Essential foods for healthy living

With so many diets, fads, weightless programs and the overall push towards fitspiration, it’s hard to know what you should and shouldn’t be changing in your life. A desire to get healthy is the hardest part, once you have the desire the rest won’t seem like a massive effort but what’s the first thing you can do upon making that realisation? Change your fuel!

Food is the fuel of our bodies and the simplest improvement you can make to your body is to change the fuel you’re putting in. With the addition (or increased intake) of these 3 foods you can be on your way to looking and feeling better than you ever have before. Continue Reading

Vitamins

I’ve never been a fan of taking vitamins or a bunch of pills to make me feel better. My train of thought has always been to tough it out or just eat better, but since becoming vegan I’ve learnt that not everything can be solved with food choices. My health has improved dramatically just by changing my diet but like with any diet change there are certain nutrients you may need that aren’t in your food, or your body naturally does not process as it should. This is where nutritional supplements really make a difference.

Americans spent almost $320 billion on prescription medications in 2011 (source: Take Part) so I’m sharing with you which vitamins I’ve been taking, what they do and how they help me. You should never copy someone else’s prescription whether it be natural or pharmaceutical drugs, and that isn’t my aim, but rather I hope to show you how some of these natural wonders can replace the pharmaceuticals we’re consuming way too much of.  Continue Reading

Stomach Bloating Woman

Prior to becoming vegan I had a long-term relationship with bloating. I would bloat as soon as I ate or drank something and the pain would last for hours, usually easing just in time for my next meal. It was uncomfortable, it impacted negatively on my life and most of all it made me feel & look bad. Due to a major diet and lifestyle change I no longer have those issues but I know many people who do. My recommendation is moving to a plant-based diet, it has worked wonders for me, but I was curious if there were other ways to relieve a bloating gut so I asked celebrity nutritionist and chef, Zoe Bingley-Pullin, for her recommendations.

We know you are going to have a bit of bloating happening over the coming weeks but take these tips into account and the pain won’t be as bad. Continue Reading

I don’t mean to sound like the grinch but I think it’s safe to say that nowadays the festive season is all about gluttony. Food, presents, food, drinking, food …… and more food. Naturally, it’s the worst time to attempt to get healthy or even maintain a healthy lifestyle, but all hope is not lost if you put in a little prep work now.

I have spoken with celebrity nutritionist and chef, Zoe Bingley-Pullin, to get some tips on post-holiday rejuvenation and why it’s important we give our bodies a break. Continue Reading

I have always loathed taking vitamins and nutritional supplements but since becoming vegan I learnt that vitamins can make a big difference to achieving optimal health. The real clincher is that it doesn’t matter what kind of diet you follow, chances are you are lacking some key nutrients.

I asked Warren Maginn, Functional and Nutritional Medicine Practitioner and Educator, to spill the 5 most important things we all need to know.  Continue Reading
