Warming winter salad


No Comments

As the days get shorter and the nights get longer I have this yearning to cuddle up on the sofa with a blanket, a good movie and lots of comfort food. Staying motivated to exercise is harder too! Going outside to run when its 5 degrees and pouring rain is just not quite as appealing as it is in summer.

This makes it then harder to eat well. I love summer foods. I love to eat salads, banana ice cream and fruit…everything which is definitely meant to be eaten on a tropical island not in London, in the wet and cold!

Then the less I move my body and the more heavy food I eat the less happy and energised I become, so it really is a downward spiral…

However we can’t let winter dampen our spirits and stop us from reaching our goals! So to stop S.A.D. from happening I listen to my body and consciously avoid heavy foods and fuel it with yummy, nutritious meals. I make sure what I eat is still warming and tasty so I feel super satisfied for those colder evening.

So here is my favourite healthy warming winter meal. Trust me you are going to want to try this…

The five a day Soup


1 Comment

Vegetables are good for us + plants are power! The nutrients found in vegetables are vital for a healthy body and can even reduce our risk of chronic disease. This is probably not new news to most of us. However it can sometimes be difficult to get in those five recommended vegetables a day and all of the nutrients we need.

I am very conscious of what I put into my body, making sure I am nourishing it in order for it to stay healthy and energised. When it reaches dinner time and I feel like a need that extra bit of veg in my life I will make this soup!

It is delicious, hearty, contains your five a day and is very easy to make…

Everyone can practice yoga, you are never too young or too old!

Research has shown that yoga can benefit children in various ways and if practiced can make them calmer, more focused and have better concentration. What parent or teacher doesn’t want that!?

If you are thinking this sounds like a great idea but don’t know where to begin, just be creative and go with the flow and children are bound to enjoy it!

To get them involved in yoga however it must be fun and exciting. Here are a few ideas for teaching children yoga…

My current fitness routine


No Comments

Being active and working out comes pretty easy to me, this may sound strange to some people out there, but honestly I just love moving my body and always have done. Okay, so obviously I do have my off days where I just want to sit and eat a whole pack of oreos but they are pretty rare.

From the age of four I was attending my local baby ballet, at primary school I had joined every athletic club going, and at home my sister and I would create obstacle courses around our garden pretty much every weekend.

There is something about being physical in whatever context, that has always made me feel good. Times have slightly changed and now my fitness routine is more organized; even though I wish my sister and I could still run around our garden to get fit and healthy bodies.
