My husband cycles to work. Rain, not when it hails, and of course when it shines. I think it’s been one of the most important factors helping him keep fit and healthy over the years. You see, he hates gyms. And I often have to convince him that ‘gym junkies’ are also nice people and that he’ll really like […]
THAT TIME WHEN YOU’RE SO HUNGRY, YOU’D SACRIFICE ANYTHING JUST FOR SOMETHING TO EAT. Hangry, it’s the new word that describes being angry because you’re so hungry. When you’re hangry you don’t care anymore. You may have avoided gluten all day, but when you’re hangry, you’re like: “Give me some friggin’ bread!” You could’ve quit sugar for weeks […]
No, it’s not with a Nutri-Bullet. On the odd occasion that I flick through the TV channels, a particular infomercial pops up that really gets me riled. I created ‘rant day Tuesday’ at The Healthy Eating Hub – a day specifically set aside for my staff and I to rant about crazy nutrition claims – for the […]
I passionately believe in family meal times. In fact, I prioritise and cherish the family meal time as a fantastic opportunity to spend time with my partner and children and teach them the art of eating well! As a mum, it’s really important to me that my children grow up enjoying fresh, whole foods. I […]

I don’t want to hate my body for the rest of my life. Life is far too short for that. There is too much fun to be had, dreams to be chased and people to connect with for body loathing to leave me miserable till I die.
At the end of this year, I will have studied and/or worked in the field of nutrition for 12 years! I know, I know, I have a young face! It’s all the healthy food I eat! I’ve learnt so much over this time and since I began my study as a fresh-faced, starry eyed 18 […]
Weight loss is hard work. We live in a culture with food everywhere and all around us. Combine that with all the mixed messages about nutrition and weight loss that we hear everyday and it’s no wonder many of us are frustrated with our lack of results. Where are we going wrong? In this episode […]
If you wait until the conditions are perfect to get an idea off the ground, you’ll be waiting forever. This is the principle that pushed me to FINALLY bring this idea to life! So in the spirit of not waiting for perfection, but just taking a step, here is my very rough, super daggy but very […]
Disclaimer: Chocolate is an incredibly delicious tasting food that is high in saturated fat, added sugar and overall energy density. 30g (1 row) of chocolate provides enough energy to power 15 minutes of continuous pushups on your toes (with no rest). This is equivalent to the energy found in two slices of bread. It offers no measurable nutrition in the way […]
