Spicy Sausage & Veg Pizza

This pizza, although far lower in calories than anything you local pizza shop could delver, is sure to fill you up. The wholemeal pizza base is stacked high with grilled pork sausage, pepperoni, stir fry veg, cheese, tomatoes, oregano and fresh basil.

Best of all, it takes minutes to make and there's minimal clearing up to do afterwards, making it an ideal midweek meal.

Activity holidays are becoming increasingly popular, from yoga retreats to hiking holidays. They can be a great way to travel, see sights, meet new people and of course, get fit at the same time! One provider of walking, cycling and hiking holidays is World Walks.

From reducing stress levels to being an effective intervention for depression, walking is a fantastic and free activity for many to enjoy.

Green Power Smoothie - high in vitamins, fibre and protein

Smoothies are a great way to pack loads of fruit and vegetables into your day. They're easy and quick to make and economic in that they can be useful way to use up left over fruit and veg. These days, smoothies no longer consist of simply blended fruit, many contain seeds, ground nuts, spices, honey, yoghurt and protein powders in order to boost the nutritional content of the smoothie. 

The recipe below is for a smoothie I like to take to work to get in 4 servings of fruit and veg and plenty of protein and fibre to keep me going inbetween meals.

Eye-Fi Mobi - A wireless memory card that's perfect for sports, travel & weddings!

The Eye-Fi Mobi App in action!
A little disclaimer, this post has nothing to do with health or fitness. I basically just like technology and when I find a gadget that makes some part of my life easier, I want to share it with others. I'm sure I'll be the same in the midst of wedding planning (wedding planner apps!) and when I become a parent (gadgets now exist that can predict when a baby will wake up!). Perhaps this blog will eventually expand to become a more of a lifestyle blog... who knows?!

The Eye-Fi Mobi card has saved me so much time since coming back from holiday last week. It looks just like a regular SD memory card and fits in any digital camera as a replacement for a SD card. What makes it it special is that any pictures taken on the card can be wirelessly transmitted to your smartphone thanks to the card's own built-in WiFi. 

This means that there's no longer a need to wait until you to get home to your laptop (or to the nearest WiFi source) to have your camera photos on your phone to share with others.

BRYT Skincare - I've finally found my perfect products!

It's unusual for me to get really excited and hyped up about a skincare range and it's been a long time since I've had an a noticeable effective skincare range. Lately my stress levels combined with hormonal imbalances have played havoc with my skin, leaving it spot prone and a combination of oily and dry. Usually foaming cleansers leave the area around my nose really dry and serums leave my skin feeling sticky but I have finally found a cleanser and serum that compliment my skin type perfectly and leave my skin feeling smooth, clear and really soft. 

BRYT skincare is a range of botanical products created for men and women of all ages, but especially for teens and young adults.

The range includes my two favourite shakes - the new 'UFit Breakfast' and 'UFit Pro 50' - a super sized protein shake that can be spilt into two throughout the day or consumed immediately after an endurance session (or in my case, consumed at the gym in between an Insanity class followed by Body Pump!)
