Looking at the success of fad diet books alone, we might convince ourselves we need to lose weight- and... fast! It's always Fast! Here, I'd like to use some of the findings in cognitive neuroscience and the neurobiology of eating behavior to address, specifically, why fad diets don't work.
When dividing the base and top chocolate layers, make sure you have equal amounts for top and bottom. Use a serrated knife to cut when ready....Keep in the freezer, to prevent you from eating too much, and the chocolate melting!!!
Breakfast is fast becoming the nations favourite meal, or so word on the street tells us. Speaking for myself I know I am breakfast obsessed. With pop ups such as the Porridge Cafe in London which serves only porridge all day it seems like I am not the only one with this breakfast obsession.
This meat sauce is a good recipe to freeze up to three months. Defrost thoroughly, then return to a saucepan and reheat gently, bubble for 10 minutes and use in other recipes.
I love Easter, and what's best is that it comes with a long weekend. With the weather picking up there's so many things you can do to make the most of the break. I like to make the best of both worlds with a day trip to some of the fabulous towns, villages and countryside close to London.
We all want to look good throughout the year and summer represents a fresh new beginning, where we start to take off our winter layers. Summer's lighter layers and looks however remind us that the stodgy food of the festive cold season has left us with unwanted weight gain and dull looking skin, hair and eyes.
Most root vegetables are available year round, but the peak season is fall through spring, with the exception of beets, which taste best during summer through fall. However, turnips and rutabagas taste best during the winter months.
If you give your ideas the energy, focus and belief that they require, you will bring them to life. All of us have ideas, some however are never birthed and left remaining in our minds, but others inject life into those thoughts and the process of creation truly begins.
Recovery is not a straightforward process. There are plenty of treatment options available (unfortunately at a price, but hopefully this will change...but they do exist), and some treatments are more appropriate for different types of eating disorders, others suit a person better.
If I could have things any other way, I would not choose to spend so much time planning my meals, working out my feelings to avoid potential anxiety attacks later on in the day, and all the money I and my parents have spent on therapy over the years.
I didn't really know what my solution would ultimately be but I had a hunch to look for clues around my diet. The newest thing I'd been hearing was that everyone with an autoimmune disorder should be gluten free. My favorite food being pizza, I was very resistant to making the commitment.
With Valentine's day upon us it can be easy to overdose on an array of refined sugar products disguised in cute little heart shape packages and gift...
We all know that oats are good for us - they have long been linked to healthy eating, and are one of those staple foods that we rely on when we need something that is going to fill us up, and keep us fuller for longer.
It's sugary, creamy, and decadent and because it's loaded with way too much sugary processed junk, it leaves you feeling a little bit ashamed, sad, and slumping after your sugar high of eating a whole pie.
Sugars are added to the majority of processed foods that we eat every day, such as breakfast cereals and ready meals. Worryingly, many consumers are unaware they are used in such large quantities.
I love it that people want to juice everything in the house, be healthier, more in tune with their bodies and connected with those around them than with a pinging contraption. But honestly, when did it all get so extreme?
