Breakfast Time with Bee Pollen

Breakfast Time with Bee Pollen

I love having fruit for breakfast, especially when it was the summer I was having it nearly everyday, now we are in autumn I’m still trying to have it before I start turning to the good old faithful porridge (oatmeal)!

So this morning I had my usual fruit, my favourites, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries alongside Rachel’s Organic Vanilla Yogurt, this time I sprinkled some Cacao Powder and Bee Pollen on top.

Bee Pollen is meant to be a great source of proteins, vitamins, minerals and amino acids, so I’ve been trying to incorporate about a teaspoon a day!

To be Vegan or not?

Hello everyone, I haven’t posted for a long time and I guess the reason is simply because I was trying to work out what I wanted, whether I wanted to continue labelling myself as Vegan or not. I later decided that labelling myself was not going to help at all, for my PCOS I am limited in a lot of things anyway so why should I further limit myself from having the occasional yoghurt, egg or piece of fish. 

I eat meat every other day but the hubby and I also have a meatless week once a month where we have pasta and cheeses etc! I just want to point out that I have not taken this decision lightly to eat without a label, I had started eating vegan for health and weight reasons in the first place, I do believe that in my later years I probably will become vegan when I can source all the right foods I need!

So a quick low down on my weight loss journey, I am very happy and the weight is slowly coming off, I did have a bit of a panic last night as I felt I have well and truly stopped losing weight but I’m fighting through it!

Hope you all have a wonderful day X

Green With Envy Smoothie.

Green With Envy Smoothie.
Deliciously nutritious!
Deliciously nutritious!

This is my morning boost smoothie that promises to deliver energy and a wake up call to those taste buds, to really start the day with a pow! I love that it tasted delicately sweet with a hint of lime, which made for a lovely after taste which was like a tangy explosion! Very refreshing and the consistency would be likened to a juice, so a perfect companion during a workout or even to have alongside oats with breakfast!

Ingredients-

  • 1/2 Juice of a Lime- You could do more if you like!
  • Juice of 1 Large Orange.
  • 1 Banana- Peeled.
  • 4 Plums- Peeled and pitted.
  • 1/2 Cup tightly packed spinach.
  • 3 Medium sized Ice Cubes.
