Review: Protein Munchies

I wouldn’t be a personal trainer if I didn’t share something protein-related. And in my opinion, I wouldn’t be a very good personal trainer if I didn’t pick something that offered healthy whole food-based options that could be varied according to your tastes, and that offered good value for money.

Nutrition: Celeriac veggie burgers

Although many people haven’t heard of it, celeriac has been in my life for years.

The holidays – whichever ones you celebrate, if any – are coming, the days are getting shorter and colder, and our bodies are geared to overindulge and underexercise. It starts to look like we will never get a handle on our health and fitness routine, so we […]

Nutrition: Conscious Eating

I hardly need to preface this post with an explanation of the so-called obesity epidemic – just try to think of five people you know who are genuinely happy with their body; its size, its shape, its weight, how it moves, how it feels. Then try to think of as many people as you can […]
