WIAW - All about balance

First off, welcome to this weeks WIAW. For anyone who want to learn more or to join in the paaartay head over to visit Jenn at Peas and Crayons.





If you guys remember, I may have mentioned a few times that I am trying to increase my protein intake as part of some guidance I recieved from a nutritionist.

To sum it up, it was a pretty strict eating plan where I ate a lot of protein (meat, eggs, protein shakes) and no carbs (apart from green vegetables) or dairy. It was very restrictive and after 3-4 weeks I was noticing I was having insane cravings for really bad foods AKA maccas drive-through (eeek not good).

I decided that this was my body telling me that it needed more variety, I was so bored of meat and veg dinners and when I get home from a crappy day at work I love to relax and make a really amazing, delicious and healthy evening meal.

So I have eased up on my strict eating plan, I still eat pretty much the same during the day as it is pretty quick and convenient for breakfast and work but after work I arrive home and look forward to making something yum for din dins,  hopefully a few more recipes will be popping up over the next few weeks!




Woops I forgot to photograph my snacky snacks throughout the day - don't worry they weren't that exciting.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week - full of delicious food! To all the US peeps out there, Happy Memorial Weekend, loving the blog posts I have been reading over the weekend about your food and celebrations :)

  5. I think you can get adequate protein with balance, you don't necessarily need to get rid of one food group. There are all these diets and eating plans that eschew a food group but I find that the balance method works best for me.
