My body is seriosuly sensitive to food! During my wild varsity days and my overseas stint, I ate and drank what I liked, whenever I liked. Ulcers and stomach issues were my best friend! When I moved back from the UK, 5kgs heavier, still struggling with my stomach, I deceided enough is enough. I needed to get my body on track.
I had no idea where to start, until I read a article that said.. "it's all about finding what works for you". Well, it took a while, but 1 year in and the #pescatarian way has really changed my life! Red Meat just never sat well with me, I have never been a fan of pork ( besides a lekker pork sausage) and well chicken is, just chicken. I basically established that I was mainly sticking to eating meat because of my #SouthAfrican heritage! A South African that doesn't eat meat?.. no man! That means you dont braai! 😂
Veggies are my jam yo! Just last night a had a red pepper on the braai for one of 2 #HeritageDay celebrations and it was delicious!. Other wise words of wisdom that have stuck with me and helped me manage my diet, are words a very good friend of mine told me... she said "eat to enjoy food and nourish" these words (3 years later) have helped me eat slower, allowing me to enjoy every bite, and to think about what I am going to put into my body.
I have recently started to fall off the wagon a bit, and so have deceide to add to the list...Learn more about what you chow! Thanks to @rosflintexercise_science I recently learned more about fruit and because of that have started introducing them back into my #diet!
Create a life-list that isn't about merely ticking off things, to get them out of the way. Create a list that is going to assist you in leading a over all balanced, mindfull, fulfilled life. Remebering what you have achieved and why you wanted to achieve it, I have recently figured out, is pretty important to staying true.
