Who doesn't LOVE pizza (if you don't, I'm afraid we can't be friends ).
So what if you are on a fat loss plan, can you still eat pizza? YES
OK, so what about if you want to be gluten free and vegan, can you eat pizza? YES
I don't know about you, but the shop bought GF, Vegan pizzas are not only hard to come by, but not awful nice. I had a great experience at Pizza Express (although they were a tad tight on the "cheese").
The simple answer is create your own. I took a recipe from my Joe Wicks #90dayveggieplan and gave it a gluten free and vegan makeover that I'm going to share with you right now!!
35g+ (see notes) gluten free self raising flour
35g gram flour (chickpea flour)
65g of non dairy yoghurt - I used KoKo
1/4 tsp baking powder
Pinch salt (I added a few sneaky chilli flakes too)
1 dsp tomato puree
45g vegan cheese (your choice - I used the grated mozzarella type)
Toppings of your choice - I used antipasti...
I was controlled by my mind from a very early age. By the time I was 11 or 12 I was aware that I didn't fit it. Soon that judgement became that I was too ugly and fat to fit in.
Over the years, that talk penetrated every area of my life and little did I know, that the reality that I found myself living, was created from that negativity. After suffering with over 5 years of severe post natal depression, I noticed an immediate shift when I had the courage to leave my relationship and choose to be a single mother to my two daughters.
For the first time in what felt like an eternity, I could breathe. I remember touching my face as I smiled because, this time, I felt the smile in my body. It wasn't a mask. My circumstances were far from great but the fact that I'd made a choice that served by sanity was like being lifted high on top of a wave, where I could see new choices. New beginnings. And hope. I saw and felt hope.
But that was my...
I love to sleep. I've tried all kinds of different routines in the past. At one point I even bought in to the "getting up at 4am" mentality. It didn't work for me. It meant I had to go to bed super early so I missed out on time with my family. I absolutely had to have a "nana nap" every day or I Just felt awful.
In the end, you know what I did? I decided to find a way that works for ME and wish all the 4am'ers and happy life.
It's been proven over and over, that sleep counts when it comes to the way you feel and function. The suggestion is a 7-9 hours of QUALITY sleep every night. Now I'm not going in to sleep cycles and circadian rhythms here.. I just want to keep it simple. So let me give you a few tips to help you get better sleep so that you have bring the energy you need every day to chase your dreams!
Do you have kids? If you do, I'm sure you had them in a routine. I remember when I had my first, I had NO idea what I was doing....
This is a really simple recipe and one that I've adapted ever so slightly from Joe Wickes' 90 Day Veggie Plan that I'm currently on (and loving it).
Soups are great for so many reasons. They tend to be quick to knock up (especially if you have an Instapot), helps toward your 5 a day and they are really filling so great if you are on a health plan.
2 tsp vegan butter
2 carrot (pref organic) washed and finally chopped
2 stick celery - as above
2 cloves garlic - crushed or finely sliced
2 tsp (or to taste) of finely chopped fresh rosemary. You can substitute dried if you like.. start with 1 tsp and add depending on your taste

I'm not writing this article in an expert capacity but rather to provide some resources that will help you make up your own mind about using a foam roller.
It's basically a tube, made of compressed foam/plastic that is used to help release muscle tightness, soreness and inflammation and may increase flexibility as the muscles regain flexibility. In other words, it helps you perform self massage!
As with everything, if we don't know how to do something, we can risk doing more harm than good. So in this article I just want to share some useful resources to help you make the decision if a. the practice if for you b. if it is, how do you do it property.
If you've ever used a roller (or had a good sports massage), you know that it can be SUPER painful. Why is that? Should it be that way? These articles will explain more for you..
Every New Year’s, we come up with our to-do lists, resolutions, bucket lists, and strategic plans — all the stuff we want to have, get, accomplish, and experience outside of ourselves. And here’s the heart of it all: All of those aspirations are being driven by an innate desire to feel a certain way.
So what if this year, we get clear on how we actually want to feel within ourselves, and then we design our to-do lists, set our goals, and make our resolutions?
How do you want to feel when you wake up on January 1st?
How do you want to feel when you look at your schedule for the week?
When you get dressed in the morning?
When you walk through the door of your studio or your office?
When you pick up the phone?
When you cash the check, accept the award, finish your masterpiece, make the sale, or fall in love?
The Desire Map is an entire curriculum and experience, designed to help you access (perhaps for the first time), the feelings that underlay each one of...
I know it sounds harsh, but I've done enough work on this myself, and coached enough business women, to believe this is 100% true.
Two books really helped transform my mindset around money at that was Napolean Hill's "Think and Grow Rich" and Barbara Stanny's book, "Over Coming Under Earning".
After reading those, I became a Sacred Money Archetype coach and dived in to re-writing my own money story and committing to helping as many women as I could to do the same.
I hear you ask. Well, your soul's purpose is to live a life on and of purpose and to experience it's fullest expansion and expression.
It can't do that if it's constantly being told "I can't afford it".
Besides which, I'm pretty sure that when you set up in business, you didn't have the goal to under earn and over work?
I became a coach in SMA at least 3 years ago and it was such an incredible insight to my own beliefs, fears and motivations...
We are a soul having a human experience. I am sure you have heard that before? But how much do you live by the truth?
Regardless of your beliefs around religion and creation, we know that we have been created in the likeness of "something". Whether it is a God or a Creative Energy.. the fact is, that our likeness means that we contain the same magic. We are born as Creators.
Sadly, most of us are programmed throughout our childhood to "follow the crowd". To go to school; get qualified; get a job (maybe one you like if you're lucky); get married and have a family; retire and have a few good years and then "poooof" off we pop from this planet.
People like you, passionate and purpose soulpreneurs, are part of a spiritual and energetic revolution who are here to create a new story for the world.
And so that you can do that with more grace, ease and authenticity, it's essential...
