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: Inflammation

Inflammation is a bit of a nebulous term that seems to get thrown around in relation to a bunch of health concerns, and really isn’t only what happens when you walk into the open bottom drawer in the kitchen or think you can get between the chair and desk but end up whacking your leg. We know it well – the sore, hot, red and swollen bump that comes from that or any injury. Well […]

Eat This: Paleo, Pegan or Lectin Free

Headline-inducing, outta-a-book type diets are attractive because they tell you what to eat and what not to eat with big promises of helping you feel better, look better, end your pain, help you lose weight, dodge the disease bullet and live a long and healthy life. The list of top 10 diets can change from year to year, with a new one hitting media headlines depending on which celeb has followed it with life changing […]

Eat This: A2 Milk

As I walk through my local natural supermarket, I often take a more leisurely stroll through the aisles to check out what’s new and different. I too get sucked in by marketing, labels saying this and that and then if it grabs me, I read the label more carefully and either choose to bring it home with me, or put it back on the shelf and chalk it up to nice try guys. One time […]

Eat This: Acne

Comedones, pustules, inflamed follicular papules, whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, pizza-face (so bad), what the Brits eloquently call spots, and my kids call them zits. No matter what you call the most common of all skin disorders, acne can be painful, uncomfortable, some sufferers might say unsightly. The harm to self-image, self-esteem and self-confidence is real and can scar for life not only what we see on the outside, but also on the emotional stress and even […]

Eat This: All About Menopause

Menopause, and a more common term that you’ll hear these days – perimenopause – sum up what’s dauntingly known as “the change” in a woman’s life. It typically happens anywhere from her forties onwards – for some even earlier, and for some it comes later. I think it’s a bit like breastfeeding in that this is supposed to be a natural part of life, but “natural” doesn’t speak to how uncomfortable, difficult and painful it […]

Eat This: Vitamin D And Its Magic

Unless you’re living in a dark cave without sunlight and an undiagnosed situation of osteoporosis, you’ve heard of vitamin D and its importance for strong bones and teeth, and more recently, the potential impact on improving immunity. Of course, it’s best known as the vitamin to prevent rickets in children and the often bowed leg photos are from third world countries that have plenty of sunshine, so what’s up with that? There’s often a lag […]
