Your body, your mind, own it!

The Happy Tummy Co came about because of three main things. One, I fricking love bread! Two, I LOVE being happy! Three, I had serious tummy issues until I was 25. The person you see today has spent 6 years working hard at understanding how to eat, how to move and how to be, to extend life and happiness. And the honest truth of it all is I didn't look to anyone for advice or even encouragement. Truthfully I've always been anti traditional medicine. I will never ever ever forget a moment I had aged 10 out in the fields...

Aged 4, there I stood, fierce in an apron too big for me on a pink plastic chair.

Aged 4, there I stood, fierce in an apron too big for me on a pink plastic chair.

Three things I loved when I was younger- Baking, my pink plastic chair and water. Invariably all three ended up together any chance I got in my quest to replicate my Mum's utterly perfect, fruit and fluffy scones. I was about four years old when my Mum went on her first weekend away without me. Left at home with Dad I thought I would start making my own perfect scones.

Thanks Mr Kellogg for your cereals. If only your brother didn't lace them with sugar and you weren't so anti masturbation.

In a time when the average British person is only eating half their RDA (recommended daily allowance) of fibre, I reflect on some of the food marketing that got us to this place. Mr. John Kellogg - the man who notoriously created breakfast cereals to prevent masturbation believed a diet of bland cornflakes and vegetarianism would prevent sexual activity. Though the motivation behind the Kelloggs' brand completely shocked me first time I discovered it, the man behind the brand began to rather amaze me. In the late 1800's when people began moving away from a large farmer's breakfast to lighter...

New York Lovers

I find New York so theatrical. Of course this has something to do with me seeking out theatre but without seeking, I find it spills out onto the streets anyway!
