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 – … Continue reading

Out Of My (food) Comfort Zone…

Out Of My (food) Comfort Zone...

I’m in the US right now and so far I’ve travelled 7 cities in 14 days, so if  jet lag, followed by jumping planes, trains and automobiles every couple of days hasn’t been enough to upset the apple cart, contending with trying to find real, whole food on the run in some places, has been.  When I travel, I try to eat just like I do back home  – the same as I recommend in my book, Eat Yourself Healthy.  My digestive system has grown accustomed to it’s usual Green Goddess juice  or super food power smoothie first thing of a … Continue reading

This year’s been a pretty hectic one for me at work, I have been toiling away on some pretty big projects, which has meant upping the anti as far as long days, lots of jumping on and off planes and missing many a week end, in order to get my projects off the ground.  But having suffered and recovered from two Auto Immune diseases – Lupus and Hashimoto’s, that were ultimately triggered by stress,  I am very strict about setting boundaries and respecting my body.  I guess this decision for me comes easily now, after losing my health for so many years along with the freedom to … Continue reading
