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 [...]

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 [...]

Get your CHILL on !

By |April 13th, 2013|

Hello from St Bart’s !

The weather is warm, the water is clear and the people are lovely. I’m in paradise

It has been a busy week and I have just finished work for the day. Time to get my chill on at Nikki Beach.

The Caribbean is a magical part of the world. Being here gives me a feeling of joy and oneness with nature. There is an abundance of wildlife (I even have a baby [...]

Be Yourself. No More. No Less.

By |April 6th, 2013|

Be Yourself. No More. No Less.

Positively Positive share a great article above on why we should stand proud with what we have, how far we have come, what we look like and who we are. Sure, we all set goals to become better in all areas but loving ourselves the way we are is just as important as stretching ourselves to reach those targets.

Ever heard of overweight individuals who are forced to accept their bodies mentally before they are physically able shed the weight?

Similarly, we need to accept where [...]

Orange carrots. A thing of the past?

By |April 4th, 2013|

Ever wondered why Carrots are orange?

Well actually, there are many different varieties of carrots as Prof Sue Hartley outlines in one of her recent lectures and in fact not all carrots are orange at all. Some carrots are white and others are purple!

If you do a little research as to why the most popular carrots are orange, you will come across some serious discussion surrounding the Dutch cultivation of orange carrots. Some suggest that white and purple carrots were selectively bred many 100’s of years ago in an effort to [...]

Is EASTER Making Us Fat?

Excited for Easter !?

We will be heading to Bequia tomorrow morning for the weekend sailing regatta. Known as the best weekend of the year in the islands, the sun will be shining and the sandy haven jam packed with festivities. My easter brownies and cookies are in the fridge and we are almost ready to set sail.
