How does your muesli measure up..?

How does your muesli measure up..?

This is a photo of my morning muesli on the days I don’t feel like my usual green goddess power smoothie.  But this ain’t your conventional muesli or breakfast cereal, because there are two major differences that can make several kilo’s difference to your hips!  I’m talking about the fact that most conventional breakfast cereals contain up to 30% sugar or up to 40 grams of sugar per 100 grams – that’s a whopping 2 tablespoons of the white stuff!!  To give you a comparison, my home made muesli pictured above, contains just 7 grams of sugar per 100 grams – not that you … Continue reading

Tips to keep the waist line down travelling

Let me ask you something…. what do you eat when travelling or stuck waiting in an airport terminal? Do you grab a bagel, a burger, a boost juice thick shake, a BLT sandwich? Or perhaps you see the airport transit lounge as a place to indulge in the dirty bird (aka KFC) or the golden arches?…..Or maybe it’s the bucket of hot chips that suck you in every time? Have you ever noticed that when travelling you tend to go for indulgences that you ordinarily wouldn’t touch? I know for me travel and airport terminals can trigger a kind of … Continue reading
