Sugar free scone recipe

Last weekend we had some friends over and I cooked all kinds of goodies, including millet bread, sweet buckwheat bread, savoury buckwheat bread, pancakes, scones and a bunch of things more (I love eating!). My husband loves to have pastries for breakfast on weekends and I am always finding alternatives to these kinds of food so…

Where are my vitamins?

The body is a very complex system that is constantly in need of nutrients to survive. This means that we must be on top of the game the whole time: What does my body need to have a good balance of vitamins and minerals? First, it all depends on the amount of physical activity each person…

Healthy breakfast for a healthy body

There are so many theories on how to lose weight that I have already lost count. Personally, I believe that each person must learn to listen to their body. What might work for you, may harm someone else. Diets are never “one size fits all”. It depends not only on the activity level, but also…

Please don’t die in my home!

So, this week I had the most horrific experience I have had in a very long time. I moved to London a few months ago, and finally last week we moved into our new home. It has been chaos, boxes laying around, dirty floors, still living from my suitcase (I have been using the same…

Recipes to lose the December fat!

It is already January 16 and I’m sure most of us are thinking on how to lose that weight we all gained during the December festivities. First, relax! Relaxing helps to lose weight, we don’t want our stress hormones (adrenaline and cortisol) to accumulate more fat, given we are trying to lose some of it!…

What’s for dinner?

I love to stuff vegetables such as aubergine, bell peppers or tomato. It is an easy option that looks and tastes amazing! You can stuff it with veggies, your favourite protein and a little bit of quinoa. As I continue in my transition stage, I am still looking for simple meals that will be warm,…

Pilates has changed me

I began taking Pilates classes almost two years ago, and it has completely changed me. Not only is my body slimmer and more feminine, it has also improved my posture and has helped me strengthen my back and abdomen. Furthermore, since my core is stronger it has been very beneficial during my HIIT workouts because I…

Burn fat fast?

I had been curious for a long time on what it would be to connect yourself to a bunch of cables and get electric muscle stimulation (EMS). This week I finally got around to taking a class. It was a very demanding 20-minute session, with all kinds of exercises involving the arms, core, legs and…

Be resourceful

It has been a bit more than a month since we moved to London. We are still in temporary accommodation; our bags are all over the place and my kitchen is a mess. I have been trying to keep to a minimum during our transition, I don’t want to have to move more stuff when…

Smoothies vs. Juicing

People are turning towards the smoothie and juicing trend as a healthier choice to quench their thirst, as part of a diet, a detox or a post workout meal. But I have realised that people don’t consider how much juice they should be taking, how to prepare their smoothies and the real reason for taking…

There’s a revolution going on

Healthy choices seem to elope people´s minds, and fast food companies have created Frankestein like solutions that appear to be good as an everyday choice. I entered Dallas airport after a very boring two-hour delay at customs. Finally, I reached costumer assistance in order to find out how I would take the final connection that…

Belly fat is a drag!

Its very important to keep belly fat monitored because it can become detrimental to your health. It has been associated with an increase of heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and diabetes. And let’s be honest, we don’t like how it looks! Belly fat has always been my weakest point, it has been the hardest…
