  • Still Me by Jojo Moyes

    Book Review. I have had this book, "Still Me" by Jojo Moyes, for years. It always interested me but has sat untouched. Recently, I had re-found my love for reading, and so pulled it off my bookshelf and begun to read. I cannot believe I had not opened it before! From the first page, I was hocked! I have loved this book, it was beautifully written, I felt as if I was in Louisa’s shoes. I could hear different accents, expressions, feeling,s and emotions. You could hear the characters shout, and whisper, and every emotion as they felt them. It made me both laugh out loud and cry. I had to stop myself reading ahead, as I was so interested to find out about Louisa’s journey in New York and saying “Yes” to all new opportunities. We begin the story after Louisa lost to love of her life, and she is in a dark place. She has met someone new, Sam, and has a supportive family, but needs something different. That is where this job opportunity in New York, working for the Gopniks. It is a household full of tension and secrets, which we learn and keep with Louisa. For months Louisa’s life revolves around Mrs. Gopniks every move and secret, but the secrets start to crumble. Louisa finds herself in some tricky situations and without knowing many people in New York, and not being able to go home, but she does have a few friends and an unexpected ally for support. This is an excellent read for someone who loves a funny, love-filled, emotional book. We follow Louisa Clark to explore this new world in New York, becoming confident, and brave, watching her new friendships and life in New York, all while staying true to herself. We finish following Louisa's journey with, well, to me, an unexpected ending - but I guess that's the beauty of opening our eyes to different people's perspectives. If you read/ have read this book, please get in touch, I would love to hear your thoughts too! Emilia x

  • National Salt Awareness Week

    Last week, 8th to the 14th March 2021, was National Salt Awareness Week, It is organised by Action on Salt, part of CASSH. CASSH is a charity aimed at supporting reductions in the population's salt and sugar intake. It is recommended the maximum daily intake of salt to be 6 grams per day, however, adults in the UK consume over 8 grams. The mission of Action on Salt is to work with the government and food industry supporting them with gradually reducing the UK salt intake to below the recommended maximum level. Why is salt reduction important? Well, high salt intake contributes to hypertension, high blood pressure, which the World Health Organisation estimate affects 1.13 billion people worldwide. Hypertension increases our risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Hypertension is one of the most treatable causes of premature morbidity and mortality globally. What is CASSH doing? CASSH does research to strengthen the evidence to provide to key stakeholders and create policy change, it does media publicity and public awareness campaigns, in addition to encouraging the industry to reformulate products. Reformulation of products is important, as an estimated 75% this salt is already added in food by the food industry. So far, CASSHs key achievements include achieving a 10% reduction in the UK salt intake, saving an estimated 6000 lives each year. Now, we do need salt, it is an essential nutrient for healthy blood pressure, nerve, and muscle function, BUT as explained about, in excess amounts, which on average most people do consume above the recommendations, it contributes to hypertension. So, what can we do? Try using different products, instead of salt, to add flavour to our meals, for example, herbs and spices. When possible, choose unsalted alternatives, or products low in salt. A guide to the traffic light labels you see on the front of packs is: - Green “low” = <0.30g/ 100g Amber “medium” = 0.30-1.50g/ 100g Red “high” = >1.50g/100g OR >1.80g/ portion And to finish with a #mythbusting rock salt and sea salt are both just as high in sodium chloride (salt!) and so both contribute to high blood pressure in excess amounts – one is not “healthier” than another.

  • Gluten Intolerance, Coeliac Disease, & Wheat Allergy

    I have recently written a new blog piece, this was for Claire Pettitt, Registered Dietitian. I was excited to write this piece, as often terms like "gluten intolerant", "coeliac disease" and "wheat allergy" can be confused, so in this piece, I have a look at the different terms and explain what they mean. You can find this piece here: https://www.clairepettitt.com/blog/gluten-intolerance-coeliac-disease-and-wheat-allergy
