Eat This: The worst ingredients

Reading the label of any packaged food can look like it needs a chemistry degree. I’d hazard a guess that if you do turn over the box or crunchy plastic bag of what you’re wanting to know more about, and see sodium benzoate, or carrageenan or even artificial flavouring tartrazine not knowing exactly what it means doesn’t lead to you putting it back on the shelf … or does it? Why isn’t the whole label […]

And yes, it’s the end of October, but whenever you are listening to this episode, my nutritionist […]

Eat This: TMJ

What is the most important nutrient that we need for a long and healthy life? I’m going to say that you’re not going to get it, but I’m going to circle back to answer that shortly.

Eat This: Mouth Breathing

You know when you take a deep breath in, does it happen through your mouth or your nose if you’re not instructed on which … Yes, we breathe in and we breathe out.

Eat This: Why bother with breakfast?

The alarm clock goes off, you get up, out of bed and what unfolds next? Shower, workout, meditation, hot water and lemon, coffee is a no brainer for most, then I’m sure checking your phone for updates falls in there somewhere, but then what about breakfast?

Well, because I want to introduce you to what I believe you need to know more about, to take control of your health.

Eat This: The Vagus Nerve

Despite my willingness to always be learning something new, there are times when I need to hear something, or be hit over the head with it a few times before I get into it.
