Welcome to Spring Ladies & Gents!
The lovely stretch in the evenings for me is a breath of fresh air. It sure makes a change to walk out of work to day light.
I like the Winter but I am well and truly ready to say goodbye! It’s now 18 week’s to the 1st of June so I am going on an 18 week healthy eating plan that does not involve starvation. Who is up for joining me on the 18 week healthy eating plan?
I can guarantee you all if you stick to it with me you will be leaned down and looking really well by the time Summer arrives. So every week for the next 18 week challenge I am going to supply you with a weekly shopping list and a meal plan day by day. No excuses!
This plan is suitable for both men and women so no body has to feel left out. If you have a partner or a best friend I’d suggest joining forces and do it together. It is a lot easier when you have someone on the same journey as you. You can give each other moral support.
Here is just a small sample of an a typical evening meal on the plan. Stay tuned as I will post a plan for the rest of the week in the morning. You can do this it’s only 18 week’s of your life. Dust yourselves off put a spring in your step. Winter is gone and the new you is back 🙂
• 2 skinless chicken breasts (preferably free range and organic)
• 1 bag (65g) of wild rocket
• 1 large ripe avocado
• 50g fresh Parmesan
• 1 lemon
• Virgin olive oil
• Grill the chicken for 20 minutes until cooked.
• Meanwhile wash the rocket and place in a salad bowl.
• Remove the avocado flesh, chop into generous chunks and add to the rocket.
• Remove the chicken from the grill, cut into generous chunks and add to the salad.
• Using a peeler or sharp knife shave thin slices of Parmesan over the salad.
• Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice over the salad, along with a good drizzle of olive oil.
Why this is good for you?
Wild rockets is a rich source of folate, calcium and iron as well as vitamins A and C. It also help to fight the body against disease.
Avocados are a complete food and contain a multitude of nutritious benefits including essential fatty acids the ‘good’ fats! They are also an excellent source of carbohydrates, protein and dietary fibre. Interestingly they contain about 60 per cent more potassium then bananas.
To make this vegan/vegetarian… Simply leave out the chicken or replace with an alternative
