Stir Fry

So once again I've been poor Nanna has been in the hospital for Three weeks now :-( We have no idea how much longer she's going to be in there. I have been living of takeaway for most of these three weeks, which has hurt my bank balance and my weight lool! 

So to get back on track we had this lovely stir fry tonight! Most of the ingredients came from Aldi, so much more cost effective compared to Tesco's and alike. 

So here's just some of the ingredients:
In this pan is White Cabbage, Carrots, Celery and Spring Greens all thrown in the food processor to make it quicker and easier for me! 

So I didn't take many pictures during the making because it was so quick! Was ready in less than 10mins! 

Here is the half-eaten end result:

Overall a great work night dinner for future me thinks! Sorry this is short! Catch you guys soon!!!

Alpro Hazelnut Milk

How have I not tried this before!!!

Bar far the best i have tasted on my cereal so far!!

Morning Juice

So just made a quick juice for breakfast before heading out to work! 

1 Celery Stalk
1 Small Apple
2 Cups of Spinach
1 Small/Medium Cucumber

Put ingredients into the juicer one by one

(I ended up adding a a tiny squirt of agarve nectar just to sweeten it slightly but taste before adding this)

This juice is full of Potassium, Calcium and Iron. I may possibly make this again tomorrow with some added Ginger! 

Going to attempt getting through my week coffee-less! Eek! Wish me luck

I'm backkkkk and a juice recipe for you!

So we had a lovely time in sunny Tunisia (although I did get severely sunburnt. Damn you pale complexion!) Anywhoo eating was a little bit up and down and I did falter a few times but I'm not guna beat myself up about it. I'm back now I concentrating extra hard to get onto the right path. 

I put on 1kg whilst away not impressed but the way I was eating it defo could of been worse. 

So I've been back since late Wednesday night but only just now (Saturday morning) starting to feel human again. Felt like a zombie the last few days and my eating must of contributed to that. 

So here's my "getting back on track juice" 😊

2 Apples
1 Small handful of Kale
2 Large Lettuce leaves
2 Stalks of Celery
1/2 Medium Cucumber

1) Wash all the ingredients
2) Core Apple but do not peel (I didn't core as I'm lazy)
3) Cut Celery in half
4) Roll Kale and Lettuce into balls and run through the juicer with the Apple or Celery. 
5) Juice the Cucumber last
6) Pour into a glass and enjoy! 

(Please Note: this recipe comes from the free Kindle book as shown below) 
I amended the recipe slightly as it called for 3 Celery sticks but I thought this would be too much and I'm glad I did. I also ended up adding a 2nd Apple as the recipe only called for 1 and I couldn't really drink it. 


Hope you enjoy! 

What are your favourite juices??

Lentil, tomato and potato soup

So I found this recipe on "ohsheglows" for a Lentil, Tomato and Kale soup. (Original recipe here: Oh She Glows ) 
I decided to make it tonight for dinner although I made a few tweaks to the ingredients. 

Below are Angela's ingredients:

  • 1 tsp coconut oil (or other oil)
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 3 celery stalks, diced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 & 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp smoked sweet paprika, to taste
  • 1/8th tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 14-oz can diced tomatoes
  • 5-6 cups vegetable broth, more if desired
  • 1 cup red lentils, rinsed and drained
  • fine grain sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 handfuls torn kale leaves or spinach

To this I added:

1 large carrot
4 salad potatoes
2 handfuls of spring greens (in place of Kale as I'm not keen on it) 

It came out delicious although mine came out more stew like than soup like lol. It was very filling and I thoroughly enjoyed it. 

Take a look at Angela's site it's full of wonderful recipes 😊

Take cares
