What I love to eat :)

Breakfast: Mango & Rasberry Smoothie
Serves 2
150cals per portion(Roughly)


200-300ml Orange Juice
(Depending on How Thick you like it)
1 Large Banana
1 Handful of Frozen Raberries
1 Chunk of Mango (Chopped)

Whizz all together and viola! So simple and so tasty!

Snacks: 
50g Raisins 
(Roughly 130 cals)


40g Roasted Almonds
(Roughy 200cals)


Use raw almonds, fill an oven tray and use 1/2tsp of Olive Oil and 2 tsp of Salt (Depending on the size of the batch)then mix them all together. Roast in the over for roughly 20 minutes at around 200ºC (Keep an eye on it, cooking time varies) Leave to cool then portion up!

Remember dried fruits and nuts are very nutritous and filling but they contain a lot of calories so always portion control! 

Dinner: Chicken Tagine
Serves 2
I got this recipe from Kelly at Kelanjo19, it was one of her cooking videos but is no longer up there so I've written out my version of the recipe here:


Ingredients:
1 Large Chicken Breast (or two small ones)
1 Onion
1/2 Red Pepper
1 tsp Ginger
1 tsp of Mixed Spice
1 Handful of Dried Apricots
1/2 Handfuls of Raisins
1 Organic Chicken Stock Cube
Tin of Chopped Tomatoes 
(Mine were whole so I chopped them up)
1 Tsp Dried Oregano
1 Tsp of Chilli (Powder/fresh/Sauce)
1 tsp Honey
Salt and Pepper to Taste


Fried chicken for a few minutes
Add onions, peppers ginger and mixed spice, continue frying until softened (if chilli is powdered add in now)
Crumble in stock cube
Add tomato, small amount of water, salt, pepper, oregano, chilli and honey
Cook down on lowest heat with lid on for 30 minutes
Serve alone or with brown rice or wholegrain pittas


I'm hopefully going to try an brand new recipe tonight, so I shall try and be a good blogger and post the recipe. Let me know any type of meals you would like to see,

Love,

Please keep the weightloss posts coming and meal ideas!! I am desperate to loose the flab before my summer holiday mid June but I am finding it difficult to stay on track with the healthy eating & exercise. I liked this post as I seem to be stuck in a rut eating the same healthy meals, salmon with cherry tomatoes & couscous & roasted veg with chicken & feta - help! x

I landed on your post about the challenge. I can tell from your posts that you are keeping up with the challenge. If you don't mind, may I know how much weight you've lost so far? Just curious. :) I like the way you're taking the challenge and posting your meals is also very helpful for most of us.
