The time between Christmas and New Year’s is a great opportunity to reflect on the past year, and see how far you’ve come. I’ve been looking at my goals and resolutions from the past few years, and wow I’ve changed! I’m cringing so hard at my old resolutions – they’re the usual clichés of ‘lose… Read More 2018 Resolutions
I have been a huge fan of Hazel Wallace, aka The Food Medic, for quite some time. She was one of the first people I followed when I set up my Instagram account 3 years ago, and it’s been cool to see her exponential growth on social media. She was #goals to me for so… Read More The Food Medic: A review
In recent times, evidence-based nutrition has become cool. I don’t know how that happened, but I’m pretty happy about this development!

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. I… Read More Chocolate Protein Zoats

It can be so confusing to know which supplements to take, and which to avoid, especially when starting out in the gym.… Read More Supplements which aren’t worth the money
I feel like doing a ‘monthly favourites’ blog post is such a stereotypical blogger thing, but I’m going to just roll with it for now! So here’s my monthly assortment of things I’m liking at the moment – enjoy! Book: I’ve just finished ‘Gut’ by Guilia Enders, and I was a huge fan! It was… Read More August Favourites
