After the slump in energy I am redoubling my efforts to stay healthy and although exercise is out of the question at the moment I am ensuring my diet is as healthy as possible. Daily juices and smoothies in the Nutri bullet are one way to ensure a boost :) I find little and often works best for me so a juice in the morning starts me off. Then, later in the morning ( sometimes nearer to lunchtime as the juices can be very filling! ) I have been enjoying a piece of wholemeal toast with some home made Rhubarb and strawberry jam that was gifted to me by a lovely friend. I then have a couple of small snacks and maybe another juice before a main meal in the evening
Here are the recipes for the juices...
The one on the bottom right is my own concoction...
Sunshine in a glass.
Pineapple, orange, carrot, coconut oil, flax seeds mixed with goji berries with ice whizzed in the Nutri bullet.
Life would be soooo boring without cake though and I subscribe to the idea that a little of what you fancy does you good :)
This recipe was posted on Facebook by a friend who knows I like to use veg in cakes :)
Courgette lemon drizzle bread with a soft lemony butter icing filling. The original recipe didn't have the filling it was Milly's idea.
It was a good addition :)
This is incredibly moist and absolutely delicious!
On the same day another friend posted a recipe for paleo coconut biscuits . As I had all the ingredients - all 4 of them :) - and the oven was on, I decided to give them a go.
Very easy, delicious and moreish:)
