I have three suggestions today to make the

perfect lunch but before I get into that, I just

want to remind you of the yoga workshop

this Sunday at 11am…


I’ve had some new sign ups but I also have a

couple of people who can’t make it now so

there is still room for you, if you want to join us


We will be going through a yoga class with all

the basic moves, having a break then doing the

workshop, teaching the technique and getting

more practice of these moves


You will have packs to record your notes and

help in putting together a home programme to

follow, another break then a relaxation session


It’s £40 for non members and £20 to members

and you can sign up HERE


Apologies if you looked at the page before and

couldn’t find it, I had the wrong date in – doh!


Ok, so the perfect lunch…


When planning meals, snacks or any food, it’s

always good to go with what you want to

include as opposed to what you shouldn’t be



For example with your lunch, you want to get

a portion of protein (the size of your palm)

and two portions of veggies (the size of two

fistfuls) and a thumb of fat


So it’s really easy to analyse


Have a look at your lunch today, what protein

source do you have? Meat, dairy, pulses, fish

and does the quantity match the size of your



Do you have veggies that make up 2 sizes of

you fists?


Do you have a fat source the size of your



If not, how can you plan for future lunches?


On the members website, (you can sign up

for a free membership) if you haven’t already.


In the lifestyle section you will find a lesson

on packed lunches and in the food section

under the month June you can download 13

packed lunch recipes


Salads, Soups and Stews can be the best

ways to get all three in as two portions of

veg are quite often the hardest part to fill


and when you focus on what you need to

eat there isn’t so much room for the foods

that you don’t want to be eating.


and If you hit all three you should be pretty

full up too


Let me know how you get on!




p.s. the other way to make lunchtime perfect

is to join our lunchtime sessions at the Studio!

They are 30 mins long and include strength

training, yoga and pilates – email me if you

want a two week trial xx
