On a gloomy Saturday morning I awoke feeling fabulous – I’d just had one of the best sleeps of my life on an unfamiliar bunk bed and I was about to have a day at Bondi Beach. I had pictured myself having some crazy-healthy smoothie in the sunshine, eating at a fabulous healthy cafe and swimming on the beach (something I had been craving for weeks). But alas, the weather had other plans, and it was overcast again.
With our phones and tablets only half-charged, Quentin (Con) and I made our way to Bondi via double-decker train and then bus. Most of my conversations with Con were about things he had to try here in Australia and helping him to understand words I was using that he didn’t understand. Mostly we were just giggling at our own attempts to pronounce words native to one another (my French is atrocious!) and talked about the differences between France and Australia so far.

I started writing this post on Thursday, and most of what is below is from that day of writing. But since then a few things have made me realise that this week is the perfect week to do a No Social Media Challenge. Now, obviously with my blog I use Facebook and Instagram to keep you all updated, and its certainly essential to getting my blog out there in the big wide world; but I also use it a lot in my social life. In fact, over the last few months the “tag a friend who is always on Facebook/on their phone/taking selfies” has been on the increase and I’m not ashamed to admit, I’m starting to worry a little bit.

If you’re anything like me, you spend a lot of time on your phone. Between texting, calling, emailing, Facebook, Instagram, Spotify, Google Maps, TransLink Journey Planner and apps for managing both my Facebook page and my blog, there is a lot that I get done on my phone every day. But, as you know, one of the best things about having a smart phone is that there is an app for everything, however, this doesn’t always mean that every app is awesome, so in no particular order, I thought I’d list a few of my favourite health and wellness apps to help make your life a little easier.

With increased awareness and understanding, over 17% of the Australian population (that’s 3.7 million people) are avoiding particular foods due to allergy or intolerance. Whenever I meet someone new, one of the most common things I am told about or asked about is that person’s (or their friend or family member’s) food intolerance or allergy, and how hard it is for them to find out what to eat or for them to actually stop eating the food that gives them their symptoms. Often, people are unwilling to completely remove said foods from their diet (I certainly was) and have an emotional attachment that makes them feel like they are missing out or feel that the food is a comfort to them, so continue to eat the food, or even worse – binge eat the food.
With this in mind, I thought that I would discuss my tips on living with a food intolerance, mixed with a bit of tough love, because you may not really realise, but by eating the food you are intolerant to, you are setting yourself up for a lot of damage.
