When you’re on a special diet, you have to put in some extra effort to nourish yourself if you want to stay on track. There’s so much of food available to tempt you into straying from your disciplined habits! We’ve been recently focussing on a Mediterranean-style low carb diet, and it’s done wonders for our sense of wellbeing. Eating simple meals created around simple, organic ingredients that are so full of flavour, you don’t need a lot of dressings or sauces to jazz it up. There’s enough flavour in the ingredients and you only need a drizzle of our Urbangrains Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil to your plate.
Today’s lunch is a colourful mix of steamed root vegetables and broccoli, seasoned lightly with salt and pepper and a little olive oil. Add a boiled egg for high-quality protein, and you have a fulfilling, nourishing lunch that takes no time to put together. You’ll notice that we’ve avoided starchy carbs of all kinds. This article highlights how beneficial olive oil can be with their polyphenols content which act to reduce the risks of cancer.
We’re avoiding processed foods as well, since these contain high quantities of sugar and salt. Coupled with daily sessions at the gym, we’re sure to reach our weight-loss goals in no time this year. How about you? Have you kept up your New Year health resolutions? If you’re feeling the guilt, just make yourself a low-carb plate full of veggie goodness like this one and you’ve taken one big step towards your goal by simply starting to eat healthy!
