Why I need to detox…

Why I need to detox...

  So you may recall I have spent the past couple of months gallivanting across America for work, which was all very exciting , but exhausting at the same time, and the travel, combined with the fact I was in America – land of GMO foods and high fructose corn syrup,  certainly posed it’s challenges when it came to sticking to healthy eating.  For me it wasn’t a case of not actively trying to eat healthy food, but rather the fact I was stuck on aeroplanes and in air ports every few days, along with hotels that offered a gluten fest for breakfast each day –

Whatever you do…READ YOUR LABELS people

Whatever you do...READ YOUR LABELS people

I’m currently in the United States for work which means discovering new foods and familiarising myself with new brands.  All too often it’s so easy to pick up a product based on what’s displayed on the front of the pack – and be lured by terms such as  ‘organic, no added sugar, fat free, low GI, non GMO, Gluten Free, dairy free’…. the list is a mile long! But whilst some of these terms may represent a genuinely healthy product, it’s not until you turn to the back label, that you will discover the FULL story about what’s really contained

My Healthy LA Food & Fitness Trail

My Healthy LA Food & Fitness Trail

When I visit a new city, I like to immerse myself in the local food and culture as much as possible, to get a feel for the local way of life, so in the lead up to my trip to LA for work, I have to admit, I was a liiittle bit sceptical about how well LA and I would gell.  I mean let’s face it, LA is more renowned for face lifts and Ferrari’s than the type of down to earth and genuine kind of vibe I prefer to connect with.  BUT….after just a few days in the beach side

Top 10 tips for staying trim, dining out

  It’s an age old quandary….how can we be healthy and still dine out?  Well the good news is YOU CAN!  It’s all in the CHOICES you make. I know for many folk, eating out for corporate lunches and dinners can all be part of ‘the job’, but eating out doesn’t have to lead to the expansion of the waist line.  Even the most hardened fine diner will struggle to argue it’s difficult to stay trim and eat out,  if they stick to these simple rules. So follow my tips and you won’t go wrong! Choose your restaurant wisely –  Avoid the obvious like the fast food

My Bali Food Trail

My Bali Food Trail

  I recently took some much needed ‘time out’ to visit my favorite home away from home, Bali. It was my first trip back after I spent nearly 6 months living there in 2011 to make a decent dent on my upcoming book.  Perhaps one of the things that resonates most with me, aside from Bali’s laid back pace of life, is the organic and whole food movement that has really taken off there since my maiden voyage 13 yrs ago. I feel like I am in whole food heaven when I am in Bali and I swear I eat twice as much because the

My Healthy ‘New York Food’ Trail – eating healthy in the big apple

My Healthy 'New York Food' Trail – eating healthy in the big apple

  For the past 6 weeks I have been in the United States researching how the Yanki’s like to eat and although the press and TV provide a pretty good insight from a far, it’s not until you spend a decent period of time in their country, that you come to experience the all American diet firsthand. It’s easy to understand why American’s (like the rest of the west) are falling victim to a malnutrition epidemic that is inducing every preventable lifestyle disease and illnesses, including diabetes, heart disease irritable bowel syndrome, ADHD, depression and arthritis. Too many Americans are

Tips to keep the waist line down travelling

Tips to keep the waist line down travelling

Let me ask you something…. what do you eat when travelling or stuck waiting in an airport terminal? Do you grab a bagel, a burger, a boost juice thick shake, a BLT sandwich? Or perhaps you see the airport transit lounge as a place to indulge in the dirty bird (aka KFC) or the golden arches?…..Or maybe it’s the bucket of hot chips that suck you in every time? Have you ever noticed that when travelling you tend to go for indulgences that you ordinarily wouldn’t touch? I know for me travel and airport terminals can trigger a kind of
