A reason to exercise, that has nothing to do with looks
I used to be, quite firmly, anti-exercise. I was literally the nemesis of exercise. Sure, I knew in theory that it was supposed to make you feel better, look better, blah blah blah. But hating exercise became a part of my personality so deeply ingrained that it was almost a reflex to wince at the thought.

5 Ways to Stop Hating Mondays
Almost everyone hates Monday. It's the first and official sign that the weekend is over and we pretty much have to go back to reality. We have to turn on our alarm back and go back to work which is not the ideal situation when we are tired and we necessarily don’t want to go.. However, there’s always something positive in each negative situation, so here are 5 reasons why we should not hate Monday and start embracing it!

Antioxidants – Why you need them and how to get more
To say the world of nutrition is confusing is a bit of an understatement.  The sheer quantity of disease-fighting superfoods and life-changing diets has got out of hand (in my opinion).  We not only have too much choice but a whole host of conflicting advice.  This can add pressure to our already over-worked brains, and it’s all too easy to lose motivation (if we don’t see results by the end of January) and resort to old habits.

A Vegan Diet can Improve Your Sex Life?!

Here’s another reason why switching to a plant-based diet can benefit you… and your partner!

By now we have all heard that swapping to a vegan diet can positively impact our environment and our own health. There are plenty reasons why people stop eating meat and diary, whether that be for ethical reasons or simply not liking the taste. However, there may be a less obvious reason you might want to consider eating a plant-based diet or solely just eating more fruit and veg. An idea for Veganuary, maybe?

Eating more plants can do us a world of good but did you know that eating more of the healthy stuff could improve your activities in the bedroom? Well, many plant-based foods can improve circulation to the brain and other parts of the body. Increased blood circulation means that there is a better physical response… a longer response. Foods which have this effect on our body include fruits, cayenne pepper, leafy greens, dark chocolate, sunflower seeds and beetroots. Plant-based foods are known to be great source of Zinc and Vitamin B which are able to improve libido. So by eating more chickpeas, avocados and bananas it could give you the boost you need! Do we need another excuse to eat more avocado on toast?

In 2006 there was even a study conducted which found that people eating more plant-based foods smelled a lot better than those who ate meat. Some people even suggested that men who ate more fruit and veg had sweeter tasting semen. Nice! While, specifically, pineapple can make vaginas taste better. Now, evidence on that part is inconclusive however there’s nothing to lose by trying it out.

It has been found that the cholesterol and saturated fats found in animal products are more likely to clog our arteries and therefore slow down the flow of blood. Yes, that includes the reduced flow of blood to those vital organs down below. Thus leading to impotence in men which isn’t great news for anyone. But fear not, it has been found that by consuming more plant-based meals it can reverse the effects caused by eating animal products.

So on your next date night try suggesting that new vegan restaurant in town to make sure your night ends just as well as it started.
