Mango Pumpkin Smoothie Bowl
If there’s one thing I enjoy, it’s sweet foods — and just because I eat to maximise the benefits of my PWR training doesn’t mean I have to sacrifice these treats!
This breakfast smoothie bowl contains mango and pumpkin, which might seem like an odd combination — but wait until you try it!
One of the reasons why this recipe is so good is that it’s really versatile. You can switch out the pumpkin for sweet potato or carrot, and if you don’t have fresh mango, you can use frozen or substitute with berries.

Making healthy choices to care for your health is within your power. By doing this, by treating your body with love, you can learn to truly love yourself.
When these decisions become a priority and you establish daily practices to support your own wellbeing, and to express gratitude for your body. It just takes one small change at a time, and over time, these small changes add up so that you will feel completely empowered.
You can make healthy food choices that help you to feel your best.
Whenever you are changing a habit, it’s so important to start small. One thing I found useful was to make sure I always have healthy snacks on hand. This means that when I feel hungry, I’m not relying on a vending machine or fast food.
If you need more inspiration for quick breakfast, lunch or dinner ideas, I regularly share my food diary on Instagram. Most of the food I prepare can be assembled in about half an hour and doesn’t require a complicated recipe!
Your health is so important, and you deserve to be in good health — one way to get started is to make healthy food choices.
