I have so many nutrition clients come to me and say they eat really healthy for their main meals, but when it comes to snacking they really struggle to find anything nourishing. We're often faces with bags of chips, candy bars, of even hyper-processed protein bars that are masquerading as healthy food. Don't worry team, help is on hand. After living with a super-healthy (vegan + gluten-free) housemate for a few years, there was one thing she ate consistently: Mary's Crackers. In fact, I swore she must have had shares in the business because she tried to push their amazingness onto everyone sh ..read more

What to Look for in a Vegan / Plant Based Protein
The Fit Foodie
by Sally O'Neil - Editor in Chief

It holds particular value if you’re trying to build muscle or get lean because protein takes more energy (aka calories) to break down, comparative to fats and carbs. This is called the thermogenic effect of food - and why you’ll hear people say ‘a calorie is not a calorie’, partly because the net energy provided is less than reported on the nutrition panel.  You don’t have to get all your protein from animal and dairy products. They are arguably the best sources of high-quality complete proteins available to us, but if you follow a mo ..read more

The Fit Foodie

I've had a number of exes hit me up in COVID. It's weird what isolation will do. I caught up with Marni Battista - dating expert and relationship coach - to give us some tips to deal with it. Exhibit A. We’ve all heard… “they always come back.”  Why is that?  It might have been a guy that you didn’t get past the texting stage with, or a guy that you went on a few dates with… and he ghosted you.  Or, even a guy that you thought could’ve been the love of your life. The bottom line is you made a decision to get him out of your head, or even your heart for good, and now he’s back ..read more
