Okay, maybe ten times is hyperbole… but it got your attention right?
Seriously though, sometimes the trick to sticking to a healthy diet more effectively is just knowing the right meals and combinations of foods that you can enjoy in order to save yourself time in the kitchen while keeping your diet nutritious and low in calories!
Here are some meals that will prove to be the perfect example of that…
While bread is a common source of simple carbs and can contribute a lot of calories.
If you want a sandwich but want to skip the bread, there are options! One such option is to slice the top off of two mushrooms (the big boys will work best) and then to use these in order to sandwich your filling. Not only does this work just as well to keep everything in place but the mushrooms provide tons of nutrition all of their own and are very good for you indeed!
There are many more breadless sandwich ideas out there. A simple one? Mix up some filling and then just wrap it in a large leaf of cabbage. It’s cheaper than bread too!
Greek Yogurt Pudding
Here’s a quick and simple dessert that is excellent for packing in the nutrition and keeping those calories relatively low. Simply take some plain low fat Greek yogurt, add some blueberries and add just the tip of a teaspoon of honey. When you mix all this up, you’ll be left with something deliciously sweet that doesn’t break the calorie bank and is filled with antioxidants!
As we all know Breakfast is important, but understanding what constitutes the “ideal breakfast” is the key to fueling your body with your Breakfast creations!
Here’s a delicious way to start your day that will give you plenty of energy and help you to stay full until lunch.
Simply take an avocado and cut it in half, removing the stone. Now mix up some tuna with a little low fat mayo and horseradish and then dollop into the hollowed out center. This will fill you with protein, omega 3 fatty acid, healthy fats and tons of other good stuff!
Getting creative with different ingredients keeps healthy interesting! Ever noticed yourself making an unhealthy choice because you are bored with what you’ve been eating? Me Too!
We all have a good bank of meals so try some variations on those to spice things up.
If you are like me, time is very limited and I am not working to die, I’m working to live! This is when you will find the value in Hexey meals! Hexey meals are like having your own personal “healthy” chef. Living a happy healthy life involves balance. Balancing all your commitments to others and to yourself can be tricky in this day and age. But your lifestyle shouldn’t have a negative impact on your health!
We are also lucky to have many options to balance our lives at our fingertips. More and more Australians are choosing to outsource some of those commitments, from hiring someone to cook healthy meals for us to hiring someone to sit at a table for 12 until you and your friends arrive (yes this happens)!
So there you go! I’d love to hear what you think if you decide to try these meals!
