Hola lovely people. As you may have seen, I just got back from spending a glorious week with some of my oldest friends in France. We were staying at my friends house, a beautiful secluded villa in the hills and it really was the biggest treat.
Now, I’ve talked a little bit about this on my insta stories, but prior to the trip Lily, our hostess with the mostest, asked if there was anything I didn’t eat. Perhaps she asked the question to everyone. Cooking for 8 people lunch and dinner isn’t an easy feat, not to mention on a budget, but of course I interpreted this as a personal question, and I was proud to say I was chilled with anything.
If something’s good? Then why change it?
I’m pretty old school when it comes to this, so when the kind team at Jusu Brothers recommended I order the vegan sushi on my visit last week, I was apprehensive to say the least.
I should start by saying that sushi is one of my absolute favourite foods. Morsels of fresh raw fish, juicy pink salmon or tuna atop sticky rice, rolls wrapped in salty nori and filled with creamy avocado. I live for the stuff and my appetite for it is pretty insatiable.
So why on earth ruin a good thing?
I am so happy to be back with my 5 minute juice series. My aim is to share an inspiring individual and hopefully some pretty good chat with you all weekly, however, with the madness of life it’s not always possible so apologies for the somewhat unplanned vacay from this section of the blog.
Anyways, we’re back and this week I’m juicing with 18 year old Flo from the instagram and youtube channel Plant Lovin’ Flo.I met Flo a while back at an event in London and have been inspired with her positive, sensible and down to earth approaches to food and lifestyle. Her main aim is to spread a message of self-love and confidence, especially to young women, very similar to my own. At 18 however, I can’t say my outlook on life was quite as mature so I wanted to get in touch with Flo to find out a little bit more about what she’s up to, her reasons for adopting a vegan lifestyle and of course, her own views on clean eating and the dangers of social media.
Last week I told you that you could achieve your dream body by simply shifting your mindset. I keep writing simply in these drafts and then crossing it out because in truth, there’s nothing simple about it! It’s a long and at times testing journey, but stick at it and you can work miracles – you can feel incredible. I’d love to say I’m a pro, but again, truthfully I’m still learning. Modern society doesn’t exactly help, and these days I can’t even scroll through my facebook home page without seeing mention of weight loss. SNOREEEE!
Body dissatisfaction isn’t a joke! I remember the first time I worried about the prospect of being fat as young child. It was on holiday in France where indulging in ice cream was one of my happiest past times. One evening after I joyfully exclaimed it had been my 3rd scoop of the day my nanny warned that I should be careful or I would get fat. (more…)
