Motivating Your Monday - The Best Mama. 5 Weeks Until Cuba! New Fridge-Freezer, Fate?

February 13, 2017

Lots of fun, exciting video content to edit from yesterday, eating out advice & difficulties, Cuba recipe research and testing & mindful colouring to chill the mind. 

A busy two days ahead. 

And Mama sets me straigh. Who needs a PA when you have a Wonder Woman Mama - 

Coffee to keep me awake, purple sweet potatoes to keep carb'ed up & make the yummiest fries, news clippings for blog research, Apple chips to get the fruit in and a flavour infusing water bottle to keep me hydrated!!! 

She has covered everything!! 

Loving the coffee and infused water bottle ! 

Thank you Mama ! True angel! 

Look forward to more videos this week! Quite a busy week planned with I am sure lots to capture!!!!

Here is the first video of the week, when your freezer packs in and your day off turns into a manual labour work out. 

To turn a slight disaster into a postivie I am trying to believe my trusty old fridge-freezer died to make room for all the new foods, recipes and ideas for my Cuba book, with five weeks to go! Maybe the angels are just trying to inspire me and get me prepared so I can create the best book possible. I simply can't wait!!  

With a test cake going well the other night & another dessert recipe to try this week, they must know I have started and working towards creating you all the most delicious Cuba classic dishes possible, packed with their favourite flavours and exotic twists!

Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN. 

Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
