After all, there wasn’t many resources on whether wine is Paleo friendly or not.

love your mornings after

Have you ever had just a few glasses of wine and then could not wake up the other morning or felt rather ill? 

This article discusses natural wines and how to get healthier wine on a budget.

How a wine drinker eats healthily?

wine and health: health benefits of organic wine

There is an on-going debate that we are bombarded with lots of adverts, however there are many facts, tips and information that can be lost in translation. My personal feeling is that it can become overwhelming and we decide to stay away from it by simply not noticing much. That’s how our attention span becomes shorter and shorter.

As a wine drinker, I am concerned about staying very healthy. My friend once told me that it is not in the gym we become healthier, but in our homes. Nutrition is increasingly important. We all know life situations cannot be resolved by overeating or binge drinking, so it could be worth looking beyond our bodies and treating ourselves better.

This article aims to combine science behind nutrition and wine drinking with some practical tips that you can use right now. I invite everyone to share your own thoughts, as I am sure you’ve got your personal ticks. Together we can make our lives just ever so slightly better.
