Chris’s build up curry

Getting Fit For Forty

Hi fellow foodies and food preparers!

For those of you following The Body Coach 90 Day SSS plan will know how Cycle 2 is quite demanding on quantity of food.

With this in mind, I decided to have a play with doubling up the quantity trying to forward plan as well as meeting all the necessary quantities for carbs, protein, veg etc. That’s when I made the build (Made Up) up curry! Bosh!

I promised to share the recipe so here you go.

All quantities should be doubled as per your plan.

Chicken, sour cream, chilli powder, garlic powder, paprika, garum masala, cumin, seasoning.

Mix the above in a sandwich bag and ensure the chicken is coated and all spices are mixed. Allow to marinade for 1hour if poss.

Cut up the following veg in slices and cook in a pan with a little coconut oil.

Onions, peppers, tomatoes (cubed)…

Starting something a new strikes fear into most people, myself included. It presents the unknown, a risk of crashing and burning in a ball of flames or the potential to change lives for the better.

Today I have chosen to take the plunge into the deep end, and step out of my comfort zone (about 200 miles out of it!). I have always admired those who write daily journals, or the bloggers who’s posts keep you coming back with interest. The whole concept projects a sense of catharsis…but who would care to read about what little old me has to say?! It is this train of thought that has held me back for so long. My internal monologue is like a broken record on repeat telling me ‘your lifes not interesting enough to write about’, ‘your writing isn’t good enough’, ‘dont waste your time’ until I just put the idea…

Oaty Biscuit Bars

Tripping Through Treacle!

Tripping Through Treacle

Another recipe from me! This one is super-easy, quick and a hit with the kids (and my husband!). Dare I say it, I think that these biscuit bars taste alot like Hobnobs, minus the chocolate (a much-loved shop-bought sweet oat biscuit for those of you outside of the UK).

This recipe is based on one that I saw on the fabulous You Tube channel forJessBeautician- she makes delicious vegan meals and snacks. I highly recommend you check out her channel if you like plant-based food. These biscuit bars are dairy-free and can be gluten-free too (if you ensure you use gluten-free oats).

As some of you may know, I follow theOvercoming Multiple Sclerosis programmeto try and keep myself as healthy as possible. As this recommends that MSers avoid coconut products (due to its high saturated fat content), I decided to omit the coconut oil that…

12 week transformation challenge is set

Getting Fit For Forty!

Getting Fit For Forty

Image-1

As you can see from the image, I am just over 11 weeks until I head of to Ibiza for my stag do. What better reason is there to fully commit to a transformation challenge and try to finally achieve that six pack that i have been wishing for as far back as i can remember?

This of course coupled with the fact that I most certainly dont want to look fat for my wedding pics has further fueled my determination to secure this goal. If you have looked at my previous posts, this is not the first time i have looked to do this. I have tried a large number of times over recent years to the point where i feel like i am on some kind of constant diet. Whether i have been training for the boxing or taking part in the No More Bolics challenge I have…

Ultimate Guide to Nutrients: Sugar

The Purple Almond!

As a continuation of my “Ultimate Guide to Nutrients”, today I’ll discuss sugar. So, just what is sugar? Sugar is considered a “simple carbohydrate”. Here is a refresher on simple carbohydrates, from my previous carbohydrate article:

SIMPLE CARBOHYDRATES-consist of monosaccharides and disaccharides.These carbohydrates includes glucose. The function of glucose in the body is to provide the cells of the body energy. Other energy sources can be used, but it is the preferred fuel for the nervous system/brain and the sole energy source red blood cells. In other words, carbohydrates are a very important part of any healthy diet.

Here’s a breakdown of simple carbohydrates.

  • Monosaccharides-1 sugar molecule
    • glucose
    • fructose
    • galactose
  • Disaccharides-2 sugar molecules
    • lactose-made up of galactose and glucose…found in milk and dairy products
    • sucrose-made up of fructose and glucose…simple table sugar
    • maltose-made up of 2 glucose molecules…not found in many food items, but instead made from the breakdown of…
