The Lifebox Food Journal Series: Episode 4 with The Food Medic


16 June 2016

Welcome once again to our fantastic food journal series. Each month we put some of our favourite shining stars from the Health & Wellness Movement into the Lifebox hot seat (its hot but INCREDIBLY comfy) to bring you a little insight into their daily food diary. We also put them through their paces in our quick fire round where they spill the beans and tell you all their “must have” favourite foods, life hacks and things to look out for in 2016!


This week its the turn of one of our Fitness heroes: The Food Medic, AKA the sensational Hazel Wallace.


Hazel Wallace is the founder of The Food Medic ( She is a final year medical student with a passion for health and fitness. Although Irish born and bred, she has been living in Wales for the past 7 years.

The Food Medic arose from her medical background and interest in sports nutrition. She set up The Food Medic blog in August 2013, in the hopes of using it as a platform to show people that eating healthy, or eating ‘clean’, can be enjoyable, uncomplicated and easy to incorporate into busy lifestyle – like that of a medical student! On top of her studies as a medical student and her work as a blogger, she also has a number of collaborative products on the market, including her own range of protein powder. You can find her on instagram/twitter/snapchat: (@thefoodmedic)
