Eating Healthy on a budget – no excuses!

Too many people associate the concept of eating healthy with breaking the bank. I call this an excuse. When I see people buy takeaway and claim that buying some nice fresh produce is not something they can afford every week, it makes me scream. Being raised in a very modest family, I have always been…

I just miss the carb!

How many times have I heard this? There is a perception out there that carbs are pasta, bread, rice. All the “bad” things we take out when jumping on a diet. Here’s the reality of it all: most things you eat that are not protein are pretty much carbs. I am no nutritionist but I…

Withdrawal symptoms for SUGAR are not fun but somehow we need to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I Quit Sugar has a great take on it, thought I would share with you. Some believe sugar is the only taste humans are born craving. The reality is we don’t know how much…

Hydrate for detox, weight loss and clarity!

Yes, water is the cheapest, purest and most unappreciated resource in the world. Most children born in developed countries have no gratitude for the most beautiful source of minerals and refreshing drink you should have. They take it for granted. Of course they do! There are so many alternatives all around us, why should I…

Getting Started!

It is the starting that stops most people. Sometimes you just see what needs to be achieved but you just can’t think of the journey, or you see it and you’re thinking “there is no way I can reach that”. It’s all a bit too hard. Here is a fact: we are all different, and…

Are you a Caffeine addict?

We can always make fun of it but ask yourself: Are you a caffeine addict? By now the side effects would start to wear off. You may have been used to your morning coffee and perhaps one at morning tea or after lunch when you feel really sleepy? If this is the case, then I…

CATS Challenge, let’s do this!

To control your mind first control your diet. I believe the vast majority of our health and mental problems are diet related. In a single strawberry you buy at the supermarket there are 57 different chemicals and pesticides. And if the chemicals don’t get you, SUGAR will. We are an obese nation. Caffeine, alcohol, tobacco…
