Library & Resources

A library of wonderful resources covering nutrition, wellness, recipes, cosmetics and more. This section will be updated on the regular so check back often for new additions. I’ve read, seen and refer to each and every book, film, website listed here. A broad spectrum of resources are included so you can make your own informed decisions regarding diet and lifestyle. You may find one method that totally fits your ethos or perhaps like me, take a little from each to build your own.

Know of a website/book/film you think should be included here? Share in the comments!
