Do you wish you had more time to prepare healthy meals?
If one of your New Years' resolutions was something along the lines of eat better/lose weight/get healthy then the best place to make realistic, easy, lasting changes is in the kitchen.
The first reason people list as their biggest roadblock to better health is almost always "not enough time" - well friends, I hear you. So I've asked the lovely Lorna from Eat Myyy Thoughts to put together the answer to your problem and my-oh-my has she delivered. The creator of other amaaaazing recipes like Loaded Mexican-Style Sweet Potato Skins (seriously droolworthy..) and Heirloom Tomato Tart With Buckwheat Crust (almost too pretty to eat...almost) has given us Five Make-Ahead Smoothie Mixes For Busy People. Perfect no-fuss recipes for busy summer mornings!
Coconut water; my new all-round cooking companion.
A little while ago I was asked to develop some recipes for the wonderful people at Natural Raw C coconut water. OK, a long while ago. I’ve been meaning to do a recipe round up for about 12 months but things have been crazy in the Fit Kitchen lately (more details coming soon) and I just never got around to it. Better late than never! This is not a paid post, Natural Raw C have just been really supportive of this blog since I started and I love working with them. I know a lot of people are divided on coconut water, and while I don’t see it as the be all and end all miracle drink that some do, I am a genuine fan. I don’t drink soft drinks or cordial, or really anything other than water and tea usually, so coconut water is a nice alternative for me. And while it may not be a miracle elixir it does have nutritional value, so that’s a thumbs up from me. Plus I just freaking love coconut!
When life gives you lemons…
Usually I’d say ‘prepare the tequila shots!’ or ‘use them to stuff your bra!’, but given that I’m well and truly up the duff (17 weeks now and counting!) and these options are currently either a) socially “frowned upon” or b) completely unnecessary, I’ve come up with a new plan. Old-fashioned lemon iced tea it is! Given a modern (read: hipster) twist with coconut water.
