Join the juice a day challenge with 3 green recipes to get you started

I’ve been having a green juice every day throughout January, as you’d know if you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. My friend Amanda from Finding Eco (pictured with me, below, enjoying a Kreation Juice in LA) launched the challenge (search #janjuiceaday) and, well, I’m always up for a challenge! But ‘what is the hype about green juice?’, I hear you ask. ‘Why is a green smoothie a day good for your health?’ I’ll explain, but first here are a few of my creations so far… Read more

Paleo mango ice-cream – a healthy, dairy-free dessert

Summer isn’t summer without ice-cream. I could eat ice-cream just about every day (whether it’s summer or winter, for that matter). Yep, it’s my vice (along with chocolate and coffee!). If, like me, you love ice-cream, you can’t go past a Mango Weiss Bar during summertime. Or can you? This mango ice-cream recipe is healthy, paleo friendly and dairy free! Read more

Asian-inspired barbecued salmon with honey, chilli and tamari

Is there anything more suitable and satisfying than fish and salad for a summer evening’s meal?

Light and spicy, meaty and zesty Thai chicken broth

This Thai Chicken Broth is a quick, easy and tasty soup that makes excellent use of homemade chicken stock.

Dijon salad dressing to make simple salads delicious standouts

Salads can be boring, there’s no doubt about it. But I have a sneaking suspicion that, for most of us, it’s the monotony of the same-old-same-old that’s boring, rather than the salad itself. To test out my theory, I’m sharing with you my tried, tested and true Dijon salad dressing. It’s quick, simple, sugar-free, totally tangy and tasty, and will make any salad a delicious standout!

Food tips for air travel – what to eat on the plane

I’m a bit of an oddball when I travel, and that’s OK with me. I’m the one who carries five notepads in her handbag, preferring to write than watch the in-flight entertainment; who Instagrams every meal, even a handful of activated nuts; and who takes her own food on board the aircraft, asking only for cutlery and a cup of hot water for her organic green tea bag. Yes, I am one of those. But it was only recently when I became unapologetic about it. Read more

Travel teaches us that life is a journey

For someone who’s been to 33 countries, takes every opportunity to set off on an adventure, and spent two years in a long distance relationship (man, we spent some money on fuel!), I used to hate travelling. The distances, the time, the nothingness that happens during the ride… Now, amid the fast pace of life, these are things I relish in. It’s a reminder that life, too, is a journey. Read more

Yoga at work – benefits of a happy, healthy workforce

Yoga is often dismissed as nothing more than prolonged stretching, deep breathing, and perhaps a little “hoo-do-voodoo”. I know I used to think so. Once upon a time I would have berated myself for opting for something as serene as yoga over a run, a pole session, or a HIIT workout. But yo’ better believe that yoga has a place in everyone’s lives, and more so now than ever before. Read more
