Dinner! Spinach, olive oil, salt, pepper, tomatoes, fresh oregano and a turkey muffin. So good! I have been eating all kinds of goodies this weekend and that’s quite alright with me, but do you know what? I really started to miss my diet! I miss my fresh veggies and food like this, mmm, feels good to be back to it!

Why do we eat what we eat? Do you love your food?

Okay, so I suddenly realized the other day that I have forced myself to eat food just because it would be healthy. The main thing, I don’t really have any foods that I don’t like. I have eaten most things (Apart from those that I, for other reasons choose not to, like tuna and red meat). And maybe, this is one of the problems that have made me overweight. Not really thinking about what I eat, or if I like it, I have just eaten. Until the plate was empty. So, why do you eat the things you eat? And do you really like them? Food, healthy food should give you pleasure, you should enjoy it! It will make you more satisfied and reduce cravings because you had something you really enjoyed. I really don’t buy this concept to treat your food as fuel for your body only, nooooo. Horseshit. There is to much enjoyment in nice healthy food to ever let that not be a part of life!

So here is my list of foods that I really love and _want_ to eat. I can’t eat all of them all of the time, but I can find good alternatives if they are to unhealthy.

- Yoghurt, berries, walnuts and agave.

- Scrabled/fried eggs on hard bread with avocado

- Sweet potato

- Dark rye bread, walnut bread and sourdough bread.

- Cheese

- Chocolate

- Wholegrain wraps

- Chicken sallad

- Oven baked root veggies

- Chicken/turkey/white fish

- Blueberries

Things I’m really not that into

- Pasta

- Plain lettuce, I really have an issue with salads. Which is kind of, weird.

- Granola

- Oatmeal

- Rice

The list could go on for a lot longer but I’ll spare you. :)

BENEFITS of MACKEREL
Mackerel is rich in protein and also with some other minerals such as calcium, phosphorous, potassium, selenium and magnesium. Vitamins such as Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin K, Niacin, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Choline and Folate can be found in mackerel fish. It’s a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids and some amount of Omega-6 fatty acids. Mackerel also contains monounsaturated fats. One should buy mackerel that is firm and bright, gills should be clean and the skin moist with shiny scales. Ideally, this fish should be eaten within couple of days because its skin disintegrates quickly. This fish is very good for the heart health and actually improves the heart condition. It helps to reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) levels and also helpful in lowering blood pressure levels.

Humblefoods: A part from this, it’s also an environmentally friendly fish that exists in abundance and is low in the food chain. Good for you good for the planet!

Your late night snack...

inspirationkick:

If you’re anything like me, you could not give less of a shizz about eating after 7 p.m. or 9 p.m. or whatever. If you’re hungry, you’re hungry! I’ve found that when my nighttime hunger strikes, more often than not, I’m craving salty stuff. Best solution?

Oh chyeeeaaaa! Edamame is so perfect…

What are humble foods?

These are foods that are:

 

  • Good for you
  • Good for the rest of the world, that is other humans, animals and the environment.

 

This, is not easy. There are many factors that contribute, I definitely don’t have all the answers, I don’t think any one does. I do however try to strive to learn and be as aware as I can when it comes to what I eat. Awareness helps you to make good choices, for you and the world. To me, this often boils down to a few simple rules, clean eating, local produce often organic and fair trade. I’m well aware that a lot of the products that I use has it’s problems but I try to make choices that might be at least better.
