Clean Supper Club
Since missing the opening ceremony and weekend of the Olympics; as we were in deepest darkest most beautiful Cornwall, watching meteor showers and rolling waves and catching up with great friends. We’ve returned home and become hooked to the most exciting nay MIND BLOWING Olympics I think I’ve ever seen. Team GB you are totally awesome!
I’m writing this whilst hooked on the dizzying laps that Mark Cavendish is hurtling around in the velodrome… he’s just nailed / fought for (a long alluded) silver Olympic medal, fitness levels and tactics unthinkable to us lesser mortals!
2012 was an incredible Olympics in the UK and it inspired me to get off the sofa and run. I remember my first 2k I crawled home and wanted to vomit! Swearing I’d never do it again…until the next day - determined not to be beaten. I felt so much better and then my distance grew. Since then I’ve completed a few half marathons but I’ve realised that I run because I love it. I love the headspace or a good natter with the girls (middle aged women), I love the sweat, the scenery and dragging the dog along with me.
I don’t mind any more if it’s 4 miles or 10 or if my pace is slow, I just like to be out there on road, through the forest, round the lake, up a steep hill. Mind you I’ve a couple of friends who take part the most incredible ultra marathons across all terrains and I’m in total awe!
This year I’m meant to be getting back on a bike (hmmm we’ll have to wait and see).
Sorry this post is meant to be about gorgeous healthy body fueling food!!!
Our Week in Breakfast
Well we’ve enjoyed a real mix of breakfasts this week - smoothies, fresh fruit, pancakes, smoothie bowls and porridge – never a dull breakfast in this house!
Our Week in Food
The mixed weather has left us with a confusion of foodie cravings this week – you’ll notice a mix of soups, particularly easy as feeding the kid’s lunch every day as they are mid summer holidays. Soup just means loads of veg, lentils and great herbs and spices – I think this week we’ve had tomato and lentil, their favourite green soup and even curried cauliflower (the adults always love this one but younger taste buds sometimes struggle).
Lots of great salads, fail-safe sweet potato baked jackets and a seasonal fruit loaded crumble.
All of these recipes can be found on the blog or recipe pages - we are updating slowly- everything is being done more slowly- I’d forgotten how long it takes to get the children rounded up and into the car!
Now it’s Laura Trott – super woman!!!! (Sorry distracted)
