Don’t they look delicious? I made these super food chocolate cups yesterday and there is only one left! If you’d like the recipe just make sure you are signed up for my newsletter. I’ve been feeling quite creative in the kitchen these last few days so should have a few nice recipes coming up over the couple of weeks. This week has been absolutely brilliant, I’m working on some super exciting new projects, more on them in coming weeks and months!
Another week of decent eats, everything has tasted good and been nice and easy to make…
Super simple Thai Green Chicken Curry Soup with chicken, spinach and peppers
Chinese 5 Spice Pork with stir fried spring greens and courgettes
Pork escalope with sweet potato, steamed spring greens and grass fed butter
Double peanut butter protein pancakes
Porridge with an egg cooked in topped with almond butter and dried cranberries
two fried eggs with avocado and an orange on the side
I’ve been continuing to love the juices and green smoothies this week too:
I really enjoyed a fresh beetroot, carrot and apple juice and my smoothies have been a lovely blend of green and purple kale, pears, plums and frozen pineapple and mango.
Loving the Yoga Studio app!
Workouts this week:
- Monday – Gym, 3,2,1 workout
- Tuesday – 15 minutes yoga
- Wednesday – Gym 3,2,1 workout
- Thursday – 30 minute intermediate combination workout from Yoga Studio app
- Friday – Gym 3,2,1 workout
- Saturday – Rest
- Sunday – Spin class
I haven’t ran or been to Metafit just because of the way the week has worked out with different commitments. I have to admit I much prefer getting my Friday workout in first thing rather than waiting for Metafit later after work and this routine with 3 gym workouts, a class and some yoga feels really good for me right now.
Is anyone else massively ready for new season fashion? I am so over the winter now, roll on spring weather and being able to leave the house without feeling like I’m going to get soaked, freezing or both. I desperately need to do a pile of laundry so outfits this week have been a bit meh. Instead I’ve been online window shopping:
I am really looking forward to lighter warmer days!
On Tuesday evening I did a meditation workshop with my friend, manager and business partner Gillian. As I’ve been blogging about recently, I’ve been making a real effort to work on my stress levels and I’ve found that meditation really helps. Gillian has been doing it for years, in a very down to earth and non ‘airy fairy’ way and the workshop was really practical. I’ve been trying to incorporate some meditation everyday, if only for 2 minutes while I make coffee! Also…

Next week is going to be another intense one for me before I take some time off the following week, but it’s all good, I now find that as long as I keep myself well organised I can handle whatever is thrown at me! I am chuffed that we have seen January out and are now in February, bring it on! How has your week been? Are you ready for spring yet? Give me a eat, move, wear, love or link from your week!
