IT'S A LONG WAY TO TIPPERARY......... ❤️💚❤️💚 That's doesn't matter though.... Mayo for Sam!!!😁🇧🇾 When travelling I always try to bring my own food and snacks when possible. 🥚🥪🥗🥜🌰🍓🍌Here's the reasons why1️⃣ Obvious reasons like it saves TIME so you don't need to stop on-route especially when you might be stuck for time due to unforeseen traffic, or delays etc and end up starving...... Which can then lead to blood sugar issues which we always want to avoid. 2️⃣Often there may be nowhere decent to stop on the main routes without going off the beaten track and you end up choosing the unhealthy options from a petrol station. 3️⃣ Petrol station options have improved yet there is still a lot of processing involved with the food there and homemade food will always better as you know exactly what is in your food and what you are eating.4️⃣ Processed food have additional additives, preservatives and other chemical treatments that alter the food and destroy the natural nutrients our bodies need especially when we need fuel for a long day out. 5️⃣Eating crap will make you feel like crap... simple as..... Eating food you have prepared yourself will provide you with the nourishment you need on a road trip and stop you getting HANGRY😁!! ! 6️⃣ You can end up drinking too much coffee to tied you over. 7️⃣ It can work out far CHEAPER to make your own sandwich or salad and eat in the car. 🔴 FOOD OPTIONS➡️ Fruit like bananas, apples, grapes, berries etc, nuts, seeds, carrot sticks and nut butter to dip in, oatcakes, rice cakes, dark chocolate, homemade sandwiches, homemade salads in a Tupperware box, NAKED bars, any homemade bars, hardboiled egg, yogurts, lots of water, flasks of tea, etc🔴PREPARE ➡️ Pack everything the night before. Store in the fridge. A cooler bag is good for travelling. Don't forget to bring a spare bag for rubbish, kitchen paper, wet wipes, cutlery etc. OK that's all folks!! 👋💚❤️ #mayoforsam #Roadtrip #nutritionaltherapy #nutritious #snacks #foodprep #picnic #castlebar #countymayo #bringyourown #processedfood #traveltips #mayo2018 #ireland🍀 #digestivehealth #guthealth #happytummy #goodhealth #vitamins #minerals #lifestyle #findingtherootcause
Homemade Roasted Sunflower Seed Butter...super easy and super duper tasty!
Used it as an ingredient in these amazing Glo Bars from @ohsheglows. I could also see adding this to my morning oats, a smoothie, on top of fresh made bread with some fruit, filled into a pitted medjool date...or just eating it right off a spoon! Super yummy and a nice change from my traditional almond butter.
2c sunflower seeds
2 tbsp coconut sugar
1/4- 1/2 tsp kosher or himilayan salt (amount optional to your taste...suggest starting with none, adding a 1/4 tsp and going from there...) Roast sunflower seeds in preheated oven at 350F for 20- 25 minutes (shake every 10 min or so and assess how roasted they are...they should be aromatic and just starting to brown). Remove from oven and let cool.
Add roasted, cooled seeds to food processor with coconut sugar and use a S blade and blend until starts to form a ball. You'll likely have to scrape the bowl and break up the ball that forms a few times. This can also take 5-10 min before forming a smooth, creamy texture. Just when you think you're doing something wrong it will start to smooth out...take your time and keep blending :-).
Once it starts to smooth out, add some salt and finish blending. Salt to your preference.
Scrape into a container and keep in refrigerator. Use early and often 😊

IS DECISION FATIGUE MESSING WITH YOUR MENTAL EFFICIENCY AND WILLPOWER “Making decisions uses the same willpower that you use to say no to doughnuts, drugs or illicit sex.”
Roy F Baumeister- A social psychologist from Florida University.
Willpower is really not a never ending source of strength. It’s more like a muscle that requires rest (just like you do after a set of pull ups)
Decision fatigue is something that I had read about quite some time ago and when I started to make small changes to my lifestyle (and habits) it allowed me to spend more of my mental energy (and willpower) on my work.
One of those things was; FOOD PREP.
If your week is anything like mine - the first two/three days of the week at work are absolute mayhem. The thought of having to think about what I should eat over course of those days contributes to this notion of ‘decision fatigue’. Prepping my lunch not only ensures that I consume something nourishing and delicious - it also takes one more decision off my plate, allowing me to utilise my mental energy for my clients, projects or creating content for my Vertue Crew, IG and YouTube fam - things that really demand a lot of brain power.
I know it’s boring to do, but a quick Sunday afternoon shop and some bulk veggie prep can go a long way for your lunch and dinner over the first half of a mental week.
Google Decision Fatigue - it’s a really fascinating phenomenon.
Happy Food Prepping ❤️🍍 #vertuecrew #vertuemethod
