It’s not exactly a secret that we tend to eat badly when we’re feeling tired, busy and stressed. So what should you do when that sugar craving hits and you just can’t fight it any longer? Just grab yourself a chocolate bar!
KIDDING (that would make me the worst personal trainer ever).
It’s no secret that I have a bit of a sweet tooth. A whole mouth full of them actually. But given everything we know about refined sugar and the effects it can have on the body (immune system suppression, tooth decay, unstable moods, ageing skin, weight gain to name just a few) I try not to eat too much of the stuff. Emphasis on the too much – no point pretending I’m perfect.
Cooking has become a little bit of a process for me these days. Every meal must now be photographed at different stages during preparation, then plated up and vetted for taste before I can consider whether it makes an appearance on the blog. Given that I am neither a talented photographer nor cook, you can imagine the number of rather average meals that I’ve been serving up lukewarm of late.
