Getting back in the game

Hello Dolls!

The holidays are over and it's time to get back in the game, which means making healthier choices and working out. Today I want to show you how my diet has shifted from the greasy and delicious holiday mode to a healthier version. 

One thing that really helps me is to make soups for lunch. If you're the kind of person who gets bored easily and needs to have a different dish every day, you could cook 3 different soups that you really love and freeze them in portions. This way you have 3 soups or as many as you want on rotation. Or if you don't want to fuss with that, simply change the soup a little: on the first day have it plain, on the next with whole wheat or brown rice noodles, on the third with falafel and so on. Choose ingredients that you like and are somewhat healthy. For dinner try something new and have fun with it, make your dish as colourful as possible with loads of veggies. Try the 80/20 rule, where you eat 80 percent of the time healthy and 20 percent naughty. I don't think you should deprive yourself from sweets or pizza or pasta, just have them in moderation and whatever you choose don't starve yourself. Hope some of my dishes inspire you to cook something new.

Have a pink-tastic day!
Kisses.

  7. Hi there, I really need your help! My Youtube channel is a project for University and my grade for the course depends on how much engagement the videos/channel has.

  25. ugh this is tough to do and although I try and each healthy as often, I always end up somehow binging on a bunch of treats.. Hopefully I can work on this a bit more this year.

    The cooked spinach with egg looks really good! My mom use to cook spinach for me when I was younger and hated it but LOVE it so much now. I'm going to try this!

    Thanks for sharing:-)
