Roasting is a perfect alternative to grilling -- without the burnt, charred taste! Each year, my summer garden produces a bountiful harvest of eggp...
It's a new month already, and time again for our monthly review of the best new health and fitness studies. This month, brilliant research on obesity, preferential activating different muscles during squats and, of course, Pokemon Go all make an appearance!
Most of us don't know what an appropriate portion should look like and, following today's article in the BBC, we're under-reporting the amount of calories we eat by almost one-third. Apart from the 80g portion of fruit and vegetables we should eat a day, there are no official UK guidelines on portion sizes. With this in mind, here is my easy guide for understanding portion sizes and it's based on a simple tool - your hand!
While the PJs may not be intended for children, it still begs the question: are 'cheat day' PJs appropriate women of any age? The simple answer is, no.

Green tea is a worthwhile training aid which can supplement your health and fitness loss goals when used correctly. Now, a specific variety of green tea is gaining popularity, which many believe to be stronger and more potent than the standard blend.
Why would you want to watch videos that make you angry? Well because as humans we have a nasty little habit of enjoying the sensation of hate, anger, injustice - we love a good old fist shake and finger point. We love the blame game, and most of all we love to feel like we can't affect change.
Lizzie Armitstead isn't the first athlete to achieve Olympic success on a non-meat diet. In fact there are a number of successful vegan or vegetarian athletes, including ultra-runner Scott Jurek, pro triathlete and ultra-runner Brendan Brazier, and US Master's Running Champion Tim Van Orden.

In this version of the recipe, I add cannellini beans to boost protein, fiber and nutrition. Cannellinis are also known as fagioli, white kidney beans and haricots blancs. The variety, popular in Italian, Greek and French cuisines has a creamy texture and a mellow, nutty flavor...
One can only hope that the British public won't be deterred from making a nutritious green smoothie once in a while due to bad editing and lazy research.
This has to be one of my favourite dishes that I ever created! A one-pot wonder, infused with Mediterranean flavours. Serve straight from oven to table...
For decades, the dominant diet craze was all about low-fat. People seemed to think that consuming fat just made us fat in turn. In the last few years, the benefits of healthy fat have become generally accepted. People now look to fatty foods such as avocado, oily fish, nuts and coconut oil to reduce risk of disease and lower blood cholesterol levels.
I must admit, I get increasingly frustrated with some of the reports I read in our papers these days. Take a recent article that appeared in The Daily...
Let it be known that adaptogens are coming to the UK big time. Their popularity is going to be bigger than spirulina... bigger than kale even, because ancient herbal wisdom is back in business baby!
