The menopause is a completely natural and normal change of life for women, but it can be challenging to come to terms with.
Earlier this year Jasmine Paris became the first female winner of a 268-mile ultra-marathon. An amazing achievement in itself, made all the more interesting by the fact she stopped several times during the race to express milk for her 14-month old baby. Most of us are a little more moderate with our running goals post-pregnancy (Parkrun is often just fine!), but even so many women who ran and raced consistently before and/or during pregnancy say that running is part of them and they want, perhaps need, to get back to it. It is perfectly possible to combine both.
If you are after a simple, healthy supper that takes very little time to prepare then egg muffins are the best.
Egg muffins are also great for a quick, protein-based breakfast as they can be kept in the fridge overnight, ready to grab and go in the morning.
You can use other veg as an alternative to pepper and peas. Spinach, spring onions and feta is a tasty combination.
