Like I said in my previous post I do love how pretty the snow makes everything look, despite it making in difficult to get out and about. This picture was the perfect example of this. I headed out the other day to get some supplies from the village shop, which was inconveniently closed due to the snow and couldn’t resist taking a picture of the church. It just looked so stunning as the snow began to fall.
Since it has been far too cold and slippy outside to go out for runs I have been taking advantage of the space indoors and have been enjoying my yoga and work out DVDs. I love the MTV yoga series and have even found the Power yoga routine online. Its great that I can still get a great workout at home without going to the gym. Love it!
It’s been such a long time since I’ve had whipped banana oats, but I had a craving for them on Tuesday morning. To get whipped banana oats I just made them the usual way with lots of almond milk in the microwave and then put them in the blender. The oats become super creamy and delicious. I topped these off with organic honey, dates and pumpkin seeds…ah-meh-zing!
Another breakfast that I haven’t had in such a long time is a green smoothie in a bowl. So long so I cannot remember the last time I had one!!! This was made using spinach, a banana, almond butter, ice, hemp protein, vanilla rice milk and ground flax. I also added dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds on top. I cannot believe I waited so long to make one of these. They are definitely more satisfying then drinking them straight from a glass.
For dinner on Wednesday night I made a wonderful miso soup using organic miso paste, homemade stock, lots of ginger and garlic, peppers, courgette noodles, spinach, carrots. This was really light and comforting on a cold winter’s night.
My most favourite dessert this week has to be one of Tam’s cakes with coconut cream and softened frozen raspberries…yum!
I’ve also been pretoxing this week with these Alibi drinks full of herbal extracts and minerals.
In other news…
The first draft of our wedding DVD arrived this week. It was rather emotional watching the whole day back again.
We bought a gorgeous solid oak bed for our room. I cannot wait for it to be delivered.
A date for my thesis defense has been set…arrrgh!
I’ve been testing some recipes in the kitchen and cannot wait to share them with you.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
