I am so excited to share with you something amazing that I have found in Korea (well, America with very cheap shipping, but still!)

A few weekends ago I learned about iHerb a wonderful American wholefood and health food online shop. I ummed and aaahed about it and finally decided to take the plunge! I love it!

Almond butter. Tahini. Wholewheat pasta. And so cheap! If you spend over $60 you get shipping for $4…that’s the same as a one way taxi to HomePlus!!! Eeeeeh!

I’m so excited!!!!

I’ve already made 2 orders and I’m prepping my 3rd one for next week I think! It is definitely aiding my healthy eating initiative.

I still love all things Korea, don’t worry! I will never stop eating Korean, but it’s nice to be able to stock up on little things like spices and stock cubes! YUM!

If you go on it, use my coupon for a discount…



Breakfast of Champions!

Breakfast of Champions!

Now, I have to admit, this doesn’t look all that filling or appetizing, BUT (and what a bit BUT it is) it was not only delicious but quite filling. I am allowed 400 calories for breakfast so I had 1 slice of wholewheat toast topped with 1 tablespoon of peanut butter and 1 teaspoon of strawberry jam; 2 satsumas; a cup of water with fresh lemon. Once I got to school I also had 100ml of soya milk with some coffee.

This helped me through until Meal Two (another 400 calories!). This entailed a wonderful cup of yogurt with 2 tablespoons of nuts and 1 apple, diced. I think that came to a little under my allowance, but it tasted quite wonderful!

For Meal Three: Lunch.
I managed a whopping 5oz of pork baked with 1 egg white, 2 table spoons breadcrumbs, carrots, herbs and pepper; green leafy vegetables and 2/3 cup of barley.

It doesn’t wound like that much food, but I can tell you it is soooo much!!! It is both wonderful and really hard to eat so much. This diet (or eating regime – as I prefer to call it) is quite nice!

I have noticed that I am really bad at taking photos of food! I will try and rectify that as soon as possible!!!

Get eating healthily and happily people!

Last week I made a change. It was quite a big change in theory. If it works. My friend, C, asked me to join her for a workout called Insanity. I have been getting a little lazy since I stopped training with my friend and his family. So, I said yes.

Now all I can think about is healthy food. Eating the right amount of calories and eating the correct foods for slimming down.

I have been looking at recipes and really enjoying myself.

I saw this cake from The Rawtarian. I love this blog and I am looking forward to trying new things. This cake is a raw chocolate cake!!! No cooking people!!! You can eat the batter! This is amazing! The only change I foresee is using regular cocoa powder instead of raw cocoa, but I’m ok with that 🙂

I am also on a budget these days. This makes eating healthily pretty tough. But I am liking the challenge and enjoying the feeling I’m feeling from eating so healthily.

I am planning on trying to show you all one of my meals everyday so you can see that it isn’t as scary as we all thought it might be.

Have you changed something recently? Please share 🙂
