1,000 Calorie Meal Plan

I’ve created a few base 1,000 calorie meal plans.  This should be used as a standard plan & then extra calories added. Aiming for a minimum of 1,200 calories tends to be recommended if you’re looking to lose weight.  Depending on your weightloss goals just add foods to these plans with nutritions extras & lots…

28 Day Break Thru- FINALE

I’ve really enjoyed my journey along Fernwood Fitness’ 28 Day Break Thru. As mentioned in my previous blog post, this programme is designed with a healthy eating & workout plan. The plan I followed was Vegetarian Pear Shaped. All my meals & workouts were set out for me & each week a video was available…

Fernwood 28 Day BreakThru

Today I began the Fernwood Fitness 28 Day Breakthru! The plan runs over 28 days and includes meal and exercise plans.  I spent yesterday at Caribbean Gardens stocking up on my fruit and vegetables and then headed over to Woolworths for the rest. I was emailed a well thought out shopping list with plenty of…

Fernwood Fitness

Last month I was lucky enough to WIN a three month membership to Fernwood Fitness thanks to Natvia Natural Sweetener & Fernwood Fitness. A gorgeous pack of Natvia goodies & a gift certificate from Fernwood arrived in the mail & so I headed to my local gym to redeem.  I’ve never attended a Fernwood before,…

Breakfast

Here’s some of the yummy breakfasts that I have been indulging in the last week. Recipes can be found on my Facebook page- Halfway To Healthy.

Apple Crumble Muffins

I wanted to come up with a not overly sweet breakfast muffin using apples as I had an abundance of them! These Apple Crumble Muffins are low calorie, light & quick to create & bake. You will need: 125g wholemeal sr flour 1 banana, mashed 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted Pinch of salt Cinnamon Stick…

Kilojoules & Calories

I’ve had a busy week so not much blogging! I did get the chance to create a Facebook Page for my foods so please search Halfway To Healthy on Facebook to find me! Please Like and Share.  I’d love to have some feedback too! Coffee Club Enjoyed a late night snack & soy chai latte…

Lemon Slice

  This turned out better than I expected and is super low in fat & calories.  Next time I will aim for a more biscuity base rather than using the Weet Bix.  The cereal gave the slice more of a soft texture than a crunchy base. You will need: 100 grams of stevia/equal/Natvia- whatever is…

15 Kilo Weightloss

So I’m nearly there. I’ve lost 15.2 kilos with 4.8 kilos to go to reach my weightloss goal. It wasn’t easy. But it was at least achieveable & I didn’t need to sweat it up at the gym or perform a zillion crunches. I just looked at the situation logically. How does my body feel…

Smoothie Time

A quick smoothie for the morning- spinach, banana, raspberry, agave & unsweetened almond milk. Smoothies are super easy & anything can be blended quick & smooth & sweetened to your liking. A good way to get a dose of vegetables too!

24 Days of Salad: Tasting Plate

This has to be my favourite type of salad. A bit of everything without the pile of greens!  Usually a plate of lettuce with a few chopped up vegetables isn’t exactly enticing but a small variety of vegies and sauces displayed right, look much more appealing. Try mushrooms, mini capsicums, pretzels (yes pretzels), nuts, mayonnaise…

24 Days of Salad: Cranberry & Feta

So this salad was meant to be made with spinach but I only realised this as I tossed the last of the spinach to the guinea pigs.  I scrounged up some coleslaw and added a handful of low fat feta diced, a handful of dried cranberries & two sliced spring onions. I drizzled some balsamic vinegar…
