Tropical Mango and Papaya Smoothie

Tropical Mango and Papaya Smoothie

Today I'm going to go ahead with a smoothie, because who doesn't love a smoothie?! One of my favourites is a mango and papaya smoothie, lots of exotic flavours mixed together, so yum!

I've got to admit that this is the first time I've ever had passion fruit. I randomly came across it and thought: yep, today's the day I buy it! I didn't even know the outer shell was not edible, I was planning on using the seeds in the smoothie and just eating the rest. It's a good thing I googled it and found out before I had it! And just incase you haven't had it before either, it was harder cutting into the shell than I thought it would be, and it has a pretty strong smell and taste for such a small fruit!

Anyways, this smoothie reminds me of a hot summer day so all the more reason to have it! Who drinks for nutrients anyways? (definitely me from now on)

Potato and Bean Salad

Potato and bean salad

So, for my first recipe I decided to do a healthy salad. I absolutely love it, it's so easy to make and really tasty. The inspiration behind it: a potato salad! One day I was originally making a potato salad and then I just tossed in a few extra ingredients and subbed the mayo for yogurt (because I had no mayo left) and done! I couldn't quite decide on what beans to use but I've made the right choice because those kidney beans with those broad beans make such a good combo. I've only made it a few times and it's already become a family favourite!

Here's to a New Start

Hello, welcome to my blog!

I'm on a mission, I've been at it for years without much success but I am not giving up! My mission? To become a healthier person, and I don't want to go through this journey alone. This blog is going to help me and hopefully you too to take that step forward and make that change.

It's such a struggle in this time and age to go for the more healthy options when it's easier to eat a burger rather than a salad. Don't you agree? And having a busy life doesn't exactly help, I find myself struggling - opting for a jam sandwich everyday, picking up biscuits and having those sleepless nights. I can feel the energy slipping away from me...

Here I'll be putting simple, tasty and healthy recipes.

So let's do this together, I help you and you help me :)
