The healthy eating has been a lot easier! Something that really annoys me is when people say that eating healthy is expensive and takes longer to prepare. As a nation we use excuses like we are 'too busy' or 'takeaway is nicer' or we eat convenience foods that we prick and stick in a microwave or unwrap and plonk in an oven. LAZY.
NEWSFLASH! It is not cheaper to order in or bulk buy ready meals from a supermarket and it has a lasting effect on your weight, heart, skin, hair, nails and energy levels. I know this post might sound like i'm ranting but I think it is vitally important to drive it home to people that what they put in their mouths can have a huge impact on their future.
For dinner last night I cooked my boyfriend and I my own variation of chicken salad. it was gorgeous and packed full of good ingredients. Salad never has to be boring; if you are eating enough of the 'good stuff' you can treat yourself to something naughty as well!
Salad Dressing -
3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
Sprinkle of Mixed Herbs
2 Fresh chicken drumsticks (each person)
1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Smoked Paprika sprinkled and massaged into the meat
