Beetroot Milk

I’ve been obsessed with beetroot/beets lately. Just the colour of the odd brownish vegetable inside makes me go oohing and aahing!

And, they’re perfect for a salad, dessert or even juice! I came across a recipe recently that promised a glass every morning would keep you as “healthy as ever”. And lines like these…are things I usually fall for. Be it fad diets/ crash diets or metabolism boosting ways, Sarah is always there to test it. Continue reading “Beetroot Milk”

Homemade Almond Milk

Most of the recipes I find online contain Almond Milk. Be it smoothies, puddings, and even bread! Almond Milk is not only a perfect alternative to those who are lactose intolerant, but it is also known to keep your weight in check.

Of late, I’ve been trying to get rid of some of those wretched pounds I’ve gained due to my current lifestyle. Hard being a food blogger ain’t it? And for someone who can’t go without coffee, milk is essential. (I have my coffee with milk, obviously) Continue reading “Homemade Almond Milk”

Baked Oat Burgers

Do you just have that feeling when it’s a Thursday night and you want to settle in with a movie and a nice meal? But worried about how you don’t want to choose something that has a high fat content?

This happens to me usually, and since my lifestyle is basically eating out, I try to avoid ordering as much as possible. This helps me hone my cooking skills and fills my tummy! Continue reading “Baked Oat Burgers”

Savoury Oats

If you’ve been following my website, you’d have noticed how fond I am of oats. So here I have another recipe that uses oats differently! Yes, this recipe is sure to make you crave it once you’ve read through. Continue reading “Savoury Oats”

Not “Just” Salads

I’ve tried Just Salad before and wasn’t displeased, so this time, wouldn’t be different either…or so I thought. The last experience was a home delivery so this was the first time I walked into its actual outlet. The place is rather small and can just fit in about 5-6 people. Luckily, though, they have an outdoor seating area which proved helpful due to the perfect weather outside. Continue reading “Not “Just” Salads”

Maple and Hot Chocolate Overnight Oats

I decided to make use of this opportunity to create healthy pancakes using just 2 ingredients! Trust me, you will fall in love with these, and the best part is they’re so versatile that you can add whatever you want and they’d still taste oh so good… Continue reading “Healthy Banana Pancakes”

Health Factory Diaries

Didn’t write yesterday and decided to combine both posts cause well, people just get busy with life. Today I had to cover an event in Dubai Mall, details of which will be posted soon on the blog!

Anyway, if you’ve had the time, you must have seen how I’ve been into eating healthy nowadays. Because of which, I’ve posted a few healthy recipes of mine too. Go have a look on the homepage.

Getting back to topic, here’s how my two days of meals from Health Factory fared:

Breakfast – Chicken Tikka sandwich for Day 4. I was finally relieved to have something different from the past three days of egg whites for breakfast. The sandwich tasted just right and had a little spice too. Something that was missing in the past few meals.

On Day 5, I had Fruit and Nut Pancakes with Fruttolo Yoghurt. And damn, these were good. The pancakes were soft and dry on their own, but accompanied with the yoghurt and they taste delicious. Health Factory also gives me an extra 100 calories of mixed nuts, which I decided to top this dish with.

Lunch – I was very satisfied with my seafood risotto accompanied with broccoli salad and a mango smoothie for an afternoon snack.

I didn’t have the meal sent on Day 5 as it was my cheat meal! And, also covering an event as mentioned above. Though, my sister who tasted it thought it was quite well done and filling. Th paprika chicken was a good combination with brown rice and veggies.

Dinner – For Day 4, my dinner consisted of vegetarian enchiladas and a mushroom soup. A comforting dinner indeed.

Day 5 ended with a French-dip Steak Sandwich. The beef seemed a bit hard and I couldn’t finish it.

The great part is, I’ve already started seeing changes in myself. I’ve managed to lose 1 kg by just eating 1300 calories a day and a little walking in less than a week! Hoping to continue this and reach my target weight.

Until then, happy eating! xx
