Easter treat: homemade raw chocolate strawberries
I’ve always been a big, big lover of all things sweet, particularly chocolate-y sweet things. In recent years, I’ve moved away from commercially made chocolates (with some lindt-y regret) which are typically very processed and laden with sugar. Instead, I make my own and because I only eat natural sugars my taste buds have changed and homemade goodness tastes so, so much better.
Letting go of having to lose weight
Why can’t I lose weight?
Surely you’ve experienced this; you want to lose weight so you try really, really hard, but nothing happens. Then you stop trying, and lo and behold, you lose weight. Why? Because you let go of the notion of having to lose weight and stopped giving so much attention and energy to the idea of losing weight.
Emma's food philosophy
I get asked about my food philosophy all the time and my answer is pretty simple.
Which foods should I buy organic?
I'm sure you'd love to buy organic 24/7 for everything, but budget and seasonal availability can make this tough, so the next question is, which foods should I prioritise?
Easy, healthy chocolate mousse
This healthy take on chocolate mousse is super yummy and super easy. It takes about 5 mins and looks quite impressive.
Happy summer & thank you 2013!
What an incredible year it has been! We opened three new studios in Windsor, Fitzroy and Bondi, hosted our first luxury yoga, barre & stand up paddleboard retreat in Fiji, welcomed 15 new teachers to the Barre Body team, launched our 2nd DVD, Tone & Shape... and Matt and I got engaged!
Stay fit over the holidays
I asked the girls how they were planning to stay well over the Christmas holidays and this is what they said… 1. Paula Lay – I’m including lots of delicious salads with my meals & continuing to experiment with raw desserts, getting lots of inspiration from ‘therawtarian.com’ to stay healthy without compromising on taste!
Why I switched to TOM Organic tampons
I was first introduced to TOM Organic by the lovely Sarah Jensen, the National Account Manager for TOM. She gave be a great big supply of samples that we gave out at Flinders Lane and Windsor. She also have me a huge personal supply to trial. At the time, we talked about the value of
New Barre Body DVD - Tone & Shape
Tone & Shape is longer, stronger and more challenging and the exercises are more complex. Try this if you’ve experienced in barre-style fitness or if you want an extra challenge. This is an intermediate level workout (with options to make it stronger or more gentle to suit your body).
10 things to know about quinoa
Being pretty much vegetarian (aside from fish occasionally), quinoa is one of my staple grains (and you’ll learn why pretty quickly).
1. It’s delicious!. When cooked, quinoa is light and fluffy and has a lovely, slightly nutty flavour. It’s easy to flavour with sauces and dressings. A little trick is to cook it in vegetable stock, rather than water and the veg stock is absorbed into the grains as it cooks, producing a delicious snack that you could eat on it’s own if you wanted.
Eat pretty: superfoods for your skin
Want gorgeous glowing skin? Don’t we all! Here are some of my favourite foods for skin health.
Green tea – I can’t bang on enough about how good green tea is. It’s full of antioxidants (good), which stop those nasty free radicals (bad) in their tracks. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to promote the body’s natural detoxification process as well as get rid of excess fluid from the body. Drink 1-3 cups a day. Trust me.
