Jasmine swears that her meat-free lifestyle is responsible for her health, claiming it gives her a major energy boost. “I lost all my baby weight much sooner after my second pregnancy (as a vegan). I was back in my jeans after two to three weeks!” she told Your Healthy Living. “My skin is much more naturally glowing and youthful. My digestion is infinitely better and I feel like my body is able to much more effectively process and utilize the nutrients in my food. It’s difficult to describe, but I feel cleaner on the inside, as if my arteries have been cleaned.My conscience is clear, the benefits of which cannot even be quantified they are so great, and I live peacefully knowing that I’m doing as little harm as possible to myself, the planet and the animals. “
In 2019, Jasmine mostly slimmed down by making a few lifestyle changes. “Can you spot the difference? One was in August, and one is now! I’ve lost over 20lbs since I began exercising again 5 months ago, along with eating more whole #vegan foods and less junk, smaller portions, less alcohol, fewer snacks like crisps and biscuits, and definitely a lot less bread,” she captioned this before-and-after on Instagram.
Goal setting is a big part of Jasmine’s stay-fit success. “I feel great and I’m sticking with it, slowly but surely getting to my goal. A lot of people have said I’ve lost too much weight and I’ve lost my curves… well hopefully now you’ll see that is not true! Both photos are un-retouched! I’m hoping this will motivate those looking for a long term lifestyle change! And thanks so much to all those who have inspired me!” she continued in the Instagram post.
Jasmine detailed her daily diet to Your Healthy Living. “Breakfast will either be marmite and avocado on granary toast with tomatoes, or porridge with seeds and raisins made with cashew milk. Lunch might be soup – I’m especially partial to spicy lentil soup – or a wrap with salad, falafels, sun dried tomatoes etc. Dinner cooked at home could be a veggie curry and rice, chilli sin carne, my famous mushroom risotto, sausages and mash, spaghetti bolognese etc. Something different every day,” she said.
Jasmine prefers preparing her own meals. “I love cooking when I’m at home,” she told Your Healthy Living. “I really enjoy veganising classic dishes like some of those mentioned above. We enjoy our food at home and like hearty meals that leave you feeling satisfied but not stuffed. We eat lots and lots of vegetables, so vegan fajitas with homemade salsa, guacamole and vegan soured cream always goes down well, or for real comfort food, my vegan shepherd’s pie is a hit every time.”
Jasmine also tries to exercise as much as possible. “I’m only just getting back into exercise after some time off, and I have to say I still hate the gym as much as I always have. I find it really hard to motivate myself and so I find group exercise, such as classes , much more fun and easy to motivate myself,” she told Your Healthy Living. “I used to be a fitness instructor, so working out was my job. So for me there is nothing better than a really great challenging group exercise class like aerobics, dance, body pump, Pilates or body combat. I have joined the David Lloyd Club in Purley, near to where I live, and luckily there are so many fantastic classes to choose from. I’ve already lost 8lbs.”
“My top tip for healthy living would be to love yourself,” Jasmine told Your Healthy Living. “We all go through times when we are motivated to eat healthily and exercise, then go through other times when we have different priorities in life. Stressing over being healthy will not make you healthy. I would also recommend mindful eating. Ask yourself whether you are really hungry or maybe just thirsty? Savor each bite and eat food that will satisfy your cravings, not just momentarily.”
