Natural Ways To Keeping Stress Free!

Cleanse & Detox - Cleanse Nurture Restore

Are you sick and tired of well always being sick and tired?

I am!

Stress can impact us all in many different ways and it can creep up on us out of nowhere. With stresses lurking around every corner it is understandable we feel this way!

Living in a town and city there are ‘stresses’ everywhere. Rush hour in the morning, constant digital activity, sirens, crowds, coffee, too many things on our plate, notification after notification and the fact that life just keeps us – well – busy.

Many of the things listed above can’t go away. We all need to go to work, live our day to day lives and balance work + play – that is the way life is. However, there are small ways we can support our body to ensure that when the going gets tough we are prepared.

Natural Ways To Keeping Stress Free!

I thought I would share my top natural ways to keep stress free and hope that by introducing some simple swaps you can #girlboss your way into each week!


1) Meditation

The buzz word at the moment…but it works.

A simple technique practised for as few as 10 minutes per day can help you control stress, decrease anxiety, improve cardiovascular health, and achieve a greater capacity for relaxation.

If you have never done it before I would recommend Headspace or Buddhify. Great apps for guiding you and they have different meditations depending on how you feel. You have to pay £4.99 for Buddhify but I would definitely recommend the purchase.

Peace And Harmony Pukka


2) Herbal Supplements

– Ashwagandha

Last year by a friend who introduced me to Ashwagandha. This root has been used for centuries to help those with adrenal and nervous system problems. Research shows that this root calms and energises and helps us adapt to stress in our modern day lives. I rRecommend: Pukka Ashwagandha

– Turmeric

Happiness is one thing you can never get enough of, and curcumin found in turmeric plays a powerful role in getting and keeping your mood high. Turmeric has also been linked to protecting against sleep deprivation, therefore if you find that you are a night worrier, including this herb/spice into your diet can boost your overall zen.

I find the best way to slip this little spice in my daily diet is via a supplement (again Pukka) or this delicious Turmeric Latte by Wunder Workshop

Turmeric Latte CynCity

 

 

 

 

 

 


3) Get Outside

Out of the office, out of the city or just out for a lunch time. Moving your body and breathing in fresh air is good for the soul. You will find that any stressful encounter or phone call can leave you ready to burst but a 10 minute walk around

You will find that any stressful encounter or phone call can leave you ready to burst but a 10-minute walk with some deep breaths can restore you back to a normal place.

Ideally, if you can get to the great outdoors! Get some quality fresh air, long walks, good food and peace & quiet – Hygge if you will – you will reset ready to tackle the year head on!


Roses Pukka Last Chapter Cleanse Nurture Restore

4) Regular Massage

Massage can work wonders when you’re stressed out. We hold a lot of tension in our bodies and having someone work out those knots can really loosen you up.

One of my favourite apps to use is Urban Massage – you type in what massage you want, choose your therapist and they come to your home!! Yes! So after a long day all you need to do is get home, get comfy and let the professionals do the work.

If you sign up using the link on my home page… you’ll also get a £10 off your first massage 😉

I hope you enjoy my little tips. These are genuine tricks which I use to maintain my cool and ride through the stressful times. We all go through them and finding little coping mechanisms can truly ease you through.

Avocado and Pomegranate Tabbouleh

Avocado and Pomegranate Tabbouleh

Avocado and Pomegranate Tabbouleh

It’s Sunday and you’re planning your lunches for the week ahead!

The buzz words in your head are CLEAN LEAN PROTEIN GOOD FATS LOW CARB VEGAN

and then your mind goes blank…

Well here is a perfect little dish that you can make ahead of time and will last up to 3 days in the fridge! It is easily transported in Tupperware and just tastes better and better…


Quinoa, Avocado and Pomegranate Tabbouleh

Ingredients:

80g quinoa – read packet instructions on how to make nice and fluffy.

