Beat the Winter Blues
The link between physical health and what you eat is well understood, but did you know that what you eat has a huge impact on your mood and how you feel?
I wonder how we forgot about this connection, because it was common knowledge in times gone by. Way back when (think medieval times), people would eat quince, dates and elder flowers, if they were feeling a little blue, and use lettuce and chicory as nature’s tranquilisers.
Modern science has extensively studied the impact of food on mood, and we now understand why food has such a positive (or negative) effect and also which foods we should be eating more (or less) of to support mental health.
Managing anxiety, stress, depression and other mood disorders is complex, and there’s no one-size- ts all solution. But we know that the right diet and lifestyle plan combined with motivational coaching to help you every step of the way can be an enormous help.
But, if you have tried to make changes on your own in the past, you’ll understand that having the knowledge is only a very small piece of the puzzle. My signature Mood & Energy Programme has been created to help raise your mood, boost your energy and help you get motivated and back to living life to the full, reduce anxiety, and improve your overall wellbeing. To find out more about this programme, drop me an email or book in for a free call.

RECIPE OF THE MONTH: Quinoa Pizza
Did you know that 8th January is National Pizza Day?
Time for a healthy Pizza recipe!
170g (dry weight) uncooked quinoa
3tsp olive oil, divided (plus extra for brushing, if using)
2 large eggs
1 ½ tsp garlic salt
½ tsp dried oregano
½ tsp dried basil
½ tsp baking powder
35g grated parmesan or mozzarella cheese
Place the uncooked quinoa in a sieve and rinse under water for about a minute until the water runs clear. Shake off as much excess liquid as possible.
Add the rinsed quinoa and 2 tsp olive oil to a medium pan and cook on a medium heat for 6-7 mins to allow the excess moisture to evaporate and the quinoa to start to gently toast and develop a richer flavour.
Add the measured water to the toasted quinoa. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cover then cook the quinoa for about 15 min, stirring occasionally. Remove the lid and turn the heat to low. Cook for a further 5 more mins, stirring occasionally to evaporate the excess moisture. Transfer the cooked quinoa to a large bowl and let it cool for at least 10 mins.
Pre-heat the oven to 220C.
Line a baking sheet with greaseproof/ baking paper and spray with cooking spray or lightly brush with olive oil to prevent it sticking.
In a small bowl, add the eggs, 1 tsp olive oil, garlic salt, oregano, basil and baking powder. Whisk until well combined.
Add the cheese to the quinoa. Stir to combine then tip in the egg mixture. Stir until well combined.
Spread the quinoa dough into a thin, even layer (about 6-7mm) on the paper.
Bake for 18-20 mins until the edges begin to brown.
Remove from the oven and top with your favourite pizza toppings. Pop back into the oven for 5-10 mins until the cheese (if using) begins to melt.
Stand for 5 mins before slicing.
