🍽 Silly Vs. Smart 🍽 ..... *Swipe and see below for 6 Smart Food Ideas to Help you Reach your Health Goals💪✨💖✨⠀
Have you ever skipped carbs at breakfast?⠀
Having a balanced breakfast, including carbs can help you focus and feel more satisfied before lunch.⠀
Salads don’t have to suck!⠀
Adding healthy fats (avocado, oils) will create a more nourishing and satisfying meal☺️You need fat to digest the fat soluble vitamins in the salad. So eating plain carrots won’t do you a whole lot of good if you’re hoping to absorb all that vitamin A.⠀
Your body is so much smarter than any dieting tricks - inc the carbonated water 💦 trick, to trick your body into forgetting it’s hungry. The only way to curb hunger and cravings is to satisfy them without guilt and move on with your day. The more restrictions, the more likely you’re going to #binge on the very food you were trying to avoid.⠀
If you want a salad, have one! However, if you’re truly craving something else, have whatever that is. Ignoring what you really want may only lead to bingeing later on😌⠀
5️⃣❗️YOU NEED CARBS, FAT & PROTEIN⠀
Enjoy a well-balanced meal, and you won't be feeling hungry later on. Your body NEEDS nutrients - ENJOY THEM🙌🏻⠀
Only YOU know what’s best for your body.⠀
You have the right to enjoy your meal, without guilt or shame, and without thinking how long it would take to burn those calories off. Work on learning to trust yourself around food as this will give you the freedom to enjoy Holiday meals and move on with your day🌸⠀
I have put these tips together with thanks to @wholesome.nutritionist, @caloriefixes & @drclaudiatfelty! They're all amazing👌⠀ #fat2fit#weightlossprogram#weightlossgoals#weightlosstips#healthandfitness#eatrealfood#weightlosssupport#mealprep#goodmoodfood#porridge#balancedmeal#ahealthynut#healthnut#healthyrecipe#diet#fitspo#fattofit#getfit#fatloss
This is correct portions for my body and my diet. Did you know a serving of Salmon is about 3oz’s with 23grams of protein. The typical fillet we serve ourselves is 6-8oz’s, which for my size is too much protein in one meal. But keep in mind dietary needs are different depending age, sex, weight, height and physical activity. To keep it simple, here is a visual example of what my plate would look like 1/4 protein, 1/4 carbs and 1/2 veggies. Very similar to the new #canadafoodguide .

After getting home from work the last thing you want to do is be thinking about having to go back out to the shops to go and buy dinner
Prep ahead and add some of these ingredients onto your shopping list this week for delicious healthy dinners
Which one would you go for?
I always do my best to try and incorporate as much healthy eating into the meals I make for my family as possible but many times it’s a challenge and I end up making two dinners. One for me and one for them. My husband is a meat and potatoes type of guy and the kids are all different. My 14 year old daughter and 4 year old son like a good mix of healthier foods and junk food like sweets but my 9 year old son will not touch a fruit or vegetable no matter how hard I try and only loves savory snacks. The tomato sauce in his pasta is the closest I can get. You can just imagine how expensive food is with the need to have such a variety. I need to find ways to incorporate foods we all like into our meals so I can avoid making two dinners.
Tonight’s dinner is fried chicken cutlets, one thing we all can agree on. I cooked them in avocado oil for a healthier choice and mixed almond flour into the bread crumbs instead of all purpose flour. I made @eatbanza chickpea pasta with creamy lemon garlic avocado sauce for me (recipe in stories) and marinara sauce for them along with an arugula salad and steamed broccoli (not pictured) as the veggie options. I’ve tried to melt cheese on the broccoli to get my 9 year old to eat it but he still won’t touch it. Basically he only ate the chicken cutlet and the pasta. I just have to keep trying! I would love to hear any ideas or suggestions you might have and what works for you in your picky eating situation if you have one? #ResolveToEatMorePasta

Need some new snack ideas? Here are some of my go to snacks that I love to eat
For me, having a couple of snacks throughout the day really helps me from getting high levels of hunger and pigging out on huge portions and sweet foods
I have found that having a small portion of nuts and a piece of fruit between my meals has really helped me feel satisfied and positively impacted my overall day of eating helping me to be more consistent !

