🌺Three things you can start doing to improve the quality of your diet 🍃
1. Limit processed foods: remove foods that are high in refined sugar, high corn fructose syrup, saturated fat, trans fats and chemical additives. You may get withdrawal symptoms; be aware so you plan ahead.
2. Start adding more plant foods: Rather than snacking on high sugar, high fat or nutrient-poor foods all the time, choose fruits or vegetables more often. Instead of eating ready-made meals, cook your food from scratch with fresh ingredients. Instead of drinking fizzy drinks, make a smoothie or eat fresh 🍌🍉🍅🍏
3. Eat more legumes: Replace some, most or all of your meat, fish & poultry with legumes. They’re much higher in fibre, great for balancing blood sugar and maintaining weight. Legumes are also great sources of iron. Try to eat them with vitamin c-rich foods like Brussels sprouts or broccoli to maximise iron absorption.
In my bowl, Borlotti beans with bulgur wheat, wilted spinach, mashed 🥑, 🌽 and 🥦.
Happy New Week 😊💙 #buddhabowl #legumes #veganbowls
