a sour dough breakfast & a mixed berry smoothie

A sour dough breakfast

At the moment I am loving sour dough bread. Cutting down on gluten is doing wonders for my body, especially while I am trying to work out 5 days a week. I am going to Malaga in less that 2 weeks with all my friends and the thought of getting into a bikini surrounded by my tiny friends terrifies me so the only way to make myself feel more confident is to act it.

“Confidence isn’t ‘will they like me,’ confidence is ‘I will be fine if they don’t.’

If I was going to recommend any diet it is a gluten free one and we are lucky enough to live in a day and age where there is a replacement for anything. Chickpea pasta, gluten free bread… so much more!! I am so excited to go back to University and cook my own meals. I have already made a huge pinterest folder full of healthy, gluten free, vegan, vegetarian meals. I am eager to experiment.

This is a really nice and easy breakfast, it is full of good fats, protein and very little gluten. It is also extremely tasty. I LOVE SALMON, I could snack on salmon all day but I need to make the most of it while I am home because I won’t be able to afford it back in Bournemouth.

The ingredients for this breakfast just include; sour dough bread, avocado, pouched eggs and salmon. So tasty!!

A mixed berry smoothie

Smoothies are so refreshing I don’t know why I don’t drink them more, they are so good for the inside of your body and very cheap to make!! This smoothie contains mixed berries from Lidl, almond milk, a banana and chai seeds, so simple!

I am not massively into eating fruit at the moment, so putting them all into a delicious smoothie helps a lot. I want to share with you lots more smoothie thats I want to make. I will also share a lot of the meals I have found on pinterest and let you know how it goes. I am on the right track to with my diet at the moment and I don’t want it to be ruined by lack of routine or alcohol. You can do both its just all about priorities.

Happy Friday everybody. Have a good bank holiday weekend!

BLT Salad Bowl

“Skip the diet and just eat healthy”

This is a scrumptious recipe which is simple  and tasty. It is a healthy version of a BLT sandwich that includes bacon, lettuce and tomatoes but will a cheesier, sweeter taste.

THE INGREDIENTS

  • 2 rashes ofBacon
  • Lettuce (I just used enough to fill the bowl)
  • Handful of Cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 an avocado
  • 2 tsp of feta cheese
  • 1/4 of a cucumber
  • Handful of coriander

Top tip: Try and cook the bacon until it is nice and crispy. While the bacon is cooking, chop up all the ingredients and throw it into a bowl, followed by the bacon on top. 

I added balsamic glaze on top and a table spoon of balsamic vinegar to finish it off. I also chopped 1/4 of a lemon and placed it on the side which I squeezed on top as I begun to eat, to add a bitter taste into the mix and spice it up a bit.

How simple and delicious, happy eating!
