What we ate on MTLR

June 26, 2017

With so much exercise we needed to eat a lot to keep our energy up. And eat we did and very well too. Breakfast was a feast of Lucy Rocks musleis (vegan, gluten free), Pip & Nut butters, fresh fruit, chia puddings, custard tarts (we were in Portugal – it would be ride not to), eggs and toast. Lunch was usually a picnic on the beach and this was a simple chicken salad. Fruit, crisps and biccies were also on tap. This wasn’t a retreat for turning the treats down! For me, dinner was when I got really excited. Rainbow arrays of exotic salads, spreads, herbs and veggies were presented with artistic flair, accompanied by bigger, heartier dishes like risotto, pasta, paella and big meat dishes.… Continue reading...

Hello Day Supplements: Spring Box review

May 11, 2017

When the seasons change so too does our external environment. Sunlight exposure, temperature, wind, rain and natural life all fluctuate and this obviously has a big impact on how we feel and even how we look. We’re usually happier and more energetic when we have a decent amount of sun exposure and an environment that’s rich with life. But when our external environment is harsh, urban, polluted and our skin is exposed to all kinds of extreme weather and temperatures viruses like colds reign supreme, skin feels dry and delicate and our mood and energy often take a nose dive. To help manage the effects of the changing seasons, Hello Day has designed supplements specifically formulated by doctors and pharmacists to help you prepare and manage your body, mind and spirit throughout the year.… Continue reading...

STRESS. How many times do you hear that word each day? Well, according to WHO (World Health Organisation) we’re hearing it more than ever before. In fact, WHO have declared stress as “the health epidemic of 21st century” costing American businesses an estimated 300 billion US$ per year. Whilst some research argues that a little bit of stress can motivate people and get their creative juices flowing negative stress, however, has proven to have a detrimental effect on many people’s health. Whether it results in physical burnout, mental fatigue, anxiety, emotional imbalance or spiritual emptiness- when we operate on zero, we are as good as useless to ourselves, family and in the workplace.… Continue reading...

Three Berry Good Breakfast Recipes

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...

For all those times when I’m  in a rush and want to hit the gym but need some fuel to give me the energy to have a great workout – shakes are my saving grace. They are super simple to make and absolutely delicious, especially with Bioglan’s Skinny Greens Vanilla protein powder which is made with pea protein meaning it’s suitable for any diet plus it’s easy to digest. Apart from being delicious, quick and easy to make, the beauty of shakes is that you don’t have to wait an hour or more to digest them – you can go and workout almost immediately after consumption and the protein also keeps you fuller for longer than if you just had a shake without the protein.… Continue reading...

Making Detoxing Delicious with Bioglan Superfoods

The eponymous Maya Clinic reputed for detoxing its guests with stale bread, broths and general gastronomic blandness/starvation means that many give a ‘detox’ a wide birth for fear of being hangry, tired and deprived. Happily though I’m here to tell you that detoxing does not have to be like this. Detoxing (which is in my book, quite simply just abstaining from the ‘naughty’ rich and sometimes toxic treats like alcohol, sugar and dairy and cashing in on all the good “healthy” stuff) can be delicious, abundant and make you feel fantastic as my recent trip to Chalet Rosiere with my Bioglan Superfoods Supplements in hand proved.… Continue reading...

The Smart Guide to Travel Sustenance

January 20, 2016

We’ve all experienced the perils of plane food. That dreaded moment when the trays of dehydrated bland blobs accompanied by unidentifiable desserts (so bright that they’d certainly be deemed deadly to any species in the jungle) land in our laps masked in tinfoil to momentarily disguise the misery that lies beneath. (Click here if you need a recap.) It’s a debilitating experience, peeling back that silver paper – but worse still is the aftermath of the stodgy, sugary assault on the senses. Your sugar levels suddenly sore only to plummet lower than before soon after leaving you feeling sluggish as your digestion goes into overdrive. … Continue reading...
