Hello everyone, and welcome! To this, the Healthy Ronin website. I’m so glad you’re here with me today. Allow me to introduce myself…
My name is James, and I am the Founder of Healthy Ronin. I have a passion for nature and health, and realise just how much they overlap! I try to always maintain a healthy lifestyle, especially through eating natural, whole, well-balanced food, and it would mean a lot if I could convince and help others to do the same.
I’ve been passionate about health and nutrition for years and over time I have learnt a fair amount through personal research and my own experience about the paramount role that diet has to play in one’s well-being.
Now whilst we don’t always stop in the supermarket to wonder “what if?” when we see those organic apples, or that pastured organic turkey, sometimes it really is the small decisions that make a big difference.
And the more we take care of our body and mind, the more they will take care of us.
That’s the message that I want to spread.
But there’s something else important as well – our impact on the planet. We hear more and more about this, and change needs to happen! As far as food goes, choosing organic is a great step, but mixing things up can also help – a lot! That is why I am a proud ambassador for Eat Grub! Eat Grub is a brilliant business spreading the word of ‘etymology’ around the West!
The act of eating insects and bugs is strange for Westerners, and many consider it unpleasant! That’s understandable, because we’ve mostly been taught to fear insects or ignore them. But these are healthy sources of protein, fats, and nutrients consumed across much of the world – even in developed countries. Farming for insects requires much less land, water, and feed than for livestock, and is a brilliant, sustainable source of nutrition. They may just be the way of the future!
Believe it or not, there are many different flavourful and versatile options to choose from – it just takes a small leap of faith! Check out Eat Grub’s products to learn more.
So stick around as we explore the ways we can learn to take care of ourselves and steer our own destiny, and why we should…
Honestly, I wasn’t always the healthiest kid in town growing up (so to speak). But by no means was I the unhealthiest, and in a way that’s one of my greatest tools.
You see, just like many other kids, I was no stranger to some of the worst products in the food industry today. And nor was I to binging my evenings away indoors hypnotised by the highly addictive technological terror we all know as video games. However, being lucky enough to inherit some of my Father’s good genes (thanks!), I do have some athleticism to guide me a little. And although I knew like most that such a lifestyle was unhealthy, I never truly realised how much so until I had learnt it the ‘not so easy way’…
We’ve all had our moments in life when we realise that it’s time for change. For me, one of the biggest of those moments occurred towards the end of 2017, when I started to see my own health decline – and that of some of the closest people around me. And although some newfound inconveniences were indeed hard to deal with at first, it was through them and my efforts to overcome the damage of my own mistakes that I found one of my greatest strengths: a determination and passion to become the healthiest and the best that I can be…
I got to work from then on. It started online, researching for many hours, reading studies, listening to experts, and buying multiple books that in turn would give me the knowledge and the skills that would turn my life around, and transform the way that I saw the world, the food industry, and myself.
Realising The Truth.
It wasn’t long before I started to see just how hard things in the health industry really can be.
There is a lot of misinformation out there – some of it thought to be “common knowledge”! Whilst it may not seem all that important for most of us as we go about our daily lives, on both a molecular (genetic) and far greater level we are at a much greater risk than many are aware. This isn’t meant to scare you, far from it, instead, I hope to enlighten you.
I want to help you see this, and start to make positive changes in your own life that you will notice. Because I have seen the effects of a positive diet on negative health first-hand, but also because I want to spread the word to the world, so that, we together can work to prevent sickness and promote well-being.
Wouldn’t that make the world just that little bit better?
Not only can a healthy diet benefit everyone’s health, but also the planet’s.
Healthy, Nutritious, and Delicious – that’s what a diet should be. The ‘Healthy Ronin’ is within each and every one of us, and it’s waiting! I’m still discovering mine now, and you can too! Join my – our – journey…
So then, my actions towards making the world a healthier place – even if just a little – begin here with my blog Healthy Ronin.
Here, knowledge and pride and putting words to action come first, and we challenge detrimental practices and ideas, so that we too may contribute to the growing number of people making great changes every day to become healthier, happier, and help the planet on their way.

Be a better you. And we can be a better us.
