As raw food diets continue trending with gusto, more of us are reaching for the raw crunch over regular cooked vegetables. The thinking behind raw food diets is that the less processed or cooked the vegetables are, the more nutrients will remain locked in giving us all the goodness we need… but while raw vegetables may be giving our jaws a workout, is it any better for us?
We’re all guilty for reaching for a sweet treat every now and then. When that craving kicks in, you sometimes have to have super-human strength to resist, or look for an alternative option that isn’t packed full of sugar.
We always try to do what is right for our minds and bodies. We try to eat healthily, we move as much as we can, we play hard, we work hard(ish)… we’re trying to squeeze every ounce out of life! So what doesn’t help is when you find conflicting opinions about health and fitness presented as news.
A mountain can seem pretty tall. Intimidating. How the heck do we even fathom getting to the top?? That first step will be the hardest, but great news! That’s the only ‘first step’ you have to do. Now go for gold!
The world of exercise is a fickle one - there’s always a new craze and fitness fad that promises to make you the healthiest, fittest and most awesome version of yourself! But a question for many is ‘what’s the best workout for me?”
Work: you either love it or hate it, but you can’t deny that a job pays the bills! If only it didn’t take up so much of our time, making it challenging to look after our fitness.
We would all like to be the healthiest and happiest versions of ourselves, but sometimes, trying to develop a fitness habit for life can be a touch tricky.
Exercise: It can make you feel on top of the world, it can make you feel strong, it can make you feel the fittest you've ever been...but guess what? Working out can also make you feel like you want the ground to swallow you up.
Wish you looked forward to your workouts just that little bit more? Most people find they look forward to the idea of their workout, but then when you get there it's a little less exciting... Working out with a friend fills that void!
