Last week I flew to Italy for the first time ever. I’d heard nothing but great things about the country, yet still didn’t really know what to expect. Every single person that I’d spoken to gushed about how great the food is out there and recommended places to visit, yet where I was to visit wouldn’t really be under my control. I was travelling with two close friends of mine- sisters- and their family, so the itinerary would be down to them, which I kind of liked. I’m pretty chilled when it comes to making plans, so if it were down to me we’d have probably spent two days just deciding where to visit (and I was there for a three day trip, so that definitely would have been no good).
Earlier today I stumbled across a little gem in the heart of Soho, London, and I just have to share it with you all…
Now there are thousands of places to dine in London- some good, some bad, some incredible- but sometimes this just makes life that little bit harder. There’s almost too much choice and when it comes to food-based decision-making, I have to say that I’m usually pretty indecisive. I always find myself going back to same old restaurants (my faves) time and time again, as I know that I’m guaranteed a great meal and won’t leave feeling disappointed. However, this does mean that when I do find places worthy of adding to the list, I am absolutely over the moon. Today, Tabun Kitchen made the cut!
Using the freshest, high quality ingredients the team have developed meals for three different training goals; BURN (fat loss and shredding), BALANCE (weight management) and BUILD (muscle gain).
With the meals designed to accelerate training results and have a direct impact on energy levels, it all sounds like a very smart idea. The team are even on hand to offer advice around which meals you should opt for in order to see the best results. I don’t know about you but I’m eager to see what’s on offer!
Happy Halloween! It’s that time of year once again when all things strange, spooky and out-of-the-norm become the norm! With all the sweet (tricks and) treats around us, it’s sometimes a little hard to stick to your healthy habits. Well, that was until I collated this wicked list of all things healthy and Halloween from different sources across the web.
Here it is, my top healthy Halloween treats list…
I stumbled across Eat Pretty by Jolene Hart a few weeks ago and instantly added it to my birthday wishlist. With my super hectic schedule I, unfortunately, usually have very little time to sit and dig into a good book. Perhaps that’s why I didn’t feel the urge to buy it there and then. However for the weeks that followed that oh-so pretty little cover kept popping into mind. Being the health enthusiast (some may prefer to describe as obsessive) that I am, I was eager to see what Eat Pretty had to offer.
I won’t lie or pretend to be a beauty know-all. I keep my make up to a minimal and have sensitive skin, so use a lot of natural products. Health and fitness are my fortes. Anything to do with looking great through exercise or lifestyle and I’m on it. Which is why, I would soon discover, that Eat Pretty is be perfect book for me.
Weeks later my birthday arrived and I wasn’t disappointed. My sister presented me with Eat Pretty, wrapped so neatly looking almost as delicious as the content. I was soon to get stuck in.
Jolene Hart teaches that amplifying beauty doesn’t have to involve countless vanity products and tools- it can simply be achieved through what you eat. Hart condenses masses of beneficial food information into need-to-know snippets all in one cute little book, providing the perfect summary of what to eat to boost what health and beauty areas. Olive oil for sensitive skin, anybody? Butternut squash for healthy hair and ginger to warn off colds… The list goes on as well as recipes and food tips for all seasons.
I won’t give too much away, but Eat Pretty is one health book that’s worth a read. I’m not saying to ditch the mascara, bronzer or eyeliner and especially not to drop the moisturiser. But you may find that you feel more beautiful, healthy and energetic within yourself if you pick up this little treat. We really are what we eat and Eat Pretty provides the secrets to achieving ultimate natural beauty, inside and out.
