2019 Goal 2: Diet and Train for a Healthier Me – Recipes

So I am into week 3 of the new year and today I want to discuss my 2nd goal which concerns dieting and training for my health. Just before I get into that though I wanted to share an excellent article with you. It is ideal for people who have either not made any resolutions for the new year and want to or have made some but have since found they couldn’t keep up.


Halfway through January is the normal time when the shine wears off the resolutions from the New Year and sticking to them seems harder. Remember don’t be too hard on yourself, you can always start again, take a step back or wait a while. Reassess why you wanted to make the goal in the first place and perhaps you will be able to rekindle that resolve. I particularly like the idea of making a vision board and I am working on one for this goal which I will share with you when it is complete.

Recipes for Health

When I provided some background to this goal I explained that I wanted to take a bottom up approach. Basically that means that I am adding small steps every week to my routine instead of trying to change everything at once. In the first week I started a new morning routine whereby I have a glass of warm water and lemon and a spoonful of ground flaxseed before I have anything else, I have cut out added sugar from my diet and I am training with weights 3 times a week. In the second week I added in one cardio class a week and started to incorporate more protein into my diet.

This week I am starting to include more healthy recipes. It is important to me that my recipes are healthy, quick and easy to make and tidy up from and that the children can share them. I wanted to share a few of them with you here:

How to make a Banana and Strawberry Smoothie with added protein

How to make a Coconut and Blueberry Health Shake that the kids will love.

A Healthy Dessert with Avocado, Coconut and Chocolate

The Perfect Breakfast Food; Protein Pancakes

All of the recipes above are ones I make myself on a regular basis. Click the titles to view the full recipe for each on HubPages. I have written each of the posts I have linked to and am currently earning passive income from them.

Since I started this goal I have now lost 6lbs in weight, and while that is not my only focus I am starting to feel better for it. Have you implemented any new habits to improve your health this year? If you want some weight loss tips check out tryadietforaday.com it is full of interesting posts.
