Low Carb Cauli-Rice Risotto

Cauliflower has become my BFF on my weightloss journey because it is one of the most versatile vegetables on a low-carb diet! If you are struggling with carb-cravings, then you need to add this item to your weekly shopping list STAT! What I love about cauli, is that it feels “carby” when you use a bunch of it, but it also makes a fab side dish to pad out any meal in a low-carb way while still getting those 5+. A few weeks ago I made my first ever risotto, and I......

The Ultimate Guide To BBG Without Gym Equipment ♡

There’s a lot about BBG that appealed to me, but specifically there were three reasons that ultimately led me to beginning.  1. The programme is affordable (the PDF is a one-off cost, and you can purchase the app relatively low-cost), 2. You are able to do the workouts anywhere, and 3. Of course there’s the insane results that you see all across Instagram from other BBG girls! I wrote about how it’s maybe a little misleading to say you could do the workouts anywhere, without a gym.  I have a gym membership,......

Week 9 BBG Check-In ♡

Wow wow wow. Never ever did I think that I would be able to get to week 2 of BBG, let alone week 10! Yet, here I am. Tomorrow will be over halfway done with my week 10 workouts, and the end is most definitely in sight. I shared how I’d only ever done week 1 of BBG successfully before, and that I’d maaaaaybe done one workout from the week 2 programme. Every other time I tried BBG I really lacked the motivation and drive to turn my fitness and weight around......

The Ultimate Smoothie Bowl

Toss away the straw and forget everything you’ve ever known about smoothies.  The latest breakfast craze is one you’re almost sure to have seen on Instagram: the Smoothie Bowl! It’s the smoothie you know and love, enjoyed in a bowl, but here’s the key difference: you garnish it with your favourite toppings!  This truly levels up the smoothie game, giving it a more treat-like feel and making it a million times yummier. You can use fruit, seeds, nuts, chocolate, coconut, muesli or whatever you fancy!  For my smoothie bowl today, I created......

Why We Went Back for More♡

You may remember that I wrote about the experience Dave and I had eating plant-based meals for a week. Not only did we both lose weight (I lost 1.3kgs!!), had incredibly restful sleeps every night, and generally felt so good in ourselves – but these plant-based meals opened up a new world for my previously only meat-and-three-vege-dinner-eating boyfriend. Before Green Dinner Table he wouldn’t have dreamed of having a vegetarian, yet alone a vegan dinner. I only had to say the word vegan to him and you could see him conjuring up......

You Guide To Being A BBG Meal Prep Master ♡

When Sunday hits we all start off the week with the best of intentions to eat clean, get all our workouts in, and make progress towards our goals! But in reality, once the week gets going and deadlines are moving in quick and fast it’s easy to feel tempted and JUSTIFIED to grab all of your food out and about. Sushi for lunch? A bakery slice for afternoon tea? We’ve all done it. However, for those who meal prep all (or some) of their meals are already planned out and ready to......

WTF is BBG? A break-down for beginners!

This is my 8th week of BBG on the 12 Week Challenge!  I can’t quite believe it, or how fast the time is going!  When I started I wrote about how I’d never made it past week 1 before – and now I’m at week 8! If you’ve ever considered doing BBG or maybe tried a few workouts but never committed to do the whole programme, I hope I can share with you some information on what BBG is – and why I believe it’s well worth a go!   Some of......

How Eating Wholefood & Plant-Based Food Helped Me Lose 1.3kgs!

Last week I shared why I was so excited to try Green Dinner Table and their plant-based wholefood meals.  Now that the week is behind us how did we find eating wholefood and plant-based dinners instead of our regular meat & 3-vege in the evening? When the huge box arrived on our doorstep on Sunday afternoon, I had the job of explaining to Dave just what I’d signed us up for… a couples box filled with delicious chef-made dinners all perfectly portioned out with all of the ingredients we needed delivered right to our door.  Sounded......

Dinner to our door

Dinner to our door

Dave and I have a bit of a hectic week-day routine.  We stumble in the front door at 6 p.m. after a long day at work, and then we have to do our workouts.  After work, then workouts, the absolute last thing we want to do is spend an hour making a mess in the kitchen. In a perfect world, our dinners would always be pre-planned and pre-prepped, and cooking and eating it would cure the day’s stress, not cause it.  Luckily, we found an incredible local company Green Dinner Table who has our backs. Green......

The Meal Prepping Continues

I’ve become a passionate meal prepper.  Not only does it mean I save money not having to buy my lunches everyday, but it also gives me the control knowing that I’m feeding my body healthy food that will fuel it for my day ahead. It seems like I’m not the only one, and that loads of you guys are also really interested in meal prepping too, but you’re not sure how to begin.  I’ve decided that this weekend I’ll make a full post about the process – how I plan what to......
