Somebody asked me recently about my diet because I’m almost never sick and look healthy and slim.
My diet is mostly vegan – a lot of vegetables cooked in different ways, hot soup, rice.
All of these components are important especially in the winter, warm meals warm up, and I have a tendency to have cold feet, so I need warming up all year.
In addition, I eat fruits and fresh salads. When it’s warmer more, when it’s cooler less. In the winter the best works for breakfast millet with almonds, raisins, sunflower seeds, cinnamon and warm apple. More frequently now I eat the same as my children: hot oatmeal with fruits, sunflower seeds and goji berries (Thomas loves goji berries). I noticed that I feel better, when I have something warm for breakfast, even in the summer – it gives me more energy, I feel stronger. However, I start breakfast eating fresh fruits such as papaya and mango (my children love it as well). I like also Japanese style breakfast or South Indian breakfast if it wasn’t too much work to prepare.
With my husband we eat mostly vegetables, combined with fish or prawns, plus rice ( sometimes Japanese noodles). I almost don’t eat sweets because this diet is so balancing that I don’t feel a need for that. I’ve got used to natural tastes so I would rather go for a fruit or a toast with guacamole. The only exception is a piece of dark chocolate once in a while. And on Saturdays we go for a hot chocolate coulin with vanilla ice-cream.
My diet works.
I checked my BMI (Body Mass Index) which is a real indicator how much fat your body contain, even if you look skinny from outside!
Before 2014 it was too much – around 30 – so I was overweight.
In 2014 I had a chance to check my BMI and it was only 21! So I was slim. In the meantime I had two babies so I’m looking forward to check my BMI once more. I look the same as in 2014 though. And I feel good so this is the most important.
