Philips Viva Collection Juicer Review + Recipes..


I have to admit...

 I am not too good at eating my 5 portions of Fruit and Veggies. I normally eat at most two or three.

Not good!!


 I always encourage the Hubby and Kids to eat theirs.

To be fair they always do. I am the naughty one. I start off with the best of intentions Banana smoothie or shake for breakfast. Yet by lunchtime the apple and pear I was going to have with my lunch, gets replaced with biscuits. I sometimes even get the fruit and veg ready. Carrot sticks, Apples cored and peeled. in the end though I cannot be bothered to chew them and up dipping a biscuit in a cup of tea.

Crispy Crunch Fruity Snacks...



I have totally wore myself out with all the exercise I did last week!

Not much water, fruit or veg as I was constantly thinking about grabbing a high energy snack and then onto the next run/ spin class/ circuit class/ bike ride lead me to being so weak and knocked off my feet this week I have been forced to rest.

Rome wasn't built in a day!

I have learned the hard way! I know now that getting fit is about getting the balance right too. Workout, refuel, drink plenty of water, eat fruit and veg for vitimins and get lots of rest.

One day I will get it right!!

Honeyed Turkey and Avocado Salad with a Yoghurt Mint Dressing ...


A healthy, tasty salad, cram-packed with superfoods!

Watercress is both full of vitamin C and abundant in minerals including folate, iron, zinc, magnesium, calcium and potassium.

It has been dubbed the food to keep you looking young!

Avocados are brimming with essential nutrients, including potassium, B-vitamins and folic acid. They also act as a so-called nutrient booster; so when eaten with other foods, avocados enable the body to better absorb cancer-fighting nutrients!

Finally honey acts as an antioxidant, a substance that can prevent the effects of free radicals!

What’s not to like about this salad?
