This year my focus is on my health as I feel I have neglected myself over the past few years, travelling overseas, living in a new city and establishing myself professionally in a new country. After some research I did at the beginning of the year I decided to introduce more plant based meals into my life. I’ve written a little about being Paleo and how this change was very positive however I knew after a year is was no longer working for me. I was also researching Lipoedema, the hereditary disease I have (don’t google image this when you are eating!) and the limited research on this disease indicates that I should limit or completely remove red meat from my diet. I was also given similar advice last year, limit red meat and no processed foods, from a specialist about when I spoke to them about the best ways to avoid the hereditary cancer in my family. Timing is everything and Honestly Healthy had been sending me their weekly newsletter after I attended a vegetarian supper club months ago but this email sparked my interest as Natasha had developed a program called Green & Lean which promised tasty, plant based, vegetarian meals with a dedicated prep night so weekly meals were easy. Perfect! I signed up and after a few false starts due to constant moving at the beginning of the year I’m in month two of the plan. All the meals are easy to make and there are HIIT session videos included if you need to add workouts to your routine.
