Hurrah it’s Sunday! A day of rest for most of us, either from work or from working out, Sundays provide that smug sense of satisfaction when getting into bed on a Saturday night knowing that you don’t have to set the alarm. But lie-ins and wod-free days aside, my favourite thing about Sundays is pancakes! And I suspect I’m not alone…
Going to the cinema can be a great way to enjoy a night out, free from the distraction of kids, pets and our phones! But it can also open us up to some hard-wired habits and cravings. Movie snacks are typically delicious but also calorically dense. Popcorn, Kazoozles, ice cream, M&Ms – are anyone else’s taste buds salivating? When you’re sat there in the dark it’s easy to let the intoxicating effects of those sugary treats take control.
Protein shakes are a fantastic way to fuel your muscles after a great workout, but simply combining protein powder and water can be pretty boring and bland. By adding ice and a few other tasty ingredients you can turn that boring smoothie into a delicious dessert.
Just because you’re a vegetarian, it doesn’t mean that you have to resign yourself to quorn and tofu day in and day out in order to meet your protein needs. Legumes and grains can offer a decent serving of protein as well as providing lots of essential vitamins and minerals. These spicy little sweetcorn fritters are the perfect way to start your day or to enjoy on a bed of greens at lunch.
Curry is something I came to associate with being unhealthy at some point in my life. Probably not long after I left university where Curry night socials were a regular weekly feature! It’s usually high in fat, high in carbs and impossible to track accurately if you’re eating out. Well although my university days are over, whilst we were on vacation I needed an idea for a meal to cook for the group who were predominantly all Brits. So I thought it was about time I cracked the case and figured out how a delicious curry could be perfectly healthy & macro-friendly. This turned out super low-fat and easy to portion out so that you can be confident you’re hitting your macros accurately. I was so happy with how it worked out!
Kale is widely recognized as a nutritional powerhouse. Coveted as a superfood ingredient in the diets of many celebs, the “queen of greens” has received a ton of hype in the media and on platforms like Goop. Despite all this though, it’s hard to get past the fact that it tastes like rabbit food!

When I was younger I wasn’t so into chocolate. But that’s only because I was into everything! Like candy and biscuits (that’s cookies to you) and cake & crips (chips in your world). Really, I didn’t discriminate between anything yummy. I loved and consumed all delicious tasting things equally!
