So you’ve over-indulged a little. An extra piece of pie, a bar of chocolate, or a few too many vinos. That’s cool – it’s totally human to let loose once in a while. Bring yourself back to balance with this deliciously nourishing smoothie. Packed with vitamins, hydrating coconut water and potassium, this one is sure to make you feel fabulous again in no time.
When the temperatures drop and the days get shorter, nothing hits the spot like a bowl of warm soup. Store-bought varieties are convenient, but they can be shockingly salty, and packed with heavy cream. This recipe is deliciously nourishing, surprisingly filling, and low carb. A great recipe for rest-days from the gym, curled up on the couch with your favourite blanket.
To get beautiful skin (I’m looking at you, Scarlett Johansson*), healthy fats should be an essential part of your diet. Your nutrition is paramount in achieving supple, hydrated, wrinkle-free skin. The recipe? Essential fatty acids, which irritatingly your body can’t make on its own. This dish is sure to boost your natural glow – chocked full of EFA’s with avocado, mackerel and caviar.

So you’ve eaten and drunk a little more over the holidays. That’s cool. Now’s the time to make you’re comeback for a healthy start to 2015. Filling up on fibre-rich foods such as avocado is the perfect way to beat the bloat, and the quickest way to do that a smoothie. I’m all about making things easier after a hectic festive season, so lets just blend and kick back…
Cauliflower (member of the cruciferous vegetables) is often overshadowed by its lovely green cousin broccoli. However, Cauli deserves a regular rotation in your diet because it contains its own impressive array of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other phytochemicals. Get your dose in this simple but tasty soup!
Brussels sprouts aren’t amongst the most well-loved of veggies, but definitely worth a place in your fridge. Not only are they are a good source of protein, iron and potassium (which offer a range of health benefits), but are also high in fibre, keeping you fuller for longer. The lemon in this recipe takes them up a notch from your usual sprouts – adding zing to their earthy flavour.
A beautiful detoxing soup, supercharged with protein from a deliciously soft poached egg. Great on rest days, or when you’ve over-done it a bit in the desserts department.
