Choice overwhelm. That’s what we’re up against today. Ok, so it’s definitely a first world problem, but when it comes to food, the choices presented to us are vast, and can be overwhelming. I often used to stand in supermarket aisles looking at the endless array of possibilities, only to fall back on the same ...

vegan parent france

People often ask me why I ended up in France. For lack of a better response, I usually reply with something to the effect of “pourquoi pas?” But when I became a mum, I started to wonder why the heck I chose this country. Sure, it’s beautiful, there’s a lot more space than in England, ...

health coaching arnold de souza

I’ve done a lot of things for my health over the years. Juice fasts, raw food diets, even marathon running. But following a health coaching programme is hands down the best thing I’ve ever done to boost my life and wellbeing. I have never been slimmer, stronger, or more flexible. This level of health feels ...

I filmed this video yesterday, and as you’ll see, I was in full-on snotty zombie mode. And yet, just 24 hours later, I am healed! My nose may still be bunged up and I can’t taste or smell anything, but I’m definitely feeling peppy once more, which to me feels nothing short of miraculous. This ...

I am grateful to have received precious wisdom about home birth from women (🙏Hayley and Carol🙏) who had experienced it before me. This helped me immensely, to feel at ease ...

veggie magnifique vegan le figaro

It’s true, being vegan can be tricky at times. Not so much because of what you can and can’t eat, nor even because of the challenge of finding shoes that are cruelty-free, chic and comfortable. (We’ve kind of solved those things.) The trickiness lies in knowing how to react to unsolicited and clumsy ‘counsel’. I am ...

how-to-stop-drinking-alcohol

Yet another funny cultural difference between Ann and I cropped up while planning this video. It seems the word ‘teetotal’ isn’t as commonly used in the States, so ideas of ‘tea totalitarianism’ floated around Ann’s head. Like, you give up alcohol and start dictating an exclusively tea-fuelled lifestyle. Which is actually kinda close to the ...
