INGREDIANTS:
– 2 Organic eggs
– 100g Organic egg whites
– 2 organic courgettes
– 20 g Parmesan / Pecorino (optional)
– Salt and pepper
– Mint, Parsley, Nutmeg, Curry…. according to your tastes!
– Extra virgin olive oil
– 20g Low-fat spreadable cheese
– 50g Cooked Ham / Turkey Breast or other lean cured meat

METHOD:
Wash the courgettes, trim the ends and grate with a medium-hole grater. If you want to use the courgettes raw, put them in a cotton cloth and squeeze well to remove excess water. Alternatively, they can be sautéed in a pan with a little oil and onion ..
In a bowl, beat the eggs and egg whites with a little salt, pepper and grated Parmesan. Mix well
Pour the grated courgettes into the mixture and season according to your tastes (Mint, Parsley, Nutmeg…). Mix well.
Cook the omelette as you prefer:
IN THE OVEN: pour the mixture into a baking tray covered with parchment paper and bake for 30-40 minutes at 180-200 ° C.
IN A PAN: grease a pan with very little oil and pour the mixture. Halfway through cooking, turn the omelette.
Garnish half of the omelette with the spreadable cheese and lean salami (optional) and fold the omelette back on itself.

Ps: you can also make an FRITTATA ROLL: in this case use a rectangular pan and then roll up the stuffed omelette!
Enjoy your meal!

Exercise of the month

Plank
A fundamental exercise that’s performed in all our class genres, be it; high plank, low plank, side plank etc. which ever version you can’t deny its a must when it comes to core strength and stability.
What muscles are used during a plank? The answer basically is a lot! But the main ones that most people know are our main core muscles such as the rectus abdominis (the six pack), obliques and the transverse abdominis (the inner abdominal muscles). Other muscles which are also engaged are: back, shoulders, chest, arms, glutei, and the legs, literally top to toe!

The benefits of performing planks regularly include:

  • Strengthens the core – a strong core is essential even for performing everyday tasks such as grocery shopping, playing with your kids etc.
  • Lowers the risk of injury – the plank has been shown to activate the core muscles with lower compressive forces. Allowing you to strengthen with less risk.
  • May reduce lower back pain – the abdominal muscles support the lumbar spine (lower back), helping provide structural stability and assist with pelvis movement.
  • Improved performance -since the core is connected to both the upper and lower body, it plays a vital role in movement during athletic activity. In terms of athletic performance, a strong core is associated with increased power output, maximum force, running performance, upper body rotation, and a lower risk of injury.

It may be tough but embrace the plank and you’ll reap the all the benefits!

Helpful Tips

Fitness Plan

Starting a new fitness regime & sticking with it
Starting a new fitness regime can be daunting, which scares and stresses a lot of people out, but it should be a positive and fun experience. The hardest step is always getting started, it’s about making exercise a habit and a lifestyle choice and not just a fad. If you are starting a new fitness regime, firstly, you should be proud you’ve taken that first time to a healthier you.

Here’s a few pointers to help you get started and into the right mindset:

  • Start slowly and build with time – You don’t need to go crazy and train everyday for hours, start with a class a week and go for a beginners level and see how you get on.
  • Get a friend involved – This will make you more accountable to stick with the program, it’ll make it more fun to have company and a little friendly competition never hurt anyone!
  • Ditch the excuses – ‘I’m too old’, ‘I can’t do it’, ‘I don’t have time’, sound familiar? Negativity won’t help, look at the positive ‘I’m excited to learn something new’, ‘I’m going to feel better about myself’.
  • Don’t exceed your expectations – you won’t see results overnight. It takes time for your body to adjust.
  • Don’t compare yourself to others – our bodies all react differently and some people see results sooner than others. It doesn’t mean its not working you just need to give it time.
  • Eat a balanced diet – what’s going into your body is just as important as what your doing on the outside especially if you’re wanting to see real results.
  • Plan ahead – work, family and other commitments can make it hard to have a healthy lifestyle. By planning ahead and preparing yourself makes the struggle just that little bit easier. Meal prep at the weekend to make sure you have healthy lunches and dinners. Put out your workout gear the night before so you literally are ready to go!

The key is consistency!
Sticking with it will help make it a habit and when it becomes a habit you’ll never know how you lived without it before.Quote & Affirmation of the month
