Neema Savvides | Fertility Nutrition

I’ve been pretty slack on the breakfast front lately, and have been alternating between a protein smoothie and yoghurt and granola. Both are delicious and high in protein but well, it was all getting a bit samey. Overnight oats are such a favourite of mine as I can chuck it all together the night before and… Read more »

Raspberry overnight oats

I am LOVING overnight oats at the moment.  They just make the easiest and most convenient brekkie.

This dish came about rather randomly, as it’s not… Read more »

My go-to protein smoothie is usually chocolate based, so making this raspberry based one was a welcomed change. This is a great post workout smoothie as the banana (carbohydrate) helps the body to absorb the protein powder more efficiently.
