Hi Ladies ( & Gents)…..

A very strange statement I know… Eat Pilates! What’s all that about?

Better posture means less back pain and more energy.

Eat smart with my top 10 things to eat if you do Pilates.

1.  Avocados

Good for – muscle growth and joint health.

Add to salads, serve with plain grilled meats and fish.

2.Bone Broth

Good for – joint mobility.

Drink it plain, or use it as a base for soups, stews and sauces.

3. Cottage Cheese

Good for – muscle building

Cottage cheese is good on its own or eat it with fruit raspberries, blueberries, blackberries or strawberries.

4. Broccoli

Good for – fighting inflammation

Include this powerhouse veggie in your daily menus.

Steam up a good batch and keep in fridge so it’s ready to eat anytime.

5. Macadamia Nuts

Good for – building muscle and boosting energy

Eat as is but watch your quantities – macadamias have more calories than any other nut (204 calories an ounce)

Alternatives – walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts.

6. Chocolate !!!!!

Good for – enhancing flexibility

Make sure you’re eating dark chocolate that contains at least 70% cocoa.

7. Salmon

Good for – building muscle and reducing inflammation

Sauté, broil or bake salmon fillets, for a ready to eat version choose smoked salmon.

8. Grapefruit

Good for – enhancing joint health and giving you energy

Peel like an orange and add it to green salad, a fruit salad or an avocado salad.

9. Turmeric

Good for – post workout recovery

Use in Indian and middle eastern dishes, sprinkle on veggies before roasting, add to whole grains such as quinoa and brown rice before cooking or stir into salad dressing.

10. Kefir

Good for – building strong bones, aiding digestion and boosting immune system

Drink by itself or make a kefir smoothie with kefir, spinach and half a cup of frozen fruit.

Drink coconut water as an alternative.

Here’s to good health !!!

Have a great week xxx
