I love food!
I love eating it, I love cooking it, and I spend the majority of my day pondering what food I am going to eat next!
Food plays such a huge role in your fitness goals, it is the fuel that charges your workouts.
To adjust body fat, we have to either increase or decrease our intake.
There is this idea that to achieve the perfect body, you must sacrifice and omit certain foods from your diet. For me, it is about adding more flavour, being creative with your ingredients, and enjoying food, while still achieving the physique I want.
I am fed up of foods being labeled good or bad, it is such a negative way to look at what you are eating. I’m not here to tell you what you should or should not eat, because it is up to each person as an individual to make good choices. Food is made up of calories, and calories are made up of macronutrients (macros) Carbohydrates, Fats and Protein. In order to gain or lose weight, you have to look at your calorific intake as well as your expenditure.
Tracking your food intake is equally as important as burning the calories in the gym. I started creating fun tasty recipes because I did not want to give up one of my loves in order to reach my goals.
I don’t live a virtuous perfect life 100% of the time. I have a healthy balance of tasty nutritious foods with a sprinkle of treats. Nothing is off-limits when you keep track of your intake and are consistent.
I want you to see my recipes as a healthy option when you feel like indulging.
I recently visited Gymshark HQ and brought some of my favourite Protein treats; Protein Carrot Cake Muffins. They are a simple, yet delicious, healthy protein treat.*
They were a hit with everyone in the office and I had to promise to make more the next time I came to visit. They have incredible macros and I eat them daily, even when preparing to step on a bodybuilding stage!
