climate change

“It’s up to us to make personal changes to protect our planet and not rely solely on the governments.”

I have an uneasy feeling whenever I throw food packaging in the bin. Yes, it’s a recycling bin but the amount of plastic I throw away just doesn’t feel right. The world seems chaotic. With the natural disasters, political mayhem and general intolerance to each other. I feel like we’re facing difficult times and the universe is giving us a taste of our own medicine. For years I’ve heard environmentalists warning the governments about the effects of climate change. I don’t know about you but I’m not waiting for anyone. There’s power in numbers and we are the one’s to make the changes by the decisions we make.

A Modern Way To Eat by Anna Jones is my go-to cook book for healthy vegetarian (and some vegan) food recipes. Unlike many modern, healthy cook books this includes ingredients you can find at the local supermarket with dishes that are hearty enough to satisfy my hunger! And considering Jamie Oliver has given this his stamp of approval I knew I was onto a good thing when I received this as a gift. View Post

Sorry, pardon WHAT??? Yes, I did say eat your SPF just not the bottle of sunscreen that’s sitting on the bathroom shelf. Let me explain…..

Certain anti-inflammatory foods, high in antioxidants work as a natural SPF. UV exposure is the biggest cause of skin ageing, not to mention skin cancer. Using a daily SPF is a wise choice but why not take it a step further by eating foods that bolster skin’s natural defense against the sun. View Post

There are those days when we wake up feeling a bit meh! It may be the weather, something that’s happening in life or mercury in retrograde serving us some heavy energy. These moments will always come up from time to time and whilst they can lower the mood there is always a chance to turn a bad day into a great day, we just need to try our best. Sometimes is doesn’t work and that’s okay but having solutions to help us along the way can increase the chance of dissolving those feelings as quickly as possible. View Post
