Oh hello, all you Magnificent Martha’s
I hope you have all been the Bravest of Berties and have successfully tried your best to make it through another weekly routine of attempted arse disciplining. That being said, I also SINCERELY hope you have been quite tame with the stuffing of your faces too.
Nevermind that, but am I the only one who feels that one can be exceptionally well bahaved and stick to their very own exercise and meal plan throughout the week, but the MINUTE you take a whiff of a chocolate bar or inhale the muchly desired fumes of fermented grapes, your bottom has all of a sudden escalated in size and you have miraculously expanded by 5kg overnight?
That being said, I for one know that I have been a bit of a Naughty Nelly this week. I’ll be the first to say it, but if you can relate, then there is no better time than RIGHT NOW to pick ourselves (and our bottoms) up, let our arses know of its wrong doings and begin the process of whipping it back into place, and shape (for that matter).
This week, I have decided to share some of my meal recipes from my eating plan, as I have had quite a few Inquisitive Ingrids ask about what I eat, and I am ofcourse, MORE THAN HAPPY to share this daily excitement with you. Have a look at some of my recipes below.
The Marvelous Myrtle Smoothie
Fabulous Flipping Flapjacks
The Betty Breakfast
Homemade Chocolate oats
Baked Annabel Apples
2 scrambled eggs on 2 Ryvita Crackers with a handful of cherry tomatoes
All bran flakes with anonymous almond milk and a really cool banana
Lunch and Dinner options:
Practical Prawn salad
A lavish mixture of cucumber, cherry tomatoes, butter lettuce, carrot sticks, 1/2 block of feta, a handful of prawns with basil pesto, a few olives.
Spicy chicken, cauliflower mash and mixed veg
Each bowl consists of 1 chicken breast fillet, half a head of cauliflower mash (cooked cauliflower mashed up with a splash of almond milk) and mixed veg with celery, baby carrots and feta as a snack for that day.
Tina Tuna Brussel Salad
Each bowl consists of 1/2 a can of tuna with organic mayo, half a baby sweet potato, one slice of raw red onion, mixed veg with brussel sprouts (if you’re brave) with cucumber, tomato and feta as a snack for that day.

Tina Tuna consists of 1 can of shredded tuna in water, cucumber, celery, raw red onion, 1/2 a block of feta, organic mayo, cherry tomatoes, 1/2 a cup of cooked corn with balsamic vinegar as dressing.
Delicious wrap from Lekker in Kalk Bay
This is one of my meals from a lunch date with my mom this weekend. When eating out, I always opt for the CLASSIC Greek Salad (only because i know that there few calories in this meal, if im trying to be good) or I tend to secretly investigate the menu to find one of the healthier options. This wrap was delicious and pretty much a raw wrap with the ingredients. A little bit of potato salad on the side to curb the naughty cravings and some beetroot for the win.
Snacks: (at about 3:30/4pm)
A few Caring Carrots
Feta squares (half a block)
Celery sticks with peanut butter or hummus
An Adventurous Apple
A Bubbly Banana
Two spoons of peanut butter
Water is an absolute necessity throughout the day. I try keep it to a minimum of 2 litres a day and about 3.5 litres if I’m exercising. Go on, this is your one excuse to drink away!
Meet Wendy!! She is my 750 ml glass bottle of water. Super easy to refill and oh so friendly.
I unfortunately tend to make my breakfasts the most exciting part of my day. Not only does the thought of food help me get out of bed in the morning, but I am also on the go for the majority of the day. That being said, I generally eat the same meals for lunch and dinner because it’s easiest to pack and prep in the mornings.
I hope your week is off to a fabulous start! Feel free to be a Kind Kendal and let me know your thoughts. Summer Sandra is almost out to play, Ladies – just a few more weeks!!
