From boardroom to baby: Introducing the shopping list for the most fertile of shopping baskets!
By Laura Clark
I often see people suffering from ‘hectic life syndrome’… The reality of this poses many challenges – we get caught up in the 9-5 (or maybe 8-8?) and there are so many important, conscious decisions we make every day that the ones about food often become unconscious. We surf from the boardroom to the bar to bed and may repeat the process countless times a week. Our food choices are what we grab in a hurry after a long morning of meetings or perhaps are influenced by the stress we’re under on a daily basis. Poor sleep, as a result of both working hard and playing hard can take its toll on the body – raising levels of cortisol and causing cravings for higher fat and sugary foods.
