This is your way of having something that most people love but in a healthier way you could make your own oven chips out of potato or kumura ( sweet potatoes). Make a nice salad  to go with.

Kebabs are a great way to get vegetables into you. also kids love to help you make them. http://www.pork.co.nz/RecipesTips/RecipesSearchResults/Recipes/tabid/69/cutID/0/methodID/0/recipeID/136/recipeTypeID/0/RecipeSearch/kebabs/Default.aspx

This week I have put in a soup recipe for you all. I got inspired by a friend of mine who had a Moroccan soup and said it was nice so I found this one which is similar http://www.areaderz.com/7-refreshing-summer-soups-recipes-moroccan-vegetable-soup/

Now that for most the weather is getting cold there is nothing like hearty stew. Try and get other vegetables into stews also or have some on the side. http://www.recipes.co.nz/spanish-beef-and-potato-stew?pid=f7d9d9fb-3ac5-4c6b-85b8-e25b4a36da18

Pork goes so well with apple this is one of the few foods I am happy to put meat with fruit with. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/applesauce-pork-chops/detail.aspx

 

Last meal is my off night meal this week is nachos. you will notice that once a week there will be something in the weekly planner that is not what “dieters” would recommend. But for me once a week I have a meal that is not as  healthy, but in saying that most of the time it will be a meal that I still add veges etc to it. If I want to of course.

Putting fruit with vitamin C with meat is great, your body is able to absorb the iron much better, Iron requires vitamin C to work efficiently. If you are like me and think fruit is for snacks and pudding etc, then try eating something after you have eaten your meal to try to get that iron absorbing.

  1. Hey, just so you know, I am currently doing a diet/lifestyle change, and we get one meal a week where we can have whatever we like, as long as it is home cooked!
