WELCOMING A SWEET NEW ADDITION-BELLA 

 

Ally's Kitchen Stories is back after a well earned break baking a scrummy bebe called Bella who is the newest member in the kitchen now. We have had great fun cooking together, taste testing and exploring all sorts of delicious and nutritious recipes. I have learnt that you should never try to serve your bebe a meal you wouldn’t eat yourself. I believe that we as parents have a duty to our bebe's, to educate them around nutrition and ensure they have a positive relationship with food. Bebe's deserve the best nutrition, the freshest ingredients, and a variety of tastes and textures to help them grow, learn and play. Nourish your baby, Nourish yourself. 

 

 

 

 

ALLY'S KITCHEN STORIES WORKING WITH SHORE PROJECTS WATCHES

 

If you haven't already checked these guys out... do it now now

Shore Projects

 

They have an awesome new watch (im wearing it in the shot) called 'The Salcombe' watch. Ya ha, named after our awesome little seaside town in South Devon. 

 

I approached Shore Projects as I love their watches and wanted to see if they were interested in my recipes added to their look book and quarterly magazine. They said YES. In return I got a snazzy 'Salcombe Watch'. My mission is to take shots of the watch locally in Salcombe and send seasonal recipes. No problemo!!! Watch this space.

LOCAL GOODIES

 

Always try to make your way to local markets and be in tune with what’s in season.         

There are plenty across our beautiful island. Be conscious of how many packaged products you use in a week. For example, instead of buying that soup in a tin try 

making it yourself. Your taste buds and body will thank you.

A SLEEPY STORY

 

Sleep is the most important thing (more important than diet and exercise) when it comes to establishing a healthy life. 

 

A good night’s sleep will make us feel more active and alert on the following day. Energy levels after a good sleep are higher, your mental awareness is more acute and you are more likely to smile more. A restful sleep session not only feels great, but it increases our chances for another good night’s sleep next time we go to bed.

 

Sleep is the time for our body to repair any damage caused by stress, ultraviolet rays and other harmful exposures. During sleep, cells produce more protein which is used in repairing damaged cells. Muscle injuries and other trauma also heal faster during sleep.

 

So... here's a challenge if your not getting enough zzzz. Make sure you have zero electronics in the room (Detox from electronics in the evenings after a certain time) have a good stretch before getting ready for bed, try to calm your brain from any negative thoughts, worries or pressures you might have and tell yourself everything is A ok! Once your full of happy thoughts, let your body snooze away! Wake up naturally when your body is ready as you have had enough sleep. Forcing yourself to wake up is not a good sign. You will start to feel the sense of increased energy. 

 

This is what I found out: People who sleep for less than seven hours per night are more likely to be overweight or obese. Lack of sleep affects the levels of ghrelin and leptin, the hormones responsible for regulating our appetite.

 

So, to put it simply, if you want to stay in shape, get more sleep!

 

P.S Smile before you sleep and when you wake up! Its a beautiful feeling.
