So many things inspire me on a daily basis. People, places, food, books, nature. Even the Irish weather!
I have collected a list of Irish companies, which I use and approve, some resources of useful health and nutrition and mindfulness / mindful eating related websites, as well as a long list of my favourite food blogs from around the world. These people all promote health and wholefoods as part of a healthy lifestyle. I hope you will feel as inspired to enjoy food as part of your healthy lifestyle as much as I do.
