It’s been one month since I started a strict, new and revised eating plan. I try to be a healthy-eater but lately I’ve been feeling run-down, agitated, anxious, bloated and overall frustrated with myself. Time for change.
I’ve considered it. The thoughts of no longer consuming meat, eggs, cheese have crossed my mind on more than one occasion. I’ve been thinking about going vegan but I can’t bring myself to take the leap -even if I do take baby steps every week like rarely cooking meat and cutting dairy out of our diet – including the kids’. So I decided to speak to a friend who has chosen this lifestyle path and satisfy my curiosity of all the questions I have regarding this healthier way of eating.
A few months ago I came across a blog post on Buddha Bowls. Have you heard of them? As far as I’m concerned this is exactly the type of excitement that healthy eating was missing. A big bowl packed with all sorts of colourful goodies, a custom-made dish with which you can let your imagination run wild.
We’re at that stage where James is on three meals a day. That means exactly what all mamas with young babies know it means: The pressure is on. Gone are the days when all I needed were my boobs and a nappy or two. Also it’s been over five years since I pureed a meal and while I never thought things could change that much in this department I am actually discovering all sorts of new information and food combinations.
I could write a poem or a song dedicated to this beautiful and simple recipe I’ve recently discovered. It’s that good. Buttery, biscuity, chocolatey, crunchy and absolutely irresistible, I’ve been making it once a week and buying jars of peanut butter and boxes of buscuits in case of any sudden cravings.
