Snack Attack – The Art to Mindful Munching… Part 1

A few days ago, I got home from work, later than expected and hungrier than usual, to an almost empty fridge. I opened her up, snacked on anything and everything I could find – a few pieces of cheese, some left overs, a slice of bread, some grapes; basically anything I could get my hands…

Creamy Cauliflower Mash

If you’ve already seen one of my very first blog posts (not so long ago); which you can check out here 👀https://holisticnutritionninja.blog/2018/10/17/cheesy-cauliflower-bites/  you already know that cauliflower is definitely NOT one of my favorite foods. I’ve never really enjoyed it unless it was smothered in white sauce and coated in cheese – sounds nice right? Which…

Intermittent Fasting – What I eat in a day!

I tend to get this question quite a bit, both online and in person especially by people who know that I’m a holistic nutritionist and who notice that I’ve lost a bit of weight recently. Honestly, I never know what to tell them. Not because I don’t want to share what I eat but because…

Why and how I use intermittent fasting

It’s currently 5.45am and I have the time to sit down and write this because I’m going to be skipping breakfast today – one of the perks is not having to make any or have to clean up anything. Of course, that’s not why I do it, but having some more time to do something…

Stress and Anxiety – is it the new norm?

I know this may seem a bit off topic, but wellness is not just eating everything organic and drinking green juice. You can drink all the green juice in the world but if you’re stressed and anxious and feeling overwhelmed, it won’t do your body as much good as it should. It is in fact…

No Bake Oat Energy Balls

Soothing Turmeric Tea

While I’m looking forward to the cooler months ahead, this time of year can be miserable to those of us subject to seasonal allergies or who catch a cold. This tea is something I’m making daily lately. It only takes a few minutes and it’s so soothing, it tastes really good and it’s very healing….

Creamy Butternut Squash Soup; ingredient prep uses – meal THREE

I recently posted a blog post about ingredient prep; as opposed to full meal prep, I prefer pre-cooking ingredients that are very time consuming and having them ready to use in simple recipes throughout the week. Blog Post here: Meal Prep like a Pro I love butternut squash and it’s so versatile. Today I decided to…

Shrimp and Pesto sauce Zoodles – ingredient prep uses; MEAL TWO

As you may have seen in my latest post, I’ve slowly but surely become a big fan of so called ‘ingredient prep’ as opposed to meal prep; the difference between the two, as the name suggests, is preparing ingredients as opposed to preparing full meals to have on hand throughout a busy week. Here’s my blog…
