Hello and welcome to my blog. This is the usual segment of “Today’s lunch looks something like this”.

As always they are usually vegetables. I have a lot of this because my skin is very stuborn so i feel eating clean or a balance diet will help. I have done this before so i know it does.

Hello and welcome to my blog. For today’s blog, i am going to allow you to  take a peek into what’s in my lunch bag.

Breakfast and lunch all packed up

Every morning, i make my breakfast, lunch and other snack and pack them into my lunch bag. It takes me about 30 to 40 minutes.

IMAG1385

Today’s lunch is white rice and mediterranean vegetable lamb stew i made at the weekend. In the thermocafe flask i have my sausage, two boiled eggs and baked beans. I warm the bake bean on fire with a touch of grounded cayenne pepper and olive oil. I also have with me my 5 a day smoothie, a banana, a scone with jam and cream. 

Today’s breakfast was greek and natural yogurt, honey, cinnamon and blueberries. I also have two boiled eggs, two sausages and baked beans. I have to eat this way to maintain a UK size 6. The struggle is real.

Part 1 of my breakfast. Yogurt, honey, blueberry and cinnamon which i added later on at work.

This way i am aware of whats in my food as i prepared it.

Thats all for today.

Until next time, bon appetit.

The papaya i saw in asda wasnt riped. I actually wanted to do this smoothie during the week but did’nt have the time to.

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today i am coming to you with yet another smoothie.  I wish i could have a smoothie everyday but we all know fruits tend to be very expensive so once my smoothie finishes i have to wait till my next purchase of fruits for smoothie. Today or should i say this weeks smoothie ingredient is as follows:

Kiwi

Apple

Strawberries

Blueberries

Pineapple

Cinnamon

And coconut water as base

IMAG1228

I tend to add cinnamon to almost everything. I have not reason for this i just like the flavour it gives my smoothie. In addition it is high in antioxidant. #Win

Blueberries are known for their high content of antioxidant and thus good for your wellbeing. According to Dr Axe “antioxidants help prevent damage of tissues and cells caused by free radicals, they’re needed to protect against heart disease and stroke.”

Delicious power pack 5 a day smoothie.

This is also your five a day on the go, all in one. I am on a journey to clear skin and i am certain this will help me achieve that. I have a work out blogpost coming soon.

I hope you enjoy this and share your smoothie ideas with me so i can try them.

 

Until next time, happy smoothie making

Hello and welcome to my blog. I just thought i share my lunch for today with you. The quest to clean eating continues and the items on the menu is as below:

Lettuce

Cucumber

Tomatoes

Olives

Free Range Chicken

Half tea spoon of mayonaise and bbq sauce

imag1166.jpg

Today’s lunch looks like this. I put the Nandos peri peri sauce in a small container and added a bit of mayonaise and bbq sauce not too much as i do not want it to overpower the salad.

The plan is to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into my diet and eat less processed food.

I have a banana and apple with me so i have fulfilled my five a day today. I also have free range milk natural yogurt and blueberries which i will have later today when i get back to the office from a 30 minutes walk with my team. In due time, i will share the scenery which is a lovely greenery golf course in the UK.

Until next time, bon appetit.

I bought some fruits for smoothie and for the week. I also bought the below:

Blueberries

Strawberries

Papaya

Green delicious apples

Kiwi

Garlic

Bananas

Olives

Cucumber

Free range eggs

Free range chicken

2 Avocados (1 for a hair mask and the other for guacamole)

Sausages

Coriander and garlic pita bread

Brocolis

I tend to opt for free range or organic meat due to acne problems. I seem to have it under control now. Eating does improve your skin and well being; in addition to exercising of course. I will share anything new i make for lunch and or dinner.

I usually shop for the week or just eat what i have left if i am feeling lazy or whatever i can put together in the kitchen.

Thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to share your grocery shopping ideas.

Until next time, its bye from me.
