Whether it’s first thing in the morning or mid-afternoon, sometimes you need a healthy, energy-filled snack to give you that boost. The key to healthy snacking is to choose foods with a combination of complex carbohydrates, protein, healthy fats and plenty of fibre and these energy balls provide just that!
✨Makes 10 balls ✨
16 dried apricots
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tbsp coconut oil
1. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
2. Place apricots, walnuts and cashews into a food processor and blend until well combined. Add the coconut oil, ground ginger and desiccated coconut and blend again until a dough begins to form. If the mixture feels dry, try add little more coconut oil. The mixture should be a little sticky.
3. Using your hands, make snack sized balls.
4. Roll the balls in the desiccated coconut and place on a prepared tray.
5. Store them in an air tight container in the fridge, ready for snacking!

𝗖𝗵𝗿𝗼𝗻𝗼𝗻𝘂𝘁𝗿𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 – does it matter 𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘯 I eat?
“Breakfast like a king, lunch like a queen and dinner like a pauper.” You are likely to have heard of that saying however how true is it actually?
Within our bodies lies a 24- hour internal clock. Known as your sleep-wake cycle, its controlled by your pituitary gland and is what tells you you’re sleepy. If you get enough sleep, you may notice that you have slight dips in energy from 1 – 3 pm and then again in the morning from 2 am to 4 am. Interestingly some research also suggests that this internal clock also affects when our body is best primed to digest.
The research suggests that your body will function best if you eat more earlier in the day. That said, don't beat yourself up if your lifestyle doesn't bode well for eating dinner early — maximizing the length of your overnight "fast" appears to have protective benefits too, even though more research on humans is needed.
If you are a late-night dinner – it is what you eat that really matters. Keep it light and easily digestible.

Pound for pound, women have the same energy requirement as men however new research shows that many active women overwhelmingly miss that mark and don’t eat enough.

Rape is in season in Zambia right now. It is a delicious, nutritious, versatile dark leafy green, similar to kale. It is rich in folate, vitamin D and a great source of fibre.
For this recipe if you live in the U.K. you can use Kale, if you’re in Italy you can use Cime di Rapa.
Green leafy veg are also a great source of iron - however not the most absorbable form for the body. This soup is great as the addition of lemon means that the iron in the rape becomes more “available” to the body.
🍵𝗦𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗥𝗮𝗽𝗲 𝗦𝗼𝘂𝗽 🍵
1 big bunch of rape (kale, or cime di rapa)
2 tbsp of olive oil
4 slices of bacon sliced
1 medium onion diced
3 garlic cloves (optional)
15g of parsley
480ml of chicken stock
120ml of Greek yoghurt (plus extra for garnish)
Squeeze of lemon juice
1. Heat the olive oil in a large pan. Add the onion and cook for 3mins, and add the garlic and cook until soft.
2. Add the bacon and cook until the fat is rendered.
3. Add the rape and parsley and cook until they have wilted down.
4. Add 2 cups of stock to start, (add more where needed) and bring to the boil.
5. Lower the heat and simmer for 8 mins. Transfer to a blender and purée until smooth.
6. Return to the pot and add more stock. Stir in the green yoghurt and the squeeze of lemon. Adjust seasoning to taste.
