My Evening Routine

I recently changed my evening routine and I think it is so so much better than the one I had before.  I would always end up going to bed stupidly late because I would tell myself a time I wanted to go to bed but end up sitting on the sofa until that time and by the time I cleared up, washed and changed it would be at least 30 minutes later than I planned.




So my new routine is much better.  I get more sleep and my skin is looking great with the skincare routine I coincide it with.



Gym straight from work

Protein smoothie

Make tomorrow's lunch


Shower

Bed at least 1 hour before I want to sleep

Social media or read

Lights off around 10pm!




What does your evening routine look like?

Brunch

OMGeeeeeee I can't even explain how much I love brunch.  Isn't it just the best?  You legit get to eat twice as much bcos it's two meals in one so it's totally okay to stuff yourself and eat ALL the carbs.  I love going out for brunch with friends but I also like to make it at home especially at the weekends when I don't have time to make my 3 meals a day.

For example, on a Saturday I like to wake up around 9 and be in the gym by 10.  I don't like to eat before I work out so when I get back around 12 I make myself a big brunch. Currently I've been having Linda McCartney sausages with baked beans, mushrooms and hash browns.  Very British I know.

On a Sunday I like to be lazy and sleep in so again I won't eat properly (sometimes I snack on biscuits in bed, don't judge) until around 11am.  Sundays I think we deserve to be more carby so I'll go for pastries, bagels and lots of avocado.





How do you like to brunch?

5 Easy Healthy Vegan Snacks

When I decided to go vegan a few months ago I made sure I did a lot of research.  I actually went vegan about 7 years ago but never really did much research so ended up eating just as unhealthily as I was before.  So this time I wanted to make sure I was doing it properly.  My main reason for becoming vegan was for animal welfare but secondly because I feel it's a lot cleaner and healthier if you do it right.

Here are a few of my favourite recipes I found for snacks since becoming vegan.  I hope I can inspire you enough to maybe even take the plunge for a plant based diet too!  Literally any meal can be made vegan so you're really not missing out and these snack ideas prove it.  For more vegan recipes just check out my Pinterest board here.

















Please share any vegan recipes you have and let me know if you try any of these!