6 tomatoes, diced into small chunks

1/2 cucumber

5 large handfuls of roughly chopped fresh, flat-leaf parsley

1  handful of chopped fresh mint

1 large ripe Hass avocado

2 tablespoons of toasted flaked almonds

Pomegranate seeds (you can buy these at most supermarkets pre-seeded if you need) If you can’t find pomegranates sultanas can be used as a substitute

2 large handfuls of leaves such as watercress, spinach and rocket


Dressing

6 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

1 grated garlic clove

2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons of good quality honey

Sea salt and Black Pepper

Avocado and Pomegranate Tabbouleh

Method

Drain and rinse the quinoa well – make sure there are no bubbly bits in the water as these are the natural saponins which are not good for digestion. Cook according to packet instructions, usually 15 minutes, then drain and set aside to cool. Run a fork through it to lightly fluff up the quinoa

Put all the ingredients for the dressing in a jam jar (if you have one) and shake or grab a glass and whisk with a fork

Chop the tomatoes and cucumber – remove the seeded bit of the cucumber as this can make the salad go quite wet. If you cut the cucumber in half then half again lengthways – grab a spoon and run it down from top to bottom you will find the seeds will pull out quite easily.

Combine the warm quinoa, tomatoes, cucumber and herbs with the dressing.

At this point, if you wish to save for lunches this week – leave to cool till cold. Then seal in Tupperware and keep in the fridge (see more info below)

Make a gorgeous bed of salad, place the tabbouleh on top, and add chopped avocado and pomegranate

Dry fry the flaked almonds few minutes on a medium heat until toasted and scatter over the tabbouleh.

Serve warm or cold


Avocado and Pomegranate Tabbouleh

Transport

Keep the tabbouleh in the fridge

On the day of lunch: chop the avocado and place in a container with a squeeze of lemon/lime on top (this will stop from going brown) and place pomegranate.

Grab some toasted almonds (you can buy them pre-toasted) and sprinkle on top – just before eating for extra crunch

Place salad leaves on top in order to keep them fresh


Nutrition

Quinoa is full of protein

Avocado is a great healthy fat

and the rest is made up of beautiful skin nourishing herbs, fruit and veggies

Delicious, Nutritious and Perfect for anyone on the run!

Pukka Turmeric Lifekind

Pukka

Pukka Herbs are an incredible brand who’s products, teas and supplements are organically created here in the UK. From Sleep to Stress they have a solution to support your daily needs. Due to Pukka’s phenomenal popularity, many people do not realise how committed they are to ayurvedic medicine and organically and naturally produced herbs. This is a company that cares.

Turmeric Lifekind

Is one of my favourite go-to’s to support my daily needs. It naturally supports my system with its anti-inflammatory properties. It comes in a handy little capsule that I pop in my bag to take just before breakfast and morning cup of Detox Tea.

The BBC did a report that found that increasing your intake of turmeric (curcumin) has shown to affect the cells responsible for depression, eczema, asthma and cancer.

“It was really exciting, to be honest. We found one particular gene which showed the biggest difference. And what’s interesting is that we know this particular gene is involved in three specific diseases: depression, asthma and eczema, and cancer. This is a really striking finding.”

There was evidence turmeric is lipophilic which means for it to be absorbed it is best taken with fat…roll on those coconut turmeric eggs!


Supplements-daily

Sönd Skincare

Have you heard about Sönd? Sönd is a new skincare system for sensitive skin, which harnesses the incredible natural power of silica. Their Energise + Activate supplements are incredible for dull skin and are formulated to replenish your skin with collagen forming silica, and to improve the overall health, function and appearance.

Their packaging is simple and chic and they pride themselves on looking after your body from the inside out as well as topically.

The tablets contain minerals which are also really good for promoting healthy sleep – which is also an added bonus for our skin.

I will keep you updated with my results but anything that will brighten my skin and help me sleep better is always a bonus.

 (I showed the ingredients list to a biochemist who was impressed and said she would take these)

Sond-Energise-Activate


Conclusion

There are lots of brands out there pushing vitamins to us that are low quality or full of fillers. Do your research prior to taking supplements and make sure the brand you use know their ingredients.

I hope you find my recommendations useful and informative. I am open and honest with my suggestions and would only recommend products I have tested and used myself. I have run all ingredients past a qualified biochemist to investigate.

HIIT at Home

Freezing

Baby it is cold outside!

This makes my “walk to work” ethos take a bit of a side hit as health comes first.

To combat the loss of my morning walk I have put together a HIIT workout that you can do in your living room that requires only a phone (and a playlist see below)

It takes 20 minutes… And the endorphins have made me buzz all day!

The Workout

You will need an interval timer on your phone.

I use Interval Timer 

but there are a ton of other apps which you can download which suit you the best.


