Monday Motivation: Juicing & Eating Raw

MONDAY MOTIVATION: JUICING & EATING RAW Forget extreme diets and calorie counting, the secret to being bikini ready is eating (or drinking) your five-a-day. Bikini season is upon us and with it comes the panic and dread, followed by excessive calorie counting and new exercise fads until everyone is hungry, tired and cranky. First of all, let’s get one thing straight: you can’t eat unhealthily all year round and then expect to be able to diet your way into a bikini in three to four…

Monday Motivation: Morning Yoga for Wellbeing

MONDAY MOTIVATION: MORNING YOGA Rise, shine, breathe and conquer the day ahead. “Work hard, stay positive and get up early. It’s the best part of the day” – Sr. G Allen I won’t lie, I’m not a morning person, I snooze my alarm three to four times and then role out of the bed and shuffle to the kitchen for coffee. However, studies show that people who are successful are early risers and so in the last few months I’ve turned back the time…

Our Juicing Journey Update

Our Juicing Journey Update

A few weeks ago, in a bid to reboot our health and wellness, I decided to buy a juicer and put Giovanni and I on a juice cleanse. In the past I identified the terms ‘juice cleanse’ or ‘juice detox’ with a diet that consists of consuming solely fruit and veg juices for at least a week; in other words, something uncomfortable and not enjoyable.  However, juicing is, as with most plant-based ‘diets’, less of a diet and more of a lifestyle change, the benefits…

You may wonder how a vegetarian would struggle to include fruits or vegetables in their daily diet, as surely it composes a huge percentage of what one eats? While I do try to include vegetables with my cooked meals, and take fruit in my bag for…

Knowledge is Power | #BCAStrength

I was so happy this month when I was asked to get involved in promoting the BCA Campaign in collaboration with Estée Lauder; Evelyn H. Lauder launched The BCA Campaign in 1992 with the creation of the Pink Ribbon, the universal symbol for breast health, learning that the pink ribbon started with Estée Lauder in the same year I was born made me feel even more personally connect to this wonderful company and it’s biggest philanthropic initiative. I always wear my pink ribbon with pride…

Meal Planning Tips for Busy Lifestyles | #AD

What’s in your lunch box today? Is it something healthy? Did you even manage to pack a lunch or do you prefer to grab something in the shop during your lunch hour? When you live a busy life, with very little time to think about what you’re going to have for breakfast in the morning, not alone what you’ll have for lunch later that day, then it can become easy to pick up bad habits, make bad food choices and spend unnecessary amounts of…

Regenerate Your Smile

Regenerate Your Smile

Earlier in the week I talked about the benefits of eating fresh fruit; starting your day off the fruit gives you fast releasing energy from the easily digestible carbohydrates present in fruits (read more here). However, many fruits are high acid foods, which means while they’re good for digestion they’re not your teeth’s best friends! Enamel erosion is more common today than ever before because we are consuming more high acid foods, such as juices and smoothies; add to that staining caused by coffee…
