This is a tough one as I have had some great meals this week, but most of them are being kept “secret” at the moment to share for future recipes, like a recipe for thai salmon and sweet potato skewers. But if I had to pick, my favourite meal from this week was one of my favourite recipes – creamy avocado pasta. Why did I enjoy it so much this week when I have it most weeks? Look at the amount of feta on it….mmmmmm feta.
I have a favourite sausage from the week? I sure do! When I was a vegetarian, I ate a lot of meat substitutes and that meant a LOT of Quorn sausages, but what they lacked was vegetables. I love sausages, especially in the winter in a casserole, but they are also a staple at Summer BBQs too. Regular sausages can be so full of fat, which is obviously fine once in a while, that it made a nice change to find veggie sausages that are packed full of goodness and actually taste good.
I got to try Secret Sausages this week and was really impressed with the ingredients list. They have 90% less fat, 50% fewer calories and 35% less salt than normal sausages. My favourite flavour was the chilli and coriander, but closely followed by the Honey Bee. They have some garlic and rosemary ones that I really want to try too.
I used to be, and sometimes still am, the worst for doubting myself. I always used to tell myself that I couldn’t do something, so I never even tried. That all changed when despite telling myself that I would never be able to lose such a large amount of weight, I tried anyway, because that was all I could do. I took it one day at a time and reached my goal and surprised myself, and everyone that doubted me. We are all capable of doing far more than we give ourselves credit for. So, try doing something you have told yourself that you can’t do. You might just surprise yourself.
Favourite Tea Accessory:
My love for tea has gone way beyond buying every kind of new flavour of tea that there is, I am now starting to collect tea accessories like quirky cups, boxes to store my tea in, loose leaf dunkers (infusers would be the “posh” name) and now this awesome tea glass.
Libra Tea Glasses are eco friendly bottles to help you enjoy tea on the go. You know how everyone carries around those Starbucks insulators for their coffee, well this is the same, but for tea lovers. The glasses are thermal and have a glass interior, a durable poly exterior and removable tea filter, making it perfect for loose tea leaves. Did you know, loose tea can be re-steeped multiple times giving you more value for your money – green teas can be steeped 2-3 times, oolong often up to 5 times, even black tea can be steeped at least 2 times – making loose leaf tea very economical.
Favourite Exciting Moment:
I have signed up for my first ever race and my race number came through this week. I am nervous, as I still can’t run 5km continuously, but it is for an amazing cause and I will just do running/walking intervals if I have to. It is not until 12th July, so I have some time to train still. I am just excited to take part and for it to be my first race (I hear they are addictive) and as long as I cross the finish line, that is all that matters.
If you want to, and it would be AMAZING if you could, you can donate to sponsor me HERE. I am raising money for Cancer Research. I am already 68% towards my goal of raising £500, so anything you can donate, even £1/$1 would be VERY gratefully received.
