.

Browsing through the gallery of several hundred submissions is an interesting scroll through people’s habits and range of choices.

But when you put them all onto a world map, the project tells a more interesting story.

Who knew someone in Australia chose to eat tacos to start the day and then there’s the Greek salad option for breakfast in Dubai or edible flowers in Russia.
