Here we have white potatoes with salmon and vegetables.

 

As you can see i have vegetables in all of these lunches that i have over the past week. This is to ensure that i am getting the nutrition i need from food and as we already know fruits and vegetable are packed with the essential minerals, nutrients and vitamins require for the body to stay healthy.

I strongly believe that if you have a balance diet rich in various vitamins and nutrients you are less likely to fall ill. I choose my ingredients carefully and research on the vitamins i can get from it, if the food item provides no nutritional value then i will have to cut it out of my diet.

I will end this blog here and until next time it bye from me.

What’s in my perfect ten smoothie

Hello and welcome to my blog. I recently made a smoothie which had ten ingredient in it. It was actually quite tasty. I initial bought the fruit to have at work and they were for to ripen at home however I left it for too long so I decided to make a smoothie out of them.

Blend it all well together

The ingredient

Mango

Peaches

Avocado

Blueberries

Strawberries

Apricot

Apple

Spinach

Kale

Broccoli

Cinnamon

Almond milk

Look at the vibrant colours

This is packed with multi vitamins and nutrients that the body needs to function to it optimum level. They are quite a lot and you don’t have to use it all but if your fruits are about to go off this is one way of making good use of them.

This is how I store mine

Let me know of any strange combination of smoothie you have made before.

 

Until next time it’s happy smoothie making.

I didn’t use all the ingredient just so I don’t waste them.

This is your more than five a day in one glass. The last time I added kale to my smoothie I regretted it; this was a couple of years ago. I struggled to drink it as it tasted and smelt awful so this time I added Cinnamon as I have been doing. The taste is not so bad thank God.

Here we go, all of your more than five a day in a mug. With Love 💋

 

Until next time, happy smoothie making.

The week in review

Balanced Diet, Cooking, Five A Day, Food, Grocery, Healthy Food, Healthy Meals, Journey To Clear Skin, Uncategorized

Hello and welcome to my blog. As you may have noticed I have not been posting about my lunch meals lately. I will be doing this on a weekly basis just to ensure that the post is properly prepared. For now let’s call it The week in review.

IMG_20180507_220741_388

For Monday I had potatoes, vegetables and lamb with gravy

IMG_20180508_133331_485

On Tuesday I had mix vegetables with couscous and chicken Nando’s lemon and herb sauce

IMG_20180509_132011_096

Wednesdays lunch was star shaped sweet potatoes with mixed vegetables and chicken

IMG_20180510_131733_471

On Thursday I wanted to have couscous but turns out the cous cous had gone off due to the heat. Preservation issues. So I had vegetables and lamb.

IMG_20180511_133421_229

Friday was mix vegetable brown rice and chicken with chilli sauce

I bought organic chicken this time because the free range available was to be on display till Monday. I noticed the taste was slightly different. It was really delicious. Might be due to how I cooked it.

As you can see I am trying to incorporate vegetable at every given chance. I am very strict about having a balance diet while ensuring that I have enough carbs and protein to maintain my weight.

In addition to this I have morning fruits thereby having all the nutrition I could possibly have.  So I am basically having more than five a day.

I would also like to invest in a juicer. A good one is very expensive so I am going to save up for that.

Until next time, eat well and you will feel better.

From looking at these items you will have a wild guess as to what my meal is likely to be

This week my meal plan has a flavour and twist to it. I also bought some ingredient for my smoothie, for more details check out my previous post on ‘what’s in my smoothie?

IMAG2165.jpg

I am not sure if i have mentioned this but every morning mostly monday to friday i have a warm water and lemon in the morning to ensure last nights meal has been eliminated. I drink this with a straw for the sake of my teeth.

This week’s meal plan

I have two options:

– Turkey Fajitas

– Lamb, potatoes and vegetables

Thats all for this post. Until next time it’s #HappyCooking.

Another 5 a day, vitamin packed smoothie for the week. 

I know i have craberry juice in the picture. I totally forgot to get coconut water so i was thinking to use that juice but due to the sugar content, i was a bit reluctant.

What i did was use water in the first blend with a bit more cinnamon to make it drinkable. I tasted the first blend without the juice and i liked it so decided to use water and more cinnamon. Will do this going forward.

Switching it up this time round. I think now that i know it tastes nice with water i will use water. Seeing that some of this fruits already have sugar on them.

Until next time, happy smoothie making.
