In terms of my diet I like to try and mix things up a bit like Banana and Marmite on Toast for breakfast.
I’ve been Vegan for about a year now. In the summer of 2014 Jessica and I decided to go vegan for the summer whilst she was home from Dance College. ( we do weird things like this you see) So from the July to the September we were fully fledged Vegans and then went back to eating a normal Meat eater’s diet until January 2015 when we took part in Veganuary. This is a campaign that is set out to try and get people I to try being Vegan for one month in a bid to save some animals. Whilst yes it is wonderful that less animals are at risk from myself being vegan, I do it for my health and for how I feel by being vegan.
After Veganuary Jessica and I decided to stay vegan. Purely because of how great we felt from adapting this lifestyle. I have more energy, I sleep a little better, my metabolism is sky high, I don’t really get bloated and my food digests quickly and efficiently. Sure, you can still eat a high fat, super unhealthy diet being vegan which I’m sure some people do because it’s easy, but I try to lead as much of a healthy life as I can. Also due to training in the gym a lot, I want my diet and my exercise to compliment each other to give my body just what it needs because what some people don’t realise is that you can’t out exercise a bad diet. You may be slaving away in the gym but you won’t see massive results if you aren’t taking care of yourself from the inside out.
Now, this does not mean that I deprive myself! Absolutely not! Much to my delight Oreos are Vegan, so many packets may have been consumed in moments of weakness…..However, like I said, I like to try me keep things and healthy as possible (without going overboard) so my latest Vice is a Pulsin Raw Choc Brownie. Delicious and nutritious especially on the go. My absolute favourite is the Almond and Raisin one, and it’s one of your five a day so surely you can’t need much more convincing…..
What I have been doing lately if I feel like I need something a little more indulgent and dessert like is to pop one of these Pulsin Raw Chocolate Brownies in the microwave for about 30secs. Absolutely gorgeous! Tastes just like a hot chocolate brownie that is normally really naughty but this is filled with so much goodness! Go on give it a try! I even tweeted Pulsin about this and they had never tried it before. Now they’re hooked! Next I want to try it with some Almond dream Vegan ice cream and with a Caramel Alpro Dessert pot (on separate occasions ofcourse!)
Have a look at their blog post that features my serving suggestion at this link:
I honestly had no idea no one had tried this before! Crazy!
As everyone is SO concerned about my protein intake, if I feel I need a protein pick me up I’ll grab one of these. It’s a Pulsin Orange Choc Chip Protein Snack. Absolutely to die for!
So this is what I’m hooked on at the moment when it comes to healthy indulgence and pick me ups. I’m sure I’ll share with you soon my next obsession too!
