The importance of setting goals

One thing that I have learnt since I started taking my fitness seriously, is to never underestimate the importance of having a goal to focus on. Time after time I would aimlessly wander into the gym and do the same thing every day (cardio, of course) and wonder why I wasn't seeing the results that… Continue reading The importance of setting goals

We aren’t all self-obssesed…

Probably one of the most important blog posts that I've written, and I think this is something that needs to be said.

First of all, I… Continue reading We aren’t all self-obssesed…

Edamame Pasta Dish

I've recently become so obsessed with using pasta alternatives such as edamame or black bean spaghetti! I prefer it to whole wheat spaghetti, as it actually offers nutritional benefits such as 22g of protein per 50g (amazing!) plus it's also lower in carbohydrates, with only 16g per 100g.  Also, it is gluten-free, vegan, and a great source of… Continue reading Edamame Pasta Dish

The Impact of Diet on Mental Health

Yes, food really does affect your mood. When you think about what effects your mental health, the typical answers are stress, self-esteem, and relationship issues, to name but a few, however, we often underestimate the impact that food has on our mental health. When you consider the science behind it and the growing evidence that food… Continue reading The Impact of Diet on Mental Health
