What could be better than having pie for breakfast?!
Having two pies for breakfast of course!
One of my favorite things about being plant based is all the delicious recipes. I know some people thing the exact opposite, that they will find nothing enjoyable to eat. I want to show you that is far from the truth.

One of my favourite evening treats used to be chips (or crisps depending on what part of the world you live in). They are so crunchy and flavourful but they are also fried in oil. Since cutting out fried foods on a regular basis is a must on any health journey, I thought I would share a delicious alternative with you. So for any of you crunch lovers out there, these are a must try.

There are plenty of exercises out there but for me there is one that stands out from the rest. That is The Plank!
The Plank is a great way to work your whole body in just one move. Planks work not only your arms and abs but also your back, chest and even your legs. Today I am going to share with you three different Plank variations. Choose your favourite and add it to the beginning of your workouts. Start with holding your plank for 30 seconds and increase 5-10 seconds each time you do one. Just be sure to hold proper form. If you feel like your getting tired and begin to lose form just take a rest and then get right back to it.
Having a clear vision of where you are going will help you stay focused and motivated. Be specific about your goal, state as many details as you can imagine. Come back to your written goal throughout the week to reread or even rewrite your goal. Staying focused on your goal will help you keep your motivation high and focused on what you need to do to achieve that goal. For extra motivation try placing your written goal somewhere that you will see it numerous times a day. This way you can reread your goal throughout they day and keep that motivation going!
