Easy Peasy Sweet Potato Soup


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!

Healthy Eating through Pregnancy: out with the old in with the new


Healthy Eating through PregnancyAs some of you may already know, around 4 months ago I fell pregnant for the first time! It was very difficult for me in the first few months to firstly try and hide my slowly expanding waist and chest line, and secondly to keep teaching with the same energy and vigour.

As a Pilates teacher, your tummy and body shape are scrutinised so I was conscious that my changing physic would raise a few eyebrows; not to mention the daily attire of leggings and tops which were getting too tight and VERY uncomfortable.

My demonstrations rapidly declined to a minimum because a knew that some moves were not advisable even at an early stage. Along with bloating and nausea I really did not feel able to exercise myself never mind demonstrating the Pilates 100 (exercise) in class.

Breakfast Superstar – Bircher Muesli


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!).
