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.

Important Life Factors
There’s never not a ‘right’ time to learn these 7 key factors of life. When you feel like you’re on top of the world or when you’re at the lowest of lows, acknowledging the 7 factors of wellness and understanding how to utilise their purpose to your personal life, will easily enhance the great times and allow you to pick up from the bad ones.   Each factor is just as important than the other, but some will be more relevant and more important in our day to day lives. There’s nowhere to say you have to be perfect at all 7, it’s just a guideline on how to live a healthy, happy and mindful lifestyle.

Banging Plant Based Alternatives to Try Out This Veganuary

It’s Veganuary and what better way to try the plant-based lifestyle than with these incredible Vegan alternatives!

Oatly Creamy Oat Fraiche; delicious spooned onto curries, on nachos, in soups, just about anything and everything. I stock my fridge up with six tubs at a time as they usually have generous expiry dates.

Violife Original Grated; the best melty cheese for topping jacket potatoes, adding into quesadillas or melting onto spaghetti bolognese. Equally tasty is the smoked version.

Oatly Barista; if you’re looking for a plant based milk that works well in coffee and tea, look no further. Oatly Barista works with frothers so there’s no need to give up lattes and cappuccinos.

Gardein Golden Fishless Filets; every vegan fish alternative I’ve tried up until this point has ended up straight in the bin. Believe me when I say Gardein have nailed it with these crispy, tender filets that recreate a chippy meal cooked at home.

Nutritional Yeast; a great source of B12, nutritional yeast gives a cheesy umami flavour to dishes. I use a few tablespoons worth in pasta sauces, ragu and lasagne.

Vego Hazelnut Spread; who knew Nutella has a more decedent rival that just happens to be vegan. Try this on a freshly toasted crumpet and thank me later.

Tyne Chease; by far the tastiest vegan option for a cheeseboard, Tyne Cheases are bursting with flavour and come in options such as truffle, Ethiopian spice, garlic and smoked. I finish a wheel of these off with the exact same delight that I used to feel when scoffing camembert with back in the day.

THIS Isn’t Bacon; I’ve searched high and low for the best vegan bacon and boy, oh boy, have I found it. Crispy, chewy, smoky and perfect in a white roll with a dollop of ketchup or brown sauce. I’m a big fan of the Waitrose Smoky Streaky Slices to go with cooked breakfasts too.
