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 [...]

REAL advice on which juicer is best for you !

By |July 10th, 2013|

REAL advice on which juicer is best for YOU !

I have many people asking for my opinion on the best juicer to buy and in the last few years, I have spent a great deal of time talking to people in the industry, trying juicers first hand and researching their mechanical parts to understand their structure and how they work.

What have I come up with?

Well, unfortunately, there is no one juicer that suits everyone. Sorry!

There are just too many different factors involved, from produce types to cleaning, price, primary use, size and space!

As I spent more time in the juicing maze, I found a number [...]

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 [...]

Thirsty Thursday !

Oooh so excited to share this Thirsty Thursday recipe with you. It’s so simple I had to double take and ask myself if I am really going to post this!? The truth is, I nearly fell over this morning when I drank my mango passion and I decided it was time I blogged about it.

3 ripe mangoes
2 ripe passionfruit
1/2 cup filtered water

Peel mangoes and remove flesh from seeds. Add mango chunks to blender. Cut passionfruit in half and scoop pulp into blender.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pour in 1/2 cup of filtered water [...]

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 [...]
