I’ve wanted to buy an activity tracker for a while. I love all that stuff: quantifying exactly what you’re eating (MyFitnessPal addict), doing, and achieving. There’s no doubt in my mind that the gamification of exercise and setting yourself clear targets and competitions gets you moving that little bit more, that little bit further and… Continue reading What wearable activity tracker should I buy?
I could eat ramen every single day quite happily. Takes no time to make, it’s so incredibly healthy, and you feel full and warm and happy afterwards. The best bit is you can add any vegetables or protein that you like. I’m pretty boring and I make it or order it the same way every… Continue reading Chilli chicken ramen
I love a new cookery book. Even better when the cover is a bright happy blue. Jamie Oliver is one of my favourite chefs, I’m obsessed with 15 minute meals (easy and delicious, amiright?) so I’ve been so excited by his latest book Everyday Super Food. After it was released I had my knee operation… Continue reading Jamie’s Everyday Super Food: Green Tea Soaked Salmon
January. If you’re like me you indulged over Christmas. Hell, it’s Christmas after all. And for me, it was my thirtieth birthday so by gum I wasn’t going to worry about eating that extra bag of chocolates. But now it’s the new year, and time to get back on the straight and narrow. Maybe it’s… Continue reading Lean, Clean and Mean January
A HUGE winner for dinner parties. 100% clean and healthy, but tastes like a naughty dessert. Make for guests, a summer BBQ, or just for yourself. Eat it guilt free. ❤ I might keep this up my sleeve for Christmas dinner….
POW. Sometimes you just want a big bowl of meat. This salad is wonderful, and with zero carb it’s on track for you whether you’re paleo, gluten free, clean, or just trying something new. Not okay for vegetarians or vegans though, natch 😉 I love this for a light but still protein rich post gym… Continue reading Beef meatballs and pomegranate salad
Clean, paleo spaghetti carbonara recipe.
Quick, easy, healthy, delicious. Chia puddings are the best. Chia seeds are one of those superfoods that you should just have in your cupboard at all times. I add them to nearly everything for a quick boost. They are packed with nutrients, antioxidants, protein and fibre, and by soaking them you bump up their size, making… Continue reading Vanilla Chia pudding
There’s no better thing in life than finding a way to ‘healthify’ naughty treats. I’d been craving chocolate/chocolate cake/sweets/anything that resembled a cake for a couple of weeks and no matter how many “totally clean” things I nibbled on, it just wasn’t going away. Sometimes you’ve just got to scratch that itch. Don’t give in and… Continue reading Gluten-free Brownie
Ahh Italy, home of my most favourite food. I think I like anything and everything the Italians make; and nothing beats breakfast, lunch and dinner in Italy itself! Back in April we went on a bit of a tour of the country, at one point staying in Sorrento very nearly at the home-town of the… Continue reading Caprese Salad
