Totally Pukka!

At the moment, I’m trying to drop some weight, but working in an office temptation is constant – what with the overflowing biscuit jar and vending machine.

Herbal teas are a Godsend to me – they are calorie free, 100% natural and come in an innumerable amount of flavours.

I thought I’d tell you about my current fave from Pukka…

Innermost

When you’re training hard, if you can trick yourself into thinking you’re getting something ‘naughty’, while in fact giving your body a boost of the good stuff, then all the better.

That’s why I love protein shakes, because I’m getting a great hit of nutrients but I can also enjoy some delicious flavours – cookies and cream, peanut butter, raspberry, strawberry – the list is endless.

But flavour, texture and nutritional content can vary massively between protein brands, and with so many to choose from, I want to hunt out the best and worst.

So, when I was sent info on the launch of Innermost*, who offer no fewer than four superfood protein blends, I thought I’d give them a try for you guys…

Wash Wizard

We all know how sweaty a long hard training session in the gym can be and we all long for that hot shower at the end of our workout.

But what with trainers, gym kit, a towel, water bottle and protein shaker to name just a few of the things rattling around in our gym bags, however big your muscles are, the thought of carrying about a wash bag on top of that leaves you feeling like you’ve packed for a two-week holiday every time you go to the gym!

And what if the showers are busy and you’ve not got time to waste?

Well now showering has got that much easier, thanks to Wash Wizard. In fact, you don’t even need a shower!
