If you're currently floundering under a mountain of Cadbury's Quality Street wrappers and mourning the fact that your favourite jeans no longer fit, then it's time for a big old detox.
Yep, that's right. Now Christmas and the New Year are done are dusted (I know, I know, depressing isn't it?), it's time to put away those chocolates and put down that fizz and get thinking about that body you've always dreamed of.
We're such killjoys, aren't we?!
But for anyone who's thinking of joining me in kickstarting a new, healthier regime (and, believe me, I definitely made the most of being in expandable maternity jeans over Christmas!), then I have a real treat on the blog for you.
Today, I'm bringing you some healthy inspiration in the form of my best recipes of 2013. In fact, it's even better than that - I present to you lots of healthier versions of sweet treats to keep you on track.
These are some of my favourite healthy, 'clean' recipes that won't kill the diet and won't cause your waistline to expand. So if you want to stay healthy but you don't want to live off rabbit food, then get clicking and start baking with these wondrous, tasty treats.
LOVE this healthier version, made from Lucy Bee coconut, honey, peanut butter and dark chocolate. Simply add less honey to make them really, really good for you!
Made with Lucy Bee Coconut and without refined sugars, this 3 Ingredient Chocolate can be as dark or as sweet as you like. I've taken to making mine with only one tbsp of honey for a true, guilt-free indulgence.
Cinnamon Nut Crunch Granola ticks all the boxes. Filling, sweet and oh-so-moreish, I have it morning, noon and night. But the lack of refined sugars and the health-boosting nuts (not to mention the cinnamon, which balances blood sugar levels) make this one healthy treat.
This chocolate protein cake recipe was a complete and utter accident, but I'm so glad I discovered it! Made with protein powder, my favourite Lucy Bee, raw cocoa and nut butter, this is a brilliant treat post-workout. Better still, you can whip it up in the microwave and it's ready in minutes!
Unbelievably, Sweet Potato Brownies are just as yummy as they look. In fact, no one will guess the secret ingredient at all. If you have a sweet tooth, these will fast become your new best friends.
Who knew that cauliflower was so versatile and could be so darn tasty? Not only does it form the basis of my favourite Egg-Fried 'Rice' (see below), but it also makes an amazing pizza base in this amazing recipe for Cauliflower Crust Pizza.
My hubby absolutely adores these Dark Chocolate and Blueberry Protein Truffles. Made with delicious Super Protein Blueberry powder, you'd never ever guess that they were good for you. Naughty and nice, all in one bite!
So now you've tried Cauliflower Crust Pizza, you have to try Cauliflower Egg-Fried 'Rice' too. You'll be amazed (and fooled) by the secret ingredient - it's tasty enough that no one will ever know the truth!
This Coconut Chia Chocolate Pudding is one of my favourite indulgences. Packed with omega-3 bursting and energy-boosting chia seeds, this is a fantastic pud to serve up when you want something sweet, but without the sugar or calories.
