Another easy meal - Fajitas!
Half of pre-prepped (frozen bag of peppers and fajita spice and salsa kit) and the other half I had to do myself (chicken / mushrooms and onions)
Put it all in a pan (not the salsa!) and let the magic do itself. Warm up your wraps if you like it that way and hey presto...you have yourself some fajitas. Quick and easy and you can easily get 3/4 portions out of it too :) #peaksandtroffs #easymeals #eathealthy #healthyfood #healthyeating #food #foodprep #batchmeals #meals #healthymeals #fajitas

This is the easiest way to make the PALEO diet work for you:
The Paleo Pancakes look deceivingly delicious and come across as healthy right 🥞
I used to fall for them too!
It always strikes me as odd when I go to the store and see a Paleo pancake mix or some other pre-packaged Paleo food made with ingredients that are all heavily processed.
The whole point of eating a Paleo diet is to stick to foods that can be hunted or gathered. Just like our ancestors from the Paleolithic era did.
And to eliminate the foods which only became popular as a result of modern farming practices like dairy and grains.
But - there are still companies that find a way to mass produce “Paleo” products with a bunch of industrially produced ingredients.
And that is okay that they do this! Some of these products are great. I use them.
⚠️ But - Just because the package says Paleo doesn’t mean that it is healthy.
The truth is, there are two ways to do Paleo:
✖️Eats Gluten Free Products.
✖️Consumes processed foods with labels indicating “Paleo”. Fooled into thinking they are eating healthy, but the hidden ingredients could actually be making your health worse.
✖️Ultimately fails to achieve their goals and leaves you frustrated.
✔️Eats Whole Foods 🥑
✔️Eats organic, ethically raised meats 🐓
✔️Healthy & sustainable for the long-term ✨
✔️Doesn’t Eat Gluten 🙅🏼♀️
It’s so important to make the shift from a diet ➡️ to a LIFESTYLE. When you live the lifestyle, the goal shifts from “getting by” to THRIVING. 🙌🏻
And thriving means eliminating your bloating, regaining lost energy and motivation, shedding stubborn body fat and building the body that you LOVE. ❤️
Millions of women fail and give up on their goals because they can’t stick to the “paleo” diet or any of the other diets out there.
Few women embrace the lifestyle and achieve real, lasting results.
You can’t achieve the benefits without fully committing to the lifestyle.
Are you creating a lifestyle that is lasting & helping you achieve your goals 😊
3-day plant-based lunch prep 🌱
Each lunch = 700 calories 36P 121C (19Fibre) 8F
240g drained butterbeans 17P 31C 3.4F
260g drained chickpeas 17P 42C 7.8F
160g wholegrain triple rice mix 13P 136C 5F
200g red split lentils 48P 112C 4F
And variety of vegetables
I roasted the butterbeans and chickpeas together, then cooked down the vegetables and after a few minutes added the quinoa and lentils (as they need the same time to cook and roughly the same amount of water). The rice was cooked separately and broccoli added at the end 🤙🏽
Getting through that mid-week slump with a big bowl of oats topped with a cinnamon-ghee sautéed pear 🤤🍐 It’s been a super busy week for me with lots of appointments and a heavy work load, but lately I’ve been trying really hard to prioritize my health and well-being during the busy times. For me, when I’m hungry, tired, feeling sluggish or just eating a poor diet I find my productivity and even positivity start to go down. So, whether it’s getting up half an hour walker to make a proper breakfast or spending an hour or two in the evening prepping lots of fruits veggies and healthy snacks, I try my best to make time for it. 💛😌 .
Now for the deets on this bowl of oats:
In a bowl I mixed:
• 1/3 cup oats
• 1 tbsp hemp seeds
• about 1 tbsp dehydrated pb
• 1/2 mashed banana
• 2/3 cup water • dash of cinnamon
Then Stirred it all together and microwaved for 2 mins
• 1 pear diced into 3-4 sections and sautéed in a pan with 1 tsp of ghee and sprinkled with lots of cinnamon. Cooked until it started to turn a golden brown. • dried coconut
• pumpkin seeds
• big dollop of almond butter
• chia seeds
Healthy Breakfast Egg Muffins
Easy, and freezer friendly, these healthy egg muffin cups are the perfect make ahead breakfast. Delicious with or without cheese, so these can be Paleo, Whole 30, and dairy free too! ◻️Ingredients◻️ 1 cup lightly packed baby spinach — chopped
3/4 cup finely diced red bell pepper— about 1 small pepper
3/4 cup finely diced green bell pepper — about 1 small pepper
3/4 cup quartered cherry tomatoes— or grape tomatoes, about 1 cup whole tomatoes
6 large eggs
4 large egg whites
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon Dried Basil
1/4 teaspoon Dried Oregano
Pinch ground black pepper — or cayenne pepper if you like a little kick!
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese — plus additional to sprinkle on top *optional
Optional toppings: avocado — salsa, hot sauce, freshly chopped parsley ◻️Instructions◻️ 1. Place a rack in the center of your oven and preheat to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a standard 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick spray. Divide the spinach, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, and tomatoes among the cups (they will be about two-thirds of the way full). 2. In a large bowl or large measuring cup with a spout (my favorite because it makes the mixture easy to pour), briskly whisk together the eggs, egg whites, salt, basil, oregano, and pepper until well combined. Carefully fill each muffin cup three-quarters of the way to the top with the egg mixture. Optional: Sprinkle the feta evenly over the tops of the cups. 3. Bake for 24 to 28 minutes, until the egg muffins are set. Let cool for a few minutes, and then run a butter knife around the edges of each muffin to loosen it. Remove them from the pan and enjoy immediately, or let cool on a wire rack and refrigerate or freeze for later . .

