You know that feeling when you wake up on a Monday morning and feel ready to go and make some positive choices for a productive day? Today was one of those days for me.
I met up with my friend Amy at the gym for a workout. Honestly, we usually end up doing more chatting than working out so when people came into the studio to start a class, we decided to stick around and try it out. It turned out to be HIIT (high intensity interval training) and absolutely killed us! It was cardio and full body weights – literally every muscle was targeted! So we thought we deserved a guilt free treat.
There’s not that many places where you can get REAL health food, not just limps salads and smoothies full of additives. So we headed down to Alderley Edge to visit The Yard. Everything is made with the finest ingredients and there’s plenty of creative, flavoursome choices of cold-pressed juices, health shots, smoothies, tea’s, meals and snacks.
Amy went for a salmon salad with kale and sweet potato that looked and smelt amazing, along with a cold-pressed juice with beetroot and carrot amongst other ingredients. I just wanted a snack so opted for an avocado and lime chia seed pudding and a raw ‘snickers’ ball. To wake me up, I also ordered a ginger, orange and turmeric shot – it literally blew my head off!!
They also have a shop full of health products and supplements, healing and chakra crystals, insence and Organic beauty products. My kind of shop! I could browse these sort of things for hours on end. I ended up purchasing some wheatgrass that I plan to add to my smoothies and soups.
