Now that Easter's over...



Here are a list of simple do's and don'ts to incorporate into your day-to-day lifestyle:

Do:
  • Eat well-balanced meals - include a lean protein (eggs, chicken, pork, fish, quinoa, houmous), complex carb (whole-grains ike oats and brown rice, beans, sweet potatoes) and healthy fat (olive oil, avocado, nuts, nut butters) into each meal, one of each of course!
  • Eat more whole foods - foods that come from nature (fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains)
  • Eat more vegetarian based foods - lentils, beans, almond butter, houmous

Don't:
  • Skip breakfast - this sets the tone for the entire day, if you skip you will set yourself up for over indulging later in the day
  • Eat processed foods - these foods contain so many chemicals that screw up your body's natural flow
  • Eat refined sugary foods/drinks - sugar that isn't burned turns into fat

An easy sample menu for you:

Breakfast:
Porridge with banana, flax seed, almond butter, cinnamon & honey
Scrambled eggs with 100% whole grain bread and avocado
Smoothie: 1 banana, 1 handful of spinach, 2 handfuls of frozen berries, 1/2 cup almond milk, 3 tbsp of oats, 1 tbsp of protein powder, 1 tbsp of flax seeds and add 2 medjool dates if you crave something more sweet. Blend together and enjoy.

Lunch and Dinner:
Grilled chicken or fish with brown rice and broccoli (any green veg will do)
Grilled pork with baked sweet potato and side salad
Vegetable chili with guacamole
Mezze platter
Large salad with quinoa, veggies and vinaigrette dressing
Brown rice pasta with spinach, peas and homemade pesto

Snacks:
Handful of almonds
Apple with almond butter
Houmous with veggies
A few turkey slices rolled up with swiss cheese
All natural yogurt with a few walnuts
