Next, nutritionist Lianne Phillipson joins to talk about achieving balance on the inside through a healthy diet. Host of the popular EAT THIS podcast and best-selling author Phillipson explains how to support ageing bodies with the right diet, which includes eating colourful fruit and vegetables and a healthy amount of protein. She explains the science behind why starting the day with a good breakfast is the foundation for balanced energy throughout the day.

The Take 5 With RBC features president and CEO of RBC Royal Trust, Leanne Kaufman, who talks about incapacity — a topic no one likes to think about but is an essential conversation for all families. She explains why it’s important to talk through “what-if” scenarios, to plan who will take care of you in case of incapacity and why having a backup plan makes practical sense.
