Glynis Barber Diet & Nutrition, Health 4 Comments

I hate brussel sprouts. No, I mean really hate them. I literally cannot eat a cooked sprout. I mean why would I? They’re gross, right? This was me just a few short years ago.

The healthy sweetener

Glynis Barber Diet & Nutrition, Health 1 Comment

We all know by now (surely??) that sugar is detrimental to health and can lead to weight gain, diabetes and god knows what else. To circumnavigate this unfortunate fact, who hasn’t tried out alternative sweeteners convinced that they’re much better for our health?  Maple syrup anyone?
