This is a short post to revisit the importance of stretching. Why? People are training harder than usual this time of year to whip their bodies into ‘beach mode’ for the upcoming holiday season, so here’s a little reminder of why not to overlook your stretches and why it’s so important! Just by stretching for a few minutes after each session, you’ll see and feel actual, real-life benefits. Check out my favourite 5 (of many) reasons why it’s the way forward, and a few added stretch ‘idea’ photographs to get you started, all shot at the gorgeous Kasbah Tamadot, Morocco, wearing Lululemon and Autumn Cashmere.

MY MOROCCAN INSPIRED SALAD !!!
There was so much to absorb from the rich and involving culture of Morocco; above all else, the food was the most prominent aspect in my mind, and you can see some of my delicious observations in the pictures below. I found the sumptuous mix of fresh vegetables, rich spiced flavours, and exotic fruits (usually home-grown), blended to create an orgy of heavenly new flavours. I felt totally inspired to create my own delicious ‘Moroccan Salad’, since it seems to be such a mainstay of the local diet!
So here’s a fairly quick and easy recipe, just without a lot of the sugars, oils and breads that seem to be de-rigeur for the Moroccans! FYI this works really well with grilled chicken or any type of fish; just pop it on top to tick the ever-important protein box! Click below to see photos (shot at Dar Yacout and the Kasbah Tamadot) and read the ‘how-to’ 🙂 Enjoy! Faya x
