Your Post Holiday Reset
14th Aug, 2017
IIt’s easy to fall off the bandwagon while on holiday, what with airport meals, piña coladas and not a single home cooked meal. Not to mention our motivation levels seeming to peak at swanning around on inflatable swans. And this down time is COMPLETELY FINE. A few days of indulgence is not going to do any lasting damage, so long as we make sure to regain the balance post-holiday. Here’s how.

Get Back Into a Routine
We humans are creatures of habit, so there's nothing better to get you back on track after a holiday than simply getting back into your normal routine. That's eating meals at the normal times that you would. Getting a goods night sleep each night. Booking onto your regular spin class Thursday lunchtime.

Nourish the Soul
Whenever I get back from a holiday, the first thing I cook is a lentil soup. I literally sit on the plane thinking about how I can't wait to eat it. This Ayurvedic dish is great for digestion, and lentils include all sorts of beneficial nutrients such as magnesium, iron, vitamins and minerals.

Sweat Outdoors
While we can't guarantee the sunshine you might experience while on holiday, our Sunset Sweats series was set up to celebrate our longer summer days. If you close your eyes you could almost be doing that yoga pose on the beach. Next week we've got Hatha Yoga with Ariadne Kapsali, followed by Ballet Blast with Naturally Sassy the following week.
Hello Sunshine

Spring has sprung! Hurrah! Welcome old friend, sunshine, and come forth Mr Daffodil. With the first day of spring falling this Sunday, we are celebrating all things spring here at The Detox Kitchen. Have a read of our top seasonal recipes of the week.

Optimum temperature for eating & storing food

The other day I made a simple salad, plump room temperature tomatoes, with chilled spring onions, hot toasted pumpkin seeds and warm black rice. What made the salad so delicious was that each ingredient was at it's perfect temperature. When I mentioned it to our team it prompted a long debate about what exactly is the optimum temperature for our food.
