I’d never known anyone who had psoriasis (well, who spoke openly about it) but my mum was diagnosed with it last January. Then a friend mentioned this tv show she’d watched in the UK called Food Hospital and they talk about how the diet can exacerbate or reduce symptoms of certain diseases. So I decided […]

I recently received an email from a reader who had visited and enjoyed my blog and wanted to contribute a guest post on how nutrition plays an important role in the battle against cancer. I did a biology degree at university, and one of my modules was the study of the biology of disease where […]

Firstly, I must apologise for my unexpected break from writing posts – I have been a bit under the weather and out of sorts recently. I thought I’d do a little post on the types of people at the gym – this is just a bit of fun and isn’t intended offend anyone! The “Hogger” […]

Last night I went out with a friend for sushi, and I forgot how much I LOVE sushi, how healthy it can be and how amazing it tastes. Socialising with healthy food – perfect.

I’m not sure if anyone will actually be interested in my current workout, but maybe someone is! My current workout is done a lower body/upper body split, and I try to change it every 6-8 weeks to keep it fresh – although I quite like this workout so maybe I’ll keep it as is and […]

Firstly, I’d like to apologise for my lack of posting this week – a friend is visiting from out of the country until Tuesday night and I have been out and about all day with her doing the usual sightseeing, etc. and just haven’t been able to make the time for the blog. Poor effort […]

coconut

Since I made the tofu pudding, I have been trying to figure out what to do with the rest of the can of coconut milk, so I thought I’d try to make something with it. I was just going to make a Thai green curry, but I didn’t really fancy having to make the curry […]

When you’re trying to eat clean, you don’t want to feel like you’re missing out. I’ve seen two different recipes for chocolate pudding – one uses silken tofu, and the other uses avocado. This one uses silken tofu and I adapted it from this recipe. This made 6 ramekins, but it depends on how much […]
