We had discusssed it in early December, but after my being sick for three weeks and still shaking off the remnants of my cough, we decided that now was the time to do some healthy eating for a few weeks. By healthy eating, I mean no caffeine or alcohol, very little wheat or dairy (sourdough bread and feta cheese are good: anything else is out) and no processed foods. We had a lovely first day and spoiled ourselves with the following:
Scrambed eggs with feta, mushrooms and spring onion piled on top of sourdough bread
A stir fry rice dish with prawns and peppers, broccoli, cashews, mushrooms, tomatos and sesame oil
And copious amounts of herbal tea and water (often with lemon and mint)
And we've been snacking on apples and dried mango (which I had forgotten how much I love!). It's so nice to treat my body well for a while: even though I don't think I could ever eat this healthily long term unless I absolutely had to, I think it's good to do it every now and again. It's nice to have someone to do it with too, although I think my boyfriend may struggle more than I will!
So, do any of you have any delicious, fresh, healthy meal, snack or drink suggestions? I always love new ideas!
