A strong midsection is essential for a healthy body.

Strengthening the core helps improve posture, prevent everyday injury and combat chronic back pain, which is all too common if you sit at a desk all day.

Our core muscles play a huge role in our everyday activities, from getting out of bed, to walking down the street or bending over to grab your bag but, most importantly, they literally help you stay upright.

Recipe of the Month

Satay Sweet Potato and Kale Curry

This month’s recipe is a delicious, very speedy satay sweet potato and kale curry. While both are available all year, sweet potatoes and kale are at their very best in March.

Sweet potatoes are a rich source of fibre as well as containing an array of vitamins and minerals including iron, calcium, selenium, manganese, magnesium and copper and they're a good source of most B vitamins and vitamin C. One of the key nutritional benefits of sweet potato is that they're high in an antioxidant known as beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A once consumed.

When compared to white potatoes, sweet potatoes contain more vitamins and antioxidants and, despite their sweeter taste, they also have a lower glycaemic index. This means that they have a lower effect on our blood sugar levels.
Unlike white potatoes, sweet potatoes count towards your five-a-day.

Kale is one of the healthiest vegetables available.

Kale contains fibre, antioxidants, calcium, iron, vitamin C and vitamin K, among others. It also contains an antioxidant known as alpha-lipoic acid - studies suggest that this can help lower blood glucose levels and increase insulin sensitivity.

Kale also contains good levels of potassium, which has been associated with a reduced risk of stroke, protection against loss of muscle mass, preservation of bone mineral density and reduction in the formation of kidney stones, as well as being supportive for lowering blood sugar levels.
Kale is not everyone’s favourite vegetable but, cooked well, it can be quite delicious.
