New day, New habits: Day 37

Breakfast: you know the drill…yoghurt and fruit – though no honey this time – I need to start getting used to no sugar.  Once you are used to it, you don’t miss it, but the more you eat, the more you crave.

Exercise: 25 press-ups, 60 Russian twists, 40 squats with weight

Lunch: Bae and I cooked a light, healthy lunch for his mum, who came round today.  I had made and tried Gordon Ramsey’s crispy beef lettuce wraps once and they were fun to eat (and delicious, so I thought I would try to find a good chicken version.  The first hit on Pinterest was for the PF Changs (a chain Chinese restaurant in USA) version – I have tried it, and it is pretty tasty, so got the recipe and headed to Tesco to get the ingredients.

Some kale crisps for a pre lunch snack

Sweet Potato fries/chips

The chicken wrap mix

Tomato and avocado salad with a drizzle of balsamic reduction

Really simple, and you can probably improvise with ingredients.


  • Chicken (will be chopped into pieces)
  • Hoisin sauce
  • soy sauce
  • rice vinegar
  • spring onion
  • regular onion – we keep some chopped in the freezer
  • garlic – we keep some chopped in the freezer
  • fresh ginger (I used ground and it was fine)
  • sesame oil
  • grated carrot
  • Baby Gem or Romaine Lettuce

Method – mix together the wet ingredients, then add that and the onions, garlic and carrots to chopped chicken (you can marinate for a bit – I did for 30 mins and it was great) and fry in a pan until it’s done – See? Simple!

The finished product

Dinner: prawn and avocado cocktail with lettuce and waaaay too much marie-rose (see: ketchup and mayo mixed together)

a healthy drink – apple and mango (not from concentrate)
