I’ve just read Eat, Nourish, Glow by Amelia Freer, what an eye opener – never really thought about nutrition in this way. We are taught to cut out fats, lower our cholesterol and count calories. I have been doing this and recently lost a stone, but now I’m stuck. Having read this book, it has made me realise why I’m stuck and that by eating little and often, I am actually doing myself a disservice. Clean eating is very popular right now, so if you have any recipes, please do share them. Following advice from a friend, I’m not going to implement everything all at once, I am going to phase myself into my new eating ways and make them habits. This week is partly inspired by the book, but I went to the butchers and bought some meat, so it needs eating
This week as our meal plan for part of the Meal Planning Monday linky, here is our plan:
Monday – Steak burgers with horseradish and chilli – the butcher had just made these and wanted some feedback, so how could I refuse. I’ll have mine without the roll with sweet potato chips.
Tuesday – Chilli baked potatoes, well I’m going to have a small one and bulk up on the salad
Wednesday – Venison steaks – We got these from the butchers and they look really yummy.
Thursday – Chicken strips marinated with chilli, lime and oil, served with salad and sweet potato chips – This is from Eat Nourish Glow book and it looks so lovely.
Friday – Mushroom tagliatelle – This is a recipe that we have adapted over time and it is a staple now.
Saturday – Pot Luck dinner – we have so many unlabelled things in the freezer that need eaten, so we’ll be using these up with a salad
Sunday – Roast chicken on Sunday – Going to get an extra big one so that I have portions for my lunches next week.
And that’s us for this week. If you have any suggestions on other things we should try, comment below and let us know, I love hearing what other people have it gives me real inspiration.
