Yoga 

Hey guys! So just a quick post to share my daily yoga routine with you all. I’ve always been a fan of a little home self taught yoga from quite a young age and along with the ‘Sun salutation’ I found this online and it’s amazing after a workout to stretch your entire body out! 

  I always feel so aligned afterwards, if that sounds crazy!? But give it a go – if you have a reasonable amount of flexibility to start with then it’s a good routine, if not then maybe start with doing the ‘sun salutation’ once or twice a day for a month and you will be surprised how much of a difference it will make. 


Peace out yogi bears! ✌🏽️

Happy friday!

image

Friday is here, although I don’t like to see myself as one of those wait for friday people, its still nice to see in the weekend with a smile, delve into relaxation mode (if you are lucky enough to not be working on a saturday)and put your feet up. I’m just as happy on friday mornings as any other day because mornings mean breakfast! And breakfast means COFFEE 🙂 anyway back to the point which was about my feature friday, I don’t have one ready for today, this week has zoomed by leaving absolutely no blog time.
But fear not! I have some fantastic products being shipped my way shortly for review, along with some prize giveaways for you lovely clean eating health machines out there! So as miranda says “bear with” and look out for the goodies to come.

In the mean time im always live “on the go” over on twitter and instagram @loriericeli @clean_bites @xloriex so give me a follow on there also.

Enjoy your weekend lovelies and I will try and fire out some clean weekend recipe treats for you all.

FEATURE FRIDAY -VividDrinks

image

First of all apologies for the lack of posts recently, half term is hectic for me but Happy Easter to you all and here is my feature friday for this lovely bank holiday weekend!

I was recently lucky enough to sample some wonderful caffeine treats from VividDrinks, im not one for turning down anything that involves greentea or coffee, especially one that explores  innovative, new ways to get my caffeine fix.

image

At a glance Vivid has everything that appeals to the eye when im out shopping for thirst quenchers on the go,small yet functional, healthy, mouthwatering flavour choices and packed with good energy sources to keep me going.Matcha tea has been one of my favourite summer drinks for a few years now, I tend to merge into my iced tea mode when the sun starts make an appearance so I was more than excited to carry these little beauties around in my handbag, along side my meal prep this week.

image

I have to say it was hard to choose a favourite out of these (grape and elderflower, lime, honey and ginger, pear and rhubarb) but I think if there has to be a winner, i’d go for the grape and elderflower! Alot of drinks you can buy can be a let down when it comes to flavour but I must say this wasnt the case with these, they were all delicious and even better when chilled or iced. If like me you are a health nut or simply looking for a healthy swap for your iced drinks this coming summer, I fully recommend you look out for Vivid drinks on the shelves!

Hooray for pancake day!

image

Yay! Pancake day is finally here, have you been eagerly awaiting this day as much as I have!? 24 hrs filled with guilt after mountainous stacks of naughty little rounds, piled high with butters and syrups…I know right? it still sounds so delicious even with the guilt and why not its one day of the year after all BUT if like me you are sworn to the life of clean eats, then we need alternatives and we need them now! There is such things as guilt free pancakes and they come to us in the form of protein! So here they are, enjoy your pancake day

 Ingredients:
2 scoops protein powder of choice
1 egg white
teaspoon Baking powder
Splash of Water
Blend all the ingredients in a blender and use as little water as possible and then you can add more if its too dry, it should be quite thick batter that can still be poured easily into pan.

image

Heat up your pan with a little coconut oil and pour in half the batter, protein pancakes are quite fragile so its best to cook them for as long as possible on the first side before trying to turn over.

image

Toppings:
Blueberry compote:
Blueberries, honey, water
Heat in a saucepan until stewed and water has become a syrup like consistency.

Banana, peanut butter, honey, cinnamon.

image

You can pretty much chuck whatever takes your fancy on top of your pancakes, these two are definate winners for me though.
