It can be hard knowing what to prepare for a meal when you’re on a healthy eating kick. You can get lost in the calories, fats and food group combinations- I know I do. Thing is, not everyone enjoys the same food and it can be hard to come up with meals that are both healthy and enjoyable. You shouldn't have to compromise food you like in favour of what is deemed to be 'better' for you.
Everyone tends to feel that January pressure to get back to whatever shape they were in before Christmas came around to tempt us all with endless amounts of chocolates, Christmas dinner, party food and alcohol. I’m no different.
Calling it a journey may be a bit of an exaggeration, it wasn't like I went through many obstacles and came through the other side. My personal journey was more of a change of mental mindset that started out slow and has grown over time until having completely changed my entire outlook of myself as a person. Strangely enough, my process did not start with going to the gym constantly or dieting loads. No, it started with a smoothie. Yes, a smoothie.
