Merry Christmas one and all,

Every year I volunteer to cook Christmas dinner for my family as a tradition and this year was no different.

Here we have an all-butter, honey and mixed herb turkey with nut stuffing, sweet potato wedges, chestnuts and an array of mixed vegetables seasoned with salt, pepper, as well as various other spices.

Top tip when cooking turkey: take it out of the fridge the night before and slather it in butter (get it under the skin) and all the way around the inside (where the giblets are) and leave it to defrost in room temperature. COVERING IT OVERNIGHT IS VITAL. A plastic bag with holes in will do.

Then, a few hours prior to cooking the next day, add more butter on top and squirt honey all over it, adding sea salt, pepper, garlic and mixed dry herbs. Pierce it with a fork all over, and leave to soak.

Once the turkey has soaked up all the flavours, pop it in the oven for however long it takes to cook at Gas Mark 4 before taking it out, leaving it to cool, later devouring with the vegetables and cranberry or bread sauce and gravy.

Top tip for sweet potato wedges: cut them inot quarters length ways and sprinkle brown sugar, squirt some honey, add a dash of olive oil,  sprinkle some black pepper and salt then let them roast for 25-30 mins (or until soft). I included cracked open chestnuts in the tray for added flavour.

Love,

Before I get typing about this incredible new-to-me product that has changed my life, let me tell you a lovely story which probably – in fact – definitely won’t add anything to YOUR life whatsoever…

Hey guys and dolls,

I’m back and wanting to blog about a brand that I’ve been testing out for a while…

I’d like to assure you that this review on ‘Juice PLUS+‘ is 100% honest, and that I’ve not been asked to do this by anyone that works for or with the franchise.

Okay, so – without further ado (#ShakespeareDay), let me get posting and you to get reading about my journey before and after Juice PLUS+!

Hey guys,

Seeing as my Waist Trainer challenge didn’t go too well – I’ve decided to start an altogether new challenge whereby I drink one Superfood Smoothie a day.

I bought a NutriBullet last year and have yet to make the most of it… I mean, I used it last Spring/Summer but I just got bored soon after.

Now,  I’m planning to write a blog and document my Juice Cleanse with you… Let’s start with today’s #NutriBulletin, shall we?!

I bunged Wheatgrass, Kale, Ginger, Kiwi and Apple in my NutriBullet and blended until smooth. Before that, I added ice because I can’t drink it lukewarm – it’ll make me sick!

It tasted horrific, I’m not going to lie, but it’s beyond healthy! This is a detox smoothie that is so beneficial for you.

However, you don’t need to create smoothies with vegetables in… My friend lost a lot of weight by juicing blueberries and ginger every night for a month.

What I love about smoothies is the fact that they’re very filling… You can use them as a meal supplement, one that still packs in all the vital nutrients.

Remember to eat healthily and train dirty alongside this juice cleanse for optimum results!

Love,

Miamii
