4 new 7am classes. Perfect for pre-work workout.

I know it’s dark and the duvet is warm…..but a morning workout not only leaves the rest of the day free, it has a better metabolic burn. You’ve fasted all night and a fasted cardio session really scrapes the fat out of the arteries.

These pay as you go classes are ideal. Spin is 45 mins, Metafit 30 mins.

Monday 7am Spin Gosforth Academy £4

Tuesday 7am Spin Gosforth Academy £4

Thursday 7am Spin Gosforth Academy £4

Low sugar, low carb breakfast pancakes

Ingredients for quick low carb pancakesSuper quick recipe for a breakfast alternative to high sugar, insulin spiking cereal. Blend 3 egg whites (or 125ml of two chicks egg whites), 1 banana and a scoop of vanilla protein powder. Heat a frying pan with vegetable oil to a medium heat. Add half the mixture. Flip up the sides with a spatula to prevent the pancake burning. Flip over after about 2 minutes. These are great as an on-the-go breakfast. I make a batch, refrigerate them and vary my toppings. For savoury, add bacon, spinach leaves and a squirt of sugar free maple syrup. Or try full fat Greek yogurt and cherries. Cherries are great for their cancer preventive compounds and they help reduce post exercise pain.
