Building a healthy breakfast! 💧It's important to hydrate properly after a nights sleep. 💦Dehyrration can lead you feeling grumpy and tired, as well as causing headaches.
🥛Start your day with a glass of water, juice, hot water with honey and lemon or a herbal tea. ☕️Coffee and tea drinkers beware that the caffeine will hydrate you less, so balance this with an additional choice.
🍞Incorporate whole grain foods. Whole grains are great as they can help you feel fuller for longer, important for starting the day. Studies on whole grains suggest that they may help lower the risk of certain cancer types, stoke and type 2 diabetes. Try a wholemeal bagel or toast.
Add a protein source such as: 🥜Vegan: nuts, beans or tofu. 🍳Vegetarian: eggs, yogurt. 🐟Meat eaters: lean meat, or kippers.
🍒🍄Adding fruit and vegetables to kick start your 5-a-day. 🍌Fruit: add chopped banana to porridge or frozen berries, a convenient and low cost addition. 🍅Vegetables: baked beans, fresh or tinned tomatoes, mushrooms and spinach.

A lack of iron in your diet could lead you feeling weak, tired and lethargic all the time.
If you aren't getting enough iron in your diet it can result in low levels of oxygen-carrying haemoglobin in the blood, resulting in the condition anaemia.
The risk of anaemia is reduced with adequate intakes of iron.
It may also be helped by avoiding drinking tea with meals.
Try to eat more:
•Dark-green leafy vegetables like watercress and curly kale. (If you aren’t a fan of leafy veg try blending with a smoothie) • Fortified cereals and bread (products with extra iron)
•Pulses (beans, peas and lentils)
Eat and drink less:
•Tea and coffee
• Milk and dairy

Tip of the day: Switch the bacon and sausages high in saturated fat and salt for a plant based omelette for an easy way of adding veggies to help achieve your 5 a day.
Try adding spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes and red onion for a colourful, healthy start to the day.
I was asked about a bike blender for a school fundraiser at Max’s new school so I thought I’d have a go! Took most of the weekend and every tool I own but it works! All I need now is a Turbo Trainer or the like so the bike remains stationary if anyone has one they would like to donate to the cause?
A great healthy lunch inspired by the Mediterranean diet.
