My Healthy Eating Plan!


People say 70-80% of the visible results to our body from the food we eat. That’s why I believe you should sort out your eating habits before even worrying about what exercises you should be doing. You will see results SO much faster by sticking to a clean, healthy diet and accompanying that with regular weight training and cardio.

To give you an idea on what you CAN eat, I’ve come up with some diet examples. I don’t count calories myself, when you work fulltime and have a social life it’s just too difficult. I aim to eat natural organic foods whenever possible, and stay away from processed carbohydrate, sugars, fats etc. If it doesn’t spoil within about a week – think twice before eating it.

I try to eat well 90% of the time. Sometimes I will have more carbs or natural sugars than I should, but I at least try to keep it healthy. I have maybe 1-2 i cheat meals per week.

Here is a look at my daily meal and exercise routine:
6.30 am - 3 days I week I try wake up early and do a 30 minute jog OR skipping session.
7.30 am - Eat my breakfast and prepare my lunch.
8.30 am – I get to work and immediately have another lemon and ginger hot water.
10.30 am – I have a snack. If I am to have a piece of fruit I have it now as I try to keep sugars before lunch.
1.00 pm – I have my lunch.
3.00 pm – I have another snack.
6.00 pm – I have my dinner.
7.00 pm – This is usually when I train, I train for about 1.5 hours.
8.30 pm – I have my post workout snack or protein shake.
10.30 pm – I try to be asleep by this time but I’m usually awake on youtube or facebook!

Here is an idea of what foods I would eat for each meal.

Breakfast:  I try to eat some good carbs for my breakky, something to give me long lasting energy and that will prevent me from feeling hungry early on. I enjoy having a hot water with lemon and fresh ginger to accompany my first meal of the day.



  






For example:
- An organic brown or wholemeal bread, toasted with avocado spread on top. This is quick and I have it often.

- An organic brown or wholemeal bread, toasted with scrambled eggs. If I have time I like to add chives, cottage/bocconcini cheese and tomatoes to my scrambled eggs!

- Natural Greek Yogurt with fruit and oats. I layer mine in a glass to make a delicious breakfast parfait, my favourite! Sometimes I swap out the fruit for berries. Add some honey to the natural yogurt if you really need to, only a small amount as honey is still sugar!

- Oats! I make oats more exciting by using almond milk, natural peanut butter and banana. Cook up the oats, almond milk and peanut butter in a microwave for 1 minute, stir it up and add sliced banana on top. Shredded coconut is delish when sprinkled on top!

-Breakfast Smoothie, yummy as any meal really. But I use a chocolate protein like Hydroxy Burn Pro by BSC, add half a banana, Almond Milk, a tablespoon of Peanut Butter and some oats blended all together. Could add berries with, or instead of the banana.

- Oat pancakes. Blend some oats, egg and milk with vanilla essence. Cook as a pancake in a pan and serve with cinnamon and banana.



Lunch: For me, Lunch is time for meat and salad! I stay away from carbs and sugars at this time, and have usually already prepared this meal the previous Sunday. I usually eat the same or a similar thing every day for 5 days while I’m at work. Having my meals prepared means I won’t go to the shops and buy something unhealthy. I always cook with coconut oil.



- Grilled chicken strips with leafy salad, cherry tomatoes and bocconcini.

- A can of tuna with baby spinach, cottage cheese and carrot.

- Homemade chicken patties with salad.

- Grilled fish with mashed sweet potato, boiled broccoli and beans

- A can of tuna with asparagus and made into a salad.

- Beef strips with Boiled veggies

- Lettuce Wrap, get together some chicken, veggies, maybe some cheese and wrap it all up in a leaf of lettuce!



Dinner: I usually eat dinner earlier than most, between 5.30 and 6.30 pm. I then go to the gym and train until 8:30 – 9.00 pm. My lunch and dinners are usually really similar and anything I eat for lunch could also be eaten at dinner and vice versa.



