Vegan, Paleo, Raw…. Which One Is The Best To Follow?

Happy Monday, how was your weekend? Wasn’t the weather amazing on Saturday, truly felt like Summer was on its way.   Nutrition is a big part of what we do, and over the years, different trends have come and gone, and one of the most common questions we get, is “what is the best diet to follow?” So this lead me to writing the below post.   “Methods are many, principles are few, methods come and go but principles never do’’   I have no idea who said this, but it’s a pretty valuable quote. We live in a world of methods. There are...

14 Things I Love – and a giveaway!

I am a very keen fan of Farmers Markets and make it my mission to visit them when I travel to different places. They are my happy place. A place where there is fresh, in season food available from the growers/makers themselves. I try to avoid supermarkets if I can and buy most of my produce from the Sunday Farmers Market. I believe you are what you eat, so the more information you can find out from the producer’s the better. Always ask questions!! If the soil is rich and nutritious, the plants growing in it will be too. If the animals are...

Mind, Body, Spirit – My Take on these!!

Happy Monday,   I hope you all had a lovely weekend,    Life is a subjective experience. How I see life will be very different from you. That doesn’t make me right and you wrong. It’s all about perceptions and what follows is simply what I believe to be true   To quote Bruce Lee  “Absorb what is useful, Discard what is not’’   Nature exists on the laws of growth and contribution. We are no different. The goal is never about achieving the goal, the goal is about the person you have to become in the process In order to...

Michelin Star Chefs & Fat Loss

Happy Monday Everyone! Hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine!   Below are 7 points to consider when working with fat loss. 1 - The best diet   If someone tells you the best diet is fill in the blank then please take it with a pinch of salt. Everybody is different and there is no one size fits all approach. The key is to simply listen to your body and let your results be an indicator as to whether or not you're doing what’s best for you. 2 - You cannot out-train a bad diet There are around 300 calories to a...
