Keeping fit at home – 7 must own pieces of training equipment

Working out and trying to stay fit, doesn't need to be an expensive hobby.  Yes, eating right and training regularly will play a big part in helping you get into shape and stay fit, but it doesn't mean you need to break the bank with gym memberships and expensive foods to achieve this.  You can manage to make the first steps to getting (and staying) fit right from your own home.  Eating the right food can help you prepare and recover from training sessions, but today in the Linwoods blog, we are going to look at gym equipment that can help you get fit in the home.  Below, we list 7 of our favourite pieces of equipment, and the great thing about these is that they are all easy to use.

Linwoods recipe challenge – Delicious Dahl with Chia Seeds

Today in the Linwoods blog, we're going to take you through another step by step guide to making one of our tasty Linwoods recipes.  This time, we're looking at something that's a little bit spicy; a vegetarian dish packed full of flavour and the taste of India – we're talking about our delicious dahl.  There are many ways to create a great dahl dish, with some cooks using lentils.  We are using yellow split peas to make our tasty dahl, a homely dish that can be enjoyed for lunch or dinner, or cooked again when you are looking for a healthy snack during the day.  If you aren't a fan of split peas, chick peas or mixed beans can be used as an alternative.  Below, we take you through the processes of making this comforting dish, so, let's get started.

3 Tips to preparing and recovering from a training session

We recently looked at 4 benefits to eating seeds when training and working out but what you eat is just part of the preparation and recovery process that we all go through when training.  For athletes and those of us looking to get fit, our diet is one of the most important parts of the whole training process.  It isn’t alone though and there are a number of things that you need to consider when getting your body ready for a workout, a tough training session, a match or even a long distance run or cycle.

4 Benefits of eating seeds when training and working out

Whether you’re a full time athlete or simply enjoy (or even don’t enjoy) working out and training on a regular basis, be sure to add some seeds to your routine in 2014.  Seeds are continuing to grow in popularity with chia seeds and flax seed becoming particularly popular among athletes.  Seeds (and nuts) can be a great alternative to your normal snack this year, so rather than reaching for a packet of crisps or bar of chocolate to get a quick energy boost, add some seeds to a natural yoghurt and enjoys the great benefits of seeds to your body.  

Why protein is good for you when exercising

Many of us do not get enough physical activity on a weekly basis.  Whether it’s due to the darker nights and colder weather, your job or looking after the kids, it’s often easier to find excuses not to train than it is to find reasons to get started. Linwoods shelled hemp seeds are a great source of protein & also provide your body with iron and magnesium which also helps to aid your recovery from exercising.
