Cocoa or Cacao? Supercharge your Chocolate!

  Firstly and foremost, Happy New Year! If like me, you have over indulged and enjoyed the Christmas period to the maximum, then you might be thinking about hitting the health train to get back on track with your health and fitness goals.

My Five Easy Tips for a Healthier Lifestyle

I am by no means a health and fitness guru, I dislike feeling out of breath, love eating and am partial to a glass (or 3) of wine and so it was no surprise that after a summer of pure indulgence I found myself feeling lethargic, unhappy and the most out of shape that I had ever been. I was moving…
