It was so lovely to meet you all at the Vision “Happy Healthy Hormones” event last week. I hope you took away some new nutrition tips to incorporate into your everyday life & prepare you for an easy transition through the dreaded M!
I also hope you enjoyed the chia pudding workshop. I’d love to hear if you liked the chia puddings & how they worked out. It’s such a simple recipe that can be made ahead of time & enjoyed for breakfast. I’d recommend making in small jars that you can also enjoy as a snack when that 3pm slump hits.
Chia is bursting with goodness. High in anti-inflammatory Omega 3s, calcium, protein & fibre. It was traditionally used by Aztec warriors. They would keep a small pouch of chia seeds on them that they would consume during battle to keep them energised. It’s the combination of protein, healthy fat & carbohydrate in the chia puddings that keeps me energised for my daily battles 🙂
A few of you asked for the recipe for the Matcha Energy Balls we served on the night, which you’ll find below. This is an easy recipe where all you need is a bowl & spoon. You can also play around with different flavours if matcha’s not your thing.
Any feedback you have from last week is very welcome. We’re planning future workshops & I’d love to know what topics you’d like us to cover. Please leave your suggestions below.
Don’t forget everyone who attended our “Happy Healthy Hormones” workshop at Vision receives 25% off a nutrition consultation until 31 August. If you have a health goal you’d like to reach or a health concern you’d like to address, I would love to help.
