Yes to hard-boiled eggs! They are one of my staples to take out or snack on at home. If you pre-peel them all at the same time you can just grab and go!
Grated carrot and nuts and pasta....hmmmm....interesting combo which I am going to have to give a go now!
Funny, I'd never thought to slice an apple into rings before - I'd always done it in quarters. That alone is worth reading this for!
breakfast isn't breakfast without toast. I'll do fewer eggs, more toast and that avocado and that's me set until lunch. Very tasty!
I love mushy peas and am pleased to see a recipe for healthy mushy peas. I had never thought of just making my own. I will be trying this.
Homemade oven chips from potatoes are easy. But a lot of cheap oven chips you buy are also just potatoes and oil. . So I do question why I would bother making my own...
I would suggest making a huge pot of salad at the start of the week, like quino or buckwheat and add anny extras you like, and just take that in each day.
I would recommend blitzing any old bread slices in the foot processor then storing in a freezer bag, obviously in the freezer, and adding to it whenever you have more leftover bread. Then you always have a supply of breadcrumbs to make your homemade breaded fish.
My easiest and favourite lunch is hummus, pitta bread and vegetable sticks. SImple, cheap and healthy. A hard boiled egg is a good idea too!
no bin for egg shells? No problem - take them home in the lunch container and bin there. They aren't exactly heavy!
I'm not exactly a domestic goddess, but I find that fresh garlic lasts ages just in the fridge - ok, a little more work than from a jar but at under a pound for 4 bulbs, much cheaper!
Jarred garlic and ginger is good, but I would suggest even better is keeping fresh ginger and garlic in the freezer - you can use both from frozen.
Surely if you exercise enough you can eat carbs and still lose weight? There;s no way I could cope without bread, rice and pasta, and I manage to lose weight fine. People are so afraid of carbs nowadays, it's ridiculous.
Jim I had never heard that before about unwashed vegetables being a source of B12. That's really interesting, but as you say it's not something we'd want to do nowadays.
I started drinking a shot of this befpre I ate to help digest my food better. But it didn't work that well, and then I read about it eroding teeth enamel so I stopped taking it after that. .
When I started to think of eating wholegrain carbs as a good thing - as long as they were minimally processed - I started to enjoy eating them again. But for a while I did start to get quite unhealthily carb-phobic!
Half-price eggs were in Waitrose on Tuesday evening. Not sure if they've taken them off the shelves yet. Seems like a waste if so.
Yes you need to drink one with 'the mother', which I assume is something containing its original unprocessed goodness. I am sure that the organic one by Biona contains this, if that helps anyone.
Just remember there is more bacteria in your gut by about 10 to one of alien bacteria(include sea borne) than human bacteria
Having a quick look and I might be missing it wil all depent whether the vinegar is with the 'mother', as without there is no benefits whatsoever in taking apple cider vinegar so I have been told.
The Keto diet is an amazing lifestyle change if it can work for you. The reason I say can depends on a number of circumstances. I'm not on a keto diet at the moment although I am attempting a low carb diet. Perhaps my age is against me but possibly that I am Autistic and with it comes a lot of sensitvity and mental challenges that can prevent any diet succeeding. For many years I have had a sweet tooth and being in control has been a challenge. However at the beginning of last year I sustained a sugar free and Keto diet for six weeks persevering while in Ketosis with major side affects during the first two weeks, namely chronic constipation. Whereas other I know have not had this effect. I was also in a place where I was working from home and not travelling. Also the success of a keto diet may rely on how balanced you are in your personal life and any life challenges you may have just like I do. Amonst my many years of eating the wrong foods I have intolerances and am presently undergoing blood tests to find out what they are? I find that when I am out ant about I might end up eating a sandwich which is not exactly what I want to eat because it is not Keto friendly but I have to weigh in what else I can or cannot eat. I cant eat raw vegetables because my digestive system doesnt like it and I am not certain whether Im gluten intolerant. It comes down to how much energy I need and whether I can make it through the day sometimes with Brain fog another bi-product of Ketosis. Hope this helps
Most of that information isn't relevant to my health, but the last bit about reducing sugar levels caught my attention. As a borderline diabetic, this might be worth me looking into, so thanks for the info.
I find that apple cider vinegar helps me feel better if I have a bout of IBS. But it's not an instant cure, more a subtle settling down feeling.
