Rebecca Joseph Jewellery

I have a real soft spot for jewellery and being married to a man who absolutely DOES NOT shower me in gifts, I have to seek, find and buy my own gems! I came across Yoga Bunny, Rebecca Joseph’s first collection, through a mutual friend.

Cacao Nib Oat Cookies

0

Cacao Nib Oat CookiesInspired by one of my clients who bakes delicious cookies, I adapted a recipe from Baker Bettie to make (almost) sugar free, healthy cookies!

There is a little bit of butter and a little bit of sugar just to make the base of the cookie mixture. If you divide that amount out over 16 cookies though it is hardly anything. The best thing is that they are mainly oats and cacao nibs! They are pretty filling because of the oat content which means they keep you fuller for longer.

Cranberry, Raisin, Date, Super Seed Flapjack

flapjack

Growing up my Mum made her famous flapjacks every Sunday for me and my two brothers to chomp on at school. Although they were delicious, other kids thought that too so made us very tempting offers. We ended up trading them in the school playground for other kids chocolate bars!

Fast forward 20 odd years, I still really love a good, wholesome, gooey flapjack. The problem with ones you buy in the shop or bakery is that they tend to have a lot of sugar and syrup mixed in which makes them not so good for the body, especially in January as most of the country seem to be on a ‘diet’!

Easy Peasy Sweet Potato Soup

0

IMG_2555We all know that vegetables are REALLY REALLY important for our bodies. Unfortunately they are easily the last thing we think about when planning our lunch and dinner. One of the best things (not the only thing, I am not that sad!), about the Autumn settling in, is that a warm bowl of soup gets the taste buds following more than ever.

Soup is cheap, easy and usually packed full of goodness. Making it from scratch is even better than buying it out as you can throw in tons of veg and it usually (I have made a couple of mistakes!), tastes amazing.

One of my favourites is Sweet Potato soup served with warm, crusty wholemeal bread and salad. This is one of my husband’s favourites and due to the high content of sweet potato, it fills you right up for a long time. Perfect for a hearty dinner as well as a sustainable lunch!

Breakfast Superstar – Bircher Muesli

0

bircher-muesli1aI have seen ‘bircher muesli’ recipes batting around for a while. I had never tried it as it seemed too much hassle and was not really sure if I would like it. However, one of my lovely clients shared with me her new found love for bircher muesli and raved about how quick and easy it was. As I am always on the look out for quick and easy recipes, (especially breakfasts with a couple of 6.30am clients through the week), I  whipped my own version that night and was truly amazed (I am not exaggerating!).

Top 3 Healthy Cookery Books

0

Quinoa Risotto from Helmsley & HelmsleyOver the last year, the healthy cookery book scene has literally exploded.

I think this explosion is partly down to the popularity of food blogs, the rise in Instagram and Society’s general shift in attitude as to what it means to be healthy. These factors along with others, has brought healthy eating to the forefront of many people’s minds.

This rise in popularity and interest is of course only a good thing (in my opinion), however I have been surprised at the high percentage of these ‘healthy cookery books’ which are complied by (for the want of a better phrase) ‘non-professionally trained chefs / cooks’.

My experience of following healthy recipes from self proclaimed food bloggers has been a mixed bag. Some have been absolutely fantastic, some  pretty awful (just ask my husband!).

After careful consideration, I have chosen a small collection of ‘tools’ which me (and my clients!) cannot do without. My clients know them well, and now you too can experience the freedom of movement and relaxation from a Dalby Pilates class.

Exercise Detox

0

DSC_7133 (2)The chances are you have been really good through January and managed to stick to your New Year Resolutions – first of all, well done for that! As I said in my Food Detox blog, although I do not usually recommend detoxs per-say, for some of you it maybe the only time of year where you review your current state of health and fitness, so it is worth capitalising on the opportunity! Now into February, typically those ‘good intentions’ have slipped away a little, or a lot! The real trick to leading a healthy life, is to have a sustainable routine that works for you, your life and your body. The best thing about exercise is that there is an enormous choice of sports, gyms, classes and activities you can partake in. It just takes a bit of time and willingness to try new things out in order to find your exercise match.
