healthy eating = healthy tummy. simple.

7 Apr

so anyone who knows me know that i am – usually- quite conscious of what i put into my tummy.

at the moment i’ve been bulking up on these bad boys below, and have to say, i’m really seeing (and feeling) the benefits:

almonds with the skin still on

green tea

green veggies-

avocado/guacamole

water

fish

eggs

nutty, superfood salads from m&s

humous on rice cakes

crunchy oriental stirfries

bounce balls- available at all good health shops

coconut butter- used as cooking oil-

cashew nuts and pine nuts – on top of my stirfry

flaxseed, chopped hazelnuts, linseed and bran with my porridge

healthy living words

i’ve also tried to stick to eating carbs- in so far as possible- to post-workout, thanks to the advice of the lovely guys at the edge gym in clontarf. i’ve started to take some of their supplements too to help make sure i get everything i need to keep my body healthy, strong and full of energy. you can buy them here.

give the above a try and i guarantee you’ll see a huge improvement in your overall energy- you’ll feel less sluggish, more motivated and less hungry. give it a go at least. feel good.
