Listen to your body, how it reacts to different foods, and know that while food is fuel a piece of chocolate cake every now and then is good for the soul.

When my mum makes a chocolate pudding. I add a dollop of fresh cream. It’s impossible to resist.

I surf twice a day if there are waves.

Blending watermelon and blueberries with almond milk and ice.
