5 ‘Superfoods’ that actually taste nice! 

Let me start off by saying, I’m not an expert. Nor do I eat perfect every single day. But I like to think that I’m treating my body better these days and my eating habits are definitely improving! It’s all about finding foods that excite you and that you look forward to eating. And I serious can’t muster up excitement for kale. I really tried, but no. Instead I’ve listed the foods that have known health benefits that actually are yummy. At least to me!

1. Avocado 

Yeah, nothing new here. The obsession is real though. Healthy source of fat, fill you up for longer and can be worked into a variety of meals.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar

I’ve only recently discovered this and I am obsessed. Splash it on salads and veg and it’s delish. It has heaps of benefits, and is perfect as it’s getting warmer. I love it on tuna salads.

3. Cacao powder 

Well this is basically just healthy chocolate powder. Enough said. Add to anything. Smoothies, protein balls, baking, oats…

4. Tuna

I know there is nothing new about tuna, but seriously I can’t get enough lately. Which is useful at uni, brain food. Anyone else feeling the obsession?

5. Sweet Potato 

This is something I always keep in the house as it comes in so useful. Chop into fries, bake as a jacket, boil into a Thai curry or roast. 

Let me know if you like this post and I’ll go on the hunt for more yummy healthy treats. Also let me know any of your faves.

Favourite workout accessories…


It’s that time of the year where we’re all getting ready to start working for that summer body. I’m all for the whole ‘you don’t need any equipment ‘ exercise approach, all you really need is motivation. But for those of us who love to have all the latest things to help us along and get us all geared up to sweat, here’s my favourite fitness accessories I’m loving at the moment.

Women’s Health Magazine

This is my first time buying  this magazine and I bloody love it. I haven’t even finished reading it yet, it’s rammed full of tips, workout routines, recipes, advice plus beauty tips and other general magazine goodness. I was apprehensive of the price but it’s worth every penny. It’s like a little book. And the workouts are perfect to keep coming back to. And the recipes. Love.

This is Yoga – Tara Stiles 4 DVD box set

I’m not all for exercise DVDs if I’m honest. I mean, that’s what youTubes for right? But I invested in this when I had no wifi in my accommodation and it was a life saver. Plus this box set has every kind of yoga workout plus a pose guide. Head to Amazon for a cheap buy.

Resistance bands 

I don’t use these as much as I should but they are great for helping stretch those muscles. They also can be used in a workout, look online for some inspiration. Use the band against the muscle you want to work as an effective and less sweaty workout.

Gym gloves

As soon as I started lifting weights my hands when to shreds. Especially us girls who don’t want peeling blistered hands. They don’t need to be expensive, just make sure you protect those hands. They also help your hands stop slipping.

Yoga mat strap 

As well as the obvious, this can also double up as a tool in yoga, helping you practice those poses where you can’t… Quite… Reach.

Phone exercise arm band

Have you ever wanted to listen to some tunes in your workout, shove your iPod down your bra and when it slips down you have that awkward rummage happening. Well yeah. Here you go. Plus you can also use tracking apps such as strava to monitor your workout. 

Seed shot

This may sound a bizarre accessory but seriously, it’s a fab alternative to shoving donuts in your face post sweat. These are low calorie and contain healthy seeds and dried fruit, with a tasty twist. Yum.

That’s it for now! Hope this motivates you to get your sweat on!

Let me know what you think or  any other accessories I can get my hands on.
