New Year Resoultions 2 Eat Healthy

New Year Resolution 2 Eat Healthier
Well after the christmas and New Year break any changes to your diet are likely to be an improvement but that doesn't mean you have to be boring with those meals. Re,ember the first principle in eating healthy...keep in plenty of greens.
Have a try our PH healthy Eating made Easy menu
Breakfast: sweet tooth? Then you will love this! 
Strawberry Parfaits
Cut 4 strawberries into quarters Mix 5 heaped spoons of low fat bio yoghurt with 25g oats, 25g natural muesli, add the strawberries, a good odd of cinnamon and small drizzle if honey. Throw it all in a glass and enjoy with hot water and lemon. 180cals and you will feel great, 
Lunch: can't cook? This is a healthy sandwich that even a first year student could make. The secret is using spelt bread- this is PH balanced and gluten free so it's gilt free! Add in all your fav salad ingredients-crunchy salad leaves, peppers, cucumber, beets, add some really good olive oil (flavoured) chilli and a little vinaigrette dressing. Use lean slice turkey breast (turkey has more protein, less water and less fat than chicken) as your protein fix and your done.
Dinner: I told you this menu isn't boring!
Seared Scallops with beans and Spinach
A nice source of protein that's easy and fast to cook and more impressively low in calories so we can have a little treat for desert! :) 
Cut a strip of lean bacon into small pieces and cook off in a medium heat pan. Add half an onion and some chopped garlic continuing to cook for 2-3 mins. Throw in the white beans and a good handful of spinach and wilt.
Heat another pan, blot dry the scallops and season, fry off in extr V olive oil for 2-3 mins each side.
Drizzle the juice if half a lemon over the beans and spinach and add to a plate with the scallops. 
Aim for 2 scallops per person and save some rom for desert! At 289 calls you deserve a treat.
Desert: yes your eating healthy and yes Having a desert tonight is fine even when trying to lose weight. Don't forget to keep up with our new year training routines and you can't go wrong.
Almond & cranberry Truffles
Melt 4 squares of high coco dark chocolate (green&blacks is a safe bet) in the microwave for around 40 seconds. Add 1/4 cup dried cranberries, 1/4 cup sliced almonds mix and separate into 4 truffle size treats. Put them back in the fridge and go have a green tea.
39 mins later when you have digested dinner go treat yourself to 2 truffles. 110cals each and they are fantastic for your skin.
