Yesterday was quite the day of eating since arriving in Durban on Friday – the morning started of with a 3km run, follwed by 120 different sit-ups and crunches as well as a few push-ups!

I went for breakfast at around 8:30 and what a feast for the eyes! It was so hot – as always it seems – so I ended up having Belaire Suit’s homemade granola, greek yoghurt and loads and loads of fruit! It was delicious but I may have overindulged just a little bit, nontheless I grabbed 2 apples and – was on my way to the NWJ Bridal fair!

Like I mentioned; Durban is very hot as well as dry – this leaves me thirsty all the time! So I had about 3L of water as well as apples and a Yoga Berry (no dairy) Kauai Smoothie for lunch! Hmmmm!

This is still all good and well; what followed the evening may have been – what do they call it – carb overload! It was amazingly delicious though! Myself and a friend went to Cafe Jiran for dinner – we had wine, the most amazing veg lasagne I’ve EVER eaten follwed by what might have been the best ice cream and chocolate sauce in our existance!

It was a super fun night – the only thing is; I still have to have true Durban Curry! So, tonight I’m on the search for just that!

It’s drizzling today but nevertheless; I’m attempting at least a 2km jog! That ice-cream certainly won’t vanish any other way!

I’ll post some more pics soon!

So, as my first post in this {very exciting} venture of mine I am going to share the one thing most people DREADSnacking, nibbling, eating small quantities of food ALL.THE.TIME – whatever you want to call it!

Today I find myself in one of these situations – I literally cannot stop wanting to snack on any-and everything! 

O.k, so most people will say how extremely BAD snacking is for you – well; if you are snacking on small burgers, patries, chips and/or chocolate coated Pretzels – then YES SNACKING IS BAD FOR YOU!

If you are snacking on the following items you are on the road to a fabulous and healthy body:
(These are items I found has worked for me.)

1. Almonds

2. Apple(s)

3. Celery

4. Carrot Sticks

5. Bulgarian Yoghurt

6. Pretzels, rather than biscuits or chips

Personally – I love snacking on different fruits, especially apples, peaches, naartjies and strawberries.
You see – snacking ensures your metabolism stays on track because your sugar levels are up, running and in good condition. Now, don’t go ballistic and eat all.da.all.day.long!

Remember; everything in moderation!

Do you have a favourite snack?
