Treats, sweets and chocolate don’t have to be seasonal. You can definitely have them all year round (I mean every day) if you want them! Obviously, some people will just say “duh” and eat it anyway. This post probably isn’t for you. This post is for people that think that chocolate and cakes are ‘fattening’, bad for you and generally a once in a blue moon thing. Totally not the case. They’re obviously full of sugar and aren’t packed with vitamins but if they keep you sane in small quantities then they’re totally fine and I think, essential.
Eating healthy can quickly become boring if you’re in a rut. Being in a rut basically, means that you’re eating the same things and you’re bored of it. This will quickly lead to escalated cheat days and not sticking to your calories and therefore not losing weight or staying as healthy as you want to. Here are four ways to get out of your food rut!
Staying on track on a ‘diet’ can be super tough. That’s why I’m so glad that I’ve finally found a lifestyle that I feel like I can stick to! I’ve done my fair share of fad diets and workouts in my time so I finally feel like I’m there with something sustainable! Here I’ve got some tips on how to stay on track with your food and not cave when someone hands you a £1 McDonalds voucher in the street.
Healthy eating is all about the preparation. Here are five tips that I think make healthy easier (I won’t call it dieting because it’s not a quick fix!). I do all of these things in my day to day life to make eating generally easier because being hungry is just something I’m interested in! I hope they’re helpful.
As much as I love clean eating, and I eat clean 70-80% of the time and I love fresh food. But sometimes you need that sweet hit that isn’t just agave syrup and dates. Sometimes you need actual artificial sweetness to kick that sugar craving and these are my go-to treats for when I don’t want to go over my calories but need that super sweet hit!
I really love eating healthy, it makes me feel great and I’m such a foodie. I hate boring food and love to cook and create new things, so all in all, we get it, I love food! In our house we eat pretty clean, fresh and healthy 80% of the time and love a treat on a weekend (or a Wednesday, who’s counting?). The only thing is, cheat meals can add up quickly! For example, a takeaway pizza will set you back at least £15 if you’ve got a coupon and up to £30 if you haven’t got lucky in voucher land! This gets crazy and sometimes I think it’s really not worth it.
I’m definitely all about the 80/20 rule when it comes to my diet where I’ll eat pretty great in the week and have a couple of treats on the weekend. This is how we should all be, it’s healthy, easy to do and lets you be in great shape without feeling guilty about having the odd cheat meal.
