I wanted to call this post ‘I Used a Recipe Book!’ because I can’t remember the last time I used one. I think I own them all and I look through them quite regularly but use one to actually cook with? Don’t talk crazy! Then I opened up Livia’s Kitchen and saw a very simple, and very easy recipe for carrot and oat energy balls and decided to make them.
Last week I won a competition thanks to the amazing Jen who tagged me in an Instagram competition. The prize? A three day juice cleanse from CPress. I have had CPress’ juices and always thought of them as being delicious but had never done a juice cleanse before (from any company). So I was really looking forward to trying this and seeing what would happen.
Dear Women’s Health,
Yesterday you sent an email to all your online subscribers with the subject line ‘How to Eat, Drink & Still Shrink’ because everyone knows that during Christmas the number one thing women think about is shrinking. Your December survival guide had the answers to questions I had never asked – How To De-Bloat Ahead Of Your Christmas Party, Your Guide To Eating Everything At Christmas…, The Low Cal Drink Everyone’s Ordering In LA, and How To Lose Weight By Eating More. Maybe lots of women pound your office doors begging you to tell them how to shrink over December, but I doubt it.
Every year I am surprised when December arrives. In fact I am always surprised when Winter arrives. Until the temperature drops and the frost sets in, it always feels like a far flung concept.; something that won’t actually happen. But it has happened! And the start of the new month means I have a new 7 Things List – the last of 2016.
London ETC is one of my favourite feature on this blog. It’s the chance for me to talk to some amazing women (and men!) about their love of London and fitness and food – you can read past editions here. This weeks’ edition is slightly later than normal but all for a very good reason. Earlier this morning Psycle hosted a blogger ride – have a look at my Instagram and my Instagram story here for all the fun – and today’s London ETC is with none other than instructor and CEO of Psycle herself, Rhian Stephensen!
