The lovely folks at Buy Whole Foods Online recently sent me some cashews to test out a few new recipes. I got so excited searching for inspiration and trying out new ideas that I’ve turned my explorations into a couple of blog posts for you including this round up of amazing cashew based recipe inspiration.
In this blog post I’m explaining what eating seasonally means and discuss four reasons I think are pretty compelling for giving it a go.

Recently I’ve become completely obsessed with getting more protein in to my diet. It’s a nutrient that gets a lot of attention, often in a really unhealthy way. But there are loads of natural ways to add protein into your diet. With simple swaps and a bit of consideration you can increase your intake very easily.
The biggest reason I hear people say they ‘can’t’ eat healthily is time. But guess what? We’ve all got 24hrs in the day.

I love writing. You might have guessed if you’ve been here often enough. My blog posts are never short and even then I’ve cut them down and hacked back a lot that wasn’t necessary!

Or get anything out of? Or would I think it was a waste of time?

I’m a total word-nerd. So I’m starting a series on the blog called Wellness Words. Taking a closer look at the vocabulary we use in the wellness industry and trying to better understand its origins and message, without getting caught up in preconceived ideas. First up: WELLNESS. What does it mean to you?
I'm very aware at the moment that my blogging is becoming increasingly further and further away from where this all started: food. I wanted to share my journey and the evolution of my approach to ‘health.’ I wonder whether you too can imagine yourself taking this journey, or maybe it’s that you’re already on it.
