I’m the King of the world!

In the last few days I have felt like Leo aboard that giant steamer – full of spunk and excitement. This is the gym’s fault. I know Phil is probably sick of listening when I tell him about every minute and every stretch of my workout and how my muscles are aching and how good I feel. One thing he’s not sick of; our sex life. HELLO! That has definitely stepped up a notch since I got all energised and loving of exercise. I feel like I’m 20-odd again and full of vitality! Why didn’t I do this sooner?

Whole30, round three: what I ate in week four

This Whole30 feels like its going way faster than the last one. It just feels normal now, like I’m just eating. I don’t overthink it all (which is new for me). Before the last Whole30 and this one I cleared all my cupboard and fridge. It’s nice to know I can just go for the food in my house and eat it, no guilt. I definitely recommend this, especially on your first time – it’s so easy to fall off the wagon if there are quick, easy treats at arms length. I bought an immersion blender this week. So shit got exciting. Hello, Paleo Mayo! If you’ve missed the previous posts, weeks one, two and three are here, here and here.  

Recipe: Tuscan herbs and almond flour crumbed chicken with homemade Paleo mayo

Crispy, crumbed chicken has long been a firm favourite of mine. So as soon as I nailed the paleo mayonnaise I decided I needed something scrumptious to dunk in it, and what goes better than crispy chicken and creamy mayo?! I had tried making paleo mayo once before but failed miserably when the ingredients didn’t emulsify. On my second attempt, following Michelle’s strict instructions and recipe I had huge success! Phil is a huge mayo fan so was over the moon. You can find the recipe at the above link. For the chicken, check it out below:
