Festive Self-Care; how to have fun without feeling overwhelmed or overindulged

The festive time of year can be as fun as it can stressful, when a comfortable balance between pleasure-rich indulgence and guilt inducing over-indulgence feels like a complete impossibility. Too often, self-care routines feel rigid and unsustainable, and certainly not feasible when parties and family gatherings monopolize our schedules. Not being one to miss out, […]

Beauty in Simplicity: 4 ‘must-Be’ essentials

In the search for the ‘Holy Grail’ of all things beauty and wellbeing, we have journeyed far and wide, and whilst we’ve discovered some amazing superfoods, lotions, potions and goodness knows what else, we seem to have forgotten our roots, with the complex (and expensive) taking precedence over the natural and simple. Ironically, this causes […]

What Your Immune System Needs You To Know

I was in Helsinki a few weeks ago and the weather abruptly turned from ‘just needing a jacket’ to freezing cold and thermals being an essential.   This sudden change definitely gave my inner thermometer a shock, especially after ten years of living in the desert, and seemed to be the catalyst for everyone around […]

The Real Game Changer

I watched The Game Changers last week, the latest documentary highlighting diet in the context of meat vs plant based eating. This one features athletes and well known personalities like Arnold Schwarzenegger, all who have reportedly adopted a predominately plant based diet and felt the benefits.  Whether they’re vegan or just avoiding meat isn’t entirely […]

Nutrition for Empaths

Nutrition for Empaths I’m not a lover of labels. They can easily restrict and disempower, rather than liberate and empower, and ’empath’ territory definitely falls prey to this in so many ways. Basically, an ’empath’ is someone with empathy, which is the capacity to understand or feel what another person is experiencing.  In my case, […]

Food Sustainability; is Less More?

I’ve been backwards and forwards to Helsinki enough times this year to make becoming a Finnair member worth my while. Whilst I’m here the topic of work conversations is largely focused on food sustainability and improving access to healthy food for low income families. This is currently a massive area of challenge, especially in the […]

Our biggest deficiency & why diet isn’t the problem

I’m passionate about the healing potential of food when intuitively selected and eaten with love and appreciation, for both the food and your body. So what I’m about to suggest is definitely not something I expected when I first started practicing as a nutritional therapist 12 years ago. In fact, it’s something I’ve been reluctant […]

Hip And Healthy Article: Pesce-Vegan

Diet drama was taken to a whole new level recently, as vegan influencer Yovana Mendoza was filmed eating fish, in an incident subsequently coined ‘Fishgate’. So when Hip and Healthy asked me to cover a piece for them on an emerging ‘pesce-vegan’ trend I was more than happy to contribute, as since this incident more […]
