Overeating and Overindulging – what to do next?

We all do it, even me!  Yes, we indulge just a little too much sometimes, more than we should I guess. Chocolate fudge cake, biscuits, Krispie Kreme….okay I’ll stop there, I’m sure you get what I mean now. Depending on our level of discipline and adherence to diet principles/goals, if we even have any, we…

Juicing

As someone who is very health concious, I have been somewhat late in getting into the juicing craze (well juicing at home anyway).

Digestive Enzymes for a Baby

I’ve been searching everywhere for information! On what you ask? Well you probably guessed by the title, I’ve been trying to find information about administering a baby with digestive enzymes. Unfortunately we have had to put our little man on formula (at 5 weeks of age) as a result of his silent reflux. I read…

I spoke to a friend recently who had a very bad stomach ache, owing probably due to something he ate. This reminded me of a similar situation I had experienced a few years ago. Back in 2005, my family and I went on a holiday to Singapore. As you can probably imagine, it was SO…

Currently I’m in Belgium visiting some family and I came across an amazing shop and also learnt some very interesting information. You guessed right, the shop was a honey shop! And the information that I learnt was that all honey in Belgium is not pasteurised, apparently the pasterurisation of honey is not allowed in Belgium…

Sugar Beverages: Drinks of Mass…

POM Wonderful Review

Yeah, that’s right!  I finally tried it! Cut the long VERY short, the drink is not very tasty, though that doesn’t mean it is not palatable. It’s somewhat of an acquired taste! (Queen’s English accent pleeeeeeeease!) Some people have told me that it tastes like medicine and I can see what they mean. So what are…
