This is a delicious and nutritious snack I really look forward to. I love how low calorie this is yet so satisfying and filling. When I first came up with this winning combo, I ate it every single day at work for three weeks straight! I also ate it a lot in the weeks leading up to my bikini competition as it kept me full despite being in a calorie deficit.
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.
This a delicious snack, and it’s perfect now that the weather is warming up. You can’t go wrong with the flavours in this smoothie bowl!

1 scoop/30g vanilla protein powder

A delicious and nutrient-packed red smoothie recipe to alternate with your favourite green smoothie recipe! There is so much goodness jammed into this smoothie. The beetroot provides your body with a stack of antioxidants and vitamins. Studies have found that beetroot can reduce blood pressure and inflammation. Ginger has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties. It aids digestion, relieves nausea, has anti-inflammatory effects and can ease cold and flu symptoms such as headaches and sore throats. Lemon is wonderful for your liver, the detox organ of the body.

I absolutely love eating breakfast out at different cafes. I think breakfast foods are the tastiest! Having them cooked for you and served with a lovely flat white is such an indulgent way to start the weekend. It’s hard to not have a bad day after a start like that; however, I often think, ‘I could easily recreate something like this at home for a quarter of the price’. If you’re like me and have found yourself thinking the same thing, here’s a recipe I created
My hubby and I love our tradition of bacon and eggs every weekend. It’s such a satisfying filling breakfast. We usually have our bacon and eggs with one of these sides, plus sometimes a green smoothie. These sides are way more nutrient-packed than a slice of bread and a lot tastier too!
Side 1) Kale torn into small pieces, sliced mushrooms and cherry tomatoes sautéed for 5 minutes over medium heat in butter. Top with himalayan salt.
Every healthy foodie has got their signature way of doing homemade granola, so I thought it was about time I shared mine! I love to eat granola with Greek yoghurt and either a grated apple, sliced banana or berries. I tend to find it’s not as filling as having eggs for breakfast but it’s a nice change when you feel like something different, and fantastic to bring when going on holidays where you won’t have the facilities to make a cooked breakfast.
This smoothie was made with love for my lovely friend, Christina. She is a hard-working Mum with three active children under five. Due to her busy lifestyle and health issues, she’s been struggling to gain weight for some time now. This smoothie is relatively high in calories, so would be suitable for you if
