A couple of weeks ago a Facebook marketing pop up got the better of me and I clicked on a random ad for Purition- a wholefood based protein supplement that various sinister AI cookies decided I might like. I was maybe hungry, I was maybe vulnerable to suggestion and I was definitely sick of the […]

I’m out for a treat lunch with some ladies today so a light breakfast option was in order. I always feel like a bit of a effort on breakfast at the weekend, as quite simply I have time to do something more than throw some PB on a bit of toast whilst simultaneously drying my […]

Did everyone see that rather brilliant long read By Bee Wilson in the Guardian this week about the rise and (arguable) demise of the clean eating phenomenon? It is a very well written and astute commentary around current attitudes to lifestyle, the evils of social media and the assumed right to violently defend a factually […]

Does anyone know a fat vegan? You’re sniggering now and waiting for the punchline but really, I want to know. Do you know an un-skinny (long term) vegan? I thought I did once, but she was forced to correct me with a wry smile when I found her demolishing a burger at a food festival […]
