Whole30!!!! Yup I am doing another one :) Started today :D

Hey all 🙂 I’m doing another Whole30 and I need it. Been eating really crappy this past 6 month, I’ve gained some weight too and it is time to make a change. So I am kicking it off with a bang! Last time I ended up being sick and stopped it. This time I am going to go through with it and I hope i won’t get sick again since I was just sick for a few days.

I am really excited because my co-worker and her husband is doing it with me. Well she already started last monday. She was too excited and couldn’t wait. So we will keep eachother on track 🙂

I forgot to weigh myself this morning so I will do so tomorrow. I also need to measure myself and take pictures to be able to see the change better 🙂

Day 1: I had not bought any groceries before I started this morning so I didn’t have too much to use for breakfast and lunch. I did go shopping after so now I have some good stuff to cook with 🙂

  • Breakfast: Berry spinach smoothie with 2 eggs
  • Lunch: Zucchini soup with shredded chicken
  • Snack: 1 egg and a banana
  • Dinner: Jamaican run down ( fish stew) with cooked green plantain and kale

I’m embarking on a 30 day paleoish cleaneating challenge…today is day 2 :-) and a smoothie recipe!!

Hi i have been slipping for some time now. I have been eating to much of foods my body does not agree with. Like dairy (mainly cheese), sugar (in sweets, coffiee drinks, icecream etc.), processed food (chips, fries, etc.), even some gluten though extremely small amounts. And my body have been telling me to stop but i have ignored it. Now it is time to stop and get back on track eating in a way my body deserve. And for me to do that i need to challenge myself, i stay on track when i do. It is also a great way to kick start change and creating good habits.

My 30 day challenge will consist of paleo food, vegetarian food and raw food. That’s why i called it a paleoish clean eating challenge. And as always preparing and planning is the key to stay on track. Yesterday on day 1 i ate a delicious smoothie with eggs for breakfast, recipe below. For lunch i met up with a friend and had a salad topped with shrimp, snack was the same as my morning smoothie. For dinner i had salmon with oven baked sweetpotato.

Silky Chocolate Mousse Recipe :D

I was sick for over 1 week so I stopped the whole30. I will not resume but start over. Either this monday or the following. I know you don’t have to start on a monday, but it helps when counting the weeks and days 🙂

Oh la la I really needed something sweet this evening and I wanted something that was fast too. So I made this 4 ingredients chocolate mousse, that is so silky and smooth. Super duper yummy I want more hahaha.

New Year, New Beginnings.. I am doing a 30 day clean eating challenge

Hi hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas and New Years eve celebration. I surely did, spent christmas with family and New Years with friends. Since it is a new year i know a lot of people feel that with a new year there are new beginnings and potentials. Like starting over or geting another chance. Though this can be done any day or time of the year it seems like many need this, giving them a clean slate to start fresh. So lets 🙂

We tend to have some new years resolutions, which for most are hard to follow through or to continue with. WE tend to fall back into our same old habits. The best way to actually follow through is to not just say what you wish to do, but to also write down what it is and how you want to do it. How you can follow through and not start too hard because most people fall off the wagon. If this is you then write down your ‘bigger’ goal, then brake it down to smaller feasable goals on the way. And celebrate and reward yourself for reaching the smaller steps. It can be someting like getting a massage, doing something you love, you don’t have to reward yourself with ‘bad’ food.
