More about this video:

This video is part of my food comparison video series (This Ya That Series) where I compare common foods with a focus on whether one is better than the other from a nutritional point of view.

In the video I breakdown the key common points & differences between the compared foods & also address any myths & misinformation that you may have come across.

In addition, when applicable, I provide useful tips as to how one could have a particular food as part of a balanced diet. Remember all foods have a place in your diet as long as they are consumed in moderation.

If you do have some pre-existing condition that restricts consumption of specific types of food, you may still be able to enjoy them under controlled conditions – do reach out to a certified nutritionist such as myself for more details. 🙂
