Recommeded to those who really care about their diet or eat clean..Pasni sila lah burn apa yg patut ye 😅😅
Dairy, egg and gluten free cornmeal waffles!!!! Can I get a hell yeah 😄
The cornmeal makes then a little more crunchy and also gives a whole new dimension of flavour. In love!!! FOR 5 MINI WAFFLES *10g arrow root starch
*20g cornmeal *40g buckwheat flour *1 tsp baking powder
*Dash of cinnamon
*1/2 tsp vanilla extract
*100ml water or unsweetened almond milk
*1 to 2 tsp maple syrup
*40g applesauce (I use baby puree from @aldi_ireland)
Preheat waffle iron. Whisk together all ingredients until smooth.
Spray waffle iron with spray oil.
Pour 2 tbsp into the centre of each waffle section.
I have a Belgian Waffle iron with 2 sections.
Close and cook for 8 to 10 minutes. Mine usually takes 8 to 10 for the first two waffles.
Once cooked repeat the process. I made 5 mini waffles total. You can totally make regular waffles just be careful not to over fill the waffle iron.
Top with @meridianfoods maple syrup, @kokodairyfree and some smashed raspberries. A little few cacao nibs if you fancy an extra crunch!!! #waffles#vegan#eggfree#dairyfree#glutenfree#postworkout#healthyfastfood#healthcoach#brunch#irishfitfam#irishfoodblogger#recipetesting#f52grams#foodgawker
This is what happens when I don't wake up early enough to make my breakfast..biggest mistake 😣 I thought what I picked was the healthiest option but had such high calories!! 🙃🙂Since I'm calorie counting I'm devastated that this single stupid but delicious sandwich had 1000+ calories..need to educate myself more before I go off purchasing stuff! #healthyfastfood#isstillfastfood#panini#grilledchicken#yummybutsobad#breakfast
Hey hey! I have been beyond MIA this past week. I had 4 tests and now I have 2 more this week and then I FINALLY get a break 🙏🏻😭 Threw this together really quickly tonight so I can get back to studying! Sprayed wild salmon with @chosenfoods avocado oil and topped it off with a South African fish spice (my parents are South African 🇿🇦) I broiled the salmon at 455 till cooked through and threw it over zoodles with sautéed onions and @basiltops pesto. Finally finished it off with some @kitehillfoods dairy free ricotta‼️Hope everyone has an amazing week 😘

Chipotle is one of the biggest Fast Food Fix requests, so here it is!
Now, for the most part, Chipotle is a pretty stellar place for folks looking to get a high-protein💪 & low-calorie ⬇️ meal. But, there are a few weight loss tricksters 🤡 on the menu that trip people up...
One spawns from the popular myth that rice is bad for weight loss 🍚❌. I've seen a lot of peeps order a regular burrito and just get rid of the rice thinking that's the best move for their waistline 💁♂️...
In reality, though, one scoop of rice will only add ~200 Calories. If you're trying to save calories, then you're better off getting rid of the ~300 Calorie tortilla! 😳
Then theirs the guac 🥑. Here's the problem 👉 yes it has healthy fats and all... but it's also outrageously calorie-dense!📈
Eating higher-calorie healthy food is fine when you're maintaining or building muscle, but when you're trying to lose fat🔥, you have to be careful and not go overboard on them (which is VERY easy to do)...
HERE'S YOUR FIX ✅: The burrito bowl (steak or chicken) is the obvious winner 🏆. It eliminates the two big calorie culprits (tortilla & guac), is high in protein, and has a buttload of volume & taste for fewer calories 😋👍
What's your go-to Chipotle meal on a diet?
Let me know below! ⤵️

