{RECIPE & WIN} Moroccan vegetable & Chick Pea Curry. #FoodLoversFestive

I am LOVING sharing these recipes with you all. I absolutely adore cooking as it is and since becoming vegan I have had an absolute ball experimenting in the kitchen and trying new recipes. I went to visit my Grandparents the other day and my Grandma had a lovely book called ‘Heavenly & Healthy foods‘. I stole a few recipes from it and I am sharing one with you today.

This is the epitome of a balanced meal. There is SO much goodness in this meal and it is so incredibly tasty. The kids loved it and it made the most massive pot I have half of it frozen in the deep freeze for a lazy day.

I DID IT! Thanks to The Skinny Juice Co, I completed my first 5 day juice cleanse. Read my first post all about it here. Listen, it was not easy and I am embarrassed to admit that I did cheat a teensy bit but I still finished it and I am SO proud. I have to be honest with you all otherwise what’s the point, right? Here are my physical results:

Weight loss
I started the cleanse at 54.5KG and lost a little over 2KG’s, leaving me at 52,3KG.

The Skinny Juice Co. My 5 day juice detox.

IMG_5954

As mentioned in my previous post.. the past few weeks have been a rollercoaster of birthdays, kids parties, work commitments, junk food and..well.. life. We have been so incredibly busy, the type of busy that barely leaves room for exercise and a good diet. Yes, I know that you MAKE TIME, but it really has been tough lately. I have been desperately  trying to get a grip on my eating habits as quite frankly, they are shocking. I need to take control of my body and my health and I have teamed up with The Skinny Juice Co. to begin my journey of setting things straight.

{RESTARTING} The Kayla Itsines Bikini body guide. My bikini body challenge going pear shaped.

I feel like I owe you guys a little update. With my tails between my legs I have to tell you that I have not set foot into the gym or into my running shoes for over 2 weeks. I am feeling the WORST for it! You know those people who say that you’ll FIND TIME to work out if it’s important to you? Whilst I generally agree with that ‘philosophy’, it has to allow for a little bit of slack somewhere in the picture. Sometimes no matter how important it is to you or how hard you try, life gets in the way and there is nothing you can possibly do about it. I really do care about my well-being and when I am on the point of vommiting from exhaustion, I tend to think that the ‘healthy’ choice is not to go to gym and exert myself.

{WEEK ONE} The Kayla Itsines Bikini body guide. My bikini body challenge.

Kayla6

I am luckily enough to have never had a ‘weight’ problem. Good genes (thanks mom and dad) I guess? I am waiting for the day that this changes (age 30 they say?) because honest to goodness you should SEE the amount of junk that I eat. My diet is absolutely horrendous and I really should be somewhat overweight. For some reason I’m not, but I’m really not keen to know what my arteries look like. You see, there’s this thing called TOFI = Thin on the outside, fat on the inside. That has got to be me on some level. I would eat Macdonalds for lunch every day if I could, WITH a side order of garlic mayonnaise for my fries. I love the stuff. I am *very* capable of eating an entire packet of biscuits in one sitting. In fact, I sometimes make tea just so that I have something to dunk my mountains of biscuits into. Romany creams, lemon creams, Oreo’s, Zoo biscuits. Chips, oh glory, the chips. Chutney lays, cheese, salt & vinegar, Doritos. Cheese puffs from Woolies, you know? Those little pieces of pasty heaven stuffed with melted cheese. *drool* I used to get FIVE alongside my lunch everyday when I used to work across the road from a Woolies. Doughnuts. Bubbly top deck chocolate and sour worms. Shall I keep going? This is NOT good. Yes I have the odd ‘feed bad’ day where I buy almonds instead of crisps and water instead of a sugary creme soda but I need to be a little more consistent.
