How to exercise smarter not harder!

When it comes to exercise, I’m not unlike most folk in that I  need to do something I enjoy, to ensure I stick to it. Long gone are the days when I used to pound the pavement and sweat it out in a stinky spin class, to the point I would stumble side ways off the bike gasping for breath!

  One of the questions I get asked the most, is how to stay healthy when entertaining.

What causes Hashimoto's and other weird Autoimmune diseases

  It seems many of you are suffering from, or at least know someone who has some form of Auto immune (AI) disease. The truth is 1 in 5 people living in the western world suffer from one of the 80 existing AI diseases and this statistic is rising, including a doubling in the rate of Multiple Sclerosis in the last ten years. Autoimmune diseases occur when the immune system loses the ability to detect self from non self and consequently launches an attack against it’s own healthy tissues or organs. The hyperactive immune activity triggers a chronic inflammatory response, through

  The approaching warm summer evenings are synonymous with alfresco dining and BBQ’s.  So if you want to combine the two and indulge in a little seafood (a lighter  protein option than red meat & perfect if you are in the initial 2 weeks of my 28 day Eat Yourself Healthy  program, then this recipe will be a real crowd pleaser.  As a Nutritionist, I believe how food tastes, is just as important as nutritional value, so try this sauce at your next BBQ – it’s so versatile so you can serve it with organic chicken, seafood or vegetarian dishes as well.
