Keeping a balanced diet has been and is still a little bit tricky for me. Being on this two months sugar free journey, I recognise that I am indulging a bit too much on my sugar free treats … They do not contain any sugar but are rich in raw coconut oil / coconut flakes / coconut cream/ avocados/ raw chocolate / almond butter and so on.
I can easily indulge on them after my meals, thinking that they are part of my balanced diet. However, lately I have noticed that eating them freely and on a regular basis make me feel a bit sluggish and not 100% right neither! I have always have this tendency of increasing one category of food for the detriment of the other.
I need to look at and plan my meals a bit better as sometimes I am not paying enough attention at the amount of fats (even good fats) that I am putting in my body.
Here is the lesson that I am getting from this experience: I need to treat my sugar free treats as occasional indulgences, the same as I would do for non sugar free treats. I would need to raise a little bit more my awareness as when I am eating meals with a bit too much high fat content through the day so I can readjust my diet with higher vegetable content meals at night time.
Tonight, I wanted something lean served with green vegetables and salad: a real treat = tuna steak (a very special treat that me and my partner are having time to time :)))
Salt & black Pepper to taste
A dash of Tamari sauce
1 gem lettuce
Leftover of cooked vegetables: asparagus / cherry tomatoes / broccoli …
1 stalk of celery
Apple cider vinegar
Very simple, very fulfilling and filling ! You can add whatever you fancy to this salad. I love the mix of colours! Beautiful 🙂
Have a lovely evening everyone,
