I enjoy a pizza and the occasional burger as much as the next girl but eight times out of ten I try to eat healthily. I've done diets before and found them unsustainable, I even did Weight Watchers at one point after I found myself pilling on the pounds after a particularly stressful point in my life. I actually lost a stone doing their diet but found myself achieving a happy weight when I stopped going and just ate better (true story plus how can an avocado be more points than a Kit Kat?) Food is something that's very personal and what works for one person, doesn't work for the next but as boring as it may sound it's better to listen to your body, eat well and have everything in moderation.
That said it's definitely time consuming to be healthy and sometimes I'm guilty of doing a 'quick tea' that had I spent longer preparing could have been something that bit better. Enter Nourish, a genius concept by Dave (a nutritionist), Ben (a personal trainer) and Richard (a chef) who have created a cafe come restaurant where the food is fast but healthy, and I mean healthy, not secretly laden with salt or sugar (I'm looking at you ready meals). Craig and I were kindly invited along a couple of Thursdays ago and I don't think I've ever been so impressed by a year old business. Not only is the food absolutely divine (holla at the avocado wraps and hot food pots) but the pure enthusiasm and life behind the brand is unstoppable. Dave is a real star and super keen to educate anyone who seeks healthy living advise from his wealth of experience as a sports nutritionist.
I'm incredibly proud to have a brand like Nourish in Sheffield (it's about time) and urge you to go and check them out if you're a local, they're bang across from the Peace Gardens and if that's too far they even offer delivery. They're also in the midst of opening a second store in Leeds, you lucky devils!
Have you ever visited Nourish? How do you feel about diets?