The Health Dangers of Table Salt
Salt is a wonderful thing. Whether from the far reaches of the Himalayan rock mountains, to the depths of the ocean floor, salt is a beautiful and necessary mineral. 👀👍 It's an important element in keeping the proper mineral balance in practically all of the earth's living creatures.
In fact, every cell in our body needs salt. Our bodies rely on salt to keep good bone density, proper circulation and stabilized blood sugar levels. But how could something so wonderful and natural become a poison? 🤭Here are a few common misconceptions and dangers of salt.
🔹Salt vs. Naturally Occurring Sodium
"Table Salt" is a manufactured form of sodium called sodium chloride. While similar to naturally occurring rock, crystal, or sea salt, table salt merely mimics the taste of these elements.
Table salt is created by taking natural salt (or crude oil flake leftovers) and cooking it at 1200° Fahrenheit. Once the unprocessed salt is heated up to this temperature, it starts to lose the majority of the eighty important elements that are naturally occurring. Other naturally occurring forms of sodium, including sea salts and himalayan salts, are harvested and dried in the sun.
They are actually alkaline minerals that help keep us hydrated, balance our sodium-potassium ratios, as well as fill the body with powerful electrolytes. They also contain all of the trace elements needed for proper immune, thyroid and adrenal function (that are completely stripped out of table salt). Real forms of salt also boost the creation of digestive enzymes and juices that allow us to extract and assimilate other vitamins and nutrients from the food we eat⠀
Dzisiaj późny post, ale super ekstra! 😍 ( przynajmniej według mnie 😊). Ostatnio staram się przynajmniej 3 razy w tygodniu jeść SAŁATKI 🤗 mam w tym wzloty i upadki 😂 ale ogólnie staram się 😝 A ty jak często jesz sałatki? Ja osobiście bardzo lubię tą (polecam jeszcze dodać do niej komosę ryżową, będzie jeszcze lepsza!):
🥗1 łyżka octu jabłkowego, 1 łyżka oliwy, 1 łyżeczka soku z cytryny (do "wmasowania" w zieleninę)
🥗2-3 garści zieleniny (u mnie szpinak)
🥗Ulubione warzywka (u mnie ogórek, pomidor, marchew)
🥗Kapusta czerwona (jakakolwiek kiszonka się nada)
🥗Źródło białka (u mnie jajko)
But what do you even eat?
Basically anything I damn well please 🤣
It’s about Whole Foods in MODERATION not about Crap Foods or DEPRIVATION.
I promise, it’s not hard people just make it seem that way 🤷🏻♀️

On devrait faire ça plus souvent ❤ Et vous, vous appréciez les petits repas à la maison, tranquilles, avec vos amis?

12 whole green chiles (canned)
6 egg whites
3.5 oz cooked, finely shredded chicken
12 oz part-skim mozzarella
1/2 t cream of tartar
1 t garlic powder
1 t onion powder
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a bowl, mix together 10 ounces part-skim mozarella cheese with 3.5 ounces cooked, shredded chicken, 1/2 t garlic powder and 1/2 t onion powder. Set aside.
Whip the egg whites on high with 1/2 t of cream of tartar, 1/2 t garlic powder and 1/2 t onion powder until stiff peaks form. This took about five-ish minutes for my Kitchenaid stand mixer.
Spray a 9 x 13 glass baking dish with cooking spray. Spread half of the whipped egg whites on the bottom of the pan.
Carefully remove the canned chiles, split down one side and place a tablespoon or two (depending on the size of the chile) onto the opened chile. Fold the chile around the filling and press the filled chile into the mixture, lining them up like you would an enchilada. Make sure to press the chile into the eggs so the eggs envelop the sides of the chile. Repeat the process for the remaining 11 chiles, lining them up like you would if you were making enchiladas.
Spread the remaining whipped egg whites over the chiles and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes. Remove from oven, increase the temperature to 450 degrees, remove foil and return to the oven for another ten-ish minutes until the cheese on top is bubbly and the eggs are browned a bit. (See above picture). This is best served fresh from the oven (let it sit a few minutes to let the cheese settle before serving). However, reheated leftovers are amazing too.
