Its Been A While..

Hello friends,

I will begin by admitting it sure has been a long time since I have been on here for a chat, or a telling of good food. In the time I have been absent, I have travelled, begun a health degree I am incredibly passionate about and had a lot of changes in my diet.

As some of you know, my main reasons for beginning this blog were to document clean eating and its impact of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I have nothing but positive and incredibly wonderful news about how all that has gone. My IBS is completely gone as a result of the elimination diet paired with clean eating.. I couldn’t be happier I as able to achieve it and have been repeating the benefits of being cautious of what I eat since.

I am back on here to revisit the goals of healthy eating that I left behind a little while ago and start over. I have not been eating unhealthy in the past few months… just healthy with a bit too much indulgence every now and then ;).

I post dominantly through Instagram under the username “healthy_positive_me” where I share foods I find, among other things. Have a look!

Lamb Stir-Fry

Healthy, fresh, light, and low fat. This lamb dish has more than the basics of a healthy meal – Benefits of lamb consumption: (http://www.fitday.com)

– Lamb is one of the richest sources of easily digestible protein. A 100 gram serving yields about 30 grams of protein. Amino acids facilitate production of energy from fatty acids. This energy supports various processes in the body.

– The B-complex vitamins play an essential role in the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Lamb is one of the meat sources that provide high levels of vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 supports various metabolic processes in the body. Vitamin B12 also helps to produce red blood cells.Lamb Stir-Fry

Meal Preparation + Grocery List (Suitable for dairy intolerant, lactose intolerant)

Hi everyone, today I’m going to explain how I have prepared my meals for the next month. I like to have everything per-organised and a vegemite sandwich does not cut it for lunch for me. Its great to cook your meals ahead of time, you save stressing out and being under pressure to cook something healthy, quickly, so enjoy your cooking time and your meals with an easier approach to organisation in the kitchen.

So here we go:

I have made 28 meals today: of 4 different kinds, all using turkey mince (heart healthy, low low low fat and high high high protein!!!!). My meals are:

1. Cantonese turkey mince with rice and tortillas and broccolini
2. Spaghetti bolognese with rice
3. Mexican flavoured turkey mince with tortillas
4. Chicken thigh Schnitzels with vegetables

These meals include protein, carbohydrates, and 4 serves of vegetables (altogether), are low in fat and low GI (keep you fuller for longer).

I have uploaded a picture below of the ingredient list, the whole lot cost me less than $50.00 in groceries. Bargain!!!

I had 3 pans going on the stove at once, but to simplify it:

For: 1. Cantonese turkey mince with rice and tortillas and broccolini
2. Spaghetti bolognese with rice
3. Mexican flavoured turkey mince with tortillas:

– Brown mince with an onion in a pan on medium heat.
– Once brown, Add desired flavourings (e.g: bolognese add tinned tomatoes and mushrooms, for Mexican mince add taco seasoning and BBQ sauce, for Cantonese turkey mince add the Cantonese flavoured sauce).
– Meanwhile boil the rice and potatoes (in separate pans), they take about 6 minutes or so.
– steam the vegetables you choose over the boiling pot in a steamer.
– spoon all meals into separate containers and freeze till your ready to take them out for your meal!

For: 4. Chicken thigh Schnitzels with vegetables:
– put chicken thighs in oven on 190 degrees Celsius for 35 minutes.
– put into allocated containers with potatoes and brocollini, and freeze till your ready to take them out for your meal!

Enjoy!!
