Eat, drink but be wary of Resolutions!

How can you even think about exercise right now?!

Are they more familiar? But what are they and why am I mentioning them? Well, you’re probably eating most (if not all) of them in your diet! Do you even know […]

Is this one of the healthiest nutrients on the planet?

As I write this, I’ve just finished eating my porridge but then I’m not too choosy when I have my porridge, it’s sometimes 3.30 in the afternoon!! I don’t have ‘normal’ porridge though – it’s more like a ceremony preparing it and then it takes about 15 minutes to eat! Why? Well, when you have […]
