We are more likely to make poor quality food choices around 3pm! Snack time. The next most common time to make poor food choices is after dinner.
So instead of snacks potentially taking away from you having a healthy body and a healthy mindset, it's worth having snack prepared!

Starting in Daylesford, over 2,000 cyclists ride together through the beautiful countryside of Hepburn, Macedon Ranges and Mount Alexander Shires raising funds for Breast Cancer
The ride passes the towns of Kyneton, Malmsbury, Elphinston, Faraday, Taradale, Harcourt, Walmer, Maldon, Newstead, Franklinford, and Hepburn Springs before returning to Daylesford. This ride is so beautiful and such a great way to experience this piece of the world. Be warned the hills are tough but the environment is friendly and no competitive at all.
My client and dear friend Anu actually twisted my arm to join her on this ride, it was something fun to work towards and train for and we got a weekend getaway out of it!
My training coming into the event was little, I did a 25km ride once a week and a bigger ride building to 50km on Sundays combined with my regular strength and conditioning 3 x per week. Anu’s training was very much similar.
We raised $500 for the cause, cycled 63km and had a great...
This is one of my favourite dinner meals! It’s so quick and easy to bulk up your other halfs dinner. Example, I use a double serve microwave rice. I eat 100g and give he gets 150g or you can make extra for your lunch the next day or have 2 x smaller extra meals as food prep.
300g tofu (you can use chicken) diced into 1 cm squares
1 red onion diced (1/4 for the guacamole)
1 red capcicum diced 1 cm squares
handful cherry tomatoes sliced into quarters
1/2 mexican spice mix sachet (I look for a brand that has less than 10g of sugar per 100g on the back)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 red onion diced from above
1 tbsp lime juice
handful of coriander chopped
salt & pepper to taste
Brown Rice (I usually use microwaved if finishing work late)
Baby spinach or Salad Mix
Christmas is here! To me it’s a time to say thank you to all the people who make your day a little brighter. It really is one of the only traditions left in our culture so I like to keep the magic alive a little bit and get into the spirit of Christmas. I usually bake some “healthy” cookies for my staff members and clients to take into work. If it brings smiles, it’s worth taking the time. Obviously working within the health and fitness industry I encourage healthier alternatives to sugar, gluten and butter so I have recreated the recipe to support our goals yet still have fun (this is exclusive to the buttons but no one is judging here).
Much love, Emma xx
