Today I’m setting up my goals towards a healthy lifestyle.  Having a crash diet really don’t work long enough for me, so I decided to have a food diary :deal:to list down my eating habits for a day. This helps me being conscious on what to eat and have healthier choices. 

 

:vebo::vebo::vebo:

 

First in my list is to put down my fork in between of my every mouthful of food. This prevents me from over-eating, having digestion problems and of course this allows me to chew my food properly.

 

Maintaining Iron on my diet is a big factor. Iron is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies; this may result to irritability, lack of concentration and tiredness. So it is a must to have 3 dried apricots a day as an alternative to two serving of lean meat a week.

 

Have some raw vegetables in every meal. Aside from keeping it crunchy, cooking may lose the vitamins and minerals in vegetables.

 

Lastly, DO NOT skip meals. It is very important to eat 3x a day to maintain a healthy body and to keep the balance of blood sugar level in the body. This will keep the mood, concentration balance, energy, and strengthen stress tolerance of an individual.

 

 

 

How about you guys?..

I don't really have a food diary.

I have food goals though. I want to cook everything in Sarah Kramer's La Dolce Vegan, at least once....Maybe I'll make it a New Years resolution!

But other goals include:

-Adding spinach whenever I can. Most dishes can do with a bit of spinach thrown in there, it's meant to be good for Iron levels, so I figure that's a good start.

- Drinking more tea with/after meals. Warm liquids are meant to aid digestion, I've often found it helps if I drink tea after a meal. But I never seem to get around to actually making tea.

-Drinking more water because I just need to!

Drinking tea has so many health benefits that is why I once tried to add it in my daily routine. I used to drink tea at least once a day, it makes me fell being cleanse. However, I failed to follow it after a month and instead,I drink warm water every after meal. I believe drinking warm drinks instead of cold drinks helps me burn my stored fats.. ;)
