In an attempt at healthy eating and to help with my problem skin, I am trying to focus on eating fresh, healthy, unprocessed foods, going to the gym and drinking plenty of water. I am also trying to avoid milk (which is so hard as a cappuccino drinker) and have been making my own ‘almond milk’, which of course is nothing like the real stuff but tastes much nicer than soy.
Of course, I have fallen from the bandwagon a number of times, but it has been 3 weeks now that I have been sticking to it (on weekdays at least) and I am feeling better so far. My weekend treat of a proper cappuccino really did hit the spot though, i just can’t get used to drinking coffee with soy, so weekday espressos it is from now on.
One of the super healthy things that I love to eat is fresh sprouts. I have been growing lentil and mustard sprouts to add to salads and wraps.
Apparently sprouts are incredibly healthy and full of nutrients, but I like that they are add some crunch and taste to any salad (the mustard ones are almost spicy). They also satisfy a little of that urge to grow a garden as they are easy to sprout in the kitchen.
Do you have any healthy eating tips or ways to stay motivated to stick to a health kick? Please share to help me out!

For my sprout salad, I combined:
Grilled eggplant and mushrooms sautéed with herbs and olive oil
A really good feta cheese and home-made lentil sprouts
With lettuce and other salad like ingredients
Topped with a poached egg and cracked pepper.
