I just wondered whether there was anyone that could help with my query? My blog post doesn't show under my name as some reason it's linked to a US contributor platform that I created by mistake.

If parents can have such an impact on their child's well-being surely it's time more adults begin to take responsibility for their own health, thereby encouraging their children to follow suit?

Students Fight for Veggie and Vegan Options at University

Ciara Cohen-Ennis | Posted 01.06.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Ciara Cohen-Ennis

2016 is the biggest ever year for vegans, with brands such as Quorn releasing egg-free products, Guinness planning to create a vegan beer, and Ben & Jerry's announcing dairy-free ice creams. Universities are generally known as places that advocate this sort of forward thinking and embrace positive change. Why then do so many British universities seem so behind on providing vegetarian and vegan options in their student unions?

Dear Vegetarians - Go the Extra Mile and Go Vegan

Elena Orde | Posted 20.05.2016 | UK Lifestyle
Elena Orde

It's easy to realise that an animal had to be harmed to get a piece of meat onto your plate. But other products, such as dairy and eggs, are one step removed from the animal who produced them and are wrongly thought of as innocuous, friendly byproducts. This couldn't be much further from the truth - prepare yourself for some pretty grim facts.

Chocolate Orange Oatmeal

Poppy Velosa-Ayres

Over the years I have tried to get better at eating breakfast and I am much better but I still do need something to excite me to get me ready to eat in the mornings. I will never be someone who eats the same breakfast day in, day out, that just terrifies me.

I had to check my calendar this morning to make sure we're actually halfway through February. I mean it seemed like only last week I was enjoying a glass (or five) of Prosecco, counting down the seconds to 2016!

Five Exercises to Do Every Day to Keep Fit for Life

Even on days when you have other exercise plans, get out of bed and make a bee-line for a spot on the floor where you can spend as little as five minutes--60 seconds per exercise--to distribute blood flow to muscles, lubricate the joints and boost your metabolism.

Turmeric Roasted Chickpeas

I like chickpeas. I mean I like hummus. The peas themselves, well they have a very mild flavour. That's why they are perfect to sprinkle them with all those strong, aromatic spices like turmeric, smoked paprika and cayenne pepper. So this is exactly what we are doing here.

Albondigas Con Salsa de Tomato

Adam Warren | Posted 11.01.2016 | UK Lifestyle
Adam Warren

I'm quite surprised at this statement because I love Spanish food, particularly tapas and that idea of trying a little bit of everything. I say that now because I never used to be. It used to be 'right, I've ordered that dish and that's the only dish I want to eat' (perhaps I'm appreciating the idea of sharing more in my mature years!).

Life After Paris, Syria, Turkey and After So Many Other Innocent Lives Lost...

Fear: it spreads invisibly and silently. Being at a concert recently, it became really clear how Paris has affected us all, even when we think it hasn't. The first thing we noticed was that it took incredibly long to get into the venue. Why? The security check was understandably tight.

Ready Meals vs Ready Made

Rebecca Heslop | Posted 20.10.2015 | UK Lifestyle

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?

Lentils are of course incredibly good for us. One of the world's healthiest food, they're packed full of cholesterol-lowering fibre and are an excellent source of protein, vitamin B with virtually no fat too!

Five Tips to Eat Healthy on the Road

Road trip means road trip snacks, hostel food is pasta with tomato sauce and travelling means eating at a different (or worse, the same!) fast food chain every day? Not anymore!

Butternut Squash Quinoa Risotto

Emma Hollingsworth

I'm a total quinoa addict, so it seemed only natural to sub it in and leave the arborio on the bench (well, on the supermarket shelf to be exact). Quinoa is everything arborio isn't - it's low GI, low in starch, low carb, high protein, high fibre, you get the picture.

I know I'm not the only one who finds it frustrating that a man simply has to decide to lose weight and it drops off (or so it appears), while so many women have a constant battle with their weight - struggling to lose a few pounds, only to then end up gaining it all back!

I always keep halloumi in the fridge since it has a long shelf-life. This recipe rewards experimentation. Try adding cucumber, pesto, oliveor basil instead of coriander etc. - whatever you fancy.
