Until very recently, I was completely unaware of the world domination of counting macros and yet another acronym, IIFYM. I’m all about longevity when it comes to my eating and exercise habits, so I don’t really follow any fads or extreme diets as I find they don’t work for me long-term. Also, if something appears […]

Last week, I had the opportunity to do a live online interview with Yvonne from The Raw Food Coach and pick her very knowledgeable brain. I wanted to speak to her about what women in their 30s+ should be looking out for on the nutrition front – for example, What nutrients may we lack as […]

It’s February, the evenings are getting a bit longer, the promise of spring is in the air… But Operation Transformation is almost over – so what now? If, like many, you were following the leaders on TV and using their progress to motivate you, how will you keep on track for the coming weeks and […]

Too much smoked salmon, you say?

“What on earth will we do with all this leftover smoked salmon” said no-one in my house, ever. Until this weekend when I had over-bought (as if!) smoked salmon for some food tasters I was planning for Unislim. So I had a little look on-the-line and saw that there are plenty of healthy and simple […]

While out for dinner this weekend, my husband decided to order a scotch egg starter. “Are you mad” I said “they are so unhealthy!” Ah they’re not that bad – and they are so tasty – he replied. And I thought to myself – he’s right, they are really, really tasty. So why can’t we […]

If, like me, you are partial to a Roses sweet (or 10!) at this time of year then I might just have the answer to your chocolate snacking woes. There are some lovely alternative for the festive season that are much healthier, and also guilt free. You can make 10-12 dark chocolate strawberries using about […]

“Runners on the Storm…”

Storm Desmond has passed but not without leaving much devastation in its wake. Not least, the innumerable Teresa Mannion copy-cats, warning of the ravages of the storm, beseeching us not to go outside! Inspired by this, I decided to go out for a run yesterday as the tail-end of Desmond was passing. Myself and some […]

As part of my role as a Unislim weight management consultant, I see that this time of year can really put a strain on your resolve and dedication to eating healthy and staying in shape. No matter how much of an iron-cast will you have, you would need to be made of stone to not […]

Fake-Aways are the hottest new thing in the food arena – carb-free pizzas, home-made and healthy Indian curries, authentic Thai food. You name it, it’s been faked-away. So I’ve decided to attempt a healthy version of one of my favourite no-no’s – McDonalds. I’m partial to the  Sweet Chilli Crispy Chicken wrap. But at 800+ […]

Autumnal AWESOMEness

I don’t have much to say here – just that this picture is one motivation to go running outside in the autumn/winter. Look at the colours, contrasts and beauty of nature. I am aware that to take this I needed to stop running and flute around trying to find the “best light” to capture the amazing […]
