Easy Healthy Recipes – Week 1 ideas 

So here we go, it’s time for a reboot I think – well it is for me anyway. As promised here are my easy healthy recipes – a complete week of ideas – let’s call it week 1 reset 

This is not a complete plan as I believe in freedom to choose what you want to eat – so just some suggestions for you…. hopefully it can give you some ideas for meal planning

I find that if you plan you are more likely to stick to it! 

All nutritional information is on each recipe as a guide, so you can decide if you’re following calories deficit, SW, WW or just trying to get a little control back.

You can work out all the nutritional from the nutritional information on each recipe card (at the bottom of each recipe post)

Also I’m a calorie deficit kinda girl – for me it’s the only way to lose weight and it’s scientifically proven.

We need to limit calories and increase exercise – that’s it 

Now here’s the difficult part for me – you have load of ways to do this and loads of systems to follow 

  1. Calorie counting (my preferred way) 
  2. Slimming World Plan 
  3. Weight Watchers Points Plan 
  4. Intermittent fasting 
  5. Etc etc etc 

I therefore cannot point or syn everything – but this is a pretty healthy guide and a VERUY tasty guide

I’m a firm believer in lots of variety and lots of fruit and vegetables and fibre

I am not a believer in cutting out full food groups etc – but more limiting and controlling 

However you’ll have to do some work for yourselves – working out your way of counting

So let’s get started 

 

Healthy Breakfasts

I’m not going to list a breakfast recipe every day as you can choose, however here are some ideas and what I tend to have, just for inspiration 

  • Ryvitas or crisp breads with low fay cream cheese & tomatoes 
  • Slice of crustless quiche (frittata) 
  • Fruits Overnight Oats 
  • Cottage cheese (low fat) and crackers 
  • Fruit – I love a banana for breakfast 2 hard  boiled eggs (I take them to work) 
  • Omelette 
  • Bacon medallions with a poached egg 
  • Oat Pancakes & fruit
  • Light Yogurt and fruit 
  • Cold pressed juice – I’m currently loving Carrot Orange and Lime 

Oh the list is endless…
