Sunday is family day for the McConnachie’s.
We focus on having fun, laughing and relaxing, and of course enjoying our food.
Each day is the same for us in the morning. We take care of the fundamentals of our health and wellness. We drink water, take our vitamin and mineral supplements, move our bodies around, do our mindset and breath work and then we have fresh juice shots and our vegan protein power smoothies.
That’s our routine every day 7 days a week. It works well for us keeps us energetic and healthy and allows us to ensure we are consuming a large number of nutrients.
It’s also convenient, as the smoothies take minutes to make and as it’s done daily we are sound in the knowledge that our bodies are being well looked after and our health is taken care of.
Lunches are fresh soups, salads, eggs, and again are the same most days.
Healthy, wholesome, delicious, nutritious foods make for a strong body and relaxed mind which produces a powerful immune system and a lot of high-frequency energy. Remember routine & rituals = results.
On a Friday, Sunday, and Monday we have free food in the afternoons. As the restaurants are closed just now (June 2020), it’s all home-cooked.
Free food is any food we want. It’s not as highly nutritious as our day-to-day meals. It’s tasty and enjoyable to eat, and lots of fun.
For me it’s all part of our healthy balanced lifestyle.
Sometimes we enjoy burgers or pizzas like the ones in my Wholesome Homemade Pizza blog.
Other times it’s pasta or sourdough avocado bacon stacks and every Sunday it’s a full roast chicken dinner.
A few weeks ago I was starting to feel it was getting a bit repetitive so we decided to try loading up giant Yorkshire puddings and the outcome was delicious.
The ultimate Yorkshire puddings the process
- Oven roast the chicken.
- Cooked the roast and mash potatoes
- Cook the broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and green beans
- Heat up the Yorkshire’s and prepare the gravy
- Once it’s all ready strip the chicken I like to pull mine with 2 forks.
- Spread the mash potato evenly across the Yorkshire pudding.
- Sprinkle the chicken across the mash.
- Break up the roast potatoes and place them in.
- Put on the broccoli and cauliflower cheese.
- Put in the green beans and carrots.
- Then drizzle with lashings of steaming hot gravy.
- Season and enjoy.
It’s delicious and the boys love it as well. They eat every last bit.
Give it a try yourself and I’d love to hear how you get on making and eating yours.
Until then next time
