Thinking of Food… in the Long Term


  How much thought do you put into the food you’re about to put into your mouth?

The foods we eat are based on a range of reasons. The most common reason is for the taste. Foods which taste nice make… Continue Reading

I’m predicting the keto diet will continue to gain popularity, and based on my Instagram feed, more and more people seem to be jumping on board. I… Continue Reading

Three ways to Feel Better by Bedtime

This holiday season I ate my way through several Christmas parties, numerous office treats and a Christmas day that felt like one long meal right into Boxing Day. They say that good food is one of life’s greatest pleasures and I have well and truly indulged, leaving no treat left un-tasted. However,… Continue Reading
