Hello everyone! A lot of the times people complain about cooking and it being time consuming, and a lot of the times it is true. grabbing a bite to eat is much more convenient and not to mention a lot quicker. Cooking healthy does not always have to be so time consuming!

Here I have a picture of my favorite food, salmon. Salmon is a great source of protein and it is not bland either. This takes me less than 10 minutes to grill, I add some olive oil and grill some veggies a long with it. It fills me up, its quick and its delicious!

Now I know not everyone is a fish person, this is just something to show you that it is quick, tasteful and healthy. Grilling is one of the healthiest ways to cook your foods and the fastest! I add some lemon and salt, when I have time I bake it with some breadcrumb on top. There is a number of ways to cook your healthy food. My suggestion is to switch it up, add some flavor so you do not resent eating healthy if you are eating the same thing over and over again.

Healthy does not have to mean flavorless and bland, learn new recipes and ingredients and have fun with it! Do not be afraid to add some salt or even a little butter. Like I said, sometimes I add bread crumb. This is not about perfection, it is about the healthier choice. Do not beat yourself up over some sodium or carbs.

Breakfast

IMG_0039

1 Cup of oatmeal

1/2 an apple

Pure honey instead of sugar

Tbsp of cinnamon

I typically eat this before I workout because it is a good source of energy. Like I always say carbs are much needed and what healthier way to have them! Oatmeal happens to be one of the most beneficial breakfasts, not to mention it speeds up your metabolism over time.

Zucchini Pasta

I decided to try something new. Zucchini Pasta!

1 Whole Zucchini (cut into the form of pasta, I had a machine)

1 Cup of Shrimp

Sauce

1 Cup of diced tomatoes

1/4 Cup of garlic

Diced onions

2 Tbsp of olive oil

Shrimp is a great source of protein, not to mention you get your veggies in with this too! To me this was just as satisfying as having a bowl of pasta, and it filled me up for quite some time.
