In this healthy living section you will discover all about the fundamentals of nutrition for you and your family.
Think about this for a moment. Do you realize that nowadays a huge percentage of us spend the majority of our working time sitting at our desks?
Even though our brains may be pretty active, our bodies aren’t. We're sitting for long periods of time without any activity and we’re putting our health and wellness at serious risk.
Whilst we can't always have complete control over our working environments, I promise you, you CAN make changes towards a better, healthier, sustainable healthy living lifestyle.
You CAN make changes to your life to become more active and become more aware of what you're eating, and, best of all you CAN still enjoy the many culinary and foodie treats that life has to offer through living by the 80:20 rule.
Being physically active and eating a healthy diet are the most important components of a healthy living lifestyle. But what does “healthy eating” actually mean? In this blog you will learn a lot about quick healthy meals, healthier recipes and a balanced, positive and active healthy lifestyle.
Healthy Living - The Key Facts
I will demonstrate how I manage to balance full time work with cooking healthy, unprocessed homemade food from scratch. I will also tell you about my weekly exercise routine and show how to stay healthy and happy.
My aim is to provide you with a resource where you can find healthier recipes for quick healthy meals. This is especially useful for those who are limited in time; however, people who have time but still enjoy healthy living can make great use of it.
All of the meals are nutritious, low cost, family meals with easy to follow recipes. Many of them can be made in large quantities and frozen to suit your busy working lifestyles.
All meals and recipes published here are ones that I have personally tried and tested several times, and if I didn’t believe you wouldn’t enjoy them, then they wouldn’t be here!
I hope to show and inspire you to lead a healthier and happier life with balanced diet, exercise and nutrition tips. All you need is the willingness to make this change. After a while it becomes a routine and part of a healthy, balanced life. It’s a well-known fact that healthy eating can help you maintain a healthy weight and avoid certain health issues, but your diet can also have a profound effect on your mood and sense of well being.
Eating a healthy diet doesn’t have to be very complicated. Even though some specific foods or nutrients have been proven to have a positive effect on mood, it’s your overall dietary habits that are most important. The key to a healthy diet pattern should be to replace processed food with real food as much as possible. Eating food that is similar to the way the nature made it can make a big difference to the way you think, look, and feel.
As I mentioned in my About Me page I study fitness and nutrition courses in my spare time. I have attained a Nutritionist in Weight Management certificate. This demonstrates that I am sufficiently qualified to call myself a Nutritionist and can offer advice on nutrition, diet and weight management.
I think this leads to being able to promote my recipes as being "Low Fat" or "Healthy". Readers of this blog can know with confidence that what I promote and write about are the thoughts of someone not only passionate to do so, but also qualified to do so.
