Ideas for rice cake toppings

For me if lunch is not leftovers from dinner and it’s not a simple salad, then its usually rice cakes. I like that compared to a sandwich you can get into your body more ‘good bits’ like veggies, protein and good fats and less starchy carbs (three rice cakes contains the amount of carbohydrates equivalent to one slice of bread). Here are some of my favourite combos:

  1. Cream cheese,  tomato and avocado
  2. Cream cheese, tomato and basil leaves
  3. Avocado, turkey and tomato
  4. Roast beef, crisp lettuce and cheese
  5. Ham, cheese and tomato
  6. Smashed avocado, cheese

The Problem with the Meal plans in most bikini body guides

As it is the beginning of the year I have observed a lot of people following an online fitness and nutrition plan, usually a downloadable ebook or an app. I think this is great! For the cost of one personal training session you can buy an entire 12 weeks worth of workouts. I have personally over the years enjoyed trying programs by Kayla Itsines, Ashy Bines, Jamie Eason and Emily Skye. Even though I’m a trainer I always love trying a different trainer’s

If you’re eating healthy, exercising regularly and living a healthy lifestyle but still can’t lose weight, chances are that your portions are too large. If tracking everything you eat in an app isn’t something you’ve got time for, here are some tips to help you be less hungry and eat less:

  • Drink a minimum of 3L water a day. Thirst is often mistaken for hunger.
  • Exercise at a moderate to high intensity three times a week. This intensity of exercise regulates your appetite control hormones (gherlin and leptin). It only needs to be

Well, my little girl is now two months old so I thought it would be a nice time to reflect on my birth experience and write it down so I can look  back on it in the future. I personally love reading people’s birth stories, so I hope some of you do, too! If not, feel free to skip this post as it’s a small deviation from my usual focus on wellbeing and fitness.

Quick & Clean Fried Rice

Quick and clean fried rice

This is a great meal to make for your weekly meal prep. I love to cook this up for dinner one night and then divide the leftovers into containers for my me and my husband to eat for lunch for the next three days. Eight meals is definitely worth spending 45 minutes in the kitchen for! Traditional Chinese fried rice can be a bit of a fat and carb bomb, so I designed this fried rice recipe to have plenty of vegetables and protein, and only a moderate amount of

Hi everyone!

It’s less than three weeks until my due date! Eek very exciting times! I can’t wait to hold my baby. I can’t wait to dress my baby in all the cute tiny clothes I have for it! I can’t wait to find out if it’s a boy or a girl. I can’t wait to go for walks with the pram. And I can’t wait to not be pregnant anymore. But first, I have to get through labour. After reading extensively about all the side effects

my vision board

A vision board is a visual representation of what you’re aiming for in life. Your goals, your dreams, who you want to be, what you want to have, what you’re working towards and what sort of life you want to live. I really enjoy how taking the time to make a vision board gives you an opportunity to think deeply about these things. You can reflect on if how you’re living your life is heading you in the direction you want to be going.

For a very simple vision board, you could

This is the perfect pick-me-up for breakfast, morning tea or afternoon tea! The banana and coffee gives you a great energy boost. You also receive a good dose of protein from the protein powder to keep you feeling full for longer. The cinnamon will help stabilise your blood sugar levels and the chia seeds and greek yoghurt give you a nice healthy serve of good fats.
