After a boozy night in London recently and listening to a podcast with Ruby Warrington, founder of Club SÖDA NYC, I started to analyse my drinking habits. In this post I ask myself: why do I drink? I've come up with three reasons which got me to really reassess my attitude to a night out.
This week I've got another guest on the blog for you: the lovely Rachael O'Hegarty from Yoga Sound System. I'm teaming up with Rachael in January for the second of my Health Bloggers Community events in Dublin to host a supper club, with yoga, live DJ and a delicious three course meal. I ask Rachael a few questions ahead of the event to find out more about her, what got her into yoga and her relationship with food.
I think we're all in agreement that there's a lot of nutribabble out there. Knowing who to trust is something I've talked about a lot on the blog and is one of the reasons I keep writing and sharing. So infographics are my total saviour, because they turn sometimes quite complicated principles, into something I can actually visualise! Here are my top 5 which really help explain complex or confusing topics in the world of nutrition.
I've recently partnered up with Asquith London to write a few posts for their #AsquithWorld blog. The first of these picked out 5 of my favourite Nutrition & Wellness podcasts. But I wanted to go one step further for the readers of my blog and give you an even wider selection of the stuff I listen to.
Wow. What a night! Last month I was absolutely honoured to be awarded Best Free From & Illness Recovery blog 2017. The whole experience has really made me reflect on my place in the blogging world over one year on from starting The Flourishing Pantry. Here are a few of my thoughts and photos from the night.
It's far too easy these days to rely on Google for answers. But you cannot guarantee that the results you find on the first page are actually authored by people who are qualified to answer your query. So I took a course run by the highly regarded Monash University through Future Learn called Food As Medicine. Here are a few things I discovered.
Slipping from healthy eating blogger to crazy hippy girl is exactly the sort of worry I might have had when I started changing my diet and focusing more on my health. And until this month I really believed that yoga was more about relaxation than exercise. But the universe has conspired to change my opinion...
Last year on the blog I wrote an article very proudly sharing with you all that I’d managed to lose a stone on a ‘yeast free’ diet and that I was keeping it off.So now I feel like a statistic about people that can't keep their weight-loss off when I tell you that one year on from writing that post I have in fact put back on all that weight.
We're back for a final installment chatting all things gluten with the lovely Lea from Can Eat Attitude. This week we're finishing up with a bit of science and talking about whether bloggers need to be responsible for the messages they are spreading on whether or not to eat follow a gluten-free diet.
I spend a lot of time on Instagram and as a result I spot lots of lovely accounts with stunning food and photography on an almost daily basis. You want to know the crazy thing? Sometimes these accounts have really, really small followings. So here I'm celebrating 10 under 10k that you really must start following.
In a new four part series I'm chatting with Coeliac Lea Tierney from Can Eat Attitude. Completely confused about whether gluten is right for me, I talk to someone for whom it really is poison. In this first installment I discover what's Lea's attitude to people going gluten free if they're not Coeliac. And errr... that includes me!
