Yup // sugar + glowing skin are not soul mates. I wrote a blog post about it on gloriouswellness.com. The link's up top in my bio 👆
.
Sugar creates inflammation in the body (and skin) and contributes to a process called glycation which makes skin cells stiffen. Want glowing skin? One thing you can do is scale right back on the sweet stuff.

Good fats // Olive oil, avocados, nuts, seeds and oily fish like mackerel and sardines make me think of all things Mediterranean - a way of eating that's full of mono-unsaturated fats and omega-3s to help keep our hearts healthy. I also notice my skin, hair and nails get a boost when I include these fats in small amounts each day. Low fat just ain't the thing anymore. We need fats to help us absorb vitamins A, D and E.

Nope they don't // Unless you eat bucketloads of them. I got asked this question recently when I gave a talk on how to eat for amazing energy. They're full of good monounsaturated fats, fibre, plus vitamins C, E and K. They can help keep skin healthy. I eat a couple of them a week. Usually on toast of course 🥑✌

Greeeeeen // Been asked a lot recently 'should I detox?'. I'm not a big detox fan 'cos our body detoxes pretty well by itself. However giving it a helping hand by eating a varied diet with lots of colour and crunch is always a good idea. Starting by increasing your greens is an easy way to get going. Add something green at lunch and again at dinner and you'll be taking steps in the right direction.

Peas please // Get something green in at lunch and dinner to help get your #gloriouswellness on. I want to fly the flag for the humble frozen pea. They're oft overlooked for their trendier kale counterpart.

Cheerleading for peas....
.
They're a good source of:
Vitamins K, C, B1
Manganese, copper and folate
Fibre

They're cheap and delicious.
Go peas.

All hail veg // One thing I talk about in this month's YouTube vid and in my newsletter All Things Glorious is how I absolutely do not do the whole January detox thing. But I do love the notion of a reboot.

One way to get things feeling more glorious is to eat more veg. 5-7 veg a day is the bomb but if that feels too tricky then start by getting something green in at lunch and then at dinner. Then add another colour or two.

My newsletter goes out later today so there's still time to sign up to get All Things Glorious in your inbox if you want more reboot recommendations. Link in bio ☝️ .

Mango + Pro-Bio // I posted earlier about eating 1 or 2 pieces of fresh fruit a day. I don't usually eat mango in the UK as it's just not worth the ££ and the airmiles 'cos it's usually disappointingly unripe. Here in Oz they're in season in the peak of summer and super cheap.
.
One of my breakfast faves is ripe mango + coconut yogurt. I've just discovered this @borncultured one. I love it 'cos it's unsweetened and has a lovely sharp tang - most coconut yogurts taste too sweet to me. I'm a fan of eating gut-friendly probiotics each day and coconut yogurt is a good way to start.
.
If your guts are ok with dairy, then a full-fat, unsweetened live yogurt works well too.

100 Ways No. 8 // I'm a fruit fan. One or two pieces a day is a very good thing. Packed full of vitamins and fibre, fresh fruit is damn fine.

However I'm not such a fan of fruit juice. Once the fibre's been removed (and for most of us, we need MORE fibre in our diet) fruit juice can lead to a blood-sugar spike. I recommend to all my clients that they eat the whole fruit.
.
I often get asked 'are smoothies ok?'....I say yes as they still contain fibre even though it's been whizzed up. That said, I make my smoothies with greens like cucumber, spinach, parsley, avocado and just a small amount of fruit for sweetness e.g. half a pear, apple or banana.

If you have any fave green smoothie combos, I'd love to hear 💚

Welcome to Oz // Best welcome gift ever, thanks sis!! I AM partial to a salty potato snack....I once interviewed for a job at Kettle Chips which would've been disastrous if I'd got the job, I wouldn't have got much work done due to extreme crisp munching.

Crisps are part of my 80/20:
☆ 80% wholesome, healthy and wellness-boosting goodness.
☆ 20% flex and freedom to enjoy the things you loooooove be that crisps, cake or coffee.

Having just opened this pack for a cheeky evening aperitif, they've been commandeered by my 19 year old nephew who is now hoovering them up. Better wrestle them off him.

Avoid the un-pronounceables // you know the list of ingredients printed on the food label? If it has gobbledy-gook sounding things listed on it, chances are that eating it isn't going to be doing you any favours.
.
Take a look at a few labels and make sure you can pronounce everything listed.

