Mums please note that #plank is an advanced core exercise and is not something you should do when you are returning to training post-birth. Even plank on your knees might be too much for you if you have abdominal separation and/or weak pelvic floor. Instead of planks you can start with a bird-dog and then progress. I know many people think this is an easy exercise, however if done correctly it can be quite challenging. Don’t rush, make sure your TA is engaged through the movement and keep your body still (imagine you have full wine glasses on your shoulders and lower back, you do not want to spill the wine ? ?). .
To make this breakfast, you have to soak the chia seeds overnight in coconut milk and vanilla extract. You can easily make a blend of your own grains/pseudo grains for a porridge. I have used brown rice flakes, quinoa flakes, linseed and puffed miller. Cook in almond milk, grated apples and cinnamon powder. Serve with some rice malt syrup, walnuts and fresh apples.
