What is your eating style?

One particular part of the book I was intrigued by was the various eating styles people have. Not necessarily the ‘diet’ people follow, but more the how and when people eat their food.

Milo & Cake; happiness!

Recently I have been thinking more and more about this question. Very often in my life, I am consumed with the need to purchase ‘stuff’ in the hope that these items will bring me happiness or some form of contentment.

And because of this, I feel, I need it all. But lately I have come to realise, all of these things or ‘stuff’ I continue to spend money on, are just that, ‘stuff’. They hold no real value, no real significance and will never bring me true happiness. So even if I do someday manage to have it ‘all’, will this bring me happiness?Read More »

While I am all for setting goals, this year I decided to change tact. I started this blog last year as part of my set of New Year resolutions. As a way of staying accountable for my ‘healthier lifestyle’ and it has been an amazing tool for me.

I love to make realistic goals that I can achieve and feel fantastic for. However after last year’s goals and the workload I gave myself to achieve these goals. I decided this year I would reflect on 2015 and identify areas of my life that need to be tweaked, and could be tweaked in an effortless way. Making the process more enjoyable with less pressure.

Low Glycaemic Load (GL), high Glycaemic Load (GL). Low Glycaemic Index (GI) and high Glycaemic Index (GI). It’s all a bit confusing. So today I thought I would give a quick low down on what GL means, and how high GL foods impact the body.Read More »
