How to Drink 2L of Water a Day: My 10 day Experiment Posted on November 20, 2018 | No Comments

I have a confession; I don’t drink “enough” water. On an average day, I would drink somewhere between 0.5-1.5L of water.

Why I don’t use Nuttelex & Other Dairy Free Spreads Posted on September 14, 2018 | No Comments

For one reason or another dairy free spreads like that of Nuttelex, seem to be marketed as the healthy alternative to margarine. I’m not entirely sure why, perhaps it’s the name?
