The Everyday Diet, The Everyday Problem?

I have previously blogged about my interest in nutrition. As I continue to develop my knowledge, both through reading various books and working through my nutrition course I can feel myself becoming both more knowledgeable and more confused.

Veganuary 🌱

This January I committed to the increasingly popular ‘Veganuary’ . My reasons for doing so were varied.
