Healthy eating (whether that’s clean, paleo, IIFYM, whatever floats your boat…) really doesn’t have to be that difficult. Eating right (especially if you’re trying to lose a few extra pounds) isn’t just having plain salads and dry chicken. As I’ve taught myself the clean way of eating (mantra: “It’s a lifestyle, not a diet”) it’s just been a case… Continue reading Keeping it clean – 8 rules of healthy eating
I make these and keep them in the fridge for the week – so easy to grab when you’re on the go. I tend to go to the gym before work which means a horrid start of 5.50am, and there is no way I want to eat at that time of the morning! These are… Continue reading Gym power: ‘Ferrero Rocher’ energy balls

Weekday, workday breakfasts. If I’m being good that morning, I’ve got up at 6am for the gym. If I’m not going to the gym, I’ve usually not got up with enough time to sit down for breakfast at home. Either way, I need something I can grab and go. My ‘breakfast d’jour’ at the moment… Continue reading Apple & Coconut bircher museli

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

There’s nothing quite like homemade bread. But in all honesty it can sometimes feel like too much effort when you can nip to the shops…but no more! This healthy and clean spelt and seed loaf couldn’t be easier to make; 15 minutes of work, a bit of a wait while it bakes and voila! Healthy… Continue reading Spelt and seed bread loaf

It is possible to make naughty treats healthy, or at least make them healthier. I love taking desserts and seeing if a clean version works, or in some cases, tastes even better! Yes, it doesn’t always work (let’s not talk about the Tiramisu saga) but when it does, boy oh boy do I feel smug. Meringues are… Continue reading Clean and healthy meringues
