I still very vividly remember when I first realised that I had anxiety. Partly because of the way I realised, but mostly because when I did realise/had it pointed out to me by my gorgeous Mum, it was one of those, “Umm… Duh Miranda!”-moments, and I kind of felt really silly because of course I had anxiety!

But it can do SO much more than that, because of one simple mechanism, and I am going to make it really easy for you to understand. Hopefully, the more you understand about how exercise can help you, the more likely you will be to include it into your life. Continue reading
Often when healthy snacks are suggested, the go-to is a handful of almonds, or some veggie sticks – how friggin boring right?

Who doesn’t love a chocolaty treat that’s easy to put together?
For a sweet treat without the sugar, but with a nice whack of protein, fibre and good fats, like omega3, you can’t go past my chia pudding.
It can be adapted to suit any flavour palate, just like my Coyo Chia Pudding. Try it with cacao powder or even fresh passionfruit instead of the cacao nibs, if you want, and top with any fruit you like.
