Another year is here, which means the usual barrage of January promises to ‘be good’ this year and buckle down to your {insert here} diet regime or exercise plan. Sound familiar? It’s how New Year’s have tended to go for the majority of us… But this year I sense a slight paradigm shift, with the acknowledgement that resolutions half-heartedly made once a year DO NOT work. Particularly when they focus on how we look and the need to improve this to improve how we feel. So in this post we’ll be exploring some anti-typical resolutions that might just give you that warm, fuzzy feeling you were hoping for.

My colon cleansing experience – taking skin & shit to a whole new meaning!

I feel like I have to point out that Madi was mortified when I told her that I had this treatment done, but it is something that I’ve always been interested in trying. I’m a huge advocate for gut health after feeling the difference that probiotics made to my bloating, discomfort and inability to poop regularly. It was a happy coincidence that when I popped into a clinic for information, I just happened to get talking to Joanne Wilcox who is a specialist in this procedure and had a slot free there and then! This week’s post is about what colon cleansing can benefit and my experience, which contains photos and videos so please be prepared!

Eating what YOU want this Christmas

Christmas is a time of plenty. It seems the holiday season these days has become synonymous with eating lots, drinking lots and having all of the things the rest of the year we’re ‘not allowed’.

But how about this year NOT having one last splurge before the January diet kicks in? Why not treat it as a time to really enjoy festive food and drink in a way that still makes your body feel good?

The Morality of Food

Angels and Devils

When deciding what to eat day to day do you choose the foods that you love, that give you the most enjoyment and satisfaction? Or do you see your favourite foods yet deprive yourself? Have foods become divided in your mind into go and stop, fake and real, right and wrong?

For many people foods have become just this; firmly placed into separate camps that either welcome and nourish or tempt and erode health. However, as I’ve touched upon in previous posts (see the dangers of dichotomising food) there is absolutely no need to draw these distinctions and place morality and emotions onto our food. So why is this something that we see every day?
