As you might have read from a previous post, I’m now studying to become a Health Coach, with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I’m learning loads everyday, which I really want to share with you.

Some would think that eating healthy is difficult, time-consuming and expensive, but I beg to differ. If I can put a healthy meal in less than 15 minutes and for little money, so can you. It’s no rocket science.

Here are a few useful tips that you can keep in mind:

My journey to Health Coaching

Dear readers,

This is a long-overdue post, it’s high time I updated you on the exciting changes in my life (which are going to benefit all of you actually). My sister calls it my rebirth, and it’s actually how it feels.

To start with, my two cats, my cold-press juicer and myself have just moved to another continent, in a totally different life. We have joined my partner in Maputo (Mozambique) where the avocados are bigger, pineapple sweeter, and mangoes tastier than I have ever experienced. It’s fruit and vegetable paradise, my kind of heaven.  Continue reading

The Curried Courgette ‘Spaghetti’

When I eat on my own, I can’t be bothered preparing an elaborated meal. I made this dish with three ingredients and in less than 10 minutes, it’s super easy and fun to eat! Needless to say that it’s also very much healthy and clean.

Ingredients (for one)

  • Courgette, 1/2
  • Cherry tomatoes, a big handful
  • Coriander, a handful
  • Curry powder, 1 teaspoon
  • Salt and pepper

Procedure

Wash the courgette and tomatoes. Use a spiraliser to make the courgette spaghetti or simply cut it in long stripes. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half. Chop the coriander.

Heat a little olive oil in a pan and add the spaghetti, cook until tender. In another pan, cook the cherry tomatoes until tender as well. Add the curry powder, salt and pepper.

Serve warm, sprinkle with the coriander. You can add some parmesan cheese if you fancy it!

Tadaaaaaaa!
