FINAL WEEK 23rd January

It seems to have flown by and I hope you’ve enjoyed the ride so far.

To get ahead the new treat on the block this week (and a video with me explaining it coming this week!) involves this beautiful Moroccan Clay, face masks, hair masks, foot soaks and body scrubs, it has made my face feel like a baby’s this week, it’s not expensive and you’ll find so many ways to use it I promise. Read all about it below.

Here’s a great priced one at £6.95:

Ghassoul (Rhassoul) Clay – 500g

Or the luxe version that is like velvet:

Some quick Sunday/Monday Prep:

  1. Make Chicken/Veg Stock – for many soups to come
  2. Cook up a big batch of both quinoa and brown rice, portion up and freeze some, save enough for three servings, to make salads, and add to meals for kids to save time. And then make these patties for a bit of crunch: http://lizzieloveshealthy.com/quinoa-crunch-patties/
  3. Make my super tasty Frittata with any extra roasted veg that you can have for breakfasts/lunches in the week ahead: http://lizzieloveshealthy.com/fridge-empty-frittata/
  4. A batch of my choc chia pots will keep you from running for the biscuit tin and have saved me this week:

*****************************************************************************************************************************

Choco Mocha Chia Pots

1 x 200 ml tin Coconut milk

2 tbsp chia seeds

½ tsp ground cinnamon

2 heaped tbsp cocoa powder

2 tbsp maple syrup

(30 ml shot of espresso use decaff or don’t add)

Scrape the contents of the coconut milk out of the tin, and stir together with the remaining ingredients in a pot with a lid. Make sure you have combined everything together well – use a fork or a whisk.

Put the lid on and leave to sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

Spoon into two small serving pots and slice some fresh fruit over the top or a sprig of fresh mint to serve.

******************************************************************************************************************************

If you have never had my Matcha Latte, this is a good time to try it. The perfect energy kick mid afternoon the power of Matcha Green Tea powder has been used for centuries as it calms, focusses and restores balance all at once!

My favourite is this Ceremonial Grade powder that is organic and tastes amazing – it lasts for ages just keep it in the fridge:

Be Love Body – Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder (It’s Proper Japanese Ceremonial Grade) – That Provides A Sustained Energy Release Throughout The Day, 30g Tin

I will be adding everything you need to this page as we go along.

FIRST UP WEEK ONE

SUNDAY 8th JANUARY:

SUNDAY PREP time:

First Up to buy if you don’t have it:

Please make these:

1) My Simpler than anything BERRY JAM

1 Butternut Squash
1 kg beetroot
1 celeriac
1 kg sweet potatoes
1 kg carrots
1 bag of kale
Fresh thyme

Then get home, peel and chop (apart from the kale) into 2 inch chunks about half of this load. Roast in a preheated oven at 180, drizzled in olive oil, sea salt and some thyme sprigs for 30- 50 mins until looking golden and crisping up. (Times really vary depending on space of veg and size etc) Leave to cool before storing – half at room temp, half in the fridge in airtight containers.

That’s it. You are now ready for tomorrow. With a ton of veg for lunches/salads/snacking on/soup making etc. And some ace jam for breakfasts and snacks galore.

WEEK TWO PREP

Sunday 15th January

PREP TIME and what’s coming up next.

First up, what you are going to need:

  1. Chai Tea

For the new cosy Evening Relaxation Drink – like a hot chocolate but with so much goodness, recipe below.

The warming spices and creamy cashews make this a perfect wind down drink with serotonin and blood sugar balancing goodies.

A caffeine free version Rooibos chai is the best bet to have before bed:

Dragonfly Cape Malay Rooibos Chai Organic 40 g (Pack of 6)

Or there are the regular black tea with Chai infusions that taste great if caffeine isn’t an issue:

Pukka Vanilla Chai Tea with 20 Sachets 40g

Or if you want the super luxe version, I adore Tea pigs:

Teapigs Chai Tea 125 g (Pack of 1, Total 50 Tea Bags)

Chai Evening Elixir

Ingredients

  • 1 mug of chai tea freshly brewed
  • 2 tbsp cashews
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (less if you don’t need such a sweet kick)
  • a pinch of ground cloves
  • ground cinnamon to sprinkle (or add if needed more)

Pour 1/2 cup of the chai tea into the warmed coconut milk, and the remaining ingredients into a high speed blender and whizz until a creamy frothy consistency.

Sip before bed for a perfect night time cosiness in the cold.

2.  Organic Walnuts

For the Walnut Pesto – going on everything this week – you’ll need a supply of walnuts. As one of those foods that suffers badly from pests when grown they are heavily bombarded with chemicals, so I would really think about buying organic. If you buy a big Kilo bag you save a lot of money, and they send them straight to you:

RealFoodSource Certified Organic Walnut Halves (1kg)

Walnut and Sage Pesto

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups basil leaves, torn
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • sea salt and pepper
  • handful sage leaves
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast (or 1/4 cup grated parmesan if dairy is working)
  • Water as needed

Add the ingredients, except the water to the magi mix and blend until a not totally smooth paste. Drizzle in water as needed to make the texture a dolloping paste rather than a solid.

3.  Whole organic chicken

Roast up a whole chicken today (Sunday) with halved onions, 500g carrots, whole, a quarters lemon underneath the chicken for it to rest on as it cooks and 4 tbsp olive oil and sea salt sprinkled over the top.

Roast at 200 degrees for 20 minutes, baste well then turn the heat down to 150 and baste every 20 minutes until skin looks golden, and pierced thigh has clear liquid running from it.

4.  Another load of seasonal veg

Buy up the following when you go to the market/go online shopping:

  • Kale
  • Leeks
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Butternut Squash
  • Onions
  • Spinach
  • Parsnips
  • Frozen petits pois
  • Rocket leaves
  • garlic
  • Basil
  • Sage

Obviously the more the merrier so do buy anything else that takes your fancy. If you liked last week’s veg roast up please do that technique again today.

5. Make a fast snack that’s super delicious tobkeeobin the freezer all week and pop out when you need an energy hit/chocolate blast without reaching for the kit Kats:

Pecan Brownie Balls

WEEK TWO OUTLINE:

BREATHING EXERCISE by Charlotte Goldsmith 

Have a little look at this video (it’s me having a go at it, so any of you can do it!) to prepare you for your next addition to your evening routine – this week is all about the evening.

A super simple, but crazy effective, 5 minute breathing exercise – it helps you focus, calms your mind and keeps you happy! Boom.

Here are some written instructions to have a look at too from Charlotte.

http://lizzieloveshealthy.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/Breathing-Exercise1.pdf

The Movement part of this week is using a medicine ball, super old school, but really effective for overall body strength and fitness. Use one in your local gym or any weighted object, sandbag etc will work!

But if you want to have the kit – I know that feeling! – then this is the real deal:
