Healthy Lemon and Poppy Seed Muffins

  Today I, Krystie Millward of Results Personal Training, bring you Healthy Lemon and Poppy Seed Muffins. Since lemons are in full swing at the moment, what better than using them in a delicious muffin recipe. Please note when using coconut flour, you need to work quickly as it absorbs moisture rapidly. The final batter will be quite thick but turns out fine when cooked 🙂 Enjoy. Ingredients: 1/2 cup Coconut Flour 1/4 cup Maple Syrup 6 Free Range Eggs 1/2 cup Butter melted 1/2 Tbsp Vanilla Extract 1/2 tsp Sea Salt 1/4 tsp Baking Soda 1 Lemon, zest and juice 1 Tbsp Poppy Seeds Method:...

Healthy Nachos

  Nachos is one of my favourite meals with the combo of hot flavoursome meat with cold guacomole and sour cream.  Unfortunately it is not the same without a crispy chip involved, and although corn tortilla chips are tasty, they have loads of preservatives and colours a healthy body will not won't to consume too often!

Although in the picture my chips didn't turn out as crispy as I would have liked (in Paul's opinion - 'not at all') due to getting home after 8pm from Fitness Camp then...
