Prepare for the week ahead

Prepare meals and snacks to keep you on track

What a Sunday! Food preparation is key to keeping your nutrition goals on track. Whip up sugar free snacks to always have them on hand when hungry strikes

Sunday saw me spend some of the afternoon on food prep to keep me going for the next few weeks. Gluten and dairy free breakfast, dinner, morning and afternoon snacks all prepared to keep me away from the temptations of bad food!

*Salmon, white and mackerel fish cakes made with goats cheese & butter
* Flaxseed crackers (scrummy with cashew nur butter and avocado on top)
* Deliciously Ella’s cinnamon and pecan granola
* Sugar free cocoa and berry antioxidant bars
(my new favourite)

Preparation is the key to success. When you feel hungry, you reach out for a snack irregarless of what it may be – muffin, biscuit, crisps. If you want to help fuel your body with nutritious food, you’ll need to prepare. I spent a while preparing the above so I had plenty for this week plus a stash of fishcakes and antiocidant bars in the freezer for later. Provided you store the granola in an airight container, it can last for a month.

Saturday night means treat night! 

Want to enjoy this delicious, sugar free fruit tart which is super easy to make?

Fruit tart 1

Just because its turned chilly doesn’t mean you have to turn your heating up and start eating stodgy stews. Are you trying to cut back on the naughty treats after summer indulgence?

I was hankering after a naturally sweet treat and remembered my good friend Rosie made this for me a few weeks ago.

Seriously tasty juice!

LOVE THIS JUICE!

This is the tastiest juice I’ve ever made!! It’s the perfect post PT session protein juice. I endured/enjoyed a tough cardio session with my personal trainer this morning and my body was craving a nutritious, easily digestible snack so I trawled through Jason Vale’s juice recipes and adapted a protein booster to suit the contents of my kitchen cupboard. I replaced spirulina with flaxseed & CoQ10 and chia seeds for extra nutrients.

It’s the first time I’ve take the juice and popped it in the blender to add extra nutrients and it worked really well.

Normally I drink juices to be good and get healthy vits inside me with varying results on the taste-o-meter but this one is seriously yummy!

Protein juice JUICE INGREDIENTS

 

How to make it:

Juice: x3 carrots, x3 apples, 1cm ginger

Transfer the juice extract into a blender

Add:  1/2 avocado, 1tsp hemp seed & 1tsp flaxseed with Brazil nuts & coQ10.

Result: Feeling so good now and ready for a day of ‪#‎Kinesiology‬ clients and studying.

Homemade Healthy Snacks

How many of us start the week with the best of healthy intentions and then fall off the bandwagon saying we don’t have have time to cook from scratch? I know I used to.

Nowadays, like the good Girl Guide I used to be, I try to be as prepared as possible so I have sugar free, nutritious snacks on hand. Sometimes time does get the better of me but that’s why we were given bank holidays! Two hours in the kitchen later and I’m fully prepped with homemade healthy snacks that will keep me going for at least the next 2 weeks.

Concerned about any of the ingredients or don’t like nuts? Pop in for a kinesiology session where we can muscle test your body for food intolerances to ensure everything you eat works for you and strengthens your body.
