The husbie and I went to see a nutritionist, we’re already paying a lot of attention to what we eat, but in one or the other way we don’t really succeed in loosing kilos and… keeping the weight loss. The usual story no?
It’s a « change your mind, change you habits » program and it has to be done slowly, step by step. We have a new appointment next month and we each have three actionpoints. The husbie needs to take time for a breakfast (instead of skipping it), needs to write down what he’s eating and may not eat anymore after dinner. I need to move more (from 3000 steps a day to min. 5000 steps a day), eat slowly and limit the size of my dinner. We both need to reduce alcohol (once a weekend and max. 3 glasses) and if we go to a restaurant, stop the starter-main-dessert and limit it to 1 dish. A real challenge, we go for it!
We started this sunny saturday with a bowl of vanilla(me)/coco(him) yogurt with strawberries and lineseed. Always a topper!
Strawberries, a healthy snack, altough they say that fruit contains too much sugar. My opinion? We are talking here about natural sugars, which are way better then the sugars you find in pastries, crisps, candy,… So I prefer to eat some fruit in stead of loosing my patience and having all of a sudden a « pastry-attack » 🤪
And as a little treat, let’s call it « a touch of indulgence », I’ve added a thiny, little piece of chocolat. Nice for the picture, and also nice for my belly!
The husband is unexpected one day at home, so got out of bed to prepare him a healthy juice. Fresh strawberries and 2 oranges, in the blender for 1 minute, and there you go! Strawberry orange juice, full of vitamins…
One week since we have started our « healthy food program » and already a nice result, -3kg. We have a lot of positive vibes to continue. And don’t worry, we do allow us some treats. Friday evening we went out with friends and had a couple of glasses of cava and we enjoyed a raclette/grill evening. It’s all about finding the balance between enjoying life and eating healthy!
Today’s breakfast… strawberries. We have a strawberry-apple juice (no added sugars) and a strawberry-rhubarb muesli yoghurt. Nice start of this beautiful Sunday 🍓🍓
Here’s a good start to a good weekend. My best friend always talk about happy fridays and she posts every friday a funny picture. I’ll go for happy saturdays as from now. Nothing better than starting them with a nice breakkie. Some yogurt, some strawberries, some fresh mint. That’s all you need!
Just fab! Pancakes with strawberries and honey. Smiling faces all around in the house. And I have to admit, I adore the picture. Definately one of my best shots. So proud!
Day 2 of my healthy food program. Have to admit, I’m hungry and already in need of sweets… But we have the fighting spirit to go on! You should try out this combination, it tastes really nice. Vanilla yogurt with strawberries accompanied with fresh mint. Good food good life.
