Hello there Folks! I’m Neil. Welcome to Neil’s Healthy Meals!
Are you tired of never ending diets and trying to maintain a consistent weight along with a happy, healthy lifestyle?
Then this blog is for you!
Here, we’re all about quick healthy meals, healthier recipes and an active lifestyle, based on the 80/20 rule for eating.
The rule is for 80% of the time you focus on eating healthier food and maintaining a regular daily exercise routine.
Then you can (within sensible limits) indulge a little for the other 20% on what you fancy, without any adverse effect on your weight or health.
The 80/20 rule means that you can choose what you want to eat.
You can live your life with a healthy balance. Diet free. But still enjoy the odd treat here and there.
I’m passionate about cooking and creating healthier recipes.
Neil’s Healthy Meals is where I share those recipes with you. To hopefully inspire you to take up the 80/20 lifestyle too.
Lady Lynne (my wife 🙂 ) and I live in Glasgow, Scotland.
We both have busy daily lives.
Lynne works in recruitment.
I’m a former IT Programme Manager and now certified Nutritionist. And Full-Time Food Blogger.
Lynne works full time in recruitment and, as site editor, fully taste tests and checks all the recipes before I publish them here.
I use paid for online resources to measure the nutritional components of my cooking. I publish those details here along with every recipe I prepare for you.
Lynne and I live the 80/20 way by keeping as active as much as possible.
We have our regular weekly exercise routines.
We love walking / hill walking together. As often as we can and when our Scottish weather lets us do so. 😉
Lynne inspired and encouraged me to write this blog.
It all started when we returned from a holiday a number of years ago.
She mentioned lovingly that I didn’t seem happy with my sluggish lifestyle.
Perhaps re-joining a gym, changing my diet and re-focusing my life might be the transformation I needed.
And it worked!
I lost 2 stone in weight and when Lynne also joined me on the 80:20 journey, she lost 5 stone!!
Since then we’ve been successfully living and breathing the 80/20 healthy lifestyle without any diet fads and it works for both of us.
Not only in terms of our balanced weight and health, but also in living a minimalist lifestyle saving for our futures and travelling the world.
This is the continual story. We’d love you to read on, subscribe, and live it with us. 🙂
We’re not here to tell you what to do, or to tell you how to lead your life.
However if you’re unhappy with your weight and constant dieting, I assure you we were there once.
We changed our lives for good by re-focusing and following the 80/20 way. It’s not a magic cure, just common sense, and it works.
