Delicious, easy, dairy free and pretty healthy! What's not to love?!
This is probably the hardest thing I've ever posted. Even though I'm not Day 1 Laura anymore, I still remember my emotions whilst taking these first photos. I still remember the fear of judgement I felt in my daily life, the shame around who I'd let myself become, the utter sadness that consumed me looking in the mirror at this version of me. That Laura was exhausted, miserable and lacking in any spice. I'd lost the vibrancy that I've always been known for, I had no energy and I was sick of not achieving the things I desired. In my eyes, I was failing at all aspects of my life.
- Have I done enough? - Have I trained enough? - Could I have eaten better? - Should I have trained twice a day? - I'm not where I wanna be.
The last time I embarked on a huge weight loss journey, my birthday was the tipping point of losing my motivation and slowly hitting the brakes on the process. So I was nervous coming up to this one, on a similar journey, that I would repeat my history.
I would go to the gym, to bootcamps, to fitness classes. I'd take up running and then realise I hated it, I'd lift weights in the bedroom of my flat. I tried pole fitness, and rugby and I went back to hockey. But nothing stuck. I was unhealthy, unhappy and unmotivated.
I made this for breakfast one morning during the first weight loss stint and ended up having it everyday for the rest of that week. It's that good. It's also super quick and an easy winner for any brunch date.
I'm sure you've all seen the 2-Ingredient pancakes all over the internet. This is a slight twist on that recipe, with some added oats. These are super easy, quick and delicious. You can pretty much tweak these to match any mood by changing the topping.
