How to ‘reset’ your diet after a long weekend holiday
Did I eat lots of chocolate and cheese on the weekend? YES.
Am I worried about it? NO. 🥕
Indulgence is healthy and you don’t need to be highly restrictive with your food intake or over exercising this week to compensate for the Easter weekend. 🐰
Just get back to the foundations of a healthy diet – stacks of vegetables, some good quality protein and a nugget of healthy fats to balance your meals. 🌱
I personally crave the simple things after a yummy weekend of eating with family so this plate of steamed veggies with a basic home made satay (recipe below) and some kraut is where it’s at.
Even better there’ll be some leftovers for lunch the next day. 👌
BONUS FACT: There are white potatoes here – yep white!!!! Did you know when they are cooked and cooled they are a rich source of resistant starch which can support positive changes in the bowel. 🤓So if you like them but have avoided them for way too long – please don’t, please let them have their place as part of a balanced diet. Steamed for eating on the spot or cooked and cooled to incorporate into your lunch the next day is best. 🥔
To make peanut satay: place all ingredients in a small saucepan on low heat, whisk together over heat for about 5 minutes or until smooth. Place in airtight container in fridge for up to 2 weeks. If stored in fridge you can loosen by heating slightly before using.
Hope you had a blissful weekend folks – no doubt some of you are stretching the dream until next week with a few more rest days in there too – enjoy yourselves!!!!! Jacq 😚
