EAT BETTER NOT LESS

Many of us are constantly thinking about portion sizes and about counting calories in order to stay slim. Healthy eating is not about limiting ourselves, eating less or depriving ourselves. Healthy eating is about eating as much as you want whenever you feel hungry but choosing the right food. You can eat fresh whole foods such as fruits, dates, greens, nuts, potatoes etc. all day long without ever being worried about calories. These calories are not the reason people gain weight.

The reason people gain weight is because they consume tons of additives, bad cholesterol, sodium, refined sugars etc. without even knowing it. Processed foods, Junk food, dairy products and meat products are what makes our body acid, sick and over weight. Obviously if that is your diet you need to keep an eye on calories.

Imagine you are cutting out all these processed foods and animal proteins, start to prepare your own food, source your ingredients locally and eat tons of fresh whole foods, you obviously won’t have to count calories ever anymore and can eat as much as you want.

That is what i believe is the biggest benefit of going vegan. That freedom of never ever again thinking about food in a way of restriction. Food should be something positive, something we enjoy and something that makes us feel nourished, happy and healthy. It is not about limiting yourself it is about choosing the right food and treating your body well.

    Hi Tatiana,
    vermicelli are rice noodles and therefore great! However, I recommend to cut out fried food, macaroni etc. :-)) Try to find healthier vegan options if you crave certain food. :):)

Hi Caroline! I was wondering if you ever eat “homemade” popcorn? Like you pop yourself 🙂

    Hi Leonora,

what would be your grocery list for the week? How many times do you go shopping a week?

    HI Emma,
    i love to go shopping every day and decide what i want. I just love to get things fresh but it would be totally fine to go twice a week and buy in big batches. I can’t really say what would be a list for the whole week but if you look up my what i eat in a week post you get an idea of how much fruit i eat in a week. In general i would recommend to order a 5kg box of dates/per month and to always buy bananas in big boxes so they can ripen up at home. Also ask at the grocery store if you get a discount if you buy in big boxes. :-))
    Hope that helps.
    xx Caroline
