You might have noticed from my Snapchat & Instagram that I recently passed a seriously healthy week visiting one of my all-time favourite islands, Ibiza. I’ve been visiting the island for many years, yet every time I go back I’m still blown away by its beauty afresh, and I’m constantly discovering new hidden coves and exciting secret beaches! So when the team from Balearic Bootcamp invited me to experience their week-long fitness retreat on the island, combining two of my loves, wellbeing & Ibiza, it wasn’t a difficult decision… Read MORE to find out exactly what the experience involved, and how it left me feeling…

AVOCADO CHOCOLATE MOUSSE!

Fitness On Toast Faya Blog Girl Healthy Recipe Food Nutrition Health Diet Dessert Indulge Chocolate Mousse Avocado Lighter Choice Tasty Delicious Treat-9GAP
I have a relentless sweet tooth and whilst I try to tame it, nothing ever tastes quite as good as a chocolate dessert! So here’s my version of healthy (in moderation) chocolate mousse! The base is made using avocado which packed with healthy fats and a good amount of dietary fiber too (27g per 100g). The avocado contains a the good monounsaturated fat which will help the body in growth, repair, and development of tissue, including muscle cells. It’s a great alternative to heavy creams which are made of the wrong kind of fat. The end product I assure you tastes just like the real deal! Click MORE to find the rest of the ingredients and ‘how to’…

TARGET YOUR CHAKRAS!

Fitness On Toast Faya Blog Girl Healthy Training Yoga Chakra Daisy Jewellery Routine Sun Holiday Travel Luxury Ibiza Villa Destination Spain Balearic Bootcamp-13GAPI recently went on an active trip to one of my all-time favourite islands, Ibiza (full ‘active escape’ review upcoming!). For decades, the island’s had a strong bohemian feel and it still breathes the same warmth and welcoming today! There’s so much more to discover than the commercial megaclubs; countless hidden beaches, organic farms, horse rides, hikes, tranquil spa hideaways, beautiful hotels, vistas of exceptional natural beauty and much more, which I’ll revisit soon!GAP
Since part of my trip’s daily routine was yoga and mediation with the fabulous instructor Mel, I wanted to focus on Chakras, which in Yogic lore are the 7 core ‘junction boxes’, or centres of energy by which Cosmic energy is said to flow into our bodies. They run down the central pillar of the seated body, and the word itself means ‘Wheel’ in Sanskrit, as Chakras are thought to be spinning vortices of energy. In my photos, Mel shows me how to dispatch some of her favourite poses to help access some of the principal Chakras. I’m also wearing Daisy London’s gorgeous Chakra line of jewellery, inspired by ancient Buddhist symbols representing these 7 core Chakras, which felt appropriate! As you might have spotted on my Instagram, I’m thrilled to be contributing to Daisy’s four-part wellness guide; hop over to their page to find my mini wellness guide and win some jewellery in their competition<MORE>

CLIFF-TOP HIKING IN IBIZA!

Fitness On Toast Faya Blog Girl London Travel Brita Water Fill Go Filter Sukishufu Varley Hip Healthy Ibiza Es Vedra Hike Fashion OOTD-12GAP

On my recent active escape to Ibiza (full review coming up!), I embarked upon a breathtaking clifftop hike, blessed with some of the most spellbinding views the island has to offer. I made my way along the jagged sandstone peaks towards the famous landmarks, Es Vedrà and Atlantis. You may have read my previous post on the Benefits of Hiking, from my Morocco adventure last year; this Ibizan trek included all those same ‘workout’ benefits as in Morocco – a leg workout seriously targeting glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings and calves – PLUS the added work required to achieve stability, coordination, balance, core work and fun! It certainly toasts calories whilst you sweat in the sun and pick up some healthy colour! Staying hydrated in that draining scenario is critical, so I took my BRITA Fill & Go for a swig on the move! Read MORE for the details on my trek, & what I found along the way!

SKINSPIRATION !

Fitness On Toast Faya Blog Girl Healthy Workout Juice Recipe Skin Improvement Benefits of Nuts Avocado Healthy Oils Good Fats Vegetables-5GAP

Around this sunny time of year when the flowers bloom and the air is fragranced with honeyed pollen, I always want to detox and clear my system. I’m a firm believer in eating the highest-quality organic produce available, and am convinced that how you treat your body will show from the inside out. The condition of your skin depends on a number of factors; age, genetics, levels of UV exposure, amount of alcohol consumed, nicotine, diet, hydration, general health, environment etc. However, I think that the skin is a great indicator into your overall health; throughout my teens I struggled with my skin – like many teenagers, I’d get breakouts of acne which really got me down, and I still get the odd spots here and there. The interesting pattern I’ve noticed is that they tend to appear when I’m stressed, or when I’ve eaten a surplus of sugar (natural or otherwise), so I think it’s very much a hormonal consequence of those triggers. Through my struggles with my skin, I found early on how I could help to improve it through diet and behaviours that help my complexion.

COLD-PRESS AHEAD…

Fitness On Toast Faya Blog Girl London Urban Outfitters Fashion Nike Post OOTD Workout Uniform Outfit Clothes-14GAP

I just bought myself a cold-press juicer, which I’ve been meaning to get for ages, but have finally pulled the trigger! Around London, there are countless juice bars that have sprung up from nowhere, all boasting clean branding, wafer-thin fonts, green cloudy bottles and eye-watering prices. I’m all for the juice craze, but as with anything, I think it’s worth finding out what your juice is actually made of – my juicer gives me that control! This post contains one of my all-time favourite juice recipes (The Holy Kale), a few pointers on how to approach juicing, and some images we shot with Urban Outfitters whilst wandering the juicing epicentre – Marylebone!

MONOCHROME MOTIVATION !!!
