Eat Healthy but not boring!

Eating well doesn’t mean being boring, it really doesn’t! There are so many people out there, making a living by helping us get back onto the  ‘healthy eating’ regime but most of us still manage to fail, because most ‘diet’ foods on offer today are either laden with artificial sweeteners or simply plain boring and repetitive!

I am told that the most powerful and successful mantra is ‘eat less and exercise more’…Well, sounds pretty simple, doesn’t it? But is it? Not for me, certainly. I have tried every ‘diet’ plan under the sun but I am still searching for a miraculous ‘new’ plan, that will allow me to munch on ‘chevda’ and chips and still get the weight off! I wish there was a magic wand that would though….Is there anyone out there, even remotely similar to me? I love food, I enjoy it far too much to simply choose to live on just fruit and yoghurt or salad! So, here is the deal…I am now on the lookout for interesting and tasty meals that fill me up and provide a Satisfaction Quotient of 100%, that actually will stop my ‘munch, munch and munch some more throughout the day act!

Here are some slightly different recipes from across the world, that I have since tried and am quite happy with each one of them – well, that’s why they are here in this post! They all are simply delicious, quite filling, in a nice sort of way and keep the ‘munching monster’ away too! They work…Give them a go…

Happy healthy, yummy cooking, people!
