Bake Off Is Back: Here's 5 Healthy Baking Recipes

The Olympics is great and I for one will be very sad when they are over. But there's something on the horizon to help soften the blow - Great British Bake Off!

Now into its seventh series, Bake off has been inspiring people to turn their hand at folding and stirring, kneading and icing since it came on our screens back in 2010. If you find yourself getting inspired by Bake Off, expanding your baking repertoire doesn't have to mean expanding your waistline too. Check out the 5 healthiest bakes we've found on the net!

After 3 years of excess at uni took a serious toll on my waistline and wellbeing, I found that a love for strength training, HIIT and spin classes were key to keeping me healthy and happy. I'm at the forefront of finding out and creating awesome stuff about health, fitness and happiness for our Movers and when I'm not at work I love nothing more than pizza and prosecco in the sun with friends. What motivates me? Knowing that life is short...

Get more happiness
in your life.
