Healthy Recipes to Make for Valentines Day

IMG_2903

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!

Lemon and Poppyseed Pancakes with Strawberry Puree

Poppyseed Pancakes

So this is one of my new favourite pancake recipes. I LOVE pancakes- it’s become a Sunday/Weekend tradition for my boyfriend and me to treat ourselves and have pancakes. This recipe isn’t one of my most healthy, but it also isn’t that unhealthy, especially if you make it with my strawberry puree instead of adding sugar or maple syrup.

I pinched this recipe from a lovely website lecremedelacrumb

So these are her wonderful words of wisdom (a little edited by me to add in my puree) 🙂

This salad is perfect for something like me who loves fresh crunchy salad and HATES soggy salad- the dilemma? I don’t have time to prepare salads fresh on the day I’m going to eat it. Often I’ll be taking it to work and need it to stay crisp and crunchy AND somehow manage to add a dressing without it going all over my bag.

So, problem solved…layered salads!

The Honest Truth About Weightloss

  
Warning- blog contains bad language and serious grumpiness.

This is probably the most honest post I’ll ever write- apologies for grammatical errors but rants don’t require proper punctuation and spelling okay?!

Most people would say I have an alright body- even I admit it occasionally. I also post pictures on Instagram of me in a crop top, stomach out (providing the lighting’s good and i’ve yet to eat breakfast, you might even see a hint of abdominal definiton) flexing as hard as I can.

However, I have days where i literally feel shit about my looks and although this post is mainly about fat and weight- these personally body hatred days often coincide with “why does my hair look like shit/i wish i wasn’t so pale and pasty/my nose is like a bloody witch’s (no offence to any witches reading this), i look tired, my skin’s dry etc. etc. etc. seriously i could go on forever.

Today happened to be one of those days where I literally want to curl up in a ball, spoon nutella straight from the jar into my mouth and binge watch netflix because everything is just shit.
