Get your health fix with prolific yogi, health food blogger and lifestyle inspirer Lola Berry.

What's not to be excited about! I'm real lucky cos I'm about to bring out a new book called The Happy Cookbook in March, 2015. I've also just released a facial oil called Oscar made from rose hip oil, macadamia nut oil, calendula and flower essences. And I love filming so I do lots of health online content. For me it's just about doing what you love.
