Coming up with different breakfast ideas everyday isn’t always an easy task. However, my main goal was to stop skipping breakfast, or cheap out and have a bagel instead of something nutritious. I’ve definitely been the kind of girl that had coffee and water as my breakfast every single day. Terrible, I know…
But it was time for a change! I might only be a couple of weeks into this new healthier lifestyle, but my energy levels have massively improved since I started eating breakfast everyday… a healthy breakfast!
My favorite breakfast options lately have been fruit parfaits, overnight oats, breakfast bowls and smoothies!
Here’s the recipe for my go-to fruit smoothie. For the record, I don’t measure anything precisely, with smoothies it’s very easy to add ice or water, to improve the consistency.
Handful of ice cubes
1 cup of half orange juice / half water
3 tablespoons of Greek Yogurt
1 teaspoon of flax seed (probably could have added more!)
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup frozen strawberries
Topped with a few fresh blueberries
Do you have any favorite ingredients you recommend adding to my morning smoothies?
I really want to try a smoothie with coconut milk…
Well, it’s true ladies and gentlemen, I have officially decided to become a vegetarian.
I remember trying once when I was a teenager. It probably lasted 3 months and I broke it by eating a JBC from Wendy’s. It was definitely an attempt at a new phase, well… a failed attempt.
However, for the past 3 years, I’ve been heavily debating going vegetarian, but this time, for the “right reasons”. I’ve blocked my ears like a child when people spoke of articles they read, or videos they saw online about the way animals are treated for the sole purpose of being served at our dinner table. I didn’t want to hear or see any of it, it was too hard for me to handle, easier to ignore. How selfish of me… When people say that you need to do it for the right reasons, I now understand what they mean. If you get to a point where you break down looking at the plate in front of you, well maybe you have some questions to ask yourself. Cue my decision to finally become a vegetarian.
It’s only been a couple of weeks. At times, my body struggles to adjust to my new diet. I suffer from low-iron, which means I will have to ensure I am feeding my body what it needs to function properly. But I have to say that I’m thrilled with my decision, and I’m so happy I finally made the commitment, and so happy to have the support of my amazing boyfriend that hasn’t made me feel bad once for saying “well, no I can’t eat that, remember?”.
It’s an adjustment, but a good one, and one I am very proud of.
