Sunday Brunch

I think that often when you are trying to lose weight you think you have to give up having traditional breakfasts but that isn’t the case.

Quite often on a Sunday, as I get up later, I have a Sunday Brunch and today this included a bowl of fresh fruit and natural yoghurt and some bacon and eggs

If I hadn’t had the fruit I might have added some baked beans or another rasher of bacon but having scrambled or poached eggs with grilled bacon and adding tomatoes and mushrooms you can have a great breakfast.  As a tip, I poach my mushrooms with a beef Oxo cube as this adds no fat and keeps them really yummy and soft.

Mid afternoon I will have a small snack, maybe some crisp breads and low fat cheese and then I will be okay for my main meal of the day.

In this way I can vary my days but eat well and healthily. If you want advice on eating well and losing weight please feel free to contact me at enquiries@weight-away.org for a free chat on how I could help you.

Celebrating my daughters wedding

I am a bit late posting my blog as I spent the weekend celebrating my daughters wedding. We really couldn’t have had better weather and it was so lovely to see her so happy.

I now  have a house full of flowers from the day and some of the amazing cake to finish. The cake was made by her chief bridesmaid and was filled with wonderful fruit and alcohol flavours.  A layer of passion fruit and chocolate; a second of champagne and strawberries; and the top layers of kirsch and chocolate.

Cake  This is a picture taken as it was dropped at the venue.

We spent a fabulous day at Somerford Hall in Brewood Staffordshire and if you are looking for a wedding venue I would highly recommend  them as the day ran so smoothly, the food was amazing and the staff could not have been more helpful.

Back next week with more healthy recipes and I will be back to healthy eating after a weekend of fun filled indulgence!

Lovely light meal in minutes

I know that lots of people really struggle to find time to cook and often resort to take aways or ready meals.  The only problem with this is that often those take aways can be just overloaded with calories.

A  portion of Fish and Chips from a shop would be anything from 750 to 1000 calories (without peas or any sauces)

A 12 inch pizza around a 1000 calories

and a Chicken Tikka Marsala a staggering 1250 calories

Whereas in around 15 minutes you could cook this for less than 250 calories

Just Poach a piece of smoked haddock in some skimmed milk ( I prefer this not coloured yellow but I have shown this for illustration) with a poached egg and a portion of steamed broccoli and it would be ready before you could order or collect a take away.

If you want to know more about eating healthy to enable you to get to the weight you want to be then I would love you to follow my blog for healthy hints and tips or contact me at enquiries@weight-away.org for more information.

Still time to get that holiday body

If you are going on holiday and are worried about how you are going to look on the beach and out and about there is still time to lose some weight.

If you are interested in hearing how, I would love to speak to you and hopefully you could lose anything from 7lbs up to a stone depending on when you are going away.  I know if you follow my blog you will have seen the dreadful beach photo that set me on the path to eating healthily and losing weight.  So if you want to know more just get in touch for a no obligation chat.

Next week I will be back to posting some lovely recipes for you to try, but personally I have been very busy lately with final preparations for my daughters wedding.  This made me think how much I would have been dreading it if I still looked how I did on that beach photo!
