Aloe Drinking Gel

Aloe Drinking Gel

Aloe Drinking Gel

So I’ve started drinking the forever living aloe drinking gel and oh my days I won’t ever go back to not drinking this!

I’ll be honest the taste was a shock, the aloe drinking gel is definitely an acquired taste but you quickly get over that and the benefits are so worth it and far outweigh the unusual taste!

So I started drinking the aloe drinking gel more out of curiosity rather than thinking I needed it for something in particular. My mum is currently drinking the forever freedom aloe drinking gel which has glucosomine in it and is designed for people with mobility concerns and athletes. But I’ll come back to that in a minute!

Anyway like I said I started the aloe drinking gel out of curiosity but what I actually discovered was that I wasn’t a good sleeper. After a couple of weeks of taking a shot of the gel I noticed that I was falling asleep quickly, wasn’t waking during the night and was waking in the morning feeling completely refreshed. I can’t remember the last time that happened and now its happening every day!!! I can only put this down to the aloe drinking gel!

My mum is also drinking the forever freedom aloe drinking gel which she is hoping will help with her arthritic knees (still early days yet but watch this space!) But one thing she did say to me was that her hair has started to shine. She’s always had quite dry hair from lots of colouring over the years but she said she looked in the mirror and had to do a double take because her hair had such a shine to it that she hasn’t seen in years! Again she’s not changed anything so can only attribute it to the aloe drinking gel!

How about you? Are you curious enough to try it?? Click here to try and buy!

Ketone Review

Earlier this year I did a trial of some raspberry ketone and green coffee bean supplements so I could do a ketone review. Check the ketone review post to read about all of the benefits before scrolling through to see the results!!

I used the ketone supplements for 1 month and took them 3 times daily as instructed and I am pleased to report that my ketone review is a positive one! I took some photos as well as some measurements as 1 month is enough time to see a change but it will never be a dramatic change! So here are my photos (top before, below is after) and measurements:

Ketone Review

Ketone Review & Results

25th April 2016

  1. 8st 7lbs
  2. Chest: 30 inches
  3. Waist: 24.5 inches
  4. Hips: 36 inches
  5. Thigh: 21 inches

1st May 2016

  1. 8st 4lbs
  2. Chest: 30 inches
  3. Waist: 24 inches
  4. Hips: 35 inches
  5. Thigh: 20.5 inches

So the results of this ketone review show a total of 2 inches lost over the body within 1 month, and a 3lb weight loss! I was definitely pleased with these results!!!

Whilst I was taking the tablets it was an odd one; rather than feeling like I suddenly had more energy or feeling fuller for longer, I didn’t notice a sudden change, but when I stopped taking the ketone tablets I suddenly noticed I wasn’t taking them because the effect had worn off. So it was more of a natural and gradual improvement over the month rather than instantaneous. So anyone wanting to try these ketone supplements should definitely bear that in mind!! So would I recommend ketone supplements? Sure! But don’t expect a miracle overnight! Ketone tablets are no different to anything else natural and healthy and that means that it takes time to see huge results but when you do they will be lasting results! But why don’t you be the judge of that 🙂

Nut Milk

Nut Milk

People mocked my nut milk bag purchase despite this being something I’d wanted to buy for AGES but had never quite gotten around to it. I have to say buying this was literally one of the single most exciting days of my life, only trumped by the fact that I actually made my own nut milk quickly a few days later!!

Parcel Chicken

Parcel chicken

Chicken is one of my most favourite things to cook because there are sooooo many variations and this parcel chicken recipe certainly proves it!! In this recipe I used red rice but you could easily use cauliflower rice or quinoa for an equally delicious dish!

Raspberry Ketone and Green Coffee Bean Supplement Review

raspberry ketones and green coffee bean extract

raspberry ketones and green coffee bean extract

It’s that time of year where everyone starts thinking about their upcoming summer holidays. The clocks have gone forward for the spring so the nights are staying lighter for longer and there’s that feeling in the air of a fresh start and making changes and really starting to refocus and motivate yourself to pick up those slightly forgotten news years resolutions!

I’m no different! It’s really difficult to keep on track when all you want to do is hunker down on the sofa with a blanket and watching Netflix boxsets back to back instead of hitting the gym hard! I’ve been feeling really sluggish after taking some time off from exercising due to being unwell and now it’s time to kickstart and as part of this I will be using some Raspberry Ketone and Green Coffee Bean supplements to help keep my energy levels up and to help store less fat! I will be trialling these over the next month and will be updating and reviewing on my progress.

