Who loves a good weekend of eating out and comfort food? or even a good week?
That's TWO hands up for me!
If you haven't noticed already, I'm all about balance, balance and more balance.
I believe all foods...even the so called more 'indulgent' ones...are to be fully enjoyed.
Food should make you HAPPY, not stressed out!
I'm not into restriction. I'm all about listening to yourself.
One day you'll be on a mission enter a pizza comma and the next you'll be hunting down the nearest green juice. Either way it's all good.
After a few days of comfort food, I CRAVE everything and anything that is FRESH.
This craving usually hits me on a Sunday night (surprise surprise)...and I'm guessing I'm not the only one...
So here are 8 fresh healthy recipes to start of your week!
This Mixed Berry Smoothie is the best thing to wake up to! I swear you can feel the nutrients flowing through out your body with one tiny sip. Like every smoothie, it's SO easy to make and will give you the energy you need to kick off the week.
APPLE GRANOLA! You guys seriously need to try this recipe, it’s incredibly delicious… perfect for breakfast or as a snack! Make it in batches and your are GOOD TO GO! The fresh apples really bring out the sweetness in this dish so it's perfect if you have a bit of a sweet tooth.
These energising Vanilla & Almond Butter Protein Balls are the bomb! They're the PERFECT for a morning or 3pm pick-me-up because they're perfectly sweet but also nice and filling.
So it took me a bit of time to get used to chia puddings but now I'm in LOVE. Packed with healthy fats and protein, this recipe is super nourishing and is a great grab and go snack or breakfast option.
