Valentine’s Day was never something I use to bother with but last year I got truly pampered by my boyfriend and decided that actually, Valentine’s is pretty awesome when a spa and fancy restaurant is involved.
It also means that spring is on its way which means one step closer to summer!
Another reason I love Valentine’s? Chocolate. My favourite thing. Now that I’m all healthy and what not I thought I’d try my best to make healthy versions of some Valentine’s treats you might like to share with your loved one. Some of them are kinda healthy but I’d still recommend eating them only in moderation.
Obviously these recipes were sooo dull to create and I definitely didn’t lick the bowl at all. Not once. Girl guides honour. Ahem. Anyhoo lets get to it!
I’m really excited to share with you a recent interview I had with my local newspaper with regards to some selfies I posted on my social media. Now for those of you who follow me on Instagram you’ve probably seen one or two of these pictures.
If you don’t follow me on Instagram (well for starters you should! Insta name: katyhemfit go follow me now, you wont regret it 😀 ) you can see the pictures below.
So why do I post pictures of my cellulite, bloated stomach and fat for the whole world to see?
I have a great feeling about 2016 and know it’s going to be a good one. I have lots of goals and things I know I’m going to achieve, but not without a solid plan.
I’m going to be having a look back at one of my goals from last year and talking you through how to make this year, your best yet!
The start of a new year is a great opportunity to consider what you want to achieve that year and how you’re going to do it.
Last year I decided I wanted to cut back on my intake of meat and dairy and wouldn’t you know it…6 months into 2015 and I went vegan (and haven’t looked back since). I never imagined I’d go completely vegan and at the start of 2015 would have laughed if you’d told me I’d be vegan in a year.
I also intended on spending more time practicing yoga but unfortunately that one got put on the back burner (I currently have the back pain to remind my why I shouldn’t have let that happen!).
Anyway it’s easy to say we are going to do something but, as we all know, most people’s NY’s resolutions don’t last more than a couple of days! Make this year, your year and stick to your goals by following my top tips:
This recipe has become my ‘go-to’ recipe for impressing friends (vegan and non-vegan) and a firm Friday night favourite when you’ve got a bit more time to prep. I never used to like chickpeas but I now realise that stems from memories of eating them undercooked which mean hard and crumbly. I have developed a great love for the humble chickpea and it is an excellent healthy option and meat replacement.
