Can you be healthy and still eat African/Caribbean foods?

Can you be healthy and still eat African/Caribbean foods? There are a lot of misconceptions from African and Caribbean’s about our traditional foods not being healthy or whether if we can still be healthy and eat these foods. I’m here to debunk this myth! First of all, you can still be healthy eating traditional African/Caribbean foods; just as long as is it not everyday. Anything in too much consumption is never good for you! As an African myself I can vouch for Nigerian foods being healthy. A lot of Nigerian dishes use a lot of fresh ingredients. It’s also all about how you make these foods and how often you eat them.  For example lets take Jollof rice; jollof rice...

This is only a guide and you should listen to what your body tells you. Whether or not you train is...

Valerie tells us about her transition to becoming Plant Based. "I’ve been plant based for 2 years now. Since cutting the meats out, I experience less bloating, my skin, health/eczema has improved and it’s made me very aware of what food is. I believe that food is information that we give to our bodies - if we give it natural, unprocessed, nutrient dense food it will respond well. I want that for my body. Within fitness there’s also a misconception that being plant based is both limiting and isn’t ‘enough’. I’ve managed to lose weight and sit at 49kg with lean muscle and gain weight and be 56kg - all on a plant based diet. With being meat free as long...

Lacking motivation?

Blog Post by: Morayo Abiola  Instagram:   By far, one of my most frequently asked questions is how do I stay motivated to train and eat clean all the time? To be honest, I don't, not always! There are some times when I really cannot be bothered to work out and just want to stay indoors and indulge. It's totally normal, you can't expect to be motivated alllllll the time. There are a few things that I did at the start of my journey and still do to keep me consistently in the gym and hitting my goals. 1. Write down your goals - long and short term! Writing down your goals/creating a vision board has really helped me get to my ideal physique....
