Pineapple smoothie bowl recipe

I've always liked smoothies, but over the past 6 months I've gone from always making banana with oats and chocolate to having a Pinterest board dedicated to them and mostly making them up depending on what's too ripe in the fruit bowl.

They make a great breakfast, whether you're on the go and need something to take with you, or if you're feeling a bit worse for wear after a night out.

My latest concoction is this delicious pineapple smoothie bowl. Pineapple is a super fruit packed full of vitamins. It contains vitamin C, which is an antioxidant and boosts our immune system. It also contains vitamin A. For the body conscious, it is known to avoid fluid retention and therefore contributing to a less bloated, flatter stomach.

Delicious quinoa salad with feta cheese and pomegranate



When you try to eat healthily there are some ingredients that appear everywhere. Sweet potatoes are a good alternative to regular potatoes and kale is the be all and end all. But if you're not used to cooking with them, sometimes it can be tricky to incorporate them into your diet.

Quinoa is one of those. It is well known for its nutritional goodness, packed full of aminoacids, and a great source of protein. Although low GI diets seem a thing of the past, quinoa is in fact low in GI, which means that it takes your body longer to digest it and it releases energy more slowly, leaving you full for longer.
