Smoothe your way to greatness

If you’re like me, I know what you’re thinking: I don’t have time to make smoothies in the morning – I am on the go and time is the essence. I hear you so here’s what I do. The best way is to do them as you prepare your dinner – pop them straight int…

The Social Side of things

C.A.T.S Challenge is a way for us to clean up our system from toxins and keep the bad habits away – at least for up to 28 days. We can all benefit from such a diet, even for a limited given time. Our body feels better, our mind clears, we sleep better, we look better……

Guilt-free treats

Guilt-free treats Is there such a thing? The good news is… YES!!!! There is, plenty of them too. Born and raised amidst French baguettes, pain au chocolat and patisserie, believe me, when it comes to finding a way to eat the things I love without the guilt, I accept the mission! Over the years I…

Hydrate for detox, weight loss and clarity!

Yes, water is the cheapest, purest and most unappreciated resource in the world. Most children born in developed countries have no gratitude for what is the most beneficial source of minerals and refreshing drink you should have. They take it for granted. Of course they do! There are so many alternatives all around us, why…

I just miss the carb!

How many times have I heard this? There is a perception out there that carbs are pasta, bread, rice. All the “bad” things we take out when starting a diet. Fun Fact: most things you eat that are not protein are pretty much carbs. I am no nutritionist but I know a little about food…

Gimme some sugar

Withdrawal symptoms from quitting SUGAR are not fun but somehow we need to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I remember reading about this running coach who volunteered to quit Sugar for 30 days. Day 1 was a false start! sounds like me… but day 2 he started again and went on…

Got cravings? Fear not, here are some options.

Got cravings? Good – treat yourself! First of all, you are doing so good, you are changing your habits, you are doing something about the “not-so-good” things in your life. Tap yourself on the back! Now let’s face it, you are also human! This means, cravings are going to get to you, especially around just…

Getting Started!

It is the starting that stops most people. Sometimes you just see what needs to be achieved but you just can’t think of the journey, or you see it and you’re thinking “there is no way I can reach that”. It’s all a bit too hard. Here is a fact: we are all different, and…

Are you a Caffeine addict?

We can always make fun of it but ask yourself: Are you a caffeine addict? By now the side effects would start to wear off. You may have been used to your morning coffee and perhaps one at morning tea or after lunch when you feel really sleepy? If this is the case, then I…

Eating Healthy on a budget – no excuses!

Too many people associate the concept of eating healthy with breaking the bank. I call this an excuse. When I see people buy takeaway and claim that buying some nice fresh produce is not something they can afford every week, it makes me scream. Being raised in a very modest family, I have always been…
