Hello Monday! I do love Mondays. Ever since I took the dive head first into the unknown that was JBY I love the sense that anything could happen, and it often does. This morning I was blessed with teaching a lovely class full of people keen to start the week on the right foot, even if it was a little chilly in the studio.
On Saturday my trip to the mall lead me into Waterstones where (thanks to Matt for asking, I never have the nerve!) I snaffled one of the last copies of the Deliciously Ella cookbooks. You may have seen me mention this already on Instagram or in my weekly newsletter. I may have only had this book a couple of days but I am obsessed with it already! Yesterday I made a huge batch of Cinnamon Pecan Granola to prepare for the week. I also made the Black + Kidney Bean Chilli which was a huge hit in my house last night.
I like to think that my eating habits are pretty good and I do eat a mostly plant based diet already but there are a few things I would like to 'clean up' as it were. Due to my job I am out teaching yoga classes three evenings during the week, this often means that I am starving by the time I get home and grab anything I can get my hands on... hello chocolate biscuits! I would like to curb this bad habit as I can feel the effects of eating too many biscuits, snacks and toast (with nutella) and I can be low on energy. So, onto what this post is actually about... I am going to be switching up my eating patterns with the help of the Deliciously Ella cookbook. I am going to:
- make more time for breakfast when I have an early class to teach
- have easy, healthy snacks on hand ready to grab
- get back into the habit of making a smoothie a day
- take time (which usually isn't that much!) to make nutritious plant based lunches and dinners for myself + Matt
These are four simple steps that I am hoping will leave me feeling more energised and less reliant on coffee which, lets be honest, has just become a bad habit.
Have you picked up the Deliciously Ella cookbook yet? What are your favourite plant based recipes?
