I don’t know about you but lately I’ve been feeling a little…bleurgh. There’s no other way to put it. I’ve been suffering from intense back pain for the majority of this year. I’ve also been experiencing what can only be described as a groggy sloth-like state. I get plenty of sleep and then battle to wake up in the morning and feel lethargic and exhausted all day.
One of the things I notice has a direct correlation to my grogginess is unsurprisingly the amount of sugar I eat. When I’m baking my little heart out and enjoying the creations that come out of my oven a bit too much I tend to get really sluggish.
So, for one I restocked our pantry with some pretty awesome looking dried beans and whole grains and jammed packed our fridge with fresh vegetables.
I’ve also seen some recipes bouncing round the intertubes have been inspiring me to clean up my act a little and I thought I’d share them with you in case you’re looking for some delicious and healthy inspiration too. Happy healthier eating!
