Welcome to the Autumn/Winter Newsletter


Welcome to the Autumn/Winter Newsletter from Elaine McGowan Dietetic Clinics. It’s back to school and routine for many of us so it’s a really good time of year to start eating healthily. We have lots of interesting features in this newsletter so we hope you’ll enjoy.

There are a number of patient success stories covering successful weight loss and the continued success of the low FODMAP diet, we think you will find them all inspirational.

There are plenty of practical pointers on how to make healthier food choices and great suggestions for a filling and healthy breakfast.

There’s a reminder of the top tips for weight management that we all too often forget. The Minister for Health has recently introduced some changes to the Food Pyramid used throughout Ireland to help guide healthy eating; we outline these amendments here.

Finally, we’ve included a recipe for a winter warming soup- Spicy Tomato and Butternut Squash- delicious and easy to make. There’s also a tasty omelette recipe with spinach, feta cheese and herbs, it takes minutes to prepare and is filling and nutritious.

Wishing you good health and energy for the winter months ahead.

Best Wishes,

Elaine McGowan Weight Loss Clinics Dublin, Ennis and Limerick
