This weekend, Phil & I went to visit his mum before she returns to Hong Kong for the winter season. I always love leaving the hustle and bustle of London and venturing into the calm depths of Berkshire. This weekend was a fairly relaxed one full of that autumn feeling. Exactly what I needed.
As I’m 5 days into Pescetarianism, I have been craving chicken and steak like you wouldn’t believe! I knew it was going to be hard when it came finding alternate vegetarian/pescetarian recipes but trying to ensure I have enough protein in my diet. I couldn’t help but pop into Holland & Barrett to grab some Chia Seeds which I love adding to my morning egg white omelettes and smoothies. I also decided to try adding a morning shot of Aloe Vera to my routine as my best friend swears by it! She’s seen improvements in her hair, skin and digestion in just over a week.
Over the weekend, we opted for simple salmon & white fish dishes, spinach and potato. I was bugged down with headaches and the been hit by the bus hangover type feeling which I hope was due to the shift in diet. As I start day 5, I woke up feeling full of energy and not hating life (Mondays are NEVER easy). I’m hoping my energy levels only get better.
After returning from Berkshire, We spent the night watching mind numbing TV whilst indulging in Dominos (extra cheese, always extra cheese), drinking my fav merlot and searching for places to stay in Brussels over Christmas. Perfecto.
