Less Choice Might Not Be Such A Bad Thing
I don’t know about you, but my eating habits have definitely changed during lockdown. Availability and acceptance, of course, play a huge part in this, but let’s be honest, food is the biggest excitement. It’s a frequently visited topic of conversation in the house and the greatest joy.  Let’s momentarily glance back to pre-lockdown behaviour. We had become complacent. We could nip to the supermarket (now a major operation) or take an online shop to checkout in under half an hour (and have it delivered the next day, would you believe?).

Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Whether you struggle getting to sleep, staying asleep or even waking up, there’s something here that might make all the difference to your night time routine. Everyone’s mind and body works differently, but the science behind it is all the same. There are just some specific things that really don’t promote a healthy sleep and some that really do. With a little bit of patience and knowledge, you may figure out where you’re going wrong before bed… That conventional cup of caffeine, I mean tea, before bed? Could be the worst decision you make.

Why you need to Marie Kondo your life
Whilst we continue to spend time in isolation, the more we notice around us. You pick up on messy things you may not have noticed until you spend every working day sat in front that hideous, overcrowded bookcase (the one you throw all your clutter onto). With spring creeping towards and more time on our hands, there’s no better time than now to release your inner Marie Kondo and cleanse every inch of your life.

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.
