Since lockdown in the UK has relaxed a bit, I have been feeling really unmotivated and have noticed a lot of days in the week I am feeling low.
I thought it was just me, but after asking on my stories on Instagram I found that 99% of us are feeling the same.
So my question is have you been feeling low and unmotivated?
Realistically it is going to take time to readjust to getting back to life how it was before. It has been an incredibly stressful 14 months since Covid started and it’s unreasonable to be expected to just fit into your life as before.
We need to be kind to ourselves and acknowledge what we have all been through. It will take time….it will….and that is ok.
Struggling as a Gluten Free Vegetarian? Look no further! Try my top 10 GF Veggie convenience foods.
When I first became GF I really struggled to find food out there that were both veggie and GF and that I could buy rather than make from scratch. I do tend to make most food from scratch but I also like to have things in the fridge or freezer that I can stick in the oven every now and then.
Do let me know what you think of my top 10 and if you have foods that you can recommend , please leave me a comment below.
I made this stunning recipe from the Wagamama feed your soul book. The recipe is plant based and I bought some gluten free oats to use.
It is so delicious I had to share!
50g rolled oats (make sure they are gf if you are gf)
300g coconut yogurt
For the fruit syrup
3 tablespoons maple syrup
Juice of 1/2 lime
50g fresh or frozen mango diced
1 passion fruit flesh scooped
Pinch of chilli flakes
2.5 cm piece of ginger (I didn’t put this in as I don’t like it)
Add the maple syrup, 3 tablespoons of water and the lime juice to a small saucepan over a medium/low heat. Add the mango, passion fruit flesh ginger and chilli flakes. Stir and cook gently for 2-3 minutes until the sauce turns into more of a syrupy consistency. You can add more maple syrup and water here if you like. I didn’t think it needed anymore.
To make the porridge, add 200ml of water into a small non stick pan with the rolled oats. Cook over a low heat until it bubbles and thickens. It won’t take long just a few minutes.
Take off the heat and mix through the coconut yogurt and top with the fruit syrup and fruit.
Enjoy! It really is delicious and you could add in any fruit you have in your fridge.
