‘No carbs before Marbs’ or rather ‘No carbs before Barbs’ as that’s where I’m off to (Barbados).
I’m a very goal orientated and motivated person and prefer to work under pressure. If I gave myself a goal that was in 6 months time I might not work as hard during the first few months because 6 months is just too far away for me.
I also like to push myself and, whilst I strive to have a healthy bod all year round I don’t think there’s anything wrong with becoming a little stricter and working harder for a special event or holiday- I want to look my best.
So with just under 4 weeks before my holiday (25 days- not that I’m counting or anything) I thought I’d up the exercise and cut the crap in my diet to really see what my body is capable of.
This recipe is super quick and easy and great if you’re looking to try something new. It’s also lovely to photograph food that is so bright and colourful! You’ll get seriously good instagram-worthy pics.
The great thing about this recipe is that you can make it vegan/veggie/meat-loving so you can cater to all your guests. Yay!
Mexican food is probably my favourite food, scratch that, BBQ food is my favourite, Mexican comes in at a close second. The great thing about both is that they are super easy to make healthy (except the large handfuls or cheese and spoonfuls of sour cream poured on top of it, haha).
I made this recipe the other day when I didn’t have any taco shells. Taco shells aren’t actually that unhealthy but I fancied adding in some rice instead. You can always omit the rice if you fancy. No rules here 🙂
If you want to make it veggie friendly then either use quorn chicken pieces of check out my other blog post for 10 minutes veggie/vegan tacos here
“Eating Healthily is too Expensive”, that’s what many people say when trying to find an excuse as to why they don’t eat better. But that is what it is, an BS excuse. Yes, if you ate every meal during the day at McDonlalds, it would probably be cheaper, but you’d also be dead or seriously ill within a couple of months.
So I am posting what I eat in a week to demonstrate how easy it really is to eat well on a budget. I’ll also add my top tips on how to make your food shop cheaper.In order to bring down the cost of eating well, I will eat the same meal for lunch for a week and the same meal for supper too. Not only does this mean you aren’t wasting food by binning left-overs, but also allows you to meal-prep more easily. Here I have broken down exactly what I eat and exactly how much it costs per meal and per week.