- Baked Salmon with grilled green beans, pine nuts and baked sweet potato.

- Baked ‘lasagne’ – I make my own lasagne by slicing an eggplant and using it in replacement of pasta sheets. Topping your healthy lasagne with some sliced bocconcini and baking in the oven, delish.

- Stir fry, they’re delicious and there’s many ways to mix it up by using different meats and veggies.

- Egg omelette with chicken, tomato, asparagus and whatever other yummy veggies you want thrown in - so quick and delicious.

- Lamb & capsicum Kebabs using Middle Eastern spices, serve with lemon and salad.

- Steak and baked sweet potato ‘chips’, served with veggies.

- Make a ‘Raw Burrito’, a traditional inspired burrito filling wrapped in a crispy lettuce leaf!

- Stuffed Eggplant – I love making a Moroccan mince, with pine nuts, tomato and spices, scooping out the inside of an eggplant and baking it. One of my favourites.




Snacks: It’s important to eat more than just three meals a day. I eat about 6 -7 meals a day, with these small snacks between Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner, maybe a small snack after dinner if I’m hungry. These are all really simple and easy to make or pre-prepare.






-An apple, chopped with peanut butter to dip.

-A carrot, chopped with cottage cheese to dip.

- Some almonds or macadamia nuts.

- Natural yogurt with berries.

- Cucumber slices with cottage cheese and tuna flakes.

- Celery and hummus dip.

- Banana slices sandwiching Peanut Butter.

- Boiled egg



For me today it was:
Peanut butter and banana oats for breakfast, yogurt, berry and oat parfait for a snack, baked Salmon, beans, sweet potato and pine nuts for lunch, carrot and a boiled egg as a snack.... and I haven't planned dinner yet ;)

Hope this helped you guys!

Love,
Chlo

  1. Hi Chloe, thanks so much for taking the time to do such a detailed post on this, it's really helpful! I have a question - I started going to the gym this year but still consider myself a rookie with cardio and weights. When do you think it's appropriate for someone to start drinking protein shakes? I'm not sure if it will help me tone up just yet as I'm not doing huge amounts of exercise at the moment since I'm in my last (very stressful) semester of uni! :)

  16. My life became devastated when my husband sent me packing, after 8 years that we have been together. I was lost and helpless after trying so many ways to make my husband take me back. One day at work, i was absent minded not knowing that my boss was calling me, so he sat and asked me what its was all about i told him and he smiled and said that it was not a problem. I never understand what he meant by it wasn't a problem getting my husband back, he said he used a spell to get his wife back when she left him for another man and now they are together till date and at first i was shocked hearing such thing from my boss. He gave me an email address of the great spell caster who helped him get his wife back, i never believed this would work but i had no choice that to get in contact with the spell caster which i did, and he requested for my information and that of my husband to enable him cast the spell and i sent him the details, but after two days, my mom called me that my husband came pleading that he wants me back, i never believed it because it was just like a dream and i had to rush down to my mothers place and to my greatest surprise, my husband was kneeling before me pleading for forgiveness that he wants me and the kid back home, then i gave Happy a call regarding sudden change of my husband and he made it clear to me that my husband will love me till the end of the world, that he will never leave my sight. Now me and my husband is back together again and has started doing pleasant things he hasn't done before, he makes me happy and do what he is suppose to do as a man without nagging. Please if you need help of any kind, kindly contact Happy for help and you can reach him via email: happylovespell2@gmail.com

  20. How To Get Your Ex Back Fast I was going crazy when my husband left me and my two kids for another woman. My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. highly recommend Dr Unity, he is the Best online spell caster that is powerful and genuine. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. Email him at: ( drbusyspellhome@gmail.com you can also call or Add him on Whatsapp: +2348072222356· Email him at: drbusyspellhome@gmail.com His website: http://drbusyspellhome.yolasite.com .
