So it’s January again, the time of year when instead of going around in circles doing the same old thing we resolve to do something different.

Most New Year resolutions focus on giving up something bad for you which often comes with the added benefit of a regular cash saving and I’m just the man to advise you what to do with all that money.

Food for thought folks… healthy food for thought.
