Chickpea May-O

As someone who works out 5 days a week, while also trying to eat in a calorie surplus: to gain muscle and strength. It can be hard not to get lazy and solely rely on protein powder, when it comes to a post-workout meal (lunch). Which is why I like to keep a tub of this chickpea may-o in my fridge, for those times when I’m hangry and need food fast. Continue reading “Chickpea May-O”

Veganuary: Where Do You Get Your Protein From?

I get messages quite often from people, through Instagram, asking me to help them with vegan protein sources. So I ran a poll on my Instagram stories, last Thursday, to find out whether there were others who would like me to put together a blogpost with easy to find, basic protein sources too. And 98% of you voted yes – the other 2% were contrary meat eaters, who felt it necessary to vote nonetheless. Continue reading “Veganuary: Where Do You Get Your Protein From?”

2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

I received my annual blog report this morning and I have to say I’m more than pleased with all the love I have received over the last year. When I first started The Hungry Welsh Girl at the beginning of 2015, I never expected it to ever be viewed, let alone receive comments and followers. So I just want to take the time to thank you all for the love and support. If it wasn’t for you guys, I don’t think I’d have been as committed to The Hungry Welsh Girl blog, as I have been over the year. I am now looking forward to sharing and creating more recipes in 2016 and hopefully making The Hungry Welsh Girl, a bigger, better and even more successful blog, while celebrating its first birthday!

This year has gone SO quick and while I may not have achieved all the goals I initially set out to do, I still have made progress in other aspects of my life and because of The Hungry Welsh Girl and the support I receive on both here and my social media:Twitter and Instagram; my self confidence has sky rocketed. So, whether you have nailed the goals you set for yourself this year – congratulations 🙂 or whether you didn’t quite manage to achieve what you initially set out to do, don’t beat yourselves up; just take 2016 by its metaphorical balls and kick it up a notch, like I intend to do.

I’ll finish by saying, Thank you again for all the support, have an incredible New Year and I’ll see you on the other side. 😊

Shwmae Pobl…

I have been meaning to start blogging again for some time. I first started a few years ago; under the same name, but back then I wasn’t as confident with my recipes, or the way I ate. I was always trying new things and not being consistent. Now I feel a lot more secure in my knowledge of food and with how far I have come with my recovery. To put it in a few words; I suffered for over a decade with countless eating issues and when I thought I had recovered, I only found myself replacing one eating disorder with another. That was until I discovered flexible dieting; which is basically balanced eating. I love it. It has not only helped me recover from my restrictive eating but it has also given me a more healthy relationship with food and I no longer fear certain food groups, or foods deemed ‘unhealthy’. Now I see food as fuel and I use it to fuel my body for not only daily activities but also for my workouts; which I have learned to love more, now I have the energy and stamina to finish a 40 minute workout.

In this blog I will be sharing my recipes and experiences with food; both good and bad. They won’t always be 100% ‘healthy’ but they will be balanced with foods I enjoy and have learned to eat in moderation; as can everyone else. I will be sharing my knowledge, from my experience,  of flexible dieting/ balanced eating and how anyone can obtain this way of eating without feeling guilt afterwards. It is possible.

Well… That’s it for now. You can check me out on Instagram: @Happy.Hungry.Healthy
