Whist enjoying an amazing selection of delicious cakes last weekend we decided upon our theme for this week, healthy. Whether it be through food or exercise we thought it a good idea- post cake indulgence, to have a week dedicated to looking after ourselves. Here’s how we got on….
E’s week of Healthy…
In Winter months I do like to start the day with a bowl of porridge, usually sweetened with just a little homemade jam, today I opted for pear and chocolate, very tasty!
Fresh mint tea instead of caffeine to detox (though I do take mine with half a spoon of sugar to sweeten!)
I’m very lucky to have plenty of grocery shops on my doorstop selling fresh, locally sourced vegetables
A few cook books I use for healthy recipe inspiration
Walking= a great way to take in your surroundings whilst taking a few photos and it surely counts as exercise! In cold weather Ugg boots are called for
A trip home for some fresh countryside air, hard to beat
Currently my favourite salad: apple, celeriac, pine nut and pesto. I prepared this to go with a little smoked salmon and Prosecco for C and I’s Eurostar journey…
B’s week of Healthy…
Did I mention how excited I am to have my bike back? It makes getting to work SO much quicker
I know this doesn’t look too healthy but…
In the past I’ve been accused of being a little too focused on eating only “good” food – whereas its a much healthier approach to throw a few sweet treats into the mix
(and I made a lot of gingerbread on Sunday and it needed eating!)
A day off work spent with my mum, cousin and her little boy
We visited the National Space Centre in Leicester and had a great family day out
Something to lift the spirits!
(This is an actual bit of Mars – I think…)
A healthy-ish pudding of pear, muesli, nuts, yoghurt and honey – yum!
Today D and I played badminton – and really enjoyed ourselves
I definitely need to practise though!
(And obviously I forgot to take a camera…)
And this is where the healthiness sort of disappeared… in the form of a Sunday lunch carvery and ice-cream to finish… oops!
I think I need to try a little harder this week!
Have you had a healthy week? Any tips for a health boost?
