Started craving a box of luscious chocolates tonight and felt panic rising. The last couple of months I’ve been enjoying my healthy, nutritious meals so haven’t been experiencing any real cravings. I’d reached my calorie allowance but also knew if I didn’t stop this craving in its tracks I’d be down on the chocolate aisle in Tesco like a shot. .
So I made my favourite sweet treat of late ~ 0% Fat Fage Greek Yogurt, @fage_uk raspberries, blueberries, grapes, Choc Shot, fresh mint. .
Only 203 calories. .
I’d rather be only 203 calories over my allowance than 1000+ calories over because of luscious chocolates! PHEW!! .
I just came back from a #beachwalk/clean with my friend. These are the sad results of #plasticpollution that we picked up from the shore. For humans, plastic is cheap and convenient. For #marine animals ( i.e. the birds you can see next to the heap of #trash as well as fishes, marine mammals etc.) plastic is a floating minefield and causes marine life holocaust. They get tangled up in threads, swallow them and die painful deaths. Plastic pollution is one of the most #serious threats to the health of our oceans and in the end also to us #humans. Because plastic is indestructible it is extremely hard to get rid of. Plastic never disappears.
When plastic breaks down or degrades, it is just torn into smaller and smaller pieces. Today reminded me again to go for #wisechoices instead #thinktwice before I buy the next plastic wrapped pack of cookies, asking mysdlf "do I REALLY need that?" There are many things though you can do to reduce your own consumption of plastics. On of my inspirations is @plasticfreemermaid that leads an example how to cut down on plastic consumption and shows alternatives. Check her out!
Buckwheat noodles are fat- and cholesterol-free and are a good source of nutrients like manganese, lean protein, carbohydrates and thiamine. Since buckwheat does not contain gluten, buckwheat noodles are a good choice for people following a gluten-free diet. Eat yo noodles.
