My Vitamins Carb Blocker

My Vitamins Total Carb BlockerA life without carbs is not a life worth living and they are essential to a well balanced diet and are a source of energy for exercisers, but they also have their flaws in that you can risk storing carbs as fat rather than using it as energy and that’s where these handy My Vitamin Carb Blockers come in to play!

I’ve started using the My Vitamins Total Carb Blockers as part of my regime.

For a while now I have been desperate to get my little mitts on some of these jewellery temporary tattoos! I’ve been desperately waiting for the sun to put its hat on so I could come out to play! And thankfully this weekend and Tesora London’s temporary tattoos did not disappoint!

I got my fake tan on so I could get ready to bare my limbs in public and what a perfect opportunity to try out these gorgeous gold, silver and turquoise coloured temporary tats!

The first thing people tend to think of when you mention transfer tattoos is when you were a kid and you were on the summer holidays and your parents would let you wear your mickey mouse transfer tattoos! Well the excitement is probably about the same if not more but these are definitely more glamorous and grown up!

Breo Axis Watch Review

breo axis watch reviewAt last!!! I have finally found a chunky watch that fits my tiny wrists!! I have lived my adult life never being able to find a chunky watch or boyfriend style watch that doesn’t make me look like a child playing dress up!! I love the Breo Axis Watch so much that I couldn’t not give it a raving review, but I think the fact that I have had so many compliments about these watches speaks for itself! My very basic review of the Breo Axis watch is that it goes with everything, and can easily take you from day to night and doesn’t look out of place. But read on for my full review of the watches.

My Protein Mocha Coconut Power Bliss Balls

My Protein Powder Mocha Coconut Power Bliss Balls

Wow! That’s a mouthful trying to say that title isn’t! Luckily these mocha coconut power bliss balls act as the perfect gob stopper 😛

My Protein sent me some fantastic samples and I have been thinking of different ways to use them other than the obvious protein shake mix up. So I’ve used the My Protein Impact Whey Protein Powder in Mocha flavour to make this bliss balls. The first thing I want to point out is that I don’t like coffee and I don’t really like coconut and I can’t get enough of these! I actually had to put them in the freezer so I had to make a conscious effort to take them and sit there and wait for them to thaw before eating them so it took away my ability to grab and snack! 😛

So here’s the My Protein Mocha Coconut Power Bliss Balls recipe! It gets a little bit oily and messy when rolling them into balls so be prepared for mess!

How To Make A Smoothie

I had a wee think before posting this one because smoothies are definitely not as healthy as people think they are! They are healthy if made properly and it’s really important to think of a smoothie as a meal because it will contain as many calories (if not more) than your average snack or lunch. When smoothies are unhealthy it’s because people see it as a beverage rather than a meal replacement. So if you are going to use this “Build A Smoothie Guide” that is my disclaimer! You’ve been warned; now enjoy!

Oatty Yoghurt Breakfast Pots

Oat breakfast pots meal prepI’ve recently started building nutrition plans for people and one of the most common things I hear from my clients is that they find breakfast is the hardest meal of the day and I definitely agree. The morning’s are always a rush no matter what your job and routine is. So the key to eating a healthy breakfast is prep prep and more prep! That is the only way to stop myself from having a breakfast that is bad for me. Quite often there are recipes that need an oven or a hob to cook on and quite a lot of people eat their breakfast when they get to work and not surprisingly your work doesn’t offer a fully operational kitchen complete with a cooker! I was watching a few colleagues who would pop to a nearby Soho Coffee and would buy a tiny yoghurt pot for a couple of pounds and whilst it looked amazing all I could think was I don’t know what’s in it and how expensive it was, and that led me to decide that I could make it for less money and I could make it 10 times more delicious!!! So I’ve bought myself 5 small kilner jars so I can make my own breakfast pots!

Ingredients:

  1. Oats
  2. Greek Yoghurt
  3. Honey
  4. Cinnamon
  5. Cacao nibs
  6. Linwoods flaxseed, pumpkin seed, goji berries

Method:

  • Pour a layer of oats in to the base of the kilner jar
  • Spoon on a layer of greek yoghurt
  • Sprinkle some ground cinnamon on top of the yoghurt
  • Drizzle a small amount of honey on top of the cinnamon
  • Repeat all of the above.
  • Add a pinch of cacao nibs
  • And finish with 1/4 tsp of flaxseed mix on top

Love roo xx
