I am not a big fan of diets, mostly because they are quite often very radical, restrictive and also I just really like my food :) The good food. I try eating very healthy, start a day with a cup of water with lemon juice. Then go running. Usually eat oatmeal for breakfast and going further with salad for lunch, a fruit snack around 3pm and dinner around 6-7pm from the recipes you can find here.
To me to point of a diet is not only to loose some weight, but also, and maybe mainly, to become more healthy.
I know that there are also well designed diets, which are very well balanced, and that is more less what I am aiming at.
No sweets, not too many carbs, a lot of vegetables, fruits, dairy products, nuts and seeds. Mostly fish and rarely meet. And constantly trying to drink alcohol only 1 day a week- the cheat day(Unfortunately, I like good wine :)), – The cheat day, when it’s allowed to eat a little of this and a little of that, which normally is to high on sugar or not super healthy.
And exercise, at least every second day, and if possible more often. I get this crave for good, old endorphins when I get into the training routine :)
What do you think? Do you like this kind of slow diet-not as super fast results- as with more radical diets? Or do you prefer to be on a more strict diet for 2 months, and be free :) Let me know!
Healthy and delicious for you: Sweet ribbed celery creme soup, with, onions, peas, apples & rosemary.
- 2 onions
- 4-5 celery ribbs
- 1 apple
- 1 can of chickpeas(240g without water)
- 2 table-spoons of butter, 2 table-spoons of oil
- salt, pepper & rosemary
Heat up a frying pan and melt butter. Add oil and chopped onions, and glaze on law heat for about 7-10min. This process is very important as it will make the onions bring out sugar and become sweet. Be careful not to burn them!
Chop celery and apple and add them to the pan. Season with rosemary and fry all for about 5min on low heat, covered. Drain chickpeas and add to the rest of the ingredients being fried. Pour in 1,5 glasses of water and boil for about 15 min. Season with just a bit of salt and pepper. This soup is quite rich in taste so if you like natural flavors, it doesn’t need much seasoning.
Mix well with a blender and serve with olive oil and rosemary on top!
