Three steps for getting back on a balanced diet

6 August 2019

Wave goodbye to summer excesses and say hello to healthy eating. Getting back on a balanced diet after summer indulgences might look like mission impossible, but it’s not! Just follow these three simple steps:

In the morning…

Forget about all those sugary pastries you dunked in your morning coffee like there was no tomorrow during the holidays. How about this for a simple, delicious, healthy breakfast? Some wholemeal bread (try some heavenly mixed grain), a dash of extra-virgin olive oil, a pinch of salt and, if you like, some slices of tomato, avocado (or both!). Finish off with a slice of fresh cheese and those pastries will soon be a distant memory.

A hint for keeping bread nice and fresh? Put it in the freezer and pop it straight into the toaster in the morning.

At midday…

Your new friend is called salad. It’s delicious and far more versatile than you might have thought when you were devouring huge platefuls of calorie-laden dishes. Take note: rice, pasta, quinoa, couscous, lentils, chickpeas, cauliflower, potatoes… There are a thousand and one basics to get you going, before adding some fruit and vegetables. Drizzle some extra-virgin olive oil over the top as a dressing and top off with a handful of your favourite nuts.

In the evening…

Your other highly versatile friend is called soup, which you can make out of almost anything: courgettes, carrots, peas, broccoli, cauliflower, chard, spinach, cabbage… Mix your choice of vegetables together and finish off with a dash of extra-virgin olive oil. Give your tasty creation a protein boost by serving with some grilled fish or meat. You won’t get much healthier than that!
