I've been doing some experimenting with new recipes! I don't do a lot of cooking but since being super interested in what I am eating these days I've been on the search for some healthy quick meals to fit in with my busy life!
Firstly I had ago at making baked egg in an Avocado, I haven't eaten avocado before (on purpose anyway) so I was a worried about how this would be taste but I was pleasantly surprised, it was really nice tasting little dish, perfect for breakfast, only takes 20minutes to cook so it could be in the oven while you finish off getting ready for your day ahead.
My second breakfast I experimented with was overnight oats, I have heard good things about this breakfast dish, so I brought my ingredients and got tucked in. It was a perfect treat to eat first thing in the morning, Again I was so impressed with this dish and will be making it again. It was a great time saver as well, Personally I think it would be a great breakfast for someone who doesn't have time to cook in the mornings!
This afternoon I've made a chicken salad I got off a Facebook page, the page is called "just eat real food" .. It's a brilliant page offering lots of different recipes with healthier options, check it out if you can! Anyway back to my chicken salad, it's a perfect summer meal for a light lunch or dinner. The cutting up on the vegetables is probably the most time consuming part, but trust me with the homemade sauce that you can make along side it is definitely worth the wait. I added a tablespoon of Greek yoghurt to the salad as well, thankfully it didn't ruin the salad, just made it better!
Below I've posted pictures of the three meals mentioned in today's post! If anyone is interested in the recipes please feel free to ask or have a search online, they are pretty easy to hunt down! I'd love to hear your opinions on these meals or if you have any tips on how to make these meals better!
Hey Everyone, Welcome to my blog!
This blog is here to help motivate and inspire myself and everyone else who wants to read this.
I have a love for fitness and food! I am currently on a journey to make myself the best version I can be of me! If I can inspire just one person to improve their life by using this blog, then this blog has fulfilled a purpose.
To start of this blog I thought I would catch you up on my journey?
In 2015 I had my heart broken, I had gained weight during the relationship, I was unhappy, had no confidence, body conscious. I was just a mess. BUT I refused to live like that when the relationship ended, how do I expect people to like or love me when I don't love myself. I wanted a body to be proud of. Firstly I started to change my eating, I did a fair bit of researching into different types of foods, I wanted to know what is good for my body and what is bad for it, I then started to go to the gym at work and exercise, I didn't know a lot about exercise so I was pretty much doing a lot of cardio and few floor exercises here and there. I became quite disheartened as I wasn't seeing results. Luckily enough my sister and mum both work at DW sports centre, at the time they were teaching a young lad to swim, his dad was a personal trainer. that's when it all started.
I plucked up the courage to message this personal trainer asking for costs, he replied with all the information and before I knew it I was booked in for my first session and to be honest I was scared, I hate meeting new people, and being so body conscious and unconfident, i honestly wanted to bail on my first session with him. I dragged myself to our first training session, we spent about 30 minutes having a chat about my goals, what I wanted to achieve. he was so understanding and I loved his enthusiasm, it was contagious! I started to get excited, he believed I could transform myself.
Nearly a year later, Matt and myself are still training together weekly. I am nearly 4 stone lighter than I was in 2015 and finally starting to accept myself, starting to be happy in my own skin. I still have work to do on myself but i am enjoying the journey! I honestly don't think I would of made it this far without Matt, He seriously is the best thing that's happened to me in 2015! I wouldn't swap him for the world.
If you're looking to improve your life then go and do it! Stop doubting yourself. I always believe it is as hard as you make it, take a day at a time. meal prep. do your research. join a gym and get help from a personal trainer. I believe in you!
