So as I have mentioned several times, after having Fletcher, things in my body are still a
Since after Fletcher was born and then with Easter only a month after, I had been living off people's delicious and generous baking, chocolate gifts, Easter eggs, chocolate, and a bit more chocolate and baking... YUM! My excuse was that I was breastfeeding and although this didn't exactly make me gain weight, it didn't help to loose any or tighten up all the wiggly jiggly bits... DOH! I totally think it's about time someone invented the chocolate diet... I would be amazing at it!
So here's what I've been eating lately to help improve my diet and stop living off chocolate, baking and sugar...
|Breakfast of champions!|
For breakfast I LOVE me some oats. I put cinnamon, which has numerous health benefits, into my oats, then I serve with natural unsweetened yoghurt, mixed berries or blueberries and some linseeds or almonds (not pictured) and a spoonful of craisins to give me a little bit of sweetening. Sooo good, I never get sick of this breakfast and it has a good balance of carbs and protein to keep me going until lunch (although I do normally have a small mid morning snack anyway).
My husband loves himself a good bit of meat so we generally eat some meat every night, however I have been getting into the odd chickpea or lentil curry... Delish and great as leftovers for lunch the next day too.
I have been getting the 3 o clock sugar cravings too so to curb those I eat dates and peanut butter - that's a treat, celery and peanut butter (yip, I love me some PB), carrots and celery with hummus, or some natural yog and berries. All good afternoon snacks to get you through until dinner time. But I have to make sure we don't have any real treats in the house or I have a tendency to reach straight for those... Major sweet tooth!
What are your favourite healthy meals or snacks?
How to you curb that mid afternoon sugar craving?
What is your biggest food weakness?
Mine is chocolate or pretty much anything sweet. I am a sucker for desserts!
