You’ve undoubtedly heard the term ‘whole food’ being thrown around but whether or not you understand it is a different story. A whole food is one that is still its natural state and hasn’t been processed or refined. The absence of any type of interference to a whole food allows it to retain as much nutritional value as possible. This is just one of the reasons wholefoods are such an invaluable part of our diet and why we want you to know all about them!
Sleep is like the black sheep of a healthy lifestyle- underrated and largely misunderstood. We all put miles of effort into our clean eating, heavy lifting and deep squatting but when it comes to getting a good nights sleep it gets chucked in the low priority basket, even lower on the list than our washing basket full of sweaty active wear.

I think it’s safe to say that we are well and truly sick of this torturous winter cold (Hush, people from actually cold places!) and are beginning to spend way too much time daydreaming about hot and blissful beach days, only be to rudely awakened by a sudden panic because we know we haven’t primed our beach bods to their full advantage.
