There was a time when #StrongNotSkinny was my favourite hashtag – rewind back to 2015 and you’ll probably find it on all my Instagram posts. At the time, I was new to weight training, and found the idea of focussing on strength as opposed to thinness so empowering. I loved everything the hashtag embodied –… Read More The Problem with #StrongNotSkinny
‘Intuitive eating’ is a phrase that is thrown around a lot on social media these days, with little appreciation of what it actually entails. Just because you’ve stopped counting macros, doesn’t mean you are eating intuitively! The term ‘intuitive eating’ was coined by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch, who wrote a book outlining this way… Read More Interested in Intuitive Eating?
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! Influential people on social media have begun accepting that calories are a thing, and that the whole ‘clean-eating’ trend is kinda BS. Or at least some of them are.. I love this change. I… Read More An Apology

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’m a huge nerd when it comes to books – I could happily read for hours when given the chance! One of the things I’m most looking forward to about Christmas (apart from the copious amount of food and sleep) is getting a chance to catch up on some reading. Yeah, my life is wild.. Anyhow,… Read More Gift Guide: Health & Fitness Books
It’s been a while since I’ve shared a recipe – once college gets busy I find myself having zero time to create new recipes! A few weekends ago I had the chance to try out Madeline Shaw’s almond butter blondie recipe, and just had to share it! I first tasted the blondies at a Linwoods… Read More Almond Butter Blondies
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.
