Banana bread baked oatmeal with a drizzle of @rxbar
chocolate peanut butter, half an apple, and 🥓. Shaping up to be a nice little morning- even though we were temporarily out of coffee when I woke up (I found more!). 🤦♀️ Do you guys want the oatmeal recipe? It’s on my list of recipes to add to the blog (and only sweetened with 🍌).
When you stop or for a sneaky McDonald’s in between clients 🙅🏽♀️ #foodfuel
Calorie counting is a controversial one!! However, for me it has worked really well!!! So I believe if it’s done right then it can be really positive!!! WHY shout the critics, well because it’s all about WHAT you eat!!! On 1400 calories I can eat plenty of lovely food that keeps me full for the day. Yes sometimes I get hungry between meals. HOWEVER no more hungry than I was when I ate a much higher calorie diet!! Yesterday is a prime example of why calorie counting can be positive. It was our Christmas fuddle so I tucked into some of the delights which was great!!
When I logged my calories for the day I was about 500 calories over my usual, with me having eaten over my usual daily calories simply during the fuddle!! After all that energy I put in my body, you would have thought I was bouncing off the walls all night - WRONG ... I was knackered by 6pm!!! 🤨🤨
Furthermore, I didn’t actually eat much more volume than I normally would have in a main meal with a pudding. 🤔🤔
The point here is that counting calories means I am simply more mindful of what I eat, which in turn means I eat a much healthier diet which fuels my body more consistently for longer!!

⚠️NOTE THIS: Your body is in a PRIME state to suck up nutrients after a workout⚠️
🏋️♀️After you’ve emptied all the gas in your tank, it’s time to refuel and focus on getting the following into your system:
💧FLUIDS: Plain water is always best, but you can always mix it with 100% fruit juice to help replenish glycogen levels and get some much needed potassium into your system (especially if you’ve had a particularly gruelling, sweaty workout)
🥔CARBOHYDRATES: This is the main energy source for your muscles during a workout, so naturally, you’re going to need to replace them so that you have gas in the tank for your next workout.
✅This is also the time when your body is the most insulin sensitive, meaning that your body will have a MUCH easier time managing blood sugar levels despite eating more carbs. This is super important if you want to manage hunger and keep your body fat levels in check
🍳PROTEIN: This will help repair and GROW your muscles… and more muscle means FASTER metabolism 🔥 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✅Guidelines say eating about 30g of protein and 30-35g of carbs after your workout should do the trick, but ultimately, everyone is different. Listen to you body and thank it for making it through another workout by giving it what it needs afterwards 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A little parmesan snack with some crabapple and red chilli jelly 🧀🌶 _____________________________
I was suppose to be making a little side dish for the spaghetti bolognese tonight.... but I may of accidentally eaten the pre dinner 🙊
These are so yummy as a snack or a side dish to a pasta dinner, and so simple. Sprinkle some parmesan in grease proof paper, I add a little thyme and rosemary, and bake on gas mark 5 for 5-8 mins. Keep and eye to them, as they start to bubble and turn a little golden they’re done 😋
Ok, you guys, this is actually way harder than I thought it would be to post. You see, the photo on the left is the kind of picture that I used to hide... the kind of picture that would pop up on Facebook, and I’d rush to delete from my feed. I used to hate having people take my picture. I’d almost always insist on taking a selfie because you can bet that I knew how to hold my phone at the perfect angle to get the perfect flattering shot. 🤳 But here we go. One year in between these photos and approximately twenty-five pounds lost. I’m so excited for the #januarywhole30
and more progress in 2019. #transformationtuesday
It seems as though this season of my life revolves around alarm clock reminders. It’s just the type of structure I need right now! Alarms to wake up, alarms to get out the door on time, alarm to take my vitamins, alarm to (make sure your kids are NOT reading this!) move the Elf, and an alarm to wash my face. I don’t have superpowers, just technology that helps keep my ish together!! Do you have similar systems?? #alarmclockreminder
Alrighty health food lovin ppl, I tried buckwheat groats this morning for the first time and had no clue to what I was doing and did not take the time to prep and look up a recipe.

I do not like the taste, it’s kinda... floral like... help me out if you have a yummy recipe you could share it’d be much appreciated Bc i have a whole bag and I’m not letting it go to waste. #healthyfoodrecipes #healthyfood #foodfuel #fuelyourbody #veganeats

Ok, so “techinically” this is not Whole30 due to the introduction of beans, and our secret ingredient... We all know our winter triggers and vices. 😬
Summer squash is stuffed with turkey taco meat and cheese then baked until hot and melted. It’s the perfect vegetable-packed meal for veggie haters.
• 4 medium summer squash, cut in half lengthwise
•1 pound lean ground turkey
•1 tablespoon taco seasoning (or homemade mix)
•1/2 small onion, chopped fine
•1/4 cup bell pepper, chopped fine
•4 oz can tomato sauce
•1/4 cup water
•1/2 cup Parmesean cheese
•1/4 cup chopped scallions or cilantro, for topping
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Using a spoon, scrape out the seeds of the squash, reserving 3/4 cup and storing the rest for later use.
Place the squash in the boiling water for 1 minute, then place on a paper towel to drain.
Brown turkey in a large skillet until no longer pink. Add seasoning, onion, pepper, 3/4 cup reserved chopped squash, tomato sauce and water and stir to combine. Cover and simmer 20 minutes.
Fill each squash boat with the turkey mixture, then top with cheese. Cover with foil and bake 35 minutes or until squash is soft. Top with Parmesean cheese.
