It is the season to be outdoors and running in some beautiful fresh air and sunshine! With plenty of trail run events and triathlons coming up over the next few months it is a great time to be doing some running training. Whether you are a seasoned runner, a professional athlete or a complete newbie to running, with the nice weather (fingers crossed) coming our way it is a great time to get outside on to the trails for a run.
Are you or a loved one a distance runner, triathlete, adventure racer, ultra hiker, rower, swimmer or just into exercising hard and a LOT?
If so I highly recommended you get your hands onto the recipe book “Run Fast. Eat Slow.” by American Olympic marathon runner, Shalane Flanagan, and chef and nutrition coach Elyse Kopecky.
Warm lemon water – why this is a great way to start your day everyday!
Lemons regularly get overlooked when it comes to fruit and vegetables, but this brightly-coloured bitter and sour fruit is a little powerhouse: packed full of hydrating and alkalising electrolytes, vitamins, minerals and trace minerals.
Having a glass of warm water with lemon when you get up every morning is great for re-hydrating your body’s tissues, giving you an energy boost, stimulating your body to clear out toxins, and getting all the systems in your body going. Not to mention waking and warming you up in the morning.
Below is some info explaining how consuming warm lemon water daily can help improve your overall health and well being.
One of the most common thing I see in clinic is that clients eat really well at all their main meals, but then slip up when it comes to snacking – they undo a lot of their hard work by snacking on highly processed junk foods.
I get it, snacking on veggie sticks and dip and fresh fruit can get a bit boring, and lets face it, these foods don’t feel like a treat. It’s only human to want a treat every now and then!
Making and baking healthy snacks can be very time consuming, and lots of people start off with great intentions of making lots of healthy snacks to always have on hand, but sometimes life just gets in the way and we run out of time.
So what is the answer to delicious yet quick and simple healthy snacks options??
