Bump, brews and birth planning.
It’s January, so that can only mean one thing: nutribollocks season. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Brands will be out in force, trying to sell you stuff to “help” you get healthy or lose weight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Most of the time, this is crap you really don’t need. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For example, any product that claims to alkalise your body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your body doesn’t need help doing this. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It does it all by itself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And if it didn’t? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You’d be dead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also, certain parts of your body, like your stomach, need to be acidic to work properly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Double bullshit. 🐄 💩 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s the same with anything that claims to detox the body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your liver is detoxing your body ALL THE TIME. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Without any help. It’s just what it does. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So you don’t need to do anything special - or buy any expensive teas or tinctures - to detox from the excess of Christmas and New Year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There’s no need to restrict or punish yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just get back to your normal routine, and your body will happily take care of the rest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🙃 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you want to read more of my myth-busting, join my Facebook group to learn how you can make some simple changes that benefit your health all year long. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not a bottle of alkaline water in sight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Promise. 😘 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ P.S. I made this pea, ham and mint soup today. It was tasty AF. Thanks for the recipe @jamieoliver! 👌🏻
Tacos 😍 Believe it or not, there was a time when I'd consider this meal unhealthy or bad for me - because the tortillas aren't gluten-free, and - OMG - all that cheese on the nachos?! Thankfully I'm over that bullshit now. In my latest blog post, I'm talking about why labelling our food like this can hold us back. Click the link in my bio to give it a read.
