We started as an idea and a dream 6 months ago, and we’re live and kicking 6 months later!
We all love a Full English Breakfast, but here it is…. In Salad Form! Say whaaat!
* 2 Medium/Hard Boiled Eggs
* 4 Strips of cooked Back Bacon (grilled is best)
* A Handful of Croutons
* 100g Cooked Mushrooms
* 250g Baby Plum Tomatoes
* 135g of Mixed Baby Leaf Salad
* 1 Cucumber
* French vinaigrette dressing (dress to taste)
1. Wash and dry the baby leaf salad and place in bowl. Proceed by washing the tomatoes and cucumber. Add the tomatoes and mushrooms whole, but cut the cucumber in half and scoop out the middle with tablespoon. Once you have done that, slice the cucumber before adding to the bowl as well as the egg and bacon.
2. Mix in with a drizzle of vinaigrette before sprinkling the croutons over the top.
Then there you have it, a guilt free salad influenced by the nations favorite Full English breakfast
We all want to be healthy, and we’re always told ‘eat healthy food’, ‘do more exercise’. Yes, we do need a good balance of a healthy diet and exercise but another important factor is sleep.
Getting the right amount of sleep for your mind and body is extremely important. During sleep, your body is working to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical health.
Nutritional Therapist, Kerry Torrens (full article here) gives some advice on how small diet changes can help you get to sleep.
So it’s been a few days and it has been a challenge.
“Eating 1 normal meal and replacing the rest with the Exante products has been difficult. Day 2 (didn’t even last a week) I woke up and had one of their shakes for breakfast. I chose Vanilla and mixed with 250ml of water. It didn’t taste too bad, you could just about taste the vanilla, but it tasted a little bit more of powder.
The shakes are filling…. for about an hour. I felt as though I hadn’t eaten for an entire day. I started feeling extremely light headed that eventually I had to eat something solid.
Finally after feeling like I was going to pass out at the thought of doing this for another 3 weeks, I decided that I will eat 2 meals a day, and have a shake and bar for dinner followed by a late evening snack of Cottage Cheese (it’s less fattening than eating anything else that late).
I haven’t lost any weight just yet but we will see – it’s only been a week.
Along with the meal supplements I am training everyday for at least 30 minutes. Cardio and Weight Training!”

First review will be on this Exante DIet: 4 Week Bumper Pack.

So far… The Thai Chicken Soup is…….. bland (but at least edible). We’ll keep you updated on the progress as the days go on!
