Christmas Cookie Exchange!!!!!!!

Hello all, well didn't this day turn miserable?!
This morning was dull but now its just wet and miserable but being inside warm on the sofa makes it all good. I've had a great start to the week, nice food, a crazy workout and clients to train have made it fab : )

I had a client to train at 6am and knowing I had lots to do straight after I had a mini breakfast of apple puree, cranberries, almonds and pumpkin seeds, this set me nicely : )

When I finally got home I made a late breakfast, smoothie and bacon to dip! 
Ha love it!

I also had a big coffee before getting some client work done

Lunch time came and I wasn't really hungry for a meal so I had some carrot sticks with tahini to give me some workout fuel!

Day 2 of Insanity done, jeez sweaty mess doesn't describe it!

I started making lunch pretty late so threw together a quick meal, sardine omelet with steamed veg then a while after I was out and into the rain to go to train some clients

When I got in it was dinner time. I was recently sent some Cirio passata to try, I love passata so couldn't wait to crack this open. This passata comes in a really handy plastic bottle too so its easy to store in the fridge and far less messy than the cartons big thumbs up! I love the taste of this passata too, it went with my dinner fabulously!

I used it as a base to make some Moroccan lean beef mince and veggies. Wow yummy, this was so good. I will definitely be adding this passata to my shopping list : )

Right now to what you've all been waiting for..........

Christmas Cookie Exchange!!!!!!

As I mentioned yesterday if you read my blog you know I like to set up a cookie exchange among us bloggers now again and as the festive season is upon us I thought why not?
