ZERO CARB - ZERO SUGAR RECIPES

I need to follow a carb free & sugar free lifestyle in order to keep my weight down as I am in thick of menopause & therefore if I even look at carbs or sugar I gain weight!!! I happen to LOVE food & especially bread and pasta so it wasn't easy to give up all my favourite staples - I did discover the dukan diet & I follow this diet plan & today I have lost approx 8kgs! It's easy to follow as it enables you to eat plenty as long as you are organised & food prep is a must in order to stay on track.

Importance of Good Posture

Hi everyone. I have been studying hard for the last 6 weeks and this has meant I was sitting in the same position for too long. I also do look at my iPhone a lot as I enjoy watching YouTube tutorials, however this has compromised my posture greatly. The other morning I woke up in a great deal of pain, my neck felt stiff and very sore. My mum took me to our chiropractor Dr Michael Sideris for treatment. 

Quick Simple Snack Ideas

A well balanced snack helps keep your blood sugars levels high throughout the day. I find that I tend to have my snacks three hours after each meal. Important to spread out your snacks in between your meals and have it well balanced throughout the day.

My go to snacks are : apple, plum, carrots, little handful of walnuts which are high in protein, Greek yogurt with drizzle of honey and dried toast like cracker with spread of goat cheese and little drizzle of parsley. Enjoy!

BREAKFAST IN TORONTO

Hello everyone, I wanted to talk about breakfast and share with you a healthy yummy breakfast. 

First let’s talk about breakfast. Breakfast is indeed a very important meal. A lot of us usually skip breakfast because we have no time but we shouldn’t. A good breakfast fuels you up and gets you ready for the day. In general, people who eat breakfast have more energy, to do better and eat healthier throughout the day. Without breakfast, people can get irritable, restless, and tired.

My go to breakfast is

Broccoli & Feta Omelet with Toast

Simple Low-Calorie Meal/Snack

Hey everyone ... This is my quick, low calorie, yummy lunchtime meal that I love!

I use Cruskits with corn because I find them tastier but you can use any of the Cruskit range. On the crackers I spread Cottage Cheese, I place some leg ham and I slice tomato on top, don't forget salt and pepper to taste. There are many other toppings you can use like Vegemite and cheese or avocado spread and prawn, the possibilities are endless just use your imagination. 

Good luck and enjoy!
