I mean really know the real authentic you? We think we know ourselves, but this self is usually based on our achievements, failures, jobs, relationships, labels, what others expect of us, what we have or don’t have, what we do rather than what we are.

Acai and berry smoothie

Acai is my current favourite superfood. It is lovely in smoothies, shakes and different smoothie or chia seed bowls. It is rich in many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants such as vitamins A, C and B vitamins, magnesium, iron, potassium, as well as fibre and some omega oils.

On writing my book and learning to accept myself


Note: this post was written in January 2015. Although my book is a weight loss book it is first and foremost about being healthy: eating healthy, developing a healthy relationship with food and a healthy attitude towards weight loss and, most importantly focussing on having a healthy relationship with yourself – learning to respect yourself and […]
