  • Winter warmer

    stew-smallBeef and potato energy stew

    Serves 4
    Per portion: 552 calories, 55.1g protein, 13.1g fat, 48.4g carbohydrate, 0.7g salt

    You will need
    900g lean beef steak, diced
    6 shallots, peeled
    3 large carrots, diced 
    2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced 
    3 parsnips, diced 
    Fresh thyme
    500ml cider
    1tbsp Worcestershire sauce
    200g
    can butterbeans
    Salt and freshly ground pepper

    How to make it
    Preheat the oven to 150°C/Gas Mark 2. Toss the meat in some flour and place in a casserole dish with the vegetables. Add all the other ingredients, cover with a lid and cook in the oven for up to four hours.

    Why it’s so good?

    Sweet potatoes have a low G.I, which means they release their energy slowly. This helps keep blood sugar levels stable and prevents energy dips. The butterbeans boost your carbohydrate intake and supply plenty of B vitamins needed to release energy from your food. A lack of energy can sometimes be due to a poor iron intake, and beef is one of the richest and most easily absorbed sources.

  • Increase your training intensity

    Increase intensity

    If you really want to improve your body, increase your intensity.  You are not going to achieve great weight loss by a gentle stroll after dinner.  You are not going to sculpt your biceps by messing around with light weights.  Get serious and don't waste your own time.  If you have allocated time to exercise then do it properly. Go for it...

  • Grapefruit is Citrus dynamite.

    GrapefruitEverybody knows the benefits of "Five a Day" but that is old news.  Few of us know about the benefits of Citrus and the advantages of making one of your five, a Grapefruit.  Yes the citrus and vitamin C from half a Grapefruit per day will hot-wire your organs for weight loss.  Grapefruit genetically re-programmes your liver to burn excess fat from food, rather than storing it.   It will provide up to 78% of your RDA of vitamin C.   So let the power of citrus aid your weight loss and ward off the winter colds in the coming season.

  • Blueberry pancake

    pancake1Ingredients 1/2 a cup of wholewheat flour,  1 cup of oats, 250ml of full-fat milk, 2 scoops of whey protein powder, 2 tablespoons of baking powder, 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon, 1/2 a teaspoon of salt and a handful of blueberries.

    How to make it Blend all the ingredients together to make a creamy batter, if it's too thick add a little water or some more milk and blend again.  Drizzle some sunflower oil into a non-stick pan, add the batter, and cook on a high setting for 3-5 minutes each side.  Take care not to burn.

    Why you should try it Wholewheat flour is more nutritious than refined white flour and it retains most of it's minerals, vitamins and protein.  Full fat milk contains lots of calories to fuel your workouts along with lots of muscle building protein.  Oats are a great source of fibre and contain lots of vitamin E, thought to reduce the risk of heart attacks.  This great tasting pancake is fun to make, it will boost your energy level.
