WHAT TO EAT IN A DAY SUPER HEALTHY EDITION PT 3


THE CONCLUSION:

I'm not a nutritionist yet, but I guess the easiest/the best way to start a new healthy lifestyle is following these tips SERIOUSLY.


1. Stop eating after 6pm : especially if you sleep early, it's important to have an empty tummy -at least two hours before you sleep, as the metabolism and the digestion stop or slow when you sleep, and the food you eat right before you sleep won't be digested well !

2. Move your body: the good food is not really enough to be in your dream body shape, you need at least to do any kind of sports twice a week; to burn calories, improve your health, and to be flexible.

3. Eat wisely: don't prevent yourself from eating the food you love. instead, eat small portions, especially sweets and foods high in calories, and full of added sugar.

4. Eat only when you feel hungry: If you can stay still for several hours without eating, it's fine, you don't need you fill your tummy every ten minutes.

5. Have healthier alternatives :grilled instead of fried, homemade instead of fast food, whole grains instead of white, healthy rather than tasty, and wholesome food rather than sweet things, and the list goes on and on and on.

6. Complex carbs : they are found in
  • Low fat yogurt
  • Skimmed milk
  • Lentils
  • Kidney beans
  • Chick peas
  •  peas
  • Soy beans
  • Soy milk
  • Buckwheat
  • Brown rice
  • Corn
  • Wheat
  • Barley
  • Sorghum
  • Quinoa
  • Sweet potato
carbs anyway provide energy, but the special thing about the complex ones is they take longer time to be digested which means you feel full for longer time and you won't be craving food a lot,

7. Stop fizzy drinks: they are nothing but sugar, sugar, and more added sugar. they also make you feel lazy and idle. still want to drink them ?

8. Know what you put in your tummy: your body doesn't need to be filled with junk at all, so please thinks twice before you eat a nutty chocolate bar filled with caramel !

9. Water water water : nothing really better than water to be in the best health, water prevents dehydration, activates cells, and flushes toxins. - good job H2O

10. Proteins : Found in:

  • meat
  • eggs
  • beans 

 to build up muscles, to feel full as long as possible, and to prevent you from Muscle strain while doing sports.

11.  smoothies and juices : full of minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants to make you all good.

And this is the end of the health series,  I really hope you find your way to health and start a new lifestyle full of wellness and happiness, best withes, and see you next week.

WHAT TO EAT IN A DAY SUPER HEALTHY EDITION PT 2



BREAKFAST:

If there was a competition for who loves breakfast the most, I would definitely win, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, that I could skip lunch and dinner and it's fine with me, whereas breakfast is priority.

That's why I began to search, create, and recreate recipes, - healthy ones of course-

I have two cases of eating breakfast where I eat different things :

1. weekdays (when I have school) :

I do my best to eat before I go to school  -which requires waking up earlier-, normally I have granola with milk -I made a recipe months ago which you can check out HERE- but If there's no time or If I'm running out of stock, I will have a wholegrain bread sandwich which white cheese.


2. Weekends, holidays:

   When the day of comfort comes I really like to have a fancy breakfast, so I either create or try a new recipe, or I stick to my ultimate favorite breakfast, which is omelet, - or eggs in general. Again, I would win the first place if there was a competition for who loves eggs the most!

   My breakfast consists of : 2-egg omelet containing tomatoes, spinach, and cheese, a small bowl of granola, and any beverage depending on what I feel like drinking.



LUNCH:

   Normally, my lunch is based on what  mom cooks, yet in the days where I get to cook what I want, I love to make salad, full of yummy ingredients and nutritional values, here's a recipe.

Ingredients:
Tomatoes
spinach
avocado
white cheese
walnuts 
Dressing:
lemon juice
wholegrain mustered




DINNER:

   I normally don't eat dinner, I love to sleep with an empty tummy, but if I'm really craving food , I will eat yogurt, as I said in my previous post.



  And that's it for this part, the final one which will be the conclusion will be next week.
