A New Adventure!

Hello everyone after my recent troubles. I've decided to get myself fit and healthy this year and loose some weight. I recently started slimming world and it's been a huge shock to the system. I did slimming world a few years back and lost around 17lbs in 12 weeks. I feel really confident at the moment with it. I received some Items from Discount Supplements, online protein products to help me along on my journey.  The idea is so swap for some of the items I'm using at the moment in my diet with the following items that was sent. 

The items I received was : 

-          Buff Bake Almond Butter
-          Sweet Freedom Chocolate Orange Shot
-          Walden Farms Calorie Free Fruit Spread
-          Copura Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

I'm going to start with the Copura Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. Not only can you use this for cooking Cold in place of butter or oil.  It's also a great Moisturiser for Skin & Hair. I've been currently using it on my hair, as my hair has got really dry, it's so much better after just two uses with the coconut oil. I also made a lovely sugar scrub too, see below for the recipe.  

Homemade Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub

I used half a mug of light brown sugar use granulated white sugar and more if you want a really rough scrub. 

Half a mug of coconut oil.

The juice from an whole orange.

Mix together really well, then use once its bath time. The oil absorbs into the skin maying it really soft and smooth. 

The Sweet Freedom Chocolate Orange Shot is really low on calories, and makes you feel really naughty and it's great to use for hot chocolate, ice cream sauce or even to mix in with your morning porridge. At only 1/2 a syn for a teaspoon, it's become my new naughty treat.

Every now and again I love a piece of jam on toast. Walden Farms Fruit Spread is completely Calorie free and only 1/2 syn per teaspoon it's a great way for have a treat when you are waiting what you eat. Made with concentrated fruit extracts and natural flavors, but no calorie, fat, carbs, gluten or sugars of any kind. 

The Snickerdoodle almond butter is exactly what you want it to be - a delicious treat that is HEALTHY. This nut butter is the perfect combination of roasted almonds, all-natural whey protein and chia & flax seeds. With 11g of protein per serving.
