Inspired by my hero, mentor and BFFL 'nutrition by natalie' I have started my own health and nutrition blog. Follow me in my journey to weight loss and well being. I will be posting my favourite healthy treats and tips as well some of the greatest Nutrition by Natalie videos ever recorded.
• a small bunch of radishes
• 1 red onion
• ½ a Chinese cabbage
• a small bunch of fresh coriander
• 1 fresh red chilli
• 1 fresh green chilli
• a 2cm piece of fresh ginger
• 2 limes

Wash the radishes well. Peel and halve the red onion. Shred the radishes, red onion and Chinese cabbage in the food processor. Tip into a serving bowl. Add the bunch of coriander and the chillies (stalks removed) to the processor and whiz. Peel and crush in the ginger, then tip into the bowl.
Put the slicer attachment into the food processor. Peel the ginger and put it into the food processor with the chillies (stalks removed), lime leaves and most of the coriander. Crush in 4 unpeeled cloves of garlic. Halve the lemongrass and discard the outer leaves, trim the spring onions, and add both to the processor. Blitz to a paste, adding a good drizzle of sesame oil and a good few lugs of olive oil as you go.
I’m really craving chocolate but I’m posting photos on tumblr instead.
I asked my boyfriend if he thought I’d put on weight and he said
“Yes. You know you have.”
I’ve put on 15kg since we started dating.
It’s kinda his fault - as I was a vegetarian but started eating meat as it made it easier to eat together. Slowly all my dietary rules went out the window.
In the last few months I was emotionally eating at work a lot. Every time I got stressed I was allowed to have fish and chips or giant cheese burgers and fries for lunch.
I also started eating sugar again. I order dessert after dinner and take photos for my facebook wall. It was kinda romantic sharing delicious desserts with my boyfriend.
I hate being fat, I can’t fit into about half of my wardrobe and I have an clothes collection. It’s summer soon so I can’t hide behind my cute little jackets anymore.
Starting to lose weight is always hard.
