Lemon And Chia Seed Muffins

The Body and Brunch

These muffins were tried and tested by 16 health enthusiatic girlies as the perfect post pilates snack on Sunday at my The Body and Brunch event. Made by the wonderful Faye Saunders and complimented our yummy LiEBES bircher. I thought I’d share the recipe with you as well as some pics from the event. There’s no better way to spend a Sunday morning then with Pilates, healthy food, green juices and lovely company! 

Easy Superfood Salad

Ahh watercress, don’t fear watercress- forget the maca, spirulina, bee pollen and add watercress to your diet today! It’s in season at the moment and is so good for you especially eaten raw. It’s packed full of nutrients and minerals! Yes I need to eat more too! This salad is light, full of goodness and easy peasy. You don’t need anything toooo fancy unless you’re still rolling your eyes at quinoa…

My Spring Skincare Routine

With Spring in the air, it’s time to refresh the beauty regime. Why not try switching to some natural organic beauty brands, my long term love is Neals Yard Remedies. I have been using their Wild Rose Beauty Balm for over a year now and swear by it. I’ve also recently started using Dr Hauschka after a make up artist gave me the most incredible facial with their products. I also use more simple products like coconut oil to take up make up off and coffee scrub to exfoliate. So here’s my current routine…

Getting Brave In The Bush

Let me start by explaining I am a bit of a wuss, I always have been. I even remember crying when I was younger while an exterminator was performing the raccoon removal process on one of the little critters in our attic. As I’ve become an adult I guess I’ve toughened up a little and ten months a go when I booked safari in South Africa, it felt like a daunting but exciting challenge in the near future but last week as we drove deeper into the game reserve I could feel my nerves heighten…

Guest Post: Something To Lift Your Spirits

 

I’m handing over to Omar Suleyman for my blog post this week who writes the blog Mission: GAINZ. Omar completely turned his life around through body building and was surprised to find out it’s not just all about aesthetics. I’ve recently started to incorporate more resistance and weight training into my workout schedule and starting to really notice some of these benefits that Omar talks about and he also has some great tips on getting started…

I love eggs and know that they are the best thing for me in the morning however I do usually crave something sweet like porridge or pancakes first thing so I decided to create a sweet version of the much loved scrambled eggs on healthy french toast. This breakfast is epic and keeps me fuller for longer compared to my usual porridge, it’s my new favourite lazy Sunday morning treat…

My Health and Fitness U Turn

Health and Fitness u turn post

So it’s March and I’ve finally U Turned! I’m going to hold my hands up and say I definitely overindulged over Christmas and then new year and then just couldn’t get into the right mind set in January, with it being my birthday and frankly my mind just felt very busy so I lost interest in health and fitness! I hadn’t been working out as much as much and for some reason was reaching for chocolate more than my usual vibrant nourishing diet! I was starting to feel less like me every day!

The night before starting Neom’s Happiness Programme on 31st January, I was definitely in need of some help. The programme couldn’t have come at a better time. I was getting over a yucky virus, I was feeling exhausted from a busy January and my March holiday was feeling way too far in the future (it’s now only a week away- eek), I was definitely in NEED of Neom’s Happiness Programme to get me through February! So as we are in the final week I thought I’d share how it’s been going and some happy tips with you…

It doesn’t surprise me that eggs were at the top of the most instagrammed list in 2015! We all love eggs and know how great they are for us but I think we need to get a little more creative with them and make them the star of the meal! This year I am involved in the #eggcentric campaign with British Lion Eggs and I’ve been bought onboard as an ambassador to create some tasty and innovative egg recipes for you guys including these energising egg slices…
