I still remember the day my eyesight deteriorated!!! Yes, I know it might sound a bit mad, and I’m almost certain that it didn’t happen in just one day… but I can actually vividly remember being able to read the blackboard in college on Friday, and the following Tuesday I couldn’t!
My Italian lectures used to take place in one of those large amphitheaters in UCD, the ones that can take 100’s of people. We were studying Dante’s Inferno and Paolo, my lecturer,...
Let’s be honest, many of us take our health for granted. We are so busy with our hectic lives, with work and family that having health checks seems less important (I once delayed my smear test for over a year!!). Without a doubt everyone is more conscious nowadays about the importance of exercise and proper nutrition yet for some reason we tend to put health screening on the long finger.
Since qualifying as a juice therapist, I have found so much joy in edu...
Nut mylks (yes with a Y!) are fast becoming the choice for many people across the world. With a long list of nutritional benefits and much kinder to the environment, many of us are starting to switch to plant based mylks. However not all mylks are created equally and not all have the same ingredients, so ALWAYS ALWAYS read the labels!!
We started our range of mylks simply as I have a very (and I mean VERY) fussy 5 year old who pretty much has a raw vegan di...
Everyone has one quick 5 minute recipe that can really hit the spot when starving. This is mine!. Before, if I was getting 'hangry' I would always end up with a quick sandwich ... even though I knew it would leave me bloated and craving more beige food, it was a handy quick snack if I didn't have much time on my hands. How times have changed! this recipe literally takes the same amount of time as making a toastie but contains more goodness and flavour....
This recipe is always a winner! And i'm sure those of you who attended my workshop last week will agree it tastes amazing.
The trick is to adapt the recipe to whatever you have at home. I actually don't think I have made the exact same recipe twice! (yes, im one of those annoying people who likes to improvise in the kitchen- drives my husband mental!)

End of January and the hype of a super healthy 2018 seems to be on its way out already!!! Let's be honest...we seem to be a nation of 'having great intentions' yet 'we don't want to have to put in the work'... so I'm here to tell you what you do not want to hear!!!! YES... that magic potion and pill you are looking for that will get you healthy and fit does not exist!!!
You may still want to buy it as psychologically it makes you think you are trying really...
On a cold winter’s night there is nothing nicer than a warm chunky soup, a relaxing red juice and some avocado sourdough. Did you know our 5-a-day (recently changed to 7 a day ) in Japan is 17 a day!!?? Yep you read that right! Japan has one of the longest life expectancy in the world and many claim is diet related!
According to a recent enough study the high life expectancy enjoyed in Japan is largely down to the nation's healthy diet, which is super low i...
A SUPER QUICK RECIPE that not only tastes great but is also good for you!
We all know broccoli is the king of vegetables (YES it is really good for you and together with BURPEES, it should be one of your favourite things in life!); mix it with almonds and you end up with a super nutritious meal, packed with vitamins, minerals, protein and antioxidants. The best part? it takes less than 30 minutes to make!
Why should I incorporate cold pressed juicing into my diet when I already eat fruit and veg? You are about to find out!
