The 6 Best Smoothie Bowls of All Time

If you have Instagram and you follow anyone who is even slightly on the right of the health eating spectrum, there’s no doubt that you would’ve seen the hashtag #smoothiebowl. What’s a #smoothiebowl? Think of the smoothie bowl as cereal redux; it’s the plant-based foodie’s update to cereal and milk (which is so 2008). It’s a fun…

13.1 Miles – Run Hackney

I bloody well did it. I ran a half marathon…! If you read my previous training post, you’d know that the tapering was getting to my head and wigging me out a little bit. To say I was nervous for this race was an understatement. The night before I barely got any sleep; I woke…

Best Bircher Breakfast

Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but I am always so surprised by how many people still skip it. Eating a well balanced breakfast: improves concentration and energy levels, averts cravings and controls hunger, and has been shown to increase your metabolic rate by up to 10%. If you’re on…

The Ugly Side of Weight Loss

When you lose weight, you change as a person. You stand a little taller. You wear clothes you wouldn’t have dared to before. You’re more confident, and it shows. If you lose weight a healthy way – it’s apparent in your physical health too. You may be glowing; you suffer less frequently from the common cold.…

Red Lentil and Butternut Squash Dhal

I’m staying at my parents house before I move to Melbourne in a couple of weeks, and as I work from home a majority of the week, have really been able to get creative at lunchtime. My mum said she had a bunch of red split lentils hiding in the cupboards somewhere, and did I…

Run Hackney Half Training – 2 Weeks To Go!

I wish I could report that I was feeling more motivated/stronger than ever/ready to tackle that half marathon in 10 days but, sadly, I am not. Four days of run training I had scheduled…let’s start with the good, shall we? 2 x 2.5mile (ish) runs – one hill training & one speed session. Hills I…

Coconut Cacao Bliss Balls

Allll healthy food sceptics, PLEASE behold: Cacao coconut bliss balls.  Creamy coconut combined with antioxidant + flavonoid rich cacao powder (raw chocolate powder) all mixed up with healthy-fats queen coconut oil. Ridiculouslytasty. They taste like bounty bars, without the crap. I can’t even really remember the quantities for these bad boys because I made them about a…

Shoulder + Core Circuit

A few weeks ago I gave my gorgeous friend Nikita (blogger over at Kitamode) a personal training session. She’d told me previously thats she wanted to work her upper body, and so I created a modified version of this circuit for her…I’m calling it the Shoulder Shredder. Circuit training (also known as high intensity interval…

Run Hackney Half Training – 3 Weeks To Go!

I really cannot be bothered with training for Run Hackney any more. Last week was tough; I couldn’t get the motivation to run, I felt tired all the time and when I tried to run just five miles (when on the Sunday previous I’d run 10.5) I couldn’t, and I gave up mid-run, in the…

Run Hackney Half Training – 4 Weeks To Go!

Training for a half marathon is hard work. This week was tough. I’m lacking in motivation, I’m going through a stressful personal time, and to top it all off, I’m (TMI warning) pre-menstrual. This was reflected in my eating habits this week – I overeat when I’m stressed and I did so a few times…
