I got into Matcha last year after discovering Matcha Latte (made with almond or coconut milk). It made a refreshing change from peppermint tea when I wanted a warm drink that felt more indulgent than a herbal tea. Having given up caffeine 4 years ago I don’t miss the taste or the ritual of it (or the headaches I used to suffer) but I do sometimes miss the warmth of a creamy drink.

I love a green juice mid-morning or mid-afternoon if I’m feeling like I need a break in the office or am just back from a dog walk. They seem to pick me up and provide a spring to my step. All that green goodness is a real energy boost. Although I’ve added so many greens I like to get a scoop of the Arbonne Greens Balance in there too as it has a broad spectrum of fruits and veg in it so you’re getting much more than your single 1 portion. It’s also super alkalsying to your digestive system too which I love.

I love Chia Pudding. It’s amazing how it soaks up liquid to become a gloopy, sticky mess. You need to get the consistency right or it can be a bit frogspawn-ish! So do experiment. Chia seeds are super hydrating, and are bursting with four times more iron than spinach! You can add any fruits that are in season to create a breakfast bowl or supper dessert. I like to add coconut flakes and seeds and nuts too for added fibre and protein.

 

Oh these little bars of heaven are oh so good. When I first made them they were devoured within minutes so if I want to keep them for more than a few days I have to double the batch ingredients (which fits in my tin better too)  and pop them in the freezer, ideally with a label no one can read but me! 

Do you ever get that 3pm slump when you need a little boost and a simple Energy Fizz Stick alone won't do? I love to have some healthy treats in the fridge for just such emergencies. Homemade Energy Balls are a great snack to have on the go, pre a workout or in my desk draw. They keep me going and ensure I dont reach for the really unhealthy stuff that's in the vending machine.