So firstly let’s talk about the benefits of raspberry ketones and green coffee beans! These supplements are designed to balance blood sugar levels and boost general health and wellbeing. The raspberry ketone extract is claimed to help cause the fat within cells to break down more effectively and therefore helps the body to burn fat quicker. Raspberry ketones also help to increase levels of adiponectin, a hormone which helps regulate metabolism.

The second bit; green coffee bean extract also works alongside the raspberry ketones by providing an active ingredient called chlorogenic acid. This is believed to boost metabolism by up to 11%! It also reduces the absorption of carbs and lowers blood sugar levels and spikes in insulin.

So it’s fair to say that combined the benefits of both the raspberry ketones and the green coffee bean extract should assist a well balanced diet and regular exercise to achieve weight loss goals.

It’s really important to remember that there is no such thing as magic beans and these are a supplement to assist. A healthy and active lifestyle combined with a clean diet is key and these should give you the extra help along the way, and will help your body to stay fuelled with the energy need for all of the exercise!

I will post before and after pictures in 4 weeks time and then you can be the judge of whether or not these raspberry ketones and green coffee bean extract supplements are worth while.

If you’ve tried them before, why not share your experience of them!

Hummus

Hummus

Homemade Hummus Recipe

Hummus is amazing! It’s the one thing I cannot avoid when there are snacks out at a party! And the great thing is that if you make your hummus at home it’s super duper healthy 🙂

Hummus seemed like a really daunting thing for me to make but it’s actually surprisingly easy. It takes a few minutes to make and a few minutes to eat!

The only ingredients you’ll need to make this is:

  • 1 tin of chickpeas (drained)
  • 1 red pepper chopped roughly
  • 1 clove of chopped garlic
  • 2 tbsp tahini paste or almond butter.

To make your hummus simply pop all of the ingredient into a blender and blitz until it’s smooth. Spoon into a jar and refrigerate until you want to devour it! I like having mine with slightly heated pitta bread, sticks of pepper or carrot sticks 🙂

Hope you enjoy!! Why not follow my instagram account for more delicious recipe inspiration! And share your own by tagging me @RooDeRennes.

Motivation

Motivation. That’s a tough one isn’t it? You start the new year with good intentions and it’s easy because it’s new and it’s exciting and everyone else is doing it, but what happens to your motivation when February begins and it becomes a bit more mundane and the reality of everything kicks in and you start to feel the pressures of everyday life creeping back in and the first thing you want to quit is your healthy eating and exercising because you can’t quit work or being a parent, spouse or any of the other daily commitments you have. Well on Friday 29th January I had an interview with Jack Miles at BBC Radio Gloucestershire to talk about motivation. How to keep it, and what is the not so secret way to keep motivated!

Take a listen and then I will explain further! It was my first ever radio interview and with any interview you always come out kicking yourself wishing you said this, that and the other! Click on the link below and head to 1:14:30 to listen.

Healthy Snacks

Healthy Snacks - Rosemary Roasted Pecans

Healthy Snacks – Rosemary Roasted Pecans

So the January resolutions of getting fit and healthy are in full swing but there is one thing getting in your way; healthy snacks! So many people fall at this hurdle, they’re at work and suddenly the munchies take hold of you and you’re suddenly starving and it’s hours until lunch time! Noooooooo! Then you check your purse and trundle off to the vending machine and buy the “healthy” flapjack! Be prepared people! Making your own healthy snacks so you can have a stash in your bag or in your desk drawer is a great way to make sure you don’t fall off of the wagon! My latest healthy snack was inspired by Madeleine Shaw and is so quick and easy to make that you’ll be kicking yourself for not having done it sooner!

Rosemary roasted pecans is the best of all the healthy snacks! Firstly in my opinion pecans always taste better when they’re roasted and secondly nuts have all of the yummy good fats that you need in you want and not all of the bad sugary fats that you want to avoid.

So here’s what you do. Preheat your oven to 160C. Take your pecans and scatter them on a baking tray. Drizzle some melted coconut oil over them or some rapeseed oil. Then take some fresh rosemary and fling across the nuts! Shake the tray so everything gets all mixed together. Then bake in the oven for 25 – 30 minutes. Once the nuts have cooled a little, take some kitchen paper and put it on the work surface, then sprinkle the nuts on top then get some more kitchen paper and put it on top and then dab the nuts just to get off any excess oil, pop the nuts in a little baggy or tupperware container, and now you have the ultimate, most delicious of all healthy snacks at your fingertips whilst you are on the go!
