Chocolate & Coconut Granola

Breakfast and chocolate are 2 of my favourite things, so this chocolate coconut granola paired with some soya yoghurt and fresh fruit is just a perfect way to start my day. This is such an easy recipe and takes minutes to prepare and cook.

Tomato & Pesto Puff Pizzas

I used to love making puff pastry tarts when I was at University, so I was thrilled to see that Genius have created a gluten free puff pastry! These puff pastry pizzas are so easy to make and are delicious.

My Marathon

So here's some interesting news; I've decided to do My Marathon next month for The British Heart Foundation - having struggled with a rare form of heart condition (Postural Tachycardia Syndrome) for the past couple of years, I have finally built up the confidence, strength, health and fitness (eventually) to get back into keeping fit and exercising. Not only am I doing this for myself to prove I can achieve a significant exercise challenge but of course also for an absolutely amazing and worthy cause. This marathon is great for people who, like me, aren't natural runners or aren't in the best fitness shape - anyone can do this marathon and the best thing about it is you can do it at your own pace and whenever and wherever you choose. It consists of running / walking 26.2 miles, you can do it progressively over the month too, so no pressure to do it in a day! I'll be doing this with my 2 housemates - they have both been extremely supportive of me throughout my good days and bad days and they have been extremely encouraging in getting me back into fitness carefully and at my own pace (so, here's a little thank you to my 2 lovely personal trainers and best friends - you are the best!) I can't encourage you enough, try it for yourselves and feel amazing for doing so.

You've Got To Start Somewhere...

It's very easy to get into a habit of just slobbing on the sofa or lying in bed watching film after film but realistically it's no good for you in the long run. I've always wanted to get back into fitness since finishing school at 18 years old, don't get me wrong, I tried to go to the gym at University but it proved a lot harder than I expected - There was never enough time and the free time I did have I spent going out with friends so it was never a difficult decision when it came to gym vs. socialising. In my final year of uni it was impossible with the work load and I fell ill with a rare heart condition, so since that happened I've always been fairly reluctant to get back into any form of fitness. However, recently I have realised the importance of staying active and (trying) to get myself fit.
