A little inside information about What this Saturday’s party is about!
So a couple months ago I decided I needed to get ME back. I decided to cut out meat. And start being active again. But I would allow myself seafood in small doses (I live in Florida.... it’s fresh)
I’m not all the way vegan but I eat mostly a plant based diet and I’ve lost 30 pounds. In 2 months and a few weeks. I’m still going!
I’ve been drinking these shakes for breakfast in the morning (because apparently you have to eat to loose weight 😳) and the list below tells you everything about this company and what they are about.
PLANT BASED DIET ALL THE WAY is what I’m working on. The first step is to change your way of thinking.
I think back when I was a ballet dancer and I remember I barely ate meat and I never felt better! Today I can look myself in the mirror and say I feel like I can walk 5000 miles (da da da) and I’m only getting healthier!
It’s hard! I get it! I’m a mother with 2 kids and I let myself go because I couldn’t find time for me but you can make time! It’s possible! I’m lucky that I own my own business and can go around my schedule but the first step is again, CHANGING YOUR WAY OF THINKING!
So come out and listen to Rachel explain what Arbonne is about!

A big breakfast for me today, because I have a busy day ahead!
I had yogurt with chia seeds when I woke up, then when I got back from dropping my nanny girls off at school, I made this! Eggs and avocado on toast make my day! Add some TJs bagel seasoning and you've got me in heaven😋
The power of nutrition is extremely neglected in the recovery community. It’s time to take advantage of the benefits good nutrition has to offer, and incorporate it into our daily lives. In recovery groups around the globe it is common to see energy drinks, donuts, soda and cigarettes just to name a few. These products raise our cortisol levels making anxiety and insomnia worse, they cause fluctuations in blood sugar which lead to mood swings and trigger cravings. At New Convictions we embrace all that nutrition has to offer and provide each of our clients with a personal nutrition and brain health coach!

I sometimes feel like a hypocrite because I suggest that people should eat more veggies but I struggle with them so much. I can make a plate of chopped vegetables and stare at them in protest not eating them. I’m basically a child. 🥕
In an effort to be better, I have been challenging myself to put in a bit more effort to get a few more veggies in. So shocker, I turned to salads. 🥕
Here’s this weeks go-to:
✨ chopped kale
✨ tomatoes ✨ caesar dressing
The best part about kale (because what isn’t amazing about it) is that I can mix in the dressing at the start of the week and it doesn’t get all soggy and gross like other leafy greens. oh and all those vitamins and micronutrients are pretty good too. .
🌟 Veggie Sausage Bake 🌟
Back to work tonight, so late lunch/early tea 😏 Basically a pasta bake without the pasta 😂 There’s about 10 speed foods here I think 💪🏻 Basically just use any veg you need using up, passata, herbs and meat. I obviously don’t eat meat so I’ve used @lindamccartneyfoods vegetarian sausages that are 0.5 syns each and I used 4, probably about 3 or 4 portions here, so probably not even 1 syn 🤤 then added cheese cause grilled cheese is the best thing ever 😍
It's almost May... which means I'm a crazy mom with baseball, end of year, school projects, etc. So, I'm all about time saving recipes this time of year. I love these 3 ingredient pancakes when we're on the run! Super easy to make, using 3 ingredients that we almost always have on hand.⠀
~1 ripe banana⠀
~1/4 C Gluten Free Oat Flour - I like @anthonysgoods⠀
Mash the banana, then add the other two ingredients and mix! That's it! Cook on the stovetop using coconut oil. Top with real maple syrup and a few banana slices, and enjoy!⠀

FISH & CHIPS - DINING OUT VS HOMEMADE ⠀
I’m a huge fan of Friday night fish and chips and I wanted to demonstrate how some simple swaps can transform this favourite into a weeknight meal.
LEFT (Pub style/take-away option)
2 medium fillets (white fish, coated & deep fried)
200 Regular chips (probably more since a large KFC fries is 243g, I’ve been kind here)
Target sauce ~ 2 tablespoons
I didn’t count the salad or dressing (could have counted the dressing)
200g lightly coated pan fried blue spot emperor (white fish)
40g store bought birds eye oven baked chips (Deli seasoned chips)
2 tablespoon home made tarter sauce (let me know if you want the recipe)
I counted the salad with salad dressing (white wine vinegar and lemon juice) for this example
The option on the left to me is a supersized portion, HOWEVER it is a normal portion at most restaurants/pubs/bars/takeaway joints.
The option on the right is a homemade version. It follows a more balanced approach. Not everything on the plate is home made and that’s ok 👌🏼
You don’t have to eat perfectly all the time BUT I believe it is important to understand how you can make better choices/options at home.
My belief around food is - SURE eat whatever you like, BUT you can still be informed around the choices you make for YOUR lifestyle.
Don’t judge a smoothie by its colour!
You wouldn’t be the first to look at this green smoothie and say “no way!” Green! Vegetable! Yuck! God Forbid! But please don’t walk away!
Don’t let the bright green color deter you, green smoothie can actually taste wonderful and you won’t even mind the taste of the leafy vegetables. And when it comes to easy clean up/detox, a green smoothie cleanse should be your best friend!
So since we are in the clean-up mood, let me share with you a green smoothie receipe I absolutely love! This beginner friendly green smoothie recipe is full of iron, potassium and vitamins galore— AND tastes like a tropical treat.
1 cup baby spinach/ugu or kale (for the extra protein punch)
1 cup water or coconut water (preferably, for the tropical treat taste)
½ cup apple
½ cup cucumber
½ cup of mango
You don’t need any special instrument for this…..your regular kitchen blender works just fine.
Please use standard measuring cups …….moderation is key!
Tightly pack spinach in a measuring cup.
Add spinach to blender with water/coconut water. Blend together until all chunks are gone
Add mango, cucumber and apple to blender. I like to use freeze the mango a bit to chill the smoothie down.
Blend all together until smooth. Depending on your blender, this could take as little as 30 seconds or as long as 2 minutes.
Pour into a glass and serve immediately.
Enjoy this for a healthy breakfast! #healthyeating#cleaneating#healthylifestyle#healthylifestylist#lagosliving#lagoshealthylifestyle#breakfastsmoothie#greensmoothie#aftereasterdetox
So...... we all know it’s true 😂😂 Comment below your favourite snack! It could be something that’s hurting your fat loss goals.
One of the biggest ones I hear.... I was good last night, I had a couple handfuls of walnuts.
My response: amazing, all around great snack, BUT how much? The nuts add up 😂. Don’t be surprised if you are having 3-5 portion sizes for 500-700 calories! Be careful.
I will comment back and help you out 👍🏻👍🏻

Went to make some sweet potato egg nests this morning and then discovered I only had 3 eggs... so I had to improvise. Here’s a variety sweet potato hash brown plate. One with @miyokoscreamery vegan cream cheese, one with @traderjoes vegan pesto, one with @heb almond butter and blueberries and one with @heb Pretty Thai Muay Thai sauce. Happy Wednesday!
