WHERE DO YOU FIND YOUR FITNESS MOTIVATION?

  Image Credit All that stands between you and the body you deserve is your motivation. But when you’re tired, hungover, feeling a bit grumpy, or just not feeling it at all, how do you force yourself to go to the gym, for a run, or to your class?

HEALTHY HARISSA CHICKEN

B FRESH COLD PRESSED JUICES – REVIEW

B FRESH COLD PRESSED JUICES – REVIEW

I have always been one that loves a nice cold glass of fresh juice in the morning. The problem is the general juices you get in the supermarket are pretty standard. Orange, Pineapple, Apple or Tropical. I mean talk about boring. There is no jazz in these flavours and they can get quiet repetitive. This is why I started to opt for drinking smoothies. They are nutritious and packed with vitamins. Not to mention full of flavour. I could create anything I wanted. One problem. I was rubbish at making smoothies….

LOVE COCOA – THE DEVILISHLY DARK LETTERBOX COLLECTION

In the past weeks I have had so much fun using Love Cocoa’s devilishly dark letterbox collection in my cooking and recipes. Not to mention really enjoyed just indulging in some of their bars too.

The brains behind the company is no other than the great great great grandson of Cadbury’s, so the standard are high. In the dark chocolate range there is one of my favourite flavours. Mint.

SWEET POTATO HASH RECIPE

SWEET POTATO HASH RECIPE

There is one thing I love the most about a cooked breakfast and that is the hash brown, the crispy potato and onions is something I could eat all day. So I decided to try and replicate this in a much healthier way. I also happen to love sweet potato and its 1 of your 5 a day, so that was healthy point number one. Of course instead of deep frying the potato we would lightly fry it with the onions and garlic (of course) in some olive oil. Add…
