As an (almost) lifelong vegetarian and foodie, I thought I knew a lot about eating well. A minor health blip a couple of years ago provoked a reassessment. I have embarked on a new food and activity journey inspired by some special people along the way -principally yogis, herbalists & raw fooders. But this is not about the blind acceptance of a different lifestyle or some New Age rant. More a perspective honed by the cynicism of age and a career spent analysing other people’s behaviour and motivations. Grumpy old psychologist on food and health.