Routine

I do 3 minutes warm-up
15 rounds 30 seconds on/ 30 seconds off
2-minute cooldown

Anti-Inflammatory Vegetable Coconut Curry

Coconut Curry

Anti-Inflammatory

You may have heard the word Anti-Inflammatory thrown about. It usually comes in the same sentence of alkaline and alkalise but not really know what it means?

Do not worry you are not alone. However, if it is one new word you can put into your mind this month I would highly recommend

When we talk about inflammation and the body we are talking about: joint pain, chronic fatigue, acne, digestive issues or any amount of pain in the body.

Inflammation is one of the largest root causes of disease today. Diabetes, heart disease and other major health problems all stem back to inflammation in some way or another. When the body is out of balance, the pH levels of the blood are affected. This not only disturbs the body’s natural processes but also makes you feel pretty horrible in the meantime.

Many people are even suffering inflammation and possibly don’t even realize it.


What can you do to minimise Inflammation?

Well, first things first an alkaline diet helps with inflammation.

Broccoli

Filling your body with:

Ginger
Garlic
Turmeric
Broccoli
Avocado
Salmon
Walnuts
Almonds
and of course lots and lots of greens!

avocado

The main culprits that cause inflammation are the usual CRAP

C – Caffeine
R – Refined Sugar
A –  Alcohol
P – Processed Food

So if you cut down on these and boost on the others your body will start to feel refreshed and vibrant.


Anti-Inflammatory Coconut Curry

Here is a little recipe I make when I am feeling a little inflamed to put my body back in check.

I cook this up, package it up and take it to the office with me to keep my body de-stressed even if it’s stressful at work!

Coconut curry

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2cm root ginger, peeled and grated
  • 3 tablespoons curry powder
  • 4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 fresh chilli, seeded and sliced
  • 500g butternut squash, diced
  • 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 5 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Method
Prep: 15min Cook: 30 mins Store: in fridge or freeze

Heat the oil in a large pan and fry onion, garlic, ginger, curry powder, turmeric and chilli for about 2 minutes.

Add in squash and allow to brown slightly.

Stir in tomatoes and coconut milk.

Simmer gently for 20 minutes until thickened. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

For extra leafy goodness – add some spinach at the end when cooling.

Spinach

The Turmeric which I use for this recipe is Wunder Workshop Organic Golden Turmeric Powder.

A Notting Hill based food brand focussing on health promotion & disease prevention.

Set up by Tom & Zoe, WUNDERWORKSHOP is inspired by Ayurveda – the Science of Life, whose principles are based upon a preventive approach to health. WUNDERWORKSHOP uses functional ingredients to maximize life‘s potential, enabling you to live better, work harder and to be stronger (for longer!).

Vegan for a Month


photo-06-11-2016-16-55-18


 Vegan

I decided to go Vegan for 30 days after watching Leonardo di Caprio‘s documentary Before the Flood. The documentary opened my eyes to the fact that as human beings we are so disassociated with our World and our impact on it, especially when it comes to food.

One of the most profound statements in the documentary…

Of all the reasons for tropical deforestation, the foremost is beef.

Beef is one of the most inefficient uses of resources on the planet.

Climate Change

In the U.S., 47 percent of the land is used for food production and, of that, the lion’s share is just to grow feed for cattle. The things that we actually eat—fruit, vegetables, nuts—it’s a percent.

Most importantly, cows produce methane. And methane is a powerful greenhouse gas … About 10-12 percent of total U.S. emissions is due to beef. It’s staggering … Maybe not everyone is ready to eat tofu 24/7. I get that.

But even if you just have to have some flesh between your teeth, if you switch to chicken, you will have eliminated 80 percent of what you emit, depending on where you are coming from.

Now that was one of the most profound pieces of information I have ever heard. One small change as small as that could reduce my carbon footprint.


7 Day Vegan Diet

I started going about what I was going to plan to eat. I reached out to a few nutritionist friends, namely Rhiannon Lambert @rhitrition, who advised me about what vitamins and nutrients I would need to supplement while being on the vegan train. These were B12, Whole Proteins and Iron.

Searching for a good vitamin source and stumbled across Together vitamins. I liked these vitamins particularly because the company are dedicated to making the most natural, wholesome and healthiest supplements you’ll find! I would recommend the Vegan Bundle to give you all your dietary needs. VITL vegan supplements were great for the extra boost of my daily dose!