Still in transit and things are a bit, well, nutty... but there’s nothing like a giant bowl of gf overnight oats, spuds & a little manuka to sweeten up my Sunday, and let’s be honest, save me from HANgry-ness... loading a uhaul, packing boxes and dragging a mattress up three flights of stairs works up quite the appetite you know? But, at least this bowl tastes like home ✌️✨ #HANmadebyHG
Trying to make by with the last of the food in the fridge/freezer since we’re leaving tomo, but this really hit the spot still! Butternut squash soup with pumpkin spice, cucumber slices and a @westernbagel with laughing cow cheese 👌#comfortfood#soup#westernbagel#baegel#laughingcow
Jantar de domingo é sempre muito prático cá por casa. Hoje ficamos por umas "Club Sanduíches", com salmão fumado, alface, tomate, rabanetes e queijo creme em pão de girassol. Para acompanhar uns palitos de cenoura e molho de iogurte com beterraba. Simples, rápido e super colorido!!! 💚💚💚
Sunday dinner is always very practical here at home. Today we stayed with a "Club Sandwiches" with smoked salmon, lettuce, tomatoes, radishes and cream cheese on sunflower bread. To complete it, some sticks of carrot and yogurt sauce with beets. Simple, fast and super colorful!!! 💚💚💚
Traditional grocery stores are making it easier and easier to eat healthy 😃🎉👍🏻
Look at these great pre-cut/diced/shredded veggies that are perfect for quick, nutritious meals!
Here are some quick Raise up Health ideas for these:
Pic 1- throw the bell pepper, tomato, green onion and red onions into the slow cooker with chicken or beef to make easy fajitas. Serve with cauliflower rice or organic beans.
Or, brown grass fed beef and use diced veggies for tacos with Siete cassava tortillas or organic corn tortillas.
Pic 2- use riced sweet potato/cauliflower mix instead of rice for a dish or inside meatballs or meatloaf for added hidden veggies. You can also steam and purée this to create a healthy shepards pie topping.
Pic 3- use in place of noodles in Asian dishes or steam and then add into meatballs or meatloaf.
Pic 4- make a super fast egg role in a bowl dish with some diced chicken thighs or breasts, diced cabbage mix, coconut aminos, onion & garlic powder, a little ginger and honey. Sub chicken out for wild Alaskan salmon sometimes.
Pic 5- make comforting chicken no noodle soup. Put organic chicken broth and these veggies to lightly boil in a pan until cooked through. Add in leftover or fresh baked chicken breasts. Also add Italian spices, sea salt and onion/garlic powder.
Pic 6- sautée with some grass fed sliced beef or other protein. Season with spices, sea salt and you're done. Serve with some sweet potatoes if you'd like.
Healthy meals don't have to have tons of ingredients or be super time consuming. Think protein, veggies, seasonings, sea salt and healthy fats (avocado, olives, avocado oil, olive oil, coconut oil, nuts & seeds).
Any other fast recipes you love?
When it comes to #pizzadelivery , there’s only one chain that is worth mentioning: @papajohns. I love #pizza . It’s one of my favorite foods. But you know what I don’t love? Being fat.
Before I began tracking, I used to eat half a large “The Meats” pizza, which clocks in at over 1,500 calories. Now that I’m tracking my #calories and #macros , a 1,500 calorie meal is more like a badge of disgust than a badge of honor. And 68g of fat is more than I like to consume in a single day.
Fortunately, I’m able to easily satisfy my pizza #cravings at Papa John’s without compromising my #healthgoals . Here are a few things to keep in mind:
1) Toppings matter. Ditch the fatty meats like pepperoni and sausage and opt for leaner meats like grilled chicken and Canadian bacon and you’ll save yourself more calories than you’d think.
2) Slices matter. Do you really need that 4th slice? I used to eat 4 or sometimes 5 slices of large pizza just because I could. Now, I find 3 large slices is more than enough to satisfy me. If I’m not as hungry, I’ll just eat 2. Pro tip: buy a cheap pizza wheel on Amazon and cut each large slice in half. Then, eating 3 slices kind of feels like you’re eating 6.
3) Cheese matters. As of now, no pizza places that I know of offer a low-fat cheese option. But Papa John’s does offer a “lighter cheese” option, which saves about 40 calories per slice. If you’re eating a few slices, that adds up. And it still tastes delicious.
My go-to pizza at Papa John’s right now is the Hawaiian Chicken pizza with lighter cheese. 3 slices are only 780 calories, which is a very reasonable calorie count for any meal. It’s crazy that by making a few smarter choices you can go from consuming 1,520 calories to 780 and basically eat the same thing. It’s really all about nutritional awareness, which starts with tracking.
Mango chicken curry... perfectly spicy with a hint of sweetness...served with the magical life changing jasmine rice!!! If you haven't tried it...DO!!! FOR THE SAUCE
This makes one serving... make more and store it in the fridge in a seal tight container!!! *125ml unsweetened almond milk
*1 tsp curry powder
*1/8 to 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
*1/4 tsp Pink Himalayan Rock Salt *10g nut butter of choice... from @meridianfoods *1 tsp lime juice
*1 tsp cornstarch or arrowroot starch mixed with 1 tbsp cold water
I used cashew butter for this one!!! DIRECTIONS
Mix together all ingredients in a pot except for cornstarch or arrowroot and water mix.
Bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer. Add starch mix and whisk every few seconds while you continue to heat the sauce for a further 2 to 3 minutes.
Stir in a small handful of fresh or frozen thawed mango, a handful of sliced roast or pan fried zucchini and one chicken breast, diced and pan fried. You could add tofu or chickpeas for a vegan friendly version.
Leave to simmer for 2 minutes more.
Stir through some steamed mangetout or greens of choice before serving on a bed of jasmine rice.
Garnish with fresh coriander and black pepper. I added some rose petals for a pop of pink!

“If you’re waiting for the world to celebrate you, you’re going to grow roots. Acknowledge yourself!” — @agapisees
Unless, of course, you have a Health Coach 😉
Too often we dismiss all the good work we do on ourselves, in our lives, for others—because we’re waiting for someone to notice.
They’re not going to! They’re too busy worrying about themselves!!
It’s ok to acknowledge yourself. Acknowledge your efforts. Honor them with a little self-care. Take a well-deserved time out. Go on a date with yourself. Engage in a little retail therapy.
It’s not selfish to acknowledge what you do and who you are. .
You matter. You’re taking care of yourself and of others.
You lost that weight!
You exorcised that demon.
You healed that pain.
Well done!!! 🙌🏻
Losing the weight, facing your demons and conquering that pain is no small feat. It cannot happen without your full buy in.
It doesn’t happen TO you. You make it happen. ✨
We can spend our entire lives not wanting to do the work of facing our pain. So instead, we carry it around our whole lives..!😳
But not you. You are aware. You choose to take the step, face the fear, accept the challenge and do the work. You are seeing the progress!
Celebrate yourself! Comment below and tell me what you want to acknowledge about yourself 😊👇🏻👇🏻
After a lovely day out in London to Madame Tussaud’s we returned to a wonderful fast food feast. Pre-prepared cauliflower pizza and sweet potato wedges, just time to choose a movie before they’ll be ready.
