Eat This: Cholesterol

Have you ever been painted a picture about something that’s just not good. Only to find out for yourself that that dark, bleak and unhealthy picture isn’t actually all that bad? Well that’s my feeling on certain health issues and one in particular, cholesterol. Man, it gets a bad rap. The diagnosis from your doctor brings the unknown front and center. With a likely diagnosis of HIGH cholesterol, the tailspin that ensues with a clear […]

Eat This: Seasonal Allergies and Hay Fever

Itchy eyes, itchy nose, sneezing, runny nose that is like a tap running, or being blocked up and then you lose your sense of smell. Pain around your temples and forehead, headaches and earache and the worst for me is the itchy roof of my mouth that somehow never can be scratched enough because you know, your tongue wasn’t meant to scratch anything! Seasonal allergies and hayfever can seem to hit at various times of […]

Eat This: Could You Have NAFLD?

Your liver is your body’s workhorse and when was the last time that you even considered how it’s doing? If you’re not aware, your liver is your body’s primary filtration system and converts toxins into waste products and then takes out that trash. It cleanses and filters your blood, metabolizes and breaks down nutrients and all medications from anti-seizure, blood pressure, cholesterol and chemo meds to what you took for your last headache and it […]

Eat This: Burnout – Adrenal Failure

We talk about stress like it’s a fact of life these days, and unless you’re living on a desert island with someone fanning you all day, bringing you food and drinks with umbrellas, you’re likely experiencing stress on a daily basis. What happens when it goes on and on and becomes chronic and you just can’t get off the stress merry-go-round? Burnout happens, that’s what. Does that mean that you can’t get out of bed […]

Eat This: The Healthiest Diet

When everything is taken into account, the average adult will try about 126 different diets in their lifetime, according to a poll that I came across recently. That’s a lot of diets, or specific ways of eating with the hopes of reaching a goal weight, as that seems to be the number one reason for putting oneself on a crash diet. And by crash diet I mean a diet that’s far from your usual. I’m […]

Eat This: Food Rules for Rebels

 What does living a healthy lifestyle mean exactly? It’s a bit of an opened ended question, isn’t it? Does it mean you go for a run every day? Do regular yoga and meditation? Do you feel like you tick the healthy box when you eat your greens or have enough fibre? Where would self-care fit? Or 8 hours of sleep? A rather specific point of all of this healthy living stuff is to feel good. […]

Eat This: Protein Powder

Picture this: walking the aisle of a supermarket, health food store, supplement shop or even big box store in the protein powder section. I just felt your energy constrict at the mere thought of scanning what’s on offer, weighing up the claims and promises and then crossing everything that you’re choosing the right one amidst the downright confusion. Those massive tubs of muscle-building, weight-loss-promising, be-healthy-faster powders can not only break the bank, but be a […]
