Whether you think Valentine’s day is a beautiful day to celebrate and appreciate your significant other or a holiday exploited by companies to make money, love can feel all-consuming and there is a science as to why.

Love paints a grin across your face when that text message bling’s onto your phone or makes you ‘coo’ when you see your friend post a photo of their new baby in a cute outfit.

So what exactly is it that gives us those warm and fuzzy feelings? good old oxytocin.

Oxytocin is a chemical that is produced from our hypothalamus (a part of our brain that also works with the adrenals, thyroid, and gonads)

It is often referred to as the ‘love hormone’ as it is the chemical that is released when we fall in love or when we orgasm.

However you don’t need to fret if you currently aren’t in a state of blissful romance, there are plenty of other ways for us to tap into this wondrous flow of good feelings.

Camping is all about being in the great outdoors, becoming one with nature, meeting some new people and eating food from a can right! wrong. 

Just because you have limited access to cooking facilities, does not mean that you have to forgo the healthy eating. 

On a recent trip across America I took charge of the cooking side of things (shout out to the guys and gals who put up the tents) and we rocked it each and every day with great tasting and healthy food.

Happy camping all.
