Good And Bad Foods….Is There Such A Thing?

We’ve all heard or probably even used the term ‘bad’ for certain foods and drinks and ‘good’ for others. But, how do we know what is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, is there a ‘good’ or ‘bad’ food? Does the meaning even exist? Here’s a short task for you. When you think of a ‘bad’ food what […]

Physical activity and exercise are well known for their positive effects on physical health and medical conditions such as heart disease, obesity as well as diabetes.

These carrot fritters are simply AMAZING! and as it’s National Vegetarian Week it would be rude not to share this carrot fritter recipe with you.

Running Tips For Beginners

It’s nice seeing so many people out running at this time of year. The Spring/Summer months often encourage more people to go out running.

The mental health benefits we get from exercise far outweigh any others in my opinion. Whilst exercise and mental health are obviously closely linked, it’s easy getting caught up in the mindset that exercise is only there for fat loss and weight management or to help with stress. But there are more profound benefits of […]
