My job is all about food, and I am overwhelmed by the conflicting messages surrounding what constitutes healthy eating. In just one Continue reading »Aaarrgghhh! Stop boring me with healthy eating!
Not the kind of brain drain where the brightest sparks clear off to other countries and contribute to other economies. The kind where your own thoughts clear off to some far off place that you can no longer access. I’m talking Dementia. A dreaded D word (another dreaded D is for Diet, but I’ve already Continue reading »Stop Brain Drain
So here I am, in a reflective mood on holiday in Kos in 2017. The holiday was nearing its end, and we’d had a really great time. So what has this got to do with me kidding myself?

It seemed like a natural step to take Continue reading »Time on my hands
All these food rules. I’ve heard of people making themselves really ill by literally just eating protein and very little else. Carbs or carbohydrate rich foods, have now become synonymous with celebrity fad diets. Fad diets full stop. What do you think of when someone says they don’t eat Continue reading »Low carb or what?
Spiralizers are the kitchen gadget at the moment. But have you been put off buying one due simply to the size of the thing?! Usually they are huge.

A New Year. A clean slate. Lets look forward to a lifetime of good health. My goal for this year is to turn back the clock.
