Here is another nutritious breakfast full of vibrant colours and essential minerals.

For today I have red, yellow and green bell peppers and Shredded Courgette which I tossed in the pan for a bit. I also have diced tomatoes and scrambled eat with chorizo.

And as always I have my greek yogurt with chia seeds, honey, peach, blueberries and Strawberries.

What a good way to start the week. I like how my breakfast has transformed over the months and all this ideas I got from going on one holiday. Sometimes it goes to go away to a different surroundings for fresh ideas.

Until next time, happy Monday.

The week in review

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.

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.

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.

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.

These are the entire ingredient for the meal but for the purpose of this blog, I will stick with the recipe for the meatballs and final product of the meal.

Hello and welcome to my blog. As promised this is the recipe for my lamb meatballs I prepared in last weekend. I did not make it using the traditional ingredients. I have seen recipes which includes bread crumps which I have tried before but didn’t like the out come.

You may think why not just buy the meatballs and cook with it instead of putting yourself through all this stress? I like to make things from scratch just so I know what I am adding and how much. This is was one of my main reasons for eating more home cooked meals and eating less outside during my clear skin journey and I did see some improvement.

Using your own discretion in the amount of ingredient you want to use. These are the ingredients I used

You then make small balls depending on how big you want your meatballs to be.

Let this slowly cook in the fan oven but if you cant wait put the heat up for it to cook quicker.

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.

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.
