Now, I know I’d have a hard time convincing readers (Irish ones anyway) to drink green tea instead of beer on St. Patrick’s Day, but I thought it would be a fun way to share some of green tea’s health benefits. These benefits include healthy glowing skin and a stress reduction effect on the mind!

Happy pancake Tuesday! Today is traditionally the day we (in Ireland anyway) attempt to eat our body weight in pancakes, before the beginning of Lent. While I may not agree with the overeating, I do have a healthier option for people who still want to enjoy pancakes today.

I’m guessing if you are reading this, you are like me – passionate about health and fitness.

I love salmon, it’s an excellent source of protein, it’s full of omega-3 essential fatty acids and it contains a powerful antioxidant called astaxanthin which mops up free radicals.

Healthy Granola Bites

This recipe was inspired by a comment Ray left on my┬áHealthy Cereal Recipe post. So I set out to see if I could make a bar version of that recipe and after a bit of tweaking I think I got it just right. But be warned they definitely taste like “more”!

Health Food Of The Week – Avocado

Starting this week I’m going to be focusing on one health food that you may or may not currently eat. The idea is to encourage us to eat a wider variety of foods and to try at least one new food each week. First up – avocado. Avocados are excellent for your health, not only […]

Healthy Cereal Recipe

Cereal. I used to eat a lot of it when I was growing up. Eventually I gave it up completely and switched over to oatmeal. But from time to time the idea of some crunchy cereal really appeals to me, and this recipe works perfectly for those occasions. It’s also a great healthy alternative to […]
