In Defence of ‘Clean Eating’

I want to preclude this post by saying that I am a lifelong fan of gluten in all its forms. I adore cheese, I can polish off a Five Guys burger like there’s no tomorrow, and chocolate is my BFF. I am a fan of all food generally (except mushrooms, but let’s not get into […]

9 Ways to Motivate Yourself to Exercise When You’re Really Really Lazy

Obligatory new Nikes Instagram…. Hello! Regardless of the above photo, I have had a lacklustre few weeks when it comes to exercise. There are so many little false beliefs that keep telling myself, e.g. “it’s been so stressful with the house move”, “I’ve got too many work/social commitments to deal with”, “getting up early to exercise will just […]

Nike Women’s 10k #WeRunLondon

Hello hello! Yes, I did another 10k, cause I just can’t get enough of them. They’re challenging enough to collapse in a heap of relief at the finish line, yet not so gruelling that you sustain any long-term injuries or have to spend months in agonising training. After hearing all about how amazing the last Nike […]

How to Cook Steak Properly – an Organic Meat Masterclass

Warning to vegetarians – you may want to look away now! I had the pleasure of going along to an Organic Meat Masterclass last week held at my local Whole Foods store. All week in preparation for my 10k race I had adopted a sober, plant-based diet as that’s when I feel at my healthiest. However, […]

5 Ingredient Recipe: Vanilla Chia Pudding

This is hands down one of my favourite healthy desserts like everrrr. It’s so easy to make and really satisfying. You COULD say it’s a healthy cross between jelly and rice pudding (which used to be my favourite as a kid… except when served with a nasty brown skin on top!) Chia seeds are readily available […]

Interview with Mel Wells, founder of the Green Goddess Life

I’m back from holidaaaayyyy! After a rough week of  watching sunsets, sampling local wines and wandering the ancient streets of Santorini it’s a great feeling to be back at my desk with an already fading tan… Hmm maybe not so much. However, I have missed giving For Good Times’ Sake all the love and attention it […]

The Best Yoga Apps & Online Classes

I started doing yoga just over a year ago and fell in love with how amazing it made me feel! There are so many different styles to suit everyone, and literally anybody can do it – it’s not about being uber flexible, or standing on your head (which I definitely can’t do yet!) It’s about […]

5 Ingredient Recipe: Raw Almond Butter Treats with Chocolate Icing

Well, this is probably the most unhealthy thing I’ve ever made in an attempt to be “healthy” in all my life. But screw it, these massively rich but decadently moreish raw cakes deserve some fanfare for combining five of my all time favourite ingredients. To tell you the truth, I’m not even sure what to call […]

5 Ingredient Recipe: Smoked Mackerel Kedgeree

All hail mackerel! One of the most underrated fish in my opinion. So oily, so smoky-salty, so good. This recipe is cheap as chips too – though I have bent the five ingredient rule ever so slightly and added the spices as extras. You could get away with just curry powder if you’re on a […]

Unsubscribing from ‘Fitspiration’

I’ve been thinking for a while now about what we see as ‘fitspiration’, especially when it comes to measuring our goals and successes online. My views on selfies have always been mixed. While I don’t like the way that our culture has normalised this particular breed of narcissism (plus I need serious help when it comes […]
