The healthier foods in a supermarket tend to be located around the edges of the store.
It’s worthwhile taking note of how much time you spend in each aisle. The more time you spend in the fruit and veg section, the more likely you are to pick up items from there.
Those foods found in the middle aisles, tend to be unhealthier and are laden with fat, oil and sugar which, if eaten in excess, can cause adverse effects on the heart and body leading to heart disease and other medical conditions.

With summer well and truly in full swing make sure you always remain sun smart.
We’re very fortunate that in this part of the world we have glorious sunshine but remember the UV index is at an all time high with average readings over 10. Exposure to such high levels can lead to ageing of the skin, which means wrinkles, but more importantly it increases your chance of developing nasty skin cancer. So this summer, stay sun smart and regularly apply sunblock at least spf 30+ as well as popping on a hat, sunnies and protective clothing.
Why not kick start the new year with a health check. Checking your blood pressure is a great start. Having a high blood pressure often comes with little to no symptoms, but the risks of having a serious medical condition such as a heart attack or stroke are increased.
The good news is, if you do have high blood pressure this can be managed through lifestyle changes and medication bringing your risk down.
