I am not a nutritionist, but like researching new diets and understanding how people eat. The problem is that we, as a modern community, like fatty food and sugar. But, our bodies do not. With copious amounts of healthy food (veggies/fruit) and exercise, it is fabulous to feel invigorated and happy.
However, it is very difficult to do this isn’t it? The answer is to almost cut out sugar and bad carbs such as white bread, red meat, chocolate (although partial to some dark chocolate) for most of the time.
What seems to work is to eat when hungry. Devour lots of fresh vegetables, pulses, fish and chicken and the odd fillet steak and pint of beer for a treat. Stop eating when nearly full and only eat when hungry. Tricky with a family, but focus on the outcome and try the best you can.
Some people think eating a healthy diet is synonymous with being boring. This is ostensibly a blocking method and not facing reality. The food you eat does not have to be tasteless, in fact, far from it. What can be tasteless is the same tedious meat and chips dinner, week after week. Look on YouTube for inspiration and cook away.
This week’s lunches are pasta with chicken, vegetables or a boiled egg. All packed up again. This really stops the hunger and helps with the afternoon munches. My other piece of wisdom is this. Don’t follow recipes just go with the flow. Do some research for creativity and vision, then go for it!
Chicken/Egg Pasta Lunch
Pasta, olive oil, ground pepper, herbs, lemon juice with veggies (onions, broccoli, mushrooms, spinach, pepper)
