This Blog was written for one of the most sugar-filled times of year - Easter (2018)! That particular Easter marked the anniversary of me quitting sugar and I want to share with you the science behind our relationship with sugar, especially as a continuation of my earlier video on the gut-microbiome (check out the Gut-Brain Connection). Yes, you guessed it, the bacteria in your gut could have a lot to do with your relationship with sugar! Around Easter 2017 I did a webinar on the Wild Diet (a type of paleo diet) and watched That Sugar Film and realized that I needed to make a change and significantly reduce my sugar intake (which was a lot lower than many people to start with!) If you want to read all about that process then please check out That Sugar Blog. World Health Organisation guideline on sugar More than 3 years ago now the World Health Organisation put out a new guideline recommending that people reduce their intake of free sugars to less than 10% of their total energy intake, with less than 5% (roughly 25 grams) being even more highly recommended as beneficial to health. So what are ‘free’ sugars? This term refers to any sugars that have been removed from their naturally occurring source, and are not consumed as a part of a whole food. Free sugars therefore include any sugars added to

I also talk about the easiest way to reduce your consumption, which is going to improve your health and wellbeing and look after the planet at the same time! It's a win-win!

So here we are with just under 5 weeks to go until Christmas! How are you going? Has the silly season struck your household yet? Is it already difficult to find a blank on your calendar?! If you missed last week’s Blog it was all about sleep and the importance of getting enough good quality sleep, especially at this time of year, if you have any hope of getting through with your wellbeing intact and perhaps even enjoying yourself! Today’s Silly Season Survival Tips are all about food, because, just like sleep, another one of the first things to go when you are super busy and under pressure is making sure that you eat nutritious whole foods from the earth. It can be so much easier to get takeaway or buy pre-packaged meals when you are short on time and have a hungry family to feed during the silly season! The other food related problem at this time of year can be over-eating, but that will be covered in Tip #6! Problems with Quick and Easy Meals The problem with the foods involved in many of the common quick and easy meal options is that they are low on nutrients and high on artificial ingredients. If you buy fast food or something from the supermarket that only requires ‘heating up’ or adding some other basic ingredients they are likely to
So by now you have read all about giving up sugar and avoiding additives, and if you haven't well catch up peeps - click on the links! Clean eating - or getting in touch with my inner hippie - is one of the biggest changes that I have made to my life this year! First year I have ever told my parents NOT to buy me an easter egg! Exploring all the alternative grocery options in my local and not so local area has been fun, as has cooking a lot more stuff from scratch. My kids both love pie and I can make a great family pie that they will gobble up! Yes of course it takes me a lot more time than just whacking a store bought one in the oven but I know exactly what is in it. In this part 2 Blog I am talking about buying organic. This is something, that to be honest, I had always scoffed at before because I had heard all the research about the there being little, if any, added nutritional value in organic produce. This remains true. However, even though you may not get more vitamins and minerals by eating a product that is, or is made with, organically grown matter, you can be sure that you will get LESS chemicals. In order to provide the huge quantities of
