Courgetti Bolognese

Courgetti Bolognese Health Inspirations

Using spiralized vegetables in meals certainly isn’t a new invention, but something I’ve not shared enough on this blog. In England spiralized courgette and squash are readily available in most stores, but here in Austria you’ll find no such thing. Luckily, with the right equipment spiralizing vegetables is less of a chore than it sounds.

My life

It’s been a while….

October 30, 2016

Hi everyone!

It’s been a while, I know. But over the past few months life’s been crazy and so this blog just wasn’t my main focus anymore. After 6 years living in England I’ve moved to Austria. A move I made for a new job. It’s an exciting change, but after my first month in Austria there’s already so much I miss about living in the UK and I can’t wait to go back and visit soon.

Veggie Sandwich | Health Inspirations

The recipe I’m sharing today was a very spontaneous afternoon creation. The weather was so beautiful today that I completely lost track of time and didn’t make it to the grocery store before it shut. Luckily I had a few things in the fridge that I could use, so I made this really delicious veggie sandwich with a side of kale salad. Continue Reading…

Spring Beauty Faves | Health Inspirations

With Spring now officially upon us, it is about time I do another beauty favorites update. Seeing as the temperatures are somehow still stuck in the middle of Winter, I haven’t given my skincare and makeup routine a huge overhaul. I usually switch to lighter creams and tinted moisturizes in the warmer months, but for now I’m still really happy with what I’ve got going.

Massaged Kale Salad | Health Inspirations

I recently read an article that stated that kale was no longer a ‘trend’ food. Whilst I’m always up for trying new foods, I will always love kale, no matter what no matter what its current superfood status. I don’t think I have ever shared a recipe for massaged kale salad, which is a shocker, seeing as I eat this all the time. It’s a great ‘make ahead’ salad for work and can be mixed with lots of grains and vegetables. Today I’m sharing a basic version of a recipe that can be adapted in an endless number of ways.

Once a year my family gets together for a week of skiing in Saalbach, Austria. Saalbach is the largest ski resort in Austria with over 270km of slopes. We have been going to there for the past 12 years or so and have yet not had a chance to try every slope because there is so much to discover. This year we went for a week in mid-February. The weather wasn’t as good as it could have been with a few foggy and snowy days, but we also a couple of really nice sunny and warm days. We had a lovely time, filled with lots of skiing, yummy food, visits to the gym and spa. Below are a few of my favorite pictures from the trip. Hope you enjoy! Continue Reading…

Shrove Tuesday aka Pancake Tuesday is just around the corner. Funnily enough, this was never a day I looked forward to. In Austria it is typically celebrated by dressing up (think kids carnival dress up) and I just never liked it. Then I moved to England and found out that on Shrove Tuesday, it is perfectly acceptable to eat pancakes for dinner…I was immediately up for it!

After graduating from University and starting full-time employment I quickly realized that the two main components of my wardrobe consisted of office work wear and workout gear. I no longer have real use for those comfy jeans and slouchy tshirts that I used to wear all the time when hanging around the house. Now, during the week I wear my office outfits and I spend most of my weekends in gym wear. Continue Reading…
