Fitness On Toast Faya Blog Girl Healthy Recipe Chocolate Brownie Sweet Potato Healthier Recipe Dessert Tea Snack Lighter Low GI Carb Cheat Treat

Almost everyone loves Sweet Potato; it naturally sits one level higher than potato on the deliciousness continuum, precisely because of the inclusion of the word ‘sweet’. These tuberous wonders profess lower-GI properties, rendering them ‘complex carbs’, whos sugars break down over a longer period of time. These properties, in turn, are less likely to leave you a hyperactive sugar-high child for an hour, followed by transformation into crushed zombie at your sugar trough for the ensuing 4 hours. With that in mind, I thought I’d throw out the recipe for something quite delectable; these gluten free sweet potato chocolate brownies are provocatively moist, soft and gooey thanks to the inclusion of this masterful, hero ingredient, which keeps them molten and exquisite. You’ll find this recipe along with a bunch of other desserts, breakfasts, lunches dinners and snacks in my book Fit in 3, which contains a mammoth 60 recipes in total, all Scandi-inspired. Check out this recipe below… (more…)

Fitness On Toast Faya Blog Girl Healthy Health Workout Arm Exercise Forever 21 Virgin Active Gym Training Fashion-21

This post is about how to banish the infamous ‘bingo wings’, which secretly work to veil the triceps like a hood; those so-called ‘triceps’ are a large, three-headed group comprising a long, medial & lateral head, all positioned towards the back of the upper-arm. Whether in or out of the gym, we use them for every movement requiring a push, and indeed some that require pulls too. Weaker triceps could well limit the effectiveness of training shoulders, chest and back, and might also stop you from heroically saving the day if extreme arm strength is required in some sort of an emergency! When worked-out properly, you can actually sculpt these triceps so that they look just-so for an upcoming spring getaway occasion!

BLOGGING 101 ???

Fitness On Toast - Workspace Images

Since I started blogging, I’ve repeatedly been questioned about how it all comes together to form a blog post. One of the most regular emails that lands in the Fitness On Toast inbox is from people who are setting off on their own exciting blog journeys, and are seeking ‘tips & tricks’. I can’t answer all of those, so this post is supposed to tackle exactly that; It’s 2.5 years worth of blogging experience distilled into a behind-the-scenes slither of insight, packaged as a ‘top-7’ post!

Fitness On Toast Faya Blog Girl Healthy Skin Imedeen Pure Collagen Derma One Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat Four Seasons France Travel-10It’s my firm belief that the best way to nourish the skin is from the inside out – through exercise, keeping hydrated, enjoying a good amount of sleep and eating plenty of organic and fresh produce in a well-balanced diet. You might remember I recently listed some of my favourite tips to get glowing skin HERE. I know myself that when I’ve been out partying for a few days, (a little alcohol, some late nights, limited sleep, perhaps too many sugary foods etc), I’ll be feeling and looking tired with circles under my eyes and the occasional break out! This post is the second and concluding part to my efforts to eat & live healthily, supported by the Scandinavian skincare company Imedeen, in order to improve the quality of my skin.

Spring has finally sprung in London, and I’m totally throwing myself into it! I don’t know about you, but when the sun is out and the flowers start to bloom, it utterly transforms my mental state.

Going for a run in the park is often my way of marking the arrival of spring, as watching the buds in the trees bursting into bloom is invigorating and gives me a dose of true happiness!

Fitness On Toast Faya Blog Girl Healthy Recipe Nutrition Quorn Protein Collaboration Fatoush Salad Main-21

I recently enjoyed an awesome day of shooting with my friends at Quorn Foods in a super-cool Shoreditch loft, which housed the most gorgeous, bright-and-airy kitchen I’ve ever seen – the dream! It was part of our collaboration to come up with some healthy recipes featuring their meat free products; a sort of ‘Cooking with Faya’ event, where I had the opportunity to whip up my latest healthy green salad recipe, the Quorn Fattoush Salad. As a pescatarian (fish, but no meat) I’ve always used products like Quorn Meat-free Chicken pieces as a high-protein, low-saturated-fat source of nutrition – something I personally consider to be a key part of any healthy diet. This recipe is super quick and easy-to-make, requiring no more than 15-20 mins of your precious time (max!) – depending how quickly you chop and toss the salad!
