The rise of healthy eating and wellness in the past few years has brought with it many new trends, among them the concept of ‘healthy treats’. Instagram is full of raw/vegan/paleo/sugar-free/gluten-free/flour-free/wheat-free baked goods to satisfy your sweet tooth. Who wouldn’t want a ‘guilt-free’ way to enjoy brownies, cake, muffins, and everything in-between? I’ll admit, I… Read More Why I’m Saying ‘No’ to Healthy Baking
This is not the blog post I planned on publishing today. It is, in fact, one I never really planned on writing. I’ve thought about it many times, but never have had the courage to be honest – like properly honest. I’ve somehow built up a following on social media from being into health &… Read More Let’s get Honest
I love the New Year, and the optimism that it brings. Before I get carried away with setting my 2017 goals, I thought I’d take some time to reflect on 2016 and what I’ve learned. There’s no point launching into a New Year and just repeating the same mistakes! 2016 was a bit of a… Read More Lessons from 2016
The New Year is just around the corner, and with it comes the ever-popular resolutions. A pretty common one is the desire to become more organised, and sort your shit out.

Anyhow,… Read More Gift Guide: Health & Fitness Books

I’ve decided to set a little challenge for myself this November – to adopt a more positive attitude for the month. I began cultivating a positive mindset over summer, and by the end of August I’d never felt so calm and happy! I had great intentions to keep it up while in college, but I… Read More No Negativity November
There has been a huge movement towards tracking various health behaviours lately, with people measuring everything from daily macros and steps to sleep stages, heart rate variability, and more. Is sleep tracking a useful strategy to improve your health, or just another time-consuming gimmick? Sleep is hugely important for pretty much every aspect of health.… Read More Should you track your sleep?
I made this recipe as part of a collaboration I did with Ryan from Endorphin Stew a while back. It’s a delicious variation on French Toast which is high in protein and really simple to make! You can find the recipe here.
Zoats (aka zucchini oats) are my current favourite breakfast! The recipe is super simple and easy to make, perfect for when you’re busy in the mornings. There’s so much more volume than regular porridge, so you’ll be fuller longer, with only marginally more calories, and the added benefit of an extra serving of veggies.
