Thirsty Thursday – Lime Water Challenge

By |August 22nd, 2013|

Here's my fast remedy to morning energy, even for those of who claim you are not a "morning person" and may begin each morning rolling out of bed, falling over your feet.

Do daily Affirmations really work?

By |August 15th, 2013|

Did you know our brains are wired to think around 60,000-70,000 thoughts per day.. AND approximately 70 percent of those thoughts are naturally negative?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just doing a little speedy math, that is a minimum of around 42,000 negative thoughts per day!

The good news is, Deepak Chopra (world’s leading biomedical scientist on the mind) believes we can change our thought processes by re-wiring our neural brain networks (nerve patterns that create our thoughts) through lingual programming. Aka: Affirming something positive out loud!

We can think these positive thoughts, however it is best [...]

Cacao on the brain?

By |July 24th, 2013|

This week I had a mad craving for chocolate!

Strange, as I never really liked chocolate until I began enjoying raw cocoa shakes.

I started off with once a fortnight, then once a week and pretty soon I wanted it all the time. The more I had, the more I wanted.

This made me wonder about the raw food revolution, the high profits of raw cocoa manufacturers, the open tickets to cacao that fitness trainers and nutritionists were giving their clients and how over-consumption of this tasty little product may be affecting [...]

When the couch calls…

By |July 9th, 2013|

Today we went into St Vincent’s bustling town Kingstown. It was the official day of Carnival 2013 and we were excited to get road side to see all the action. The local people were wearing bright creative costumes and smiles poured through the grand stand as each section moved onto the main stage for judging. An incredible sight!

The only trouble was.. my legs were tired, I felt exhausted, thought about the couch and began to yawn! What was wrong with me?

Of course as a fitness and health coach, I [...]

Absolicious Apple Pie

By |July 4th, 2013|

After 3 days of juicing greens and a long week working on projects, I’m ready to treat myself to a massage, some relaxation and incredible food. We are planning some mysterious mexican dishes for our Sunday meal and I just can’t think of a better dessert than good old fashioned Apple Pie!
But .. why do our stomachs turn, our fear levels rise and our hearts sink when we hear these two words. Is it because we are desperately desiring just a tiny taste of the sweet combination of fruit [...]

True Love Smoothie

By |June 14th, 2013|

It’s THIRSTY THURSDAY and I already know what the favourite will be on the menu today.
As I sit here on a small island in the Caribbean (you would think I’m about to say “looking out over the turquoise sea and coconut trees”), I’m actually snug as a bug  indoors as it pours with rain outside (you guessed it, hurricane season started early this year!). With the downpour and cool breeze, I have a craving for something that’s going to give my soul a punch of flavour and the [...]

Healthy Blueberry Muffin Cake

By |May 27th, 2013|

Hi everyone,

This week I just really felt like CAKE !

Although to be our best selves we do need to persist on the right path, strive for inner peace, motivate ourselves each day, find contentment and detach from those things which hold us back, make us needy, fearful and self destructive..

We also need to be able to distinguish between severe emotional attachment to certain food types and simply acquiring a taste for something and enjoying the moment ! So much of what we hear in the nutritional world relates to [...]

How do you treat your FEET !?

By |May 15th, 2013|

How well do you treat your feet on a daily basis?

Check in with them, do they feel squashed, neglected, tired and sore?

What type of shoes do you wear?

Do you spend time barefoot daily to allow your feet to heal, relax and soak up the earth’s energy or are they constantly hiding in the dark unable to breathe?

Our feet are good indicators of how we treat our bodies and minds.

I bet your wondering how your favourite pair of jimmy choo’s could possibly be holding you back in life!!!!

Well actually, a [...]

Eat Clean – Dinner Recipes

By |May 13th, 2013|

If you’re anything like me, you LOVE variety and good taste when it comes to food !

Some may not know this about me but I’m not the healthy girl who chooses lousy tasting meals just because they’re good for me. Huh?

People often ask me, how do you eat carrot sticks and feel satisfied? Well besides the fact that I love a good carrot stick if it’s smothered in an amazing olive basil dip, I really only eat things I love !!  [...]</div>					</div>

Crunchy Nutritious Granola !

By |April 27th, 2013|

Healthy breakfast options for us almost always still circulate around a brilliant bircher muesli, appetising omelettes and pretty parfaits !! It occurred to me this morning as I checked the ingredients and watched the sailing team spoon out their #1 breakfast choice into their bowls, some people still just LOVE a good granola!!

Unfortunately, a majority of the granola that is pre-packaged in supermarkets is fully-loaded with refined sugars to enhance flavour and help increase [...]
