The weekend is a time to forget about the stresses of work and relax, spend time with your loved ones and do things that you enjoy doing, and sometimes that means indulging yourselves a little - it is the weekend after all.
Without food, we simply wouldn’t be able to survive. It gives us energy to do things and allows us to supply our body with the vitamins and nutrients that it needs to grow and repair; whilst this is true, many of us turn to food for reasons other than fuel.
Most of us look forward to the summer months. Not least for excuses to fire up the barbeque, or to cool down with summer ice creams. But some of the foods we eat in this season may not always be the most suitable if you suffer the stomach acid related conditions- heartburn or indigestion.
Here's a subject we hear about all the time. Whether you love it or hate it, junk food is available everywhere; from stores and restaurants to your local chip shop and kebab van. For children and adults alike, it can be a tempting, simple and often cheap way to eat.
The festive period is a time best spent with your family and friends, enjoying time together and being spoilt with an abundance of lovely foods and drinks. As this time of year is very well known for being overindulgent, it makes it one of the hardest times of the year to stick to a healthy eating plan.
