I am dreaming of Spring! Of maxi dresses, sunny afternoons, pub lunches and cute cropped tops. I can’t wait to not be cold! I don’t know about you but as March approaches my social calendar starts filling up pretty quickly. January and February is all work work work and then in the lead up to Summer, people start coming out to play right!
Breakfast has always been my favourite meal, it’s the first thing I think about when I wake up and possibly sometimes the last thing I think about before I go to sleep, sorry Jamie, I clearly love breakfast more than you.
I’m sure you hear all the time that breakfast is the most important meal of the day but why!? See below for 5 reasons why and then make sure you check out my video this week to follow what I had for breakfast Monday to Friday! I like to have something different pretty much every day, I love variety but if you find a breakfast that works for you and makes you feel fabulous then stick with that. The main thing is that you enjoy your healthy nourishing morning meal! It should set you up for a positive healthy day ahead!
Also listen to your body in the morning, sometimes I prepare my breakfast the night before and then in the morning I don’t fancy it at all so I make something else. If a meal plan you’re following is telling you to have salmon and greens for breakfast and it’s 6am, pouring with rain and all you want is a nice warming bowl of porridge then have the warming bowl of porridge…
This salad is a combo of warm and cold veggies with a nutritious dressing and sprinkle of sunflower seeds. It’s a nice option if you want something light and nutritious but also warming and filling so perfect if you know your going out for a big dinner or christmas party. You could have this salad on its own, with some rye/wholegrain bread or as a side to some fish or chicken! I’ve been enjoying this recently for my lunch and it’s really satisfying plus my dressing will make you LOVE kale!
Today I am grateful! I love my healthy lifestyle and am so grateful for the nutritious and delicious foods that are available to me. I am so grateful that I actually enjoy making fresh food. When asked whether I feel like I’m ‘missing out’ on eating dominoes pizza or cream cakes or McDonalds as examples, I honestly don’t get it. What do you mean missing out! I don’t enjoy or want those foods. I don’t crave them or feel the need to have them as a ‘treat’. I’m perfectly happy to miss out on feeling like crap, tired, getting bad skin, feeling bloated and unsatisfied. When you start eating healthy nourishing foods your body stops craving all that bad stodge and I 100% do not feel like I restrict myself in anyway. I eat what I love and what I want all the time and I am so grateful that what I want and love most of the time is amazingly healthy yummy food. So for a little inspiration or just for a nose here’s what I ate in day…
