Week 3 Vlog

So here we are at the end of the third week. Five to go. Nearly half way but not quite, and that's kind of how it feels. A bit of a slump week to be honest! Still feeling great, however, after chatting to a couple of other girls doing the challenge, we all agreed, not as much of a difference as the first 2 weeks. To watch my day by day here is the youtube link below, and don't forget to follow my instagram for stories and insights that I don't share anywhere else! Sx

Smokey Tempeh + Cauli Rice Bowl

Day 20! I spoke to a couple of the other girls at F45 this morning who are doing the challenge, and we all agreed that this week has felt a bit more meh than the first 2. I think it's because we are getting familiar with the changes, so there's not such a dramatic difference in how we feel. I'm sure this will improve, given we all stay on track and focused.  This was lunch today, which I shared the process on my instagram stories, and it really is my fave way to have tempeh. Marinated for around 10 mins and fried off nice and crispy in a hot pan...here's what you'll need. Recipe for 1... 2 cups cauliflower rice,...

Hemp Freedom Breakfast Bowl

I was going to bring you guys the recipe for my lunch today - a curried chickpea nourish bowl - but I actually can't stop thinking about this so here it is. I've named it freedom cos it's free of so much, but instead of lacking, it's a giver! Sugar free, grain free, gluten free, wheat free, guilt free...but full of so much. Essential fats, protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants if you add some dark berries on top. I generally let it soak for around 15 minutes before enjoying it, you could leave it overnight, just add a little more liquid so it's not too thick. Recipe per serve... 2 TBS hemp hearts, I got mine from good for store...

Tempeh Singapore Noodles

Day 17 of the F45 8 week challenge, and this morning had the most amazing super-moon that I gazed at on my walk in Cornwall Park. Turns out it was a Virgo moon, which makes sense as to why I found it so mesmerising...as I'm a virgo! And thanks to all the gorgeous links you guys sent me on direct message, with the meaning, and energy of this moon...so fab. On the opposite side of the sky was a stunning sunrise, which I managed to capture for this weeks vlog. So, onto this magic dish! I'm such a noodle fan, and konjacs are my saviour during this challenge. Virtually carb free, no fat, and they are ready in a flash....

Easy Beets + Broc Bowl

Day 16 and this is as easy as it gets! Great as a leftover too. You could easily add some baked tofu, or lightly pan fried in some fresh ginger and garlic would be super yum! I had my hair done today so feeling fresh as a daisy (a friend spotted my first grey hair in my early 20's so hair dye is always welcome! As a side note, I measured my waist, out of pure curiosity, and I was quite amazed. I knew I had some extra weight to lose around my tum, so I'm feeling so good about this! Beautiful food like this and daily F45 is a winner:) Recipe for 2 serves... 2 cups grated fresh, raw...
