What on earth are Boston beans? I am, as many of you know, a down to earth Lancashire gal and labelling food with a new name to boost sales really doesn’t go down too well with me. Not impressed, however I am wrong, it seems – after a Google search – that Boston is a

It’s March and it is snowing today! I have been out and I did get soaked to the skin – urgh! It is not nice snow – more the sloppy sort that doesn’t stick around long enough to freeze properly. If you are thinking of cooking a really warming comforting meal you need go no

Nutritional Science VS The WorldWorking in the world of nutritional sciences is a funny one. People rarely argue with chemists when they quote chemical formulas, nor do they argue with geologists when they have proven the age of a fossil through carbon dating BUT in the nutritional sciences, it is a different matter.

This is a family favourite, a classic dish that is the stalwart of many family meals so we should look at modifying it to make it suitable for ALL the family – even those with IBS. Whilst I would not advocate everyone following a low fodmap diet if they don’t need too, the occasional meal

As with many athletes I like structure, and a clear set of rules to work to.  I believe in evidence-based rules. Carbs: 6-10g/kg body weight/day. Protein: 1.2-1.7 g/kg body weight/d. Fat: 20-30% total energy. Recovery: 1-1.5 g carbohydrate / kg body weight/30min. Hydration: 500ml/ 0.5kg body weight lost during exercise.  Eat 2 hours pre exercise.

During the month of January there’s a lot of nutrition noise around cutting foods out, making changes to your diet. Well how about just focussing on what you’re doing