Slightly disheartened with last nights weigh in results. Considering it was my first weigh in since Christmas Eve I suppose I should be quiet happy although, it feels even more disappointing knowing that I am running over 20km per week and not losing anything! Oh well, onwards and upwards I suppose! #maintain #stayedthesame #sw #slimmingworld #weighin #weighday

Intermittent fasting has been proven to be one of the most effective diet methods to lose body fat effotlessly.
I consider it more as a eating strategy, as simply restricts the amount of time you are able to eat in, meaning you’ll likely consume less.
Intermittent fasting has two parts; ‘Fasting’ and ‘Feeding’ window. -
In the ‘Fasting’ window, you’re not allowed to consume calories. Although called ‘fasting’, you can consume anything you want, as long as it has 0 calories. Tea, Coffee, Zero kcal are all acceptable.
In the ‘Feeding’ window you consume your daily caloric requirements. -
In the example above you can see the most utilised and studied type of Intermittent Fasting, with a 16/8 hour split. So you would be fasting for 16 hours and eating for 8.
The timing for the windows completely depend on your lifestyle and what is convenient for you. The only important part is sticking your ‘Fasting’ and ‘Feeding’ split. -
Intermittent fasting can make things easier, as you don't need to plan, cook or clean up after as many meals as before.
For this reason, intermittent fasting is very popular among the life-hacking crowd, as it improves your health while simplifying your life at the same time.
Intermittent fasting can also be busy individuals and It can be used as a way to lose a couple of pounds without noticing. 🙂
At the end of the day, there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to nutrition. The best diet for you is the one you can stick to in the long run.
Intermittent fasting is great for some people, not others.
The only way to find out which group you belong to is to try it out.
If you feel good when fasting and find it to be a sustainable way of eating, it can be a very powerful tool to lose weight and improve your health. @saifcoach

I love this breakdown of INTERMITTENT FASTING by @meowmeix
Intermittent Fasting Breakdown! While intermittent fasting isn’t for everyone, IF definitely has many great benefits & perks if it sounds like a good fit for you. Below I breakdown how to do it and what some of those benefits are.
What is IF
IF is eating within a restricted time period, usually involves a fast window of about 16 hours and an 8-hour eating window (Example: eating meals between 11am-7pm every day).
1 - Don’t break you fast with a heavy carb meal, choose a more balanced meal or a meal with protein & healthy fats focus.
2 - You can use coffee & tea to curb your appetite, just don’t add sugar or creamers.
1 - Can help cut help calories by limiting the time period you’re eating
2 - Boost your immune system
3 - Beneficial changes in the function of genes related to longevity & protection against disease
4 - Cellular repair of damage and dysfunctional cells
5 - Human growth hormone increases (helps with fat loss)
6 - Insulin sensitivity improves and overall insulin levels drop (makes stored body fat more accessible)
Reminder though if you have a history of eating disorders or are underweight this is not a good fit for you. Not all women feel great on this diet so you really have to check in with yourself and see if it feels right.
