With the new year well underway, many people are taking part in Dry January as a way to cut back after overindulging at Christmas, to explore the sober curious lifestyle, or because they may have developed some concerns about the extent of their drinking.

The Veganuary movement began eight years ago in London and has since spread across countries and continents, encouraging people to abandon animal products each January in favour of a plant-based diet.  It gives people a glimpse into a life of veganism and many permanently convert after dipping their toes.

In rare cases, however, you can drink too much, causing nausea and headaches, and in extreme circumstances, vomiting and diarrhea.  So what’s the magic number?

Gracie and Sophie Tyrell had a very personal reason for creating their healthy snack brand Squirrel Sisters with no sugar added. The 2015 launch of their company was directly linked to Sophie’s diagnosis with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, a potentially life-threatening heart condition, and her recovery from major heart surgery. Sophie was an active 25-year-old who loved endurance runs and bike rides, trekking mountains in the UK and working hard in her marketing job, until a free health...

September 14, 202115 min

Can two wedges of strong, salty, cheese stuck together with a creamy, generous layer of butter form part of a healthy diet? On keto, yes it can.  The words “keto,” “ketosis” and “ketones” are bounced around all over the place these days.
