There is something about eating healthily that you can feel. It manifests quite tangibly in your body. Strong fingernails, healthy shiny hair. And in your emotions – more positive, more energy, more focused. Healthy for me means eating a constant variety of fresh tasty ingredients, little (almost no) alcohol, almost no caffeinated coffee and being vegetarian. I love the Indian focus on including the six tastes in each meal. There is little take away food in my diet and little processed foods, although my weaknesses are potato chips, corn chips and chocolate.

It does take a focus on food shopping and preparation – the cycles and rhythms of the kitchen – but I can see the difference in those periods where I am eating less fruit and vegetables and more junk food. Thankfully I love to cook.
