How many times have I heard someone ( *cough* brother, friends, peers at school, people on tv etc.) say this. If I had a burger for every time someone said this.... the world would be forced to eat healthy because there would be a burger shortage! (Hmmm, plan?)
Ok, maybe not ;)Any who, it bugs me! I mean sure steamed broccoli and plain old celery sticks are considered healthy... but if you think that is all that's considered healthy, boy do I have news for you!!
I find it utterly hilarious when my friends gawk at me when I tell them the basic outline of my diet (vegetarian, no processed sugar, low wheat, no cow's milk- just can't tolerate it, and very little processed foods) and then come out with the typical question of; 'What do you eat then?' The hilarious part of all this is telling them about the last meal I ate and watching their reactions.
' Oh, you know a super rich chocolate-y pudding like creation.'
'That would be some peanut butter banana ice cream.'
'A super yummy veggie pizza.'
I don't know about you, but if I'm going to nourish my body with the best possible foods... as well as eat for the rest of my life- it's going to be tasty!
The smoothie bowl:
So much goodness! Then to top it off (literally) some home made granola (super easy and delicious!) to add the fibre, wholegrain goodness and filling healthy fat to the meal!
Lunches can be just as tasty, if not more, especially when you know a few tricks of the trade in the vegetable department!
Then marrying those flavour together with some cooked pearl barley, spinach, drained chickpeas, chopped fresh coriander and lemon juice:
Those are just two of the ways healthy meals can be great! I could go on for days... but then I feel like this blog post would be too long. Maybe.
What about you?
Do you ever forget how awesome healthy food can be?
Do your friends ever use that as an excuse to why they don't like healthy food?
Favourite meal that is healthy and tastes out-of-this-world amazing?
I hope this has given you some inspiration and as usual I will always be popping in with fun new recipes to try when your lacking inspiration in the healthy (but ridiculously tasty) department!
Have a great day and make something that not only makes your bod feel great, but also you entire being :) Bye! :D
