Luckiest girl

              To say I am the luckiest girl in the world is an understatement! My very understanding and patient partner Bought me this t-shirt to cheer me up after my weekend of depressive anxiety! For every man out there living with a woman going through hormonal “shit storms” please believe we don’t behave like psychos on purpose and your patience is much appreciated. Yes I do know I could look after myself better and I actually scared myself this weekend with my level of depression and… anxiety so a great wake up call to really look after myself and put all my learning into practice! It’s ironic that at the very time I am … Continue reading

Pay careful attention to anything you try to hide

When this picture landed in my news feed from Gretchen Rubin, http://gretchenrubin.com/, this morning I knew the time was right for me to share this post that has been mulling around in my head for a few weeks now! As I sit here full of cold and with a challenged pelvic floor! Pay careful attention to what you are trying to hide – me I was hiding the fact I am less than perfect, that I over commit myself and have down days where I look in the mirror and think not sure! BUT WHY? I am all about strong is the new skinny and don’t let perfect be the enemy of good! and boy this fraudulent feeling wasn’t helping my … Continue reading

Beacuse all new mums deserve to be treated like a Princess!

            Every new mum deserves to be treated like a Princess! http://www.fab-fitness.com/foofoo-fun-club/ With yesterday’s FABulous news the one thing that struck me was how beautiful both princesses skin looked and there she was in that beautiful flowery dress and moderate heels smiling and waving to the crowds of adoring fans. I bet Kathryn has been nourishing herself well through her pregnancy and doing the right kind of exercise appropriate for her. I also guarantee she won’t be going home (granted to her palace) and trying to survive on toast and coffee whilst looking after her new daughter. I know her fridge will be full of nourishing foods to ensure her body is best able to … Continue reading

Ginger Goji & Pecan Raw Chocolate

    Once you have made and tasted your own raw chocolate you will never touch a bar of chemically processed “chocolate” again!     Have you noticed they don’t call dairy milk or galaxy chocolate ? Here are the ingredients in a bar of “dairy milk” Ingredients: Full Cream Milk, Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Mass, Milk Solids, Emulsifiers (Soy Lecithin, 476), Flavours. Milk Chocolate contains Cocoa Solids 26%, Milk Solids 28%. Allergen Statement: Contains Milk and Soy.

The Ultimate Xmas Yule Log! Well I and all my tasters think so!

One of the things I love most about being a KSFL® Coach is it has taken me back to my roots. I used to spend hours and hours reading and re-reading the recipes in my mums Readers Digest magazines and thinking about what I would cook and bake. I studied Home Economics at University and as part of the Food Modules we had to do product development. I remember the product I developed for my final project was “low fat” chocolate cheesecake cups! How ironic yes I was an ’80’s teen and low fat was all the rage! How ironic that now here I am recommending good fat, non processed and cooking from scratch and absolutely abhor anything with low fat on … Continue reading

I can remember many a food induced hangover from sharing a tub of Ben & Jerry’s Phish food – other ice-creams are available and realising that even though the mini tubs of carte d’or I was scoffing each day were only 250 cals … Continue reading
