So I was thinking where to help in healthy eating. There is a lot temptation in that kitchen thread.

This thread will strictly on healthy eating.
I don't want to see mountain of Fufu and banga soup here cheesy.

Anyway, as we get older we begin to be aware of changes in our body. Some trying to loose weight, those trying to maintain weight. If you are trying to gain weight, abeg look for another thread.


No too much talk. Paste your food of # healthyeating.

basically let's maintain 30% carb, 30% protein 40% vegetable meal. And of cos fruits.

It certainly isn't easy when you get to a certain stage as your body's metabolism slows down. Now this is me trying to be a good girl at lunch time...

One slice of wholemeal brown bread with lettuce, (drained) tuna chunks in brine (as opposed to sunflower oil), cucumbers, an orange and half a litre of water. cool

And this was breakfast...

100ml of skimmed milk, 1 wheat biscuit, cherry plum tomatoes, cucumber slices and 500ml bottle of water.

Seriously, this feels like less than what my 3 year old daughter has for breakfast! but I'm going to stick to incorporating a healthy lifestyle and this involves healthy eating too.

No more fry-ups (eggs, plantain, yams) and no more fruit juices or coffee with 2 teaspoons of sugar and lots of (condensed) Peak / Carnation milk. I drink just water and I take my fruits as they come. Fresh and pure. Nothing processed anymore.

Is it easy? Hell no!

Hahahahahas. Trees growing in your stomach lol.

I noticed I lost some as s weight . I've been eating lots of leaves and beans with fruits, especially cucumber and avocado . my cloth are a little big on me now, I amend them before wearing. Mum and dad and my siblings even noticed I lost some weight. Funny I've not jogged for a week now.

Now I cook their own and my own differently.

eating healthy is actually harder than working out (to me). We're so used to eating junk that it makes weaning ourselves off them more difficult. sad

but I make it easy on myself. I have what I call cheat days or cheat meals. grin Once every 2 weeks (usually saturdays) I go all out on junk; every food I've missed and craved.

Though I now go without those cheat meals for a month atimes; hopefully a month will turn into a year.

This is just sooooooo true!

Lol @ cheat meals cheesy

You know it's easiest to keep on the straight and narrow path (food wise) in the mornings, afternoons, and early evenings. But from 7:00 p.m, temptation comes a-knocking...and I think that's when the body's metabolism rate is slowest. sad

I try to stave of the cravings with nuts and fruits but I do fall a couple of times. This was me fighting of temptation last night... a handful of unsalted cashewnuts cheesy cheesy

Cashew nuts are a good and healthy choice I just don't like the taste of nuts. sad

I've had times when my cheat meals turned to cheat week. But that's in the past. We thank God for that. cheesy


It sure gets easier and it's worth it in the long run.
Re: Paste Pics Of Your Healthy Meal Here. by Kimoni: 3:14pm On Apr 02, 2015
Hmnnnnn Chilli, should I really be here? Na me go carry last oooo

Like Babe said, eating healthy is much more difficult than working out. I would pee in my pants if Efe mistakenly invites me to her home for lunch/dinner. But tell me to spend 24 hrs in the gym and I won't even bat an eyelid.

Anyways, I love challenges so I'll start from today(so help me God) moreover, I need to lose my post preg fat.

I was never into fruits but I'll give these a trial-

Why na? grin grin grin

@ Moca: Yes, Cashew nuts are a healthy choice as long as you don't overdo it. Moderation is the key. I usually take just a handful in the evenings to take the edge off cravings...

Now I cook their own and my own differently.

Same thing here but it's punishment I tell you. Having to cook mouthwatering stuff for the family (including their fry-ups) while I have to restrict myself. Not fatty oils, no processed sugar, and minimal salt. Arrrrggghhhh! It's tough jare. Hubby doesn't help when he cooks our typical African soups with all that palm oil (Egusi, Ogbolo, etc.)

I remember one time eh...it wasn't with my clear eyes that I found ma self in da kitchen making serious poundo to go with his Egusi soup with stockfish and cow leg. Chei! grin grin grin

I've got some bags of pre-peeled, frozen, king-sized prawns, plantain, and ugwu. Is there anything else I'll need to make this apart from Maggi and salt?

How d'you make the sauce to go with this?
