Melissa and Jasmine Hemsley
Melissa and Jasmine Hemsley are London-based sisters who run a catering business that has healthy, mindful eating at its core. We’re thrilled to be featuring recipes from their first cookbook this month in Get your Glow On 218(page 218).
HONESTLY, HOW FIT ARE YOU? M: “Around an 8 – I feel strong and have lots of energy. I love to start the day with a workout of some kind – a dynamic yoga class or a run around my neighbourhood.” J: “Also an 8. Recently I walked into an aerobics-style body pump class – something I haven’t done for years – and did it with ease. Must have been the great music and free rein to jump about like a loon. But man, my body ached for days!”
HAVE YOU EVER FALLEN FOR A FOOD OR FITNESS FAD? M: “I’ve always been aware of how food made me feel, and I steer clear of fads. But they are very well marketed so I’m not surprised by how many there are.” J: “Soy ‘meat alternative chicken breasts’ about 10 years ago was a low point! Other than that I don’t ‘fall’ for much.”
