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!
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!
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.
Do all the preparation of the fruit before you start and then add banana, plums, spinach and juices to the blender, I use a Nutri Bullet blender and blend until you cant see the spinach anymore!
This was really delicious, I minted the peas by using mint sauce but next time I will be making them by using mint leaves or even dried mint herb! I used a mixture of sweet and white potato, it was super filling and I made way too much!
I roasted the potato’s in lemon juice and straight into the oven for 35 mins on a medium through to high heat, for the peas I used frozen and blitzed them in the microwave then smothered them in a tablespoon of mint sauce. Mmm!
