Have you been making any #smallchanges to your life since my last post on the matter, particularly addressing how to make a series of little decisions which will improve health and wellbeing. As part of my collaboration with Optiwell, I met with Laura Clark, Registered Dietitian and Sports Nutritionist and founder of LEC Nutrition to discuss #smallchanges which I can make to make my lifestyle healthier, particularly after baby 2 is born in a few weeks.

Optiwell Cowshed evening: making Optiwell berrry smoothiesThe evening was held at the Cowshed Spa in Shoreditch House, and it was a lovely evening spent catching up with some other blogging pals, indulging in canapés, blending Optiwell smoothies (surprisingly delicious – I am not sure I would usually describe myself as a smoothie lover, but Optiwell blended with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and a tiny bit of banana was delicious) and, of course, getting a mani/pedi from the Cowshed team. I do love a Cowshed treatment and Cowshed product, and regularly visit the spa and buy various things including moisturiser and showergel. I don’t always match my toes to the furniture, but I’ve been rather drawn to this shade of eau-de-nil recently…(see my recent nursery updates)… and I was really pleased with the outcome.

Optiwell Cowshed evening: vintage Sex and the CityThe #smallchanges I discussed with Laura were all around tactics for dealing with the new baby sleepless fug, particularly quick and easy food that I will be able to eat with one hand, that won’t just be empty calories. It was a really helpful discussion and I’ve already started making some of the changes including adding seeds to my morning porridge.

If you’re interested, here’s a short film from the evening…

I rounded the evening off with a berry yogurt cheesecake which was also rather tasty and super easy to make and looked extremely tempting all lined up on the table together.
