A lunch so healthy, you’ll turn into Superman!


I’ve been on a health kick recently and one of my favourite things to eat, as you guys know, is salad! I’m trying to eat a bowl (a bowl the size if my head) everyday! Whenever I have salad, I feel like I’m hungry an hour later again and I start binging so I cracked it.. Glug down some milkshake after! It keeps me full for so much longer and tastes yummy!

Cut up whatever vegetables/fruit you like in your salads. You can see this one isn’t too extravagant!

I like to pour in 1-2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil which helps to remove the dryness of the salad and half a lemon-ish for extra flavour!

For the milkshake you should choose your fruit of choice! Just ensure its extra ripe! You can my bananas are briefing so were really sweet.. Having a riper fruit means you won’t need to add sugar or unhealthy sweeteners

Break them up into small pieces and put in your blender

The consistency I was aiming for was not a smoothie! I don’t like bits or smoothie-like consistencies so, I want to add as much milk as possible to keep it light. You can see I’m using semi-skimmed milk

To 2 bananas I added 3 & 1/2 cups of milk (875ml) which is a lot! But you can share with someone or make 1 banana or keep it in the fridge until tomorrow! Start blending…

And you’ll have a thick but not gloopy milkshake which doesn’t need anything else added to it

This is a really easy and quick lunch (will take you 20 mins to make the night before and leave it in your fridge until tomorrow)!

How I lost my stomach using my stomach..


I’ve struggled with losing my stomach for a while. There’s too many times I look in the mirror and everything is fine, apart from my bulging stomach! Because I’m lazy, exercise won’t work for me.. I prefer to just keep active..

.. Or, just change my diet. I’ve been eating really healthy recently because I’m not at work. Taking advantage of the time I have, has been tasting good so far.. If you’ll pardon the pun! So here’s a simple salad which I love making!

20130228-111829.jpg

What you’ll need:
Half a lemon
1-2 inches of cucumber
5-6 basil leaves
3 pieces of salami (any meat of your choice)
1/6 of a bell pepper (I prefer red or yellow)
1-4 of tomato (minus the gooey inside bit.. YUK)
5 olives
Handful of salad leaves
1cm round of an onion

You want to finely chop all of these ingredients minus the lemon which you want to squeeze in at the end. Add a bit at a time and as much as a you like. I like to also add a small drizzle of extra Virgin olive oil (1tbsp).

You could eat this:
By itself
On flatbread
In a pitta
On pizza
As a side
In a wrap
In a sandwich

Wrap in cellophane and let it marinade in the fridge for extra flavour!

Or try making a basic pesto by making the basil and olive oil a purée using a purée machine and crushing. And use it as a paste or sauce on any of the above methods!

If you want, try adding last night dinners meat in there too! That will help make the salad a little heavier if you’re not a fan of a light lunch.

Since I’ve been having this once a day, I’ve noticed a big change in how hungry or HANGRY I get.. Because it keeps me full for ages without giving me a massive bloated stomach (which I get quite badly after eating). It’s a great weight loss treatment and the olive oil has hydrated and given my skin such a shine.. Even though its a minute amount!
