My mental battle with the fitness industry

For those of you who know me and for those of you who don’t, you may not be aware that almost 3 years ago I decided to stop doing fitness shoots completely. This was a decision that I had to make in order to bring myself back to the person who I really was: the […]

Post-workout Protein Energy Bites

These great little protein energy bites are perfect post-workout snacks on-the-go. Spend 15 minutes once a week making a batch, and you can keep them stored in the fridge. Alternatively, make 5 times the recipe below in a large blender once a month and freeze them. They would have defrosted by the time your workout […]

Summer BBQ Kebabs with Mint Yoghurt Dressing

Summer is here! This means longer days, sunshine and BBQs! This is no reason to steer from your healthy way of eating, all you need is some planning ahead. These colourful chicken and vegetable skewers are perfect to take along to a BBQ, and pair well with the fresh mint yogurt. Enjoy with a side […]

Are artificial sweeteners really a better choice?

Firstly I need to state that before I explain why artificial sweeteners may not be the better choice, I need to apologise.

The banana is a wonderful fruit to use in smoothies as the flavour is strong enough to hide a bitter vegetable like kale, but thankfully is no match to the delicious, […]

Prawn and Asparagus Stir-fry

Pair those glorious greens with plump prawns and you have a dinner that may just become your new favourite. The chillies are optional of course and can be eliminated completely, but that would be a […]

Chicken, Quinoa and Balsamic Drizzle

Quinoa is a great way to bulk up a meal if you are missing carbs. Its high in protein and so versatile. Here, we have roasted vegetables (with a nod to asparagus which are currently in season) and grilled chicken breasts, but the star of the show is the wickedly acidic balsamic reduction that brings […]

Citrus-and-spice Grilled Sea Bass with Veg Medley

Using whole spices, particularly if they have been toasted, is a great way to add more flavour to a dish without adding calories. Here, we combine the warm fragrant spices of coriander and cumin seeds with the zingy edge of citrus fruit. A beautiful fillet of sea bass and a veg medley – this dish […]

7 High Protein Desserts

We all love a sweet treat every now and then but how to curb that craving without feeling guilty?

So if you ‘need’ a sweet […]
