When it comes to weight management, it’s all about switching your body on to burn more energy, revving up your metabolism and eating the right kind of foods for your activity level and lifestyle. For weight loss to work effectively, it’s important that you look at it as a lifestyle, not a diet — a lifestyle that will ultimately help you to become leaner, fitter and healthier.
Losing weight and being healthy takes dedication. Eating the right foods, getting regular exercise and making the right lifestyle choices are the key ingredients for staying lean, fit and at a healthy weight.
The most important tip in any healthy diet or eating plan is to keep it simple, keep it fresh and prepare the food yourself. Your body will thank you for it with endless energy, glowing skin and vitality.
Below are three of my favourite recipes that help to keep me energised and nourished all day long.
BREAKFAST: Breakfast Coffee Shake
This smoothie is jam packed full of nutrients to feed your body on the inside so you glow on the outside. High in protein to keep you fuller for longer and promote sports performance, recovery and sustained weight management.
LUNCH: Nicoise Salad
This is the perfect Mediterranean Salad, a rich source of omega 3, protein and antioxidants. It takes only five minutes to make and it is perfect for lunch or dinner.
DINNER: Green Minestrone
I absolutely love eating it, not only because it tastes so good, but because I can instantly feel the goodness and the benefits to my body. I love it straight from the pot and often top it with chopped avocado and a generous drizzle of salsa verde.
