FAVOURITE HEALTHY BREAKFAST.

Iv long been a fan of Flax Seed,and this is my favourite way to get them into my daily diet…

Flax seed is one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet. There is evidence it can protect against, heart disease,cancer,strokes and diabetes.

So here is my recipe for “Flax seed porridge”,

Start off with two tablespoons of ground flax seed in a small pan..

Add a cup of almond milk….

Then an egg white….

and a mashed banana…

heat on a low temp until it starts to bubble…then serve with your your choice of fresh berries, blueberries work very well, and are full of antioxidants and lots more. http://www.womenfitness.net/blueberries.htm

My 500 Calorie day

We all had a little lay in this morning, after yesterdays long hike we were a little tired. Although we were only walking it has left a good burn in my calf and thigh muscles, so i feel it has done some good!

As i didn’t have to go out with the boys today, i took the opportunity to have my “500 calorie day”
Iv long been interested in the science of fasting, and while i am not as hardcore as some..(water only) i do find it very easy to stick within the 500 calorie limit.

I find it especially beneficial if i have overeaten the day before, I feel it gives my system a little rest….

Although simple to follow, i have just bought a book to give me some ideas of what to eat….

5:2 Diet Book

I started the morning with a cup of tea = 10 cals

Then had my usual porridge with almond milk, but just half a sachet = 73 cals

Almond Milk

Porridge Sachet

After this i felt fine till 2pm..when i felt the familiar rumble of an empty tum…

Lunch Time!!!

Lunch

1 Hard boiled egg = 70 Cals

Got home around 5.30 this evening so straight out for dog walks. I had them both walked within 90mins so I must have paced it around.
Its strange how I seem to have more energy on a 500 cal day.

Tea tonight was veg with a stew on the side. No potatoes, or bread just a little amount of beef to protein it up a little.

evening meal

Let me know if anyone else is trying this diet, and if so how are you finding it? Have you had good results??
