My relationship with my body has changed. I used to consider it as a servant who should obey, function, give pleasure. In sickness, you realise that you are not the boss. It is the other way around. / Federico Fellini /

How many of us have experienced this? We push our bodies to their limits. We think we are indestructible. We think we are eternal. The reality is that our bodies can only take so much. Drinking, smoking, poor food choices, stress, exposure to toxins, strenuous physical activity, lack of sleep…these all contribute to our bodies eventually screaming out. “STOP” Much like Federico Fellini, my relationship with my body has changed.

Ceres Organics Herb Salt

Want a healthy alternative to your processed aromatic seasonings for your meats and veggies?⠀⠀ For a long time, I had been using powdered chicken, veggie or beef powdered stocks full of anti-caking agents, flavour enhancers and artificial preservatives to season our cooked meals.

Sugar Addict.

Are you a sugar addict? It’s hard not to be when sugar is added to so many of our food and drinks; often, we don’t even know it. It’s already naturally occurring within most of our daily fruit intake, so why add it? Because it makes everything taste better. And it’s addictive as it causes a dopamine release to the brain, so we want more and more. And so we buy more and more sugar-laden products keeping big business in…

Zen your pantry – #pantrydump challenge

Does your pantry look like this? Mine doesn’t yet, but it’s what I’ve been striving for. Years ago, during a gym assessment, my personal trainer made one statement which stuck in my mind, “If you want to come to the gym to get fit, you need to start from the inside out. At home, look in your pantry and dump anything that is in a packet that has ingredients you don’t recognise or can’t pronounce”. This has stuck with me,…
