Why it’s important to look after yourself in the summer holidays!

Don’t make the mistake of putting yourself last this summer! It’s so easy to do – and I have totally been there. But come September there are loads of mums who have put their health, happiness and businesses on hold and end up feeling frazzled, disgruntled and sad at the lack of happy memories.

The main thing I’d heard was that you should take them after antibiotics, but when I went to investigate I got very confused […]

Is Supplementation Needed If You Are Eating Healthily?

So if you follow all my tips on eating healthily in my ‘Healthy Eating For Rubbish Cooks‘ Series, does that mean you don’t need to take supplements, minerals or vitamins?
