Which we don't; it turns out I'm among the almost 80% of people who fail to achieve our resolutions. This can have a massive impact on our mental health if we feel like we failed. We try to kick-start this new healthy life, filling the gyms with eager motivation, only to slip back into our old lifestyle before the end of January, full of shame.

It's stressful to read all the articles, and even more stressful to follow all the instructions. And if I don't get it all done? If the sprouts are soggy and the potatoes are burnt? If people cry in horror as they unwrap their gifts? Well, the glaring spotlight of failure will be shining on me.

Eaters At Work Make Me Sick!

I'm not opposed to work pals sitting in the canteen or grabbing a sandwich to eat at their desk because people are pressed for time - but this is a totally different kettle of fish, a kettle of fish that's smells and has been devoured by Jim in accounts and its one that is causing a work place divide between two camps.

When visiting Los Angeles it's hard to decide which area to call home. Are you more Bellini's in Beverley Hills or happy hour in WeHo, the pavements in Downtown or the sand of Long Beach. And if you think area is difficult, the next step is choosing the right hotel. Los Angeles has something for everyone, and on my most recent trip, I discovered that there's no place quite like Farmer's Daughter.

Peanut butter is tasty, versatile, and a great high calorie food for those looking to bulk up. It's also the cheapest nut butter around, and the easiest to find. Providing you're not allergic, peanut butter can be a good addition to the diet of an athlete - but you do have to be careful.

Are Eating Disorders Really Contagious?

Cough, splutter, sniff, nose wipe, BOOM...eating disorder? Surely not. While the general consensus has always been that anorexia and bullemia are a little more complex than the common cold, recent studies suggest new parallels which indicate that, like your snotty nose, eating disorders might be somewhat contagious...could this be true?

BBC Recipes Being Cut From their Website Is More Than I Can Stomach

The Tories have crossed the line in their latest move to impose cuts on the BBC... Ministers are planning to axe several "soft" elements of the broadcaster's output, including travel advice and 'magazine' style features. But the most shocking casualty will be the removal of most of its cooking recipes, which range from a humble burger to a painfully fashionable kale and quinoa sauté.

It's much easier and quicker to order takeaway or pop a ready-meal in the microwave than taking the time to plan, prepare and cook a meal. And this has got me thinking: can ready made products provide the answer? Can they help encourage people to cook at home?

When the British Fashion Council announced London Fashion Week would be moving to Brewer Street, I have to confess I was secretly chuffed.

There is currently a lobster-mania gripping the capital at the moment. London is becoming inundated with lobster restaurants. What was once a luxury, reserved for the fanciest of places (with a price tag to match), is now becoming widely available, as lobster restaurants pop up all over the city.

This delicious pesto dish is ready to eat in the time it takes to cook the pasta and is a great way to use up really ripe avocados. I use a couple of tricks to make this recipe extra special - using avocado creates a light and creamy pesto, and is a healthier alternative to cream or oil.

The One With The Made Up Meals

If I do make something from a recipe book I can't help 'tinkering' with it until eventually it's beyond all recognition of the original. I rarely look at a cookbook anyway, unless it's for the proportions for Yorkshire puddings; for some reason I always have to look that up, or buy Aunt Bessie's, who is known in this house as the patron saint of the roast dinners.