Vegan Granola Delicious Tasty Low Calorie

Next the menu:

Breakfast: One of the hardest bits about vegan from my point of view. I love eggs, sustainably sourced they are an amazing source of protein, fat and vitamin B12 and are delicious.

  • Vegan Granola: (See Picture) – this became my go to. I went with lots of different variations which I have listed in one of my previous blogs Easy Vegan Granola. Loaded with pecans, walnuts, sultanas, seeds, coconut flakes… the list goes on. I would have this with Pip N Nut Coconut Almond milk (in my opinion the best flavour!)
  • Avocado Toast: Tasty – especially when served on E5 sourdough
  • Argan on Toast: A game changer if you miss the butter. Get some delicious bread and drizzle argan oil and season. Delicious.

Granola Tasty Argan Oil Vegan Easy


Lunch: My lunches mainly consisted of various curries. Ranging from Thai, India and tomato based they were filling and nourishing – also great Winter Warmers Sprouts Greens 

  • Thai: The base was made from coconut milk, ginger, turmeric, chilli, yellow split pea lentils and lemon. I would throw in a number of different veggies from sugar snap peas, baby corn, squash, and fried up tofu.
  • Indian: Coconut, red lentil and tomato base with a choice of turmeric with garam masala, tikka, cayenne, or a general curry powder. These curries are best had with aubergine, root veg and courgette.
  • Fusions: With a general base of coconut and tomato I would add different spices from Ras el Hanout or other spices to vary things up.

All of these curries cost me as little at £10 to make about 9 meals. I would make two types of curry and then freeze half. Switching between flavours on different days meant the variety was great. These really took the difficulty of finding vegan options around work – which sometimes was extremely difficult as a lot of places only provided Vegan Options.


Daylesford Vegan Vegetables Colour Vegan for a Month

Supper and Eating Out: I wanted to see what London had to offer on the vegan front!

  • Tofu Stir Fry: My go-to for a quick and tasty fix in the evening.
  • Redemption Bar: A purely Vegan restaurant. It’s a dining experience as the whole menu is free-form yet they provide three delicious courses, cocktails and desserts that are delicious.
  • Falafel Bar: Situated next to Shoreditch High Street station there is a falafel pop-up run by two Turkish men. They provide crunchy yet soft falafels with sides. Their sauces are made with tahini and other non-animal products. Large portions and plenty of salad for only a few pounds.
  • Cook Daily: Massive bowls of veggie goodness. Quirky names, interesting fillings and my first introduction to chickN (not sure even now what it was). They are delicious and huge but come at a price of £9.
  • The RookeryNot a known vegan restaurant but I will give this wonderful bar a shout out. They took their seasonal and sustainable menu to the kitchen and went through each meal with the chef. They then came back and let me know at least 4 dishes and sides they could adapt in order I could eat. Very thoughtful
  • Cafe Fleur: Nestled in Wandsworth this cute little cafe provides a full menu of Vegan options dotted throughout. Their tasty Vegan Brunch) pictured below was colourful and tasty. Great coffee and a perfect atmosphere. This is the perfect spot for the weekend.

Cafe Fleur Vegan Breakfast Vegan for a Month


Conclusion

Right, let me get to the pros and cons of the Vegan Lifestyle.

Cons:

  • People treat you differently. Every time you bring a meal, morsel or anything to do with food there is a constant reminder that you are different.
  • Bloating. Be warned lentils maybe your friend and your foe.
  • Tiredness. You must make sure you supplement. I became extremely tired on week 3.
  • Less choice.
  • Careful planning of every meal.
  • Skin fluctuations.

Pros:

  • The first week there was no bloating and I felt – different – lighter.
  • Slept like a baby the entire month. It was incredible.
  • Less anxiety and irritability.
  • Meal planning meant less money spent.
  • Tonnes of veg in my diet.
  • Felt good – never any guilt.
  • Learned more about the food industry and left the challenge feeling enlightened.

The question many ask – am I still Vegan? The answer to that is no. I enjoyed the challenge and I have learned a lot about a lifestyle that I was unfamiliar with. There are certain elements of my diet that I enjoy for example eggs however, the whole experience has taught me to question my sources, research my producers and make sure I eat with kindness and empathy.
