Healthy snacking basics
I'm all about balance. Looking and feeling amazing shouldn't mean giving up all your favourite snacks/meals, or social activities. The best way to stay fit and happy for life is to strike the right balance of delicious and nutritious. Eat whole, unprocessed and colourful 80% of the time, and the other 20% of the time enjoy what you love - and no feeling guilty for doing so!
These are my latest favourites that I always have stocked up in my kitchen for when I feel like indulging or adding an extra level of yummy to a meal without compromising my diet/fitness progress.

I love this stuff on bread, bagels, waffles...and usually just by itself on a spoon.
I F$@#'n love this stuff all over my waffles, pancakes, ice cream, or even just fruit (bananas!).
I'm a pancake and waffle addict!
The uses for coconut oil and endless. It's antibacterial and has so many amazing qualities. My favourite is doing a face mask with it after washing. I then place a hot damp towel on my face for a few minutes, and use it to wipe off any excess oil. Doing this before sleep always guarantees a super soft and clean face in the morning.
aloe vera gel
Best light moisturizer and after-sun lotion out there. Acne prone or sensitive skin? Get back to the basics with aloe. I swear my life on it.
sweet almond oil
This oil is a great body moisturizer. It absorbs quickly and I love how long a little bottle lasts. You definitely get the best "mileage" from this if you're someone like me who likes to moisturize after every shower.
A tub of this stuff will last you forever, and it's amazing for deep cleansing masks. Google some easy recipes for your skin type, whether dry or oily.
vitamin e oil
This is the absolute bomb for removing scars and stretch marks, and intense hydration anywhere you need it. It's also a staple for healing tattoos and keeping them looking vibrant.
rose water spray
There's plenty of uses for rosewater, but my favourite it simply using it as a light hydrating and refreshing spray for my face. Particularly on either hot days in the summer, or dry days in the winter.
This lotion is absolutely worth every penny. It smells incredible (but not overpowering), it's silky to the touch, absorbs quickly, and of course makes me feel great knowing it's organic and not full of chemicals like most moisturizers out there.
