Coconut Yogurt is actually not bad.....!


This is not a paid review.😊 

 I thought I would share what I have been having for my breakfast recently that has kept the chocolate and caffeine cravings the hell away from me. I recently discovered Liberte Mediterranean Coconut flavoured yogurt! I tried it at one of the sampling centre at my local grocery store and I can't stop eating it! I can't endorse this as a completely healthy product because of the fat content in it but it is SO delicious and so filling. I have it for breakfast with some muesli. I let the muesli soak for a good half hour in the yogurt so it softens and is much easier to eat. If you are looking for a quick breakfast full of protein and the goodness of muesli, this is a nice pair. 
I am just happy to be back on a normal eating schedule after a few last months of craziness. The effect of not eating properly and on time had started to show on my face. To the point that even my kids and my staff commented that I looked tired and old. The "old" comment of course came from my cheeky teens. I just hope I can keep it up. I find that I usually start a healthy trend and it starts to dip low. I need to get some motivation from somewhere and really get moving again. Eating breakfast and sipping hot ayurvedic water has helped recently. Now if anyone has tips on how to get rid of under eye circles so I don't look like an Indian raccoon, I welcome them!

Excuse the background photo my current Netflix Bingewatch- 'How to get away with Murder'. Damn Fantastic Show by the way.

Be Good To Yourself...

Today has been a chilly day...one of those days where it's wet,damp and just plain cold. I don't want to complain about it too much because, well, there is nothing I can do except make the most of it. As in life!

While driving to work this morning, I had planned my entire day out as I normally do. I don't know what happened around mid day and all of a sudden, the elaborate meal planning and activities didn't appeal to me. All I wanted to do was get home and just sleep off the exhaustion of the last few weeks. I felt a sudden pang of guilt as I mentally crossed off stuff I was still finishing up. Half an hour later, I decided I would just be a little lazy, a little self indulgent and I ended up taking a 45 minute nap when I got home. The nap was exactly what I needed. Surprisingly, I had no phone calls,texts from work or elsewhere to distract me. It was meant to be.
This evening, dinner plans went to hell and I just made do with the ultimate of comfort foods- Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Tomato Soup and a Salad.

The best part is I don't and didn't  feel guilty! The old me would have felt bad for hours for serving such an effortless meal to the kids. Not today! The kids were happy, bellies full and off they went in their own directions leaving me content. This is a beautiful thing- it's called being good to yourself. 
I always used to sign my posts and hand written letters with "be good to yourself" to my loved ones. I finally took my own advice!
Now onto a good cup of Lemon-Honey tea and some fluff Danielle Steele Novel to finish off the day!