One of my bug bears is gluten-free foods in the supermarket. They're often packed with weird stuff. I used to buy gluten-free bread there until I realised it was full of less-than-glorious ingredients.

I now get my GF bread from a local bakery who use simple natural ingredients. They're called @artisanbreadorganic. Not an #ad, just a shout out as I love what they do. .

Beige // does us absolutely no favours. Beige food tends to be devoid of much nutritional value - think biscuits, pastry, white pasta, white bread.
.
I used to think I was the epitome of chic wearing 'camel' aka beige until I realised it made me look washed out. Same thing happens when we eat beige. Instead go for colour, crunch, variety and vibrancy in your food 🌱🥑🍎🍆and you'll glow from the inside out. If you're one of those lucky golden skinned people who suit camel, rock it ✌

6 is the number // I'm often banging on about the fact that sugar isn't the benign sweet little treat we're often led to believe. Too much sugar impacts our energy levels, skin (yes, sugar impacts our skin) as well as our waistline.
When I give talks on this topic, one of the things I ask people to do is check food + drink labels.

On the nutritional label, there's a line that says 'carbohydrates, of which sugar'. We want that number to be less than 6g per 100g or 100ml to help avoid sugar spikes.

Next time you're in the supermarket, check a few labels. Especially on 'healthy' things like breakfast cereals, muesli bars and flavoured yogurts. Often there's a shed load more sugar in them than you might think. If there's loads more than 6g per 100g then give it a miss and swap for something with less of the added sweet stuff.

Glorious Granola // new recipe up on 👉www.gloriouswellenss.com/blog 👈. Yes I am slightly obsessed by making granola in all its varied combos. But always made with very little added sugar, just a smidge of honey, simple ingredients🌰🌱 and a whole lot of ❤

Latest one is almond, sesame and cinnamon. Mr H just polished off a bowl.

Space // A common theme that's come up a lot with clients this week is creating space. Those pockets of air that help keep us in balance.
.
One client is practising writing for a few minutes every morning when he wakes up. Without worrying about WHAT to write, he just writes for a few minutes to clear his head. It's an under-estimated way to create space: allowing ourselves to put whatever comes into our mind on paper without judging it. Just letting it flow.

Do you journal? I'm not fastidious about it but I do keep a notebook by my bed for capturing brainwaves 💭

#gloriouswellness #befreakingglorious #thehealthcoachtohighflyers #journallove #morningpages

Brilliant brain power // I often speak about brain power, clarity of thinking and how to get amazing energy.

I'm a big believer in the 80/20 rule and #gloriouswellness is about food that nourishes AND giving yourself flex to enjoy cake, chocolate, wine or whatever floats your boat to balance things out.
.
I love a glass of champagne and knowing that there will be many opportunities for 🍾 over the festive period, I decided not to drink any alcohol for a month as a way to recalibrate before silly season.
.
Alcohol impacts sleep, energy and takes the edge off our mental 'sharpness'. It also affects our skin. After 30 days without alcohol, my skin's the clearest and most glowing it's been for ages.
.
What's been your experience of going alcohol-free? .

Spiced parsnip + coconut soup // Ah turmeric. How I love your golden immunity-boosting hue. New recipe up on 👉gloriouswellness.com 👈 now for this heart-warming (and ridiculously easy) soup. Link in bio.

Lots of warming spices help to give this soup anti-inflammatory properties. I opt for powdered turmeric for this recipe (easier to get hold of and less likely to stain the entire kitchen yellow…...). Garlic contains quercetin and allicin, both help protect against harmful bacteria.

Parsnips are cheap, plentiful and in season right now. They’re a good source of fibre, as well as anti-oxidant vitamins C and E.

Happy soupin' x

☕Moderation // Yep I know it's tempting to slam into the morning with a give-me-caffeine-NOW head on. May I propose a smidge of moderation? .

Make it about quality not quantity.
.
One or two coffees a day can be a good thing (if you're not super sensitive to it).
Enjoy the ritual, the smell, the taste, the trip to the coffee-shop if that's your thing. For one of my clients, it's a welcome break away from her office.
Embrace that break.

And in-between drink plenty of water 💧and non-caffeinated drinks.

Have a glorious day x
