#5 Forgive Yourself for Mistakes
Mistakes – we all make them! The wise woman says it’s the only way to truly learn something.
So many times I have goofed up by eating something I was trying to avoid. And because I have food intolerances – I always regret it within hours. But then I start beating myself up. In the end I realise there’s no point making myself miserable … life is too short.
Learn the lesson – then go and pick yourself some flowers.
Make double or triple the amount of vegetables – for two or more meals. Eat what you need then store the rest in the fridge. It takes no longer than making them for one meal. A simple idea – and obvious-in-hindsight.
For a quick lunch – left-over roast meat – or grilled fish. But to avoid bread and starchy stuff – you need vegetables! Just nuke your pre-cooked vegetables in the microwave for a few seconds and munch your lunch!
#7 Barbecues are Brilliant
There’s something about cave man, meat and fire… Nothing could be simpler than char-grilled meat, fish or seafood. For steak and lamb – try a little marinade of lemon juice, fresh thyme and rosemary – sprinkle with sea salt and brush with olive oil. Easy, hearty and – and low-ranking.
#8 Stay Hydrated
So lubricate your bodily parts with a couple of glasses a day … along with plain mineral water, herbal tea, fruit infusions and tisane.
