8+ months …….

20131221-051152 pm.jpg

Aloha! I have missed being active and doing my regular posts. Let’s just say I was having days or ‘months’ of me time and not going over board with my pregnancy. But that does not mean I haven’t been documenting the weeks and months leading up to the birth of my beautiful daughter (blessed!). ๐Ÿ™‚

Breast Cancer Awareness month (and your previous participation)

Couple of months ago I had posted a topic on participating for Breast Cancer Awareness and Research, where I had requested family and friends to support me with my cause (click here full details). Today, being the 1st of October, a month dedicated towards Breast Cancer Awareness, I take the opportunity to thank everyone who took time to email or message me their pictures in pink to support my cause. This has meant a lot to me. As promised, I did donate the contributions to UK Cancer Research on the 19th of May, the day I lost my beloved Mother to this horrible illness.

Let us take a moment to remember and pray for all the brave people, their families and loved ones who are or have battled this illness together.

Quick fix 6

Today I realised that it has been quite a while since I have posted any of my ‘quick fix’ recipes. It just hasn’t occurred to me to take pictures and do a post. Well anyway, here’s me today presenting to you with my yummy ‘Jacket/baked potato with beans and salad’. Mmmmm… ๐Ÿ˜› This is very basic and probably the easiest to make. For this you will need…

Detox drink

It has been insane considering the amount of eat outs and takeaways we have had in the past week. So I decided to opt for a slightly healthier alternative this week, compared to the amount of junk food I’ve been consuming all the while. I am going back to my healthy smoothie drink as an alternative to my junk snack. Today being the first day, I decided to try this amazing detox drink.

Would you like to participate?

Every time I do a post, it’s always been focused around me. I just realised that for once I could take away the focus from me and involve my family, friends and anyone interested to participate in one of my posts.

It’s simple. Since one/few of my recent posts were on pink, I decided on making a post where anyone interested in participating can send me pictures of their outfit in pink.

Why am I doing this?ย I will be honest. Initially when I came up with this idea, I wanted it to be a fun post.ย But then, I wanted my post to have some meaning to it and not just another fashion post. Since I published ‘a week in pink’ post during this month, I thought I could use it as an excuse to get you participating in my next post.

The colour ‘pink’ is not just a colour. It is a colour which also signifies ‘Breast Cancer Awareness’. I thought I could use this opportunity to contribute towards Breast Cancer Research and Awareness by raising funds for the Cancer charities.ย Coming May, it will be 2 years since I lost my Mother and, 12 years since I lost my Aunt to Breast Cancer. So if I could show support in a small way, I would.

New trainers

My old trainers / running shoes has nearly reached it’s rock bottom and it was time to invest in some good trainers. I spotted this amazing Sketchers GOrun ride – Ultra running shoes, which is designed primarily for running. What more.. It was in NEON! I am a big sucker for neon colours and having spotted something so immaculate, I couldn’t say “no”. ๐Ÿ˜€

Soya chunks fry

Soya products are my favourite (except for soya milk!). Soya chunks, mini chunks and, soya mince, are a great substitute for meat products and they are equally tasty.

Soya also comes with additional health benefits when consumed moderately. These include; high protein content, ability to lower cholesterol, reducing the risk of osteoporosis and, they are rich in vitamins. Isn’t that great?! ๐Ÿ™‚

One of my favourite (of many!) soya recipes is what I would like to call, the ‘soya fry’. Thanks to my sister for sharing this recipe with me. I love this dish.

What is ‘DIET’ according to you?

I decided to write this post because I have been asked this question a number of times recently, “are you dieting?”. There seems to be a lot of confusion with regards to the word ‘dieting’. Some of you may call it, “healthy eating”, the rest may simply say “not eating at all”. Well the later to me is ‘starving’! In simple terms, the word ‘diet’ is used to refer to “the sum of food consumed by an organism or a group”, as quoted by the famous Wikipedia. Continue reading
