5 Nut M*lk recipes for morning, noon and night

September 18, 2017
IMG_0705
If you like me have a little (ok who am I kidding)– big – something for nut mylks then experimenting with nutty concoctions in the kitchen is kinda like letting a kid loose in a sweetshop. But unlike a bag of sweets the nutty concoctions below are full of goodness and no artificial sugar, and yet still yield the same delight! I use Plenish m*lks (available at Sainsbury’s and Ocado) in all things nuts. Plenish m*lks are long life, unsweetened and organic so you know you’re getting nut-ing but the best bang for your nut buck. You will have a blast both blending and devouring these nut-ritious nut recipes.… Continue reading...

Munch Fit Salmon
Munch Fit: Overall Winner (Images above and below) Best For: Gym Junkies with a taste for the finer things in life Munch Fit declares itself as “the premium” meal delivery service for “a fit,  healthy, active lifestyle.” The company really stood out for me.

I really was overwhelmed and very impressed by the quality. It’s all gluten-free and you can tailor exactly what type of plan you want. (I.e vegan, paleo, low carb, high protein.)

Three Berry Good Breakfast Recipes

July 13, 2016
Berry Good Breakfast Recipes
When it comes to health berries have a fab rep. Blueberries are packed with antioxidants, (called anthocyanins), that may help keep memory sharp and raspberries contain ellagic acid, a compound with anti-cancer properties. They’re also a great sources of fiber, which aids a healthy digestive system. Oh and the best bit? They are DEE-LISH. But if you need more reasons to dig into summer’s sun-kissed little fruits, take a look at some of my favourite brekkies brimming with berries. What’s more they have the added bonus of containing some of Bioglan’s Superfoods to add more bang to your buck and more spring to your step.… Continue reading...

Feel Good Week at Hillside Beach Club

April 27, 2016
2015-10-10 10.20.51
Last October I was given a chance to extend my summer by a few beautiful hot sunny days at the luxury resort Hillside Beach Club in Fethiye, Turkey. The invitation included a holistic Fitness programme led by founder of That Girl London, Christina Howells and delicious wholesome food by nutritionist Rob Hobson co-author of The Detox Kitchen Bible, (which depicts a multitude of healthy delicious dishes to target health needs, whether that’s losing weight, gaining energy or getting clearer skin) in addition to sampling Hillside Beach Club’s own extensive healthy menu. Alongside other journalists and bloggers, I would get to test drive the hotel’s new “Feel Good Week” aimed at adults who want to revitalise their body and mind with fitness, nutrition and yoga instruction, hiking, spa treatments and a healthy menu of Mediterranean-inspired food.… Continue reading...

Protein plus fat-only plates for No-Carb eaters

May 29, 2015
Sweetpotato
I wanted to post some recipes for all those who may be on a strict protein and fat only diet. While I would never recommend this diet to be sustained for the long-term, being a journalist, I’ve experienced several fitness institutions and nutritionists who prescribe the no-carb diet for a short-term weight loss solution. This is perfectly fine to maintain for a short while – but do get advice from a health professional before you embark on it. This will ensure you’re still giving your body everything it needs to maintain good health. I’ve been on this diet for the past several weeks (for a special article out soon in The Mail on Sunday) and I have to admit, having to munch solely on meat, eggs, cheese, oil, nuts and green veg does get slightly tedious.… Continue reading...

Once we arrived at the buffet, however, everything suddenly seemed much brighter. Fresh juices are made every day.

7 Reasons Why Butter is Good For You

September 23, 2014
Recently butter, the old forgotten favourite among us health conscious has been making a comeback. Whereas previously we were told to avoid butter at all costs because it’s fattening, causes high colestrol and heart disease, new research is now telling us that it’s time to butter ourselves up once again and I for one am thrilled. Here’s why. I’ve summed up research  by Authority Nutrition into seven simple points. Butter is Rich in Fat-Soluble Vitamins There are a lot of fat soluble vitamins in butter. This includes vitamins A, E and K2. Grass-fed butter is particularly rich in Vitamin K2, which can have powerful health benefits.… Continue reading...

London Restaurant Favourite: The Good Life Eatery

August 29, 2014
Unassumingly snuggled in next to Starbucks on Sloane Avenue is the health mecca that is The Good Life Eatery. It’s relatively new in London but that hasn’t stopped it from being one of the most-loved tried, tested, talked about restaurants in town. Warm exposed brickwork, cosy booths and wooden tables make it homely and although the food is healthy it manages to be hearty too. The signature ‘Good Life’ salad is a rainbow plate of marinated kale, roasted sweet potato, lentils, red and black quinoa, toasted walnuts, Goji berries, nutritional yeast, with orange tahini vinaigrette with the option to add ‘extra protein': salmon, chicken, avocado or prawns.… Continue reading...
