This sounds a bit better.
To get myself to eat healthy I like to make simple large portions of things and then keep it in the fridge so I can have leftovers.
Mix up some whole wheat pasta with some marinara sauce, smartground sauteed with onions and garlic, chopped veggies and nutritional yeast.
Quick stirfry with tofu, loads of veggies, and a sauce of soy sauce, garlic powder, and hot sauce (yum, had that last night.
Cook up a batch of refried beans and some spanish rice (really easy to make, I'll give you instructions if you want.
) Buy some tortillas, some veggies, salsa, and you can have burritos, taco salad, etc. for a few meals.
I tend to find that if I keep really easy fruits in the fridge like grapes, strawberries or other berries, chopped apples or melon, or plums (mmm my fave) I just snack on them throughout the day.
I basically try to sneak in veggies any place I can: on my sandwiches, in my sauces, dipped in some hummus throughout the day, etc.
But yeah, the most important thing is just to make sure you get lots of legumes, some nuts, a variety of whole grains, fruits, and veggies.
Hope you start feeling better soon.
I agree that your tummy pains are probably due to eating so much unhealthy food.
