Tips for Healthier Shopping

“I just need to stop at the grocery store to grab a few things.” That’s what you said to yourself about an hour ago. Now you’re standing in an aisle stocked with chips, crisps, and dips and your shopping cart brimming full with them. You find yourself wondering, “how in the world did I get…

Balancing Fitness With a Busy Life

  I’ve been MIA for a couple of weeks now because of my ridiculous work schedule which had me travelling out of state to work at my Company’s site in a rural area with limited basic infrastructure.

Healthy Food Options in Lagos

When I moved back to Nigeria in the summer or 2008 there were very few healthy options to enjoy. I honestly can’t remember anything really.

‘Mean Green’ Juice Recipe

When I tell people I love drinking green juice I don’t always get the best reaction. Most people I’ve talked to have viewed it quite negatively. “Ewww that sounds gross”  “That sounds awful.

Fitness + Wellbeing

When I started this journey, I didn’t want to do the same old boring routine of gym, gym, gym, repeat. Despite my lack of muscle tone lol, I know my way around the gym quite well. But I wanted to try something different because what usually happens is that every time I start working out at…
