Eat This: Better your Brain

All nicely tucked into your skull, weighing in at a mere three pounds, your brain is essential to every breath, heartbeat, thought, memory, emotion, touch, motor skills, vision, the temperature you feel; internally and externally, every hunger pang and every single process that regulates your body, yep, it’s controlled by your brain. Think of the brain as the most complex computer that controls all bodily functions. Along with the brain, there’s a network of messages […]

Eat This: Low sugar diet

So hopefully you know sugar isn’t your best friend from a health perspective, but you might be in denial because man it tastes good, right? The thought of giving it up leaves most people really on the fence and maybe not doing as much as they can for fear of sacrificing taste and missing out on what they love to eat. Avoiding sugar isn’t the easiest thing to do either as it’s in packaged foods, […]

Eat This: Are you sitting down?

Are you sitting down? I’m not asking because I have bad news to share, but that the position that you’re in right now as you sit could seriously be hampering your healthy efforts. The time that we now spend sitting; at a desk, driving, watching TV, scrolling on the phone, sitting on a bus or train, or even on a plane, well anywhere else you can sit, is actually detrimental to our health. With sitting […]

Eat This: Regenerative farming

You’ve heard the saying, you are what you eat, right? Well, I know I don’t look like the blueberries I had for breakfast, but I do know that my cells are happier for the vitamin C, vitamin K1, manganese and potassium and plant antioxidants, my gut loves the fibre and my mouth loves the sweet taste.

Eat This: Concussions and brain injuries

We’ve all likely had a knock to the head at some point in our lives, and ended up with a sore noggin for a bit, whether it is a bruise to the flesh or a nagging headache. But then there’s the trauma to the head and brain that can be impactful to day-to-day life and life-changing but not necessarily for the better. That is an area where, in my experience, more of an integrated approach […]

Eat This: DNA Test Results

We go through life being tested; tests at school, driving tests, health checks and blood tests, and some of the results of many of these tests can be life-changing, would you agree? Well at the beginning of 2022, I voluntarily submitted my spit – yes I filled the tube to the line with a bunch of watery saliva that ranks up there as the easiest bio-fluid to extract and use for DNA testing. This isn’t […]
