Meal Ideas for a Healthy Lifestyle and Weight Loss

Hey guys!

Following my recent post about my weight loss which you can read here many of you asked me whether I could be more specific about my healthy eating. So I decided to take pictures of some of my tastiest and healthiest meals for you over the last few you weeks. Most of these meals I ate during exam season. These meals are not extremely healthy or nothing like you expect – my healthy eating was meant to be food that was meant to still fill my belly. I don’t like restricting myself on food as this will lead to cravings of specific foods which are unhealthy. So don’t diet just eat healthy. Don’t restrict yourself because that leads to rebound. I hope this gives you an idea and maybe if this helps you I may post more meal ideas soon. 

Breakfast Ideas

    Chia Seeds topped with fruits pudding  

    I leave some chia seeds to soak in almond or coconut milk early morning for an hour or sometimes     even over night. They are filled with nutrients and are great at soaking up water. I top this with a         banana, raspberries and blueberries.  


    Cooked oats with fruits

Oats help me get through the day till lunch without feeling hungry. I top my cooked oats with fruits and sometimes sprinkle some cinnamon and sugar over it and top it with fruits. 

Lunch Ideas

 – any steamed vegetables – I tend to love broccoli
– grated carrots
– small portion of rice
– mushroom gravy sauce
– one chicken breast
– peppers
 This is a very filling meal and allows me to eat something light for dinner.
