What should I be eating?

I get asked this question a lot, but it is such a loaded question! Before I answer, let me just say that I really dislike the word should – it can provoke feelings of pressure and urgency, and for all of us already juggling so many other important areas in our lives, such as family commitments, work commitments, life and financial pressures, the word should often feels like one more huge thing to add to our ‘to-do’ lists, which can add an additional layer of stress. So, back to food – rather than telling you what you should be eating, I want to share some thoughts and ideas around how our food choices can either help or hinder our health goals, and give you ways to incorporate more nourishing foods into everyday life (without the stress), to support your ‘return to health’ journey.

How the Gut is Connected to Chronic Health Conditions

Hippocrates, who lived between 460BC and 370BC, stated that ‘all disease begins in the gut’. That was well over 2000 years ago, however, modern medicine is only just beginning to acknowledge the connection between what is going on in the digestive tract, and the many

You are what you digest and assimilate

Back in the early 2000’s there was a show on TV called ‘You are what you eat’. As a Functional Nutritionist, I would have liked to add a little to the title. I would have called the show ‘It’s not what you eat, it’s what
