Weight Wednesday Week 6

Ok I think its safe to say I’ve given up on my diet! Im so annoyed at myself because I thought this time I would try really hard, but in all fairness my life is so stressful at the moment that I’m just eating takeaways and chocolate to help with stress which Is a poor excuse really!

Hopefully this week I’m going to try and get back on it so I feel a lot less bloated for the mountain this Sunday coming which I was hoping I would be 2 stone lighter by then but even though I haven’t lost weight I am still fitter than I was a few months ago with the walking that I do now. Normally when my partner walked up the shop to get something I would just get him to get what ever I wanted or I just wouldn’t go. Now ill walk up even when I don’t want anything, the trouble with that is that I walk up for chocolate when I want some but I have improved on that half! Im not so lazy any more and that was one of my bad habits. So even though I’ve put on a few pounds doesn’t mean that I haven’t still improved! I’m not back up to 24 stone 8 pounds which is so disappointing! I really need to remember the reason why I want to do it again and not just cave into the stress and business and start cooking and not eating chocolate again! Seen as though I’m lactose intolerant anyway.

So hopefully next week I will see an improvement! Hopefully walking up the mountain will help shift a few pounds as well!

Lots of Love

Vegan Pancakes!

It’s Pancake day very soon so i thought i would share with out a completely vegan recipe for pancakes. Iv’e been trying to cut lactose out of my diet and I was really sad knowing that pancake day was just around the corner so Iv’e had to think of an alternate way to still enjoy pancake day!

So here’s my recipe for Vegan pancakes!


Ingredients  

150g Plain Flour

2 Tablespoons of Casting sugar ( or normal sugar )

1/2  Teaspoon of baking powder

300ml Of Soya Milk or Water

1 Tablespoon of oil


Method

Start of by sifting the flour,sugar,baking powder and salt into a large bowl then in a separate bowl whisk together the Soya milk and oil together. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the Soya milk and oil. Stir simply with a spoon until blended all together. Bearing in mind even though you sifted the dry ingredients lumps are still to be expected! Now your pancake mixture is ready!

Heat a lightly oiled frying pan or you can use butter ( i prefer butter because i feel it tasted better and its an easier clean up after! ) pour the mix into the frying pan to the desired size pancake. Wait for the pancake to be dry around the edges and then its ready to be flipped! Your better off making it loose underneath before trying to flip it just so it doesn’t get stuck. Cook the pancake until its brown on both sides. Repeat until all the mixture is gone! It usually makes up to 5 pancakes.

You can also add spices into the pancake mixture to give a little more of a kick like cinnamon, mixed spice you can also add frozen or fresh berry’s!

The mix can also be multiplied to make even more pancakes!

Hopefully you can now enjoy pancake day even if your a vegan or just someone suffering with lactose intolerance!

Hope you all enjoy pancake day!

Lots of love
