This was shared on my facebook page some time back – 2 of my own recipes was published in the Daily Mail! I absolutely love creating new recipes, from scratch or by inspiration from other recipes. Cooking is no doubt one of my favorite things to do. Dream job would definitely be having my own cooking show! dream goal Continue reading “A SALAD YOU SIMPLY MUST TRY!”

Good Morning people.
The last few weeks, no, the last month has been filled with alcohol, sweets and a lot of dining out. My birthday was at the end of May, then 1-week holiday and then I had my sister visiting. I’ve been eating more than I would normally eat (and drink more than I normally drink) – however my weight hasn’t gone up that much, nearly nothing at all to be honest.
My weight has been set on 65 – 65.5 kgs for months now. I don’t do any special diet or eating patterns. I just eat what I want – but are conscious of my food choices and meal sizes. As you probably know – I HATE calorie or macro counting. I can’t deal with it and it’s not for me. I rather try to focus on eating nutrient dense foods and eat for health benefits rather than low calorie, high/low fat/protein/carbs.
So what do I eat? It fluctuates from week to week but here is the main foods I eat on an every day basis:
Dairy products: Greek yoghurt, Coconut milk(always in my coffee), mozzarella, eggs
Meat: Burgers(good quality beef), chicken, duck breast
Vegetables: Leafy salad, carrots, tomatoes, kale, spinach, sweet potatoes
Fruit: Avocado, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, apples, bananas
Grains/seeds: Rice(whole grain, basmati or jasmine), Quinoa
Other: Warburtons thins rye bread, 50% less sugar ketchup, Italian salad dressing, oat cakes, peanut butter, no sugar raspberry jam
There is, of course, a lot of other foods in my diet – but these are the main ones and what I would put in my shopping basket when food shopping.
I eat when I’m hungry and I eat until I feel full. Simple as that. Eating right can be very advanced or very simple. Sometimes is just easier to go back to basic and try to eat mainly fresh produce.
