Breakfast just got better!
My new breakfast inspiration and ritual is all about simple, nutritious and delicious. I'm using the school holidays and the less stressful, calmer and slower mornings to get a better breakfast inside me. My usual cornflakes(my fall back breakfast for speed) is just so dull. So much so that I'd often just skip breakfast all together. So all change. Here’s my Peach Melba Chia breakfast pot. Light, simple yet full of goodness. Great for Summer, and so many possibilities to change it up for what you love ‘ have to hand.Read More
Sip on these winter cupfuls and you’ll radiate warmth - perfect right now. A warming and soothing spiced almond milk - great if you I feel a little under the weather, and a deliciously quirky take on a festive favourite. Enjoy, and of course let me know how you get on.Read More
These are a couple of recipes that I shared in my Fertility Yoga Workshop at The Stables Yoga Centre in York at the weekend. It's always nice to have a little sweet hit and a warm drink an afternoon of yoga, and so I made some treats that were nutrient dense and fertility focused yet still delicious too. But they are perfect not just for women trying to conceive or pregnant women, but actually for anyone look for a yummy treat that's actually rather good for you too - avoiding refined sugar and processed foods and packing in good fats, antioxidants, vitamins and trace minerals. Here's the recipes. Enjoy!Read More
I always love to share a little something edible and homemade at the end of my 'Slow Sunday' yoga workshops. After an afternoon of letting go, relaxing and nurturing the body and mind is lovely to revitalise with a small delicious treat. I often make chocolates, but this week I pushed the boat out (as it was the last Slow Sunday before a Summer break) and made some nutritious raw brownies and some cooling jasmine and melon iced tea. Sound good? Here's the recipes.....Read More
Fertility - the whole body view
When it comes to trying to conceive there is so much to think about. Being in the best shape both physically and mentally can really help when trying for a baby. That's why in my upcoming course Fertility Yoga course I will be providing you with information from other local experts about how different approaches when trying to conceive can help you - such as acupuncture, reflexology and nutrition.
Here's some really interesting information about food and fertility (in particular sugar). For more information on my six week course Fertility Yoga Course please take a look at the details here.Read More
Chai latte - is just the perfect drink at this time of year! It ooozes gorgeous festive spices, it's warming, it smells fab while you are making it and tastes even better. Adding frothy milk really makes it for me (and makes it a latte, not just a cup of chai), but you can just add cold milk if you prefer. Best enjoyed snuggled up in a blanket :) Enjoy!Read More
Ready for a delicious, healthy, and quick-to-make breakfast? I love pancakes for breakfast, but time is often not on my side! But these are super quick and easy - you do the whole process in a blender. And using a teacup for measuring saves time too. (The pancakes may vary a little from cup to cup but it’s really the ratio that makes this recipe work, so don’t worry).
Since they are sweetened with natural nutrient-rich bananas and maple syrup and use whole grains and nuts instead of flour, you can happily eat these pancakes with gusto. They are filling, healthy and warming - perfect for colder mornings. Yum!Read More
