Actual Healthy Pancakes – Tried, tested and STRONGLY APPROVED!

pancakes
Yes, these deliciously yummy pancakes are actually healthy!!

As a pancake lover (lover is probably an understatement) I was pretty skeptical about how these would turn out… How can pancakes that taste like pancakes actually be healthy? But they can!

All you need to do is warm up a pan, add a little coconut oil
Meanwhile, blend 2 eggs, a banana and a table spoonful of chia seeds
Cook the pancakes for about 30 seconds on each side
Add a topping of your choice – (I went for blueberries and a drizzle of lemon!)

And there we have it! Healthy pancakes – perfect for breakfast or a snack, and you don’t have to feel guilty about eating a whole stack!! … honestly they are a dream. My mind is blown.

Peace love and Pancakes x

Liz Earle – Like a facial every day…

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, Hot cloth cleanser is an absolute dream. It really does feel like you’ve just come out of Facial appointment every time you cleanse.

This week I’ve been trying to wear no make up most days. There is no big reason, it is just something I’ve been trying out to save a bit of money (on makeup) and clear up my skin a bit. My skin isn’t terrible, but I do get the occasional break out like most people. It is combination – it gets quite oily, but in this bleak Winter weather it can get quite dull and dry.

After halloween, a couple of friends came back to my flat for a few drinks as we weren’t going out (trying to save some money again – the life of a University student!!) and we were all covered in halloween makeup and not looking too pretty. After a couple of drinks, we thought it’d be a good idea to have a group cleanse, so I brought out the Liz Earle (a present off my Mum!) and we drunkenly got cleansing… weird but true.

Anyway, my friend absolutely fell in love with my cleanser and I thought I’d write a blog post about how right she is to do so – because it’s amazing!

You cleanse the face using your fingers in circular motions and then use a hot cloth to polish off the cleanser, before rinsing finally with warm water. I can honestly tell you that it gives you such a great glow, you feel like you’ve had a facial! It’s a very creamy cleanser and a little goes a long way. It feels like it is moisturising your face, but without being heavy in consistency. It’s so light and airy, your skin just feels so clean afterwards.

It’s quite pricey (around £15), but guess what is coming up soon? You know that thing where people exchange presents?! – Yes, I refuse to mention the name of it until after my December deadlines!

Peace and love and GLOWING SKIN x

Feeling pretty Vegucated…

Chipotle Grilled Tofu Tostadas

I recently watched a documentary called Vegucated, which was about making people aware of the cruel way many animals are treated before being slaughtered, so that humans can eat meat or dairy products daily. It was a bit of an eye-opener and I’ve decided to slightly re-assess my diet and try and be vegan for a bit…
There are many health benefits that come with being vegan, so I’m going to test it out and see whether I feel happier and healthier. So far today, I’ve eaten lots of fruit, some Vegan bars that I bought and some crispbreads and houmous… and I’ve drunk a lot of green tea – as usual! If you’re thinking of becoming vegan, these bars from Nakd. are yummy! Image My friend who is vegetarian and vegan one day a week said that Waitrose do Pesto tofu, which is apparently amazing, so I’m going to give that a go! 🙂 Stay happy and healthy, Peace and Love x
