I will begin by admitting it sure has been a long time since I have been on here for a chat, or a telling of good food. In the time I have been absent, I have travelled, begun a health degree I am incredibly passionate about and had a lot of changes in my diet.
As some of you know, my main reasons for beginning this blog were to document clean eating and its impact of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I have nothing but positive and incredibly wonderful news about how all that has gone. My IBS is completely gone as a result of the elimination diet paired with clean eating.. I couldn’t be happier I as able to achieve it and have been repeating the benefits of being cautious of what I eat since.
I am back on here to revisit the goals of healthy eating that I left behind a little while ago and start over. I have not been eating unhealthy in the past few months… just healthy with a bit too much indulgence every now and then ;).
I post dominantly through Instagram under the username “healthy_positive_me” where I share foods I find, among other things. Have a look!
Heres to 2015.
I had a go at some experimental cooking and came up with a delicious muffin recipe (I’ve made over 3 batches since!!!).
2 cups self raising flour
1 and 1/2 cup soymilk
1 tbsp oil
1/2 cup sugar
I added some extras: 1 scoop of protein powder and 1/4 dairy free chocolate chips. Yum yum!
Mix all together and cook in a 180 degrees Celsius oven for 15 minutes.
Produce that is in season locally is cheaper, tastes better and has more nutrients. Fruits and vegetables start to lose nutrients immediately after they are harvested, so the best produce is that which is the freshest. Produce that has been transported over long distances overseas or cross-country can not compete with locally grown produce for freshness, taste and nutritional value. (http://seasonalfoodguide.com)
