Nutrition and Superfoods Course

Before we get started on another important step on our Lifelong Learning journey, have a look at this:

The Cat only grinned when it saw Alice. It looked good-natured, she thought: still it had VERY long claws and a great many teeth, so she felt that it ought to be treated with respect. 

‘Cheshire Puss,’ she began, rather timidly, as she did not at all know whether it would like the name: however, it only grinned a little wider. ‘Come, it’s pleased so far,’ thought Alice, and she went on. ‘Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?’ 

‘That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,’ said the Cat. 

‘I don’t much care where —’ said Alice. 

‘Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,’ said the Cat. 

The Cheshire Cat is right, of course. If Alice doesn’t know where she is heading, and she has no objectives or achievement goal, then it doesn’t matter which road she takes. She can just wander aimlessly and she won’t know if she has reached her destination (her goal) as she never had one in the first place.

This is a very succinct reminder when you step into the Nutrition, Superfoods and Wellbeing world.

We need to set out our route carefully, considering every step we need to take and stick to our route as best as we can. You owe this to yourself.

For example, let’s say this is one of your objectives:

To ensure I adhere to a range of good Superfoods, so that I have a balanced diet.

And let’s say a piece of fruit or a vegetable, not much in the news before, is soon heralded as a ‘Great New Superfood’.

It wouldn’t be wise to just rush out and buy loads of the ‘new Superfood’ and start dishing it up. Why? Because, your next objective on your list should be:

Check it out. Where is the evidence?

This new Superfood may not be as ‘super’ as is made out.

This will be a continuing underlying and very useful theme throughout this course – the need to consider the evidence when you step into the Nutrition, Superfoods and Wellbeing arena. We’ll present this wherever we can.
