Zumba 'Burns More Calories And Makes You Fitter Than Salsa' (But Both Will Make You Happy)

by +Rachel Moss 

With Zumba classes now available in gyms and town halls across 180 countries, there's no denying the workout has become something of a worldwide phenomenon.

And its reign as the go-to dance-fitness class doesn't look set to end any time soon.

New research suggests Zumba may be even better for our health than the traditional Latin American dance styles it takes its inspiration from.

The study, conducted by Kingston University and the University of the West of Scotland, suggests Zumba is more effective than salsa in helping inactive women up their fitness.

I have one of the best moms in the world. I mean, everybody says that about their mother - and I don't doubt for a second that every single maternal figure out there is beyond worthy of adoration - but looking back at what mine has put up with over the last...

Strawberry Meringue Tartlets #SundaySupper
One of my favourite things about teaching cooking to a gang of (relatively) young children is that they are enthralled by the aspect of "danger" in a dish, even if nothing truly ominous is present. All it takes is for me to mention that I am "letting them" ...

Working on reports late at night means I fall victim to the midnight snack attacks - that lone cup of lukewarm coffee just isn't cutting it anymore and there isn't enough hunger for anything substantial , just snack-worthy. When feelings like this hit me, i...

Bringing Good Taste to Healthier Food
Introduction
I started my "working life" as a holistic and allopathic nutritional consultant with a love of cooking. Teaching the value of wholesome meal choices to families became close to my heart after I battled a long history of struggles with weight and health, and the passion for teaching led me into where I am now. My blog, which focuses on "bringing good taste to healthier food" through creative use of whole grains, fresh produce and acknowledging the importance of the occasional treat, also features a wealth of "specialty diet" friendly recipes for gluten-, egg-, dairy- and sugar- tree nut-free items that everyone can enjoy without alienating those who need them.

Overall, I want to bring back the desire for good quality, homemade, (mostly) healthy food into the hearts and kitchens of families so that the next generation will be less box-reliant than mine. I firmly believe that any “homemade” food, even when labelled as "naughty", is a more wholesome treat than pre-packaged, cookie-cutter junk. With the knowledge of good food (and how to cook good food) as a base, a healthy lifestyle can follow, and then anything is possible!

Today, my love for teaching is branching out even further - I'm in Montessori training to solidify my love for the system and working with children and families!
