21 Autumn Vegetables to help Weight Loss

My husband once had the idea of opening a fruit and vegetable shop called “Little Packets Of Goodness”. Sadly the idea never came to fruition but I love the name! (Excuse the pun!)

Despite all the confusing, controversial nutritional advice out there, there is one thing that (pretty much) everyone agrees on. Vegetables are good for us!

Vegetables Contain Fibre That is Good for Us

They are packed with fibre that does more than just keep us regular. A recent “meta analysis” study from New Zealand stated that eating more than 30g of fibre a day reduces “all cause mortality”. (Dying from anything.)

For more details of the study, check out Dr Orlena’s Fit and Fabulous podcast, “How to Eat 30g of Fibre a Day.

Vegetables are packed with vitamins and antioxidants. Colourful vegetables have antioxidants called “phytonutritients”. (Hence why people talk about “eating a rainbow”.)

Vegetables are also the mainstay of...

My motto in life is “lots of vegetables!”. Vegetables are the cornerstone of the Mediterranean Style Diet. I want lots of vegetables but I also want quick and easy.

This recipe is super easy!

Butternut Squash is Versatile

You can use butternut as a side dish, as a main feature for lunch. Or as a stepping stone to another meal. (E.g. turn it into an easy soup or in a risotto.) Having cooked vegetables to hand is always super useful when you want to create a quick meal.

Ingredients of Baked Butternut Squash with Sage

  • One butternut squash sliced
  • Sage

I always cook with extra virgin olive oil after chatting to Professor Miguel Angel Martinez who told me all about the health benefits of olive oil.

Bespoke Retreat with Dr Orlena, Coast Brava

A retreat is a fantastic way to combine relaxation, fun and a purpose.  I offer personal retreats in my stunning home town of Palafrugell on the Costa Brava in Spain.

You can enjoy the magnificent surroundings whilst we work together on your personal goal. 

What is a Retreat?

A holiday with purpose!

Think of having your own personal guide to help you.

Before the retreat, we decide on your goal. (For example, starting your weight loss journey, creating your ideal life.)

Together we decide what activities you want to do. (Examples of activities: coastal walking, sea swimming, kayaking, relaxing, yoga, tai chi, cycling.)

I create your ideal retreat that combines coaching, learning and your activities.

Here’s an example.

Alexis’s 2 Day Retreat

Alexis is a client who has been working with me for several months. She started out wanting to lose weight. Once she had achieved her first weight goal, she wanted to create her ideal life.

Baked Red Cabbage with Blackberries Recipe

Red cabbage reminds me of Christmas. My mum always makes red cabbage with blackcurrant fruit syrup. I’ve adapted her recipe to make it healthier and easier. And to take advantage of the seasonal blackberries we’ve picked.

A simple dish made out of red cabbage and blackberries #healthymeal #healthyfood #healthyrecipe #redcabbage #redcabbagerecipes #bakedredcabbage #redcabbageblackberries

Health Benefits of Red Cabbage

I love the saying “all vegetables are superfoods”. Red cabbage is no exception. It’s full of fibre to help your microbiome and keep you regular. It’s also packed full of antioxidants and “phytonutrients” (the colourful nutrients that we take advantage of when we “eat a rainbow”.)

Health Benefits of Blackberries

Berries are one of the most healthy fruits as they’re high in fibre and low in sugar. And delicious!

You get bonus plant saving points for picking them from the hedgerow.
