"There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so" - Hamlet

This is very true; trust me I'm an active thinker! It's all about listening to your body. Eat when your hungry, sleep when you’re actually sleepy and when you crave chocolate sniff some vanilla essence or just have a tiny bite.

This wonderful book is a must have, at the moment I'm reading it cover to cover and let me tell you it's not your average recipe book.

Jane is a nutritionist and gives you hints on how to look after your body when you’re pushed for time after a stressful day. This has inspired me to re vamp my commodities, throw away the ketchup (you don't realise how tough that was) and walk to Tesco. I was a nutcase and bought pecans, walnuts, cashews, sesame seeds, pine kernels, sunflower seeds, dates and brazil nuts. Little packs of these are as handy as snacks and even sprinkling them on salads or adding in a sandwich. This morning I grilled some cheddar on toast and topped it with chopped brazil nuts, BOOM.

This book made me realise that whatever you experience in the day you want to eat something comforting that might make up for it after. You can try and change your line of thinking and add variety and wholesome options to end your day on a high, and it will benefit your body and mind.

This might not be the case for everyone, but the last thing you want is to get into a trap of sitting in front of the TV and not actually enjoying what you’re eating but focusing on 'my big fat gypsy wedding'.
Tell your friends nuts are awesome and Jane is awesome.
Time for some chai.x
