Healthy Eating

Hello Everyone 😊
If you haven't been following me on social media, why not? 😁

Well, I'm currently trying to lose weight. I started last week and I have been posting pictures on Instagram.
But in this post, I will be showing you what I've been eating and drinking and where I got the recipes from.
All my recipes were from Pinterest, I just tweaked them to my liking. Prior to making the smoothies, I had bought fresh and frozen fruit and had put them in mixed bags of what I may of liked, based on recipes I found on Pinterest.

Smoothie 1:
This was the first smoothie I made: Banana, raspberries and blueberries with 200ml unsweetened almond milk and granola.

I found that sometimes 200ml isn't enough but you can add as much as you like, I just top it up to make it as smooth as possible. With frozen fruit, the smoothies turn into slushies, which is very nice. 

Smoothie 2:
I have had this one a few times, they were already pre-mixed bags from the shop. This one contains: Apple, spinach and cucumber, I also used apple juice with it. Very refreshing.

Smoothie 3:
Mango, Watermelon and red grapes with apple juice.

Smoothie 4:
Mango, banana and raspberries with unsweetened almond milk.

Smoothie 5: 
Mango, banana and watermelon with unsweetened almond milk.

Smoothie 6:
Mango, banana and strawberry with unsweetened almond milk.

Now onto food, as before I found these recipes on Pinterest and I also found a blog with some good recipes too Slimming Eats

Meal 1:
Asparagus, egg noodles and chicken with any sauce you like. 

Meal 2:
Chicken thighs seasoned with paprika, black pepper and Chinese 5 spice with a bit of sweet chilli sauce. And leek and potato bake with bacon and cheese. 

Meal 3:
Plain cous cous with chopped carrots and broccoli in a chicken broth. I have been having this a lot, its so nice. 

Meal 4:
The same cous cous above but with chicken in it. 

Meal 5:
Chicken dippers, broccoli and carrot and swede.

Meal 6:
This is one of my other breakfast options, when I want cereal instead of a smoothie. They are Weetabix banana minis with unsweetened almond milk. 

I must be doing something good, as I've lost 5lbs since I started about 2 weeks a go. Snacking has been a problem but I've been having skips, light babybels, fruit, rice crackers. Basically anything healthy I can find in the shops. I haven't given up junk food, just having it in moderation or probably when my period is due. 

And that's it for now. If you want to see more foodie pictures then follow me on Instagram

Hope you liked this post, I will be updating you all on this journey with me, so stay tuned for next time.
