But with the rise of the health movement and the increased focus on holistic living, an approach that can be adopted by anyone, there is an increasing availability of resources to find these alternatives and make them work for you.

You've been flat out all morning, after downing a double shot coffee in the morning and rushing to work whilst slamming down a banana or whatever you could grab on the way out the door. Lunch is not time to relax and no more prepared than breakfast was. You've got 15 minutes to find a bite to eat and inhale it all quicker than you can taste it before you get back to work. Not to mention, you have to check your Instagram feed from the last 3 hours to see what the 500 people you follow are eating and how they are living their lives better or worse than you! You need to have it all done yesterday. Sound familiar?Read More
