Do you have a New Year’s resolution?
Is it to get more energy, to have balanced moods, or to control your weight?
Maybe I can help. Read on, my friend.
Cooking your own food is one of the best things that you can do to improve your own health, for so many reasons:
- You cut out packaged food, which means you will be reducing the amount of additives such as sugar, salt and preservatives
- Cooking your own food means that you retain more of the important vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin B group and vitamin C which normally would be lost in processing and deteriorate on the shelf during storage
- You generally get a bigger variety and serve of vegetables
- You’ll be able to take control of your own portion size
If you can get comfortable at cooking your own meals, you will make the biggest and most long lasting changes you’ll ever make that will benefit your health.
‘I’m not a good cook’, I hear you say. You’re probably rolling your eyes, audibly groaning and about to close this window. But wait! I implore you – read on!
I get it, if you’re not a whiz in the kitchen, cooking for yourself can be overwhelming, boring and stressful.
Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be this way – the better you get at cooking, the more you come to enjoy it.
That’s why I made this ebook and meal plan – to help with one of the biggest hurdles of health, the struggle of cooking for yourself – this was created for the kitchen beginner.
In my clinical experience I realised that one of the key barriers to people improving their health was their diet, and one of the biggest barriers to improving their diet? The ability and enjoyment of cooking.
‘What can be done about this’, thinks I. ‘I need to provide people with the tools to learn how to cook, but there’s so much more they need to know with this!’
So I got to work and created a 3 week meal plan and nutrition guide designed to help people who struggle to know what to do in the kitchen, but it’s also going to be great for those people who want to know how to eat well, how to eat mindfully, and how to plan their own meals. If you’re a good cook, you’ll still enjoy this ebook and meal plan.
Something you might not know about cooking is that it actually helps to improve digestion – did you know that digestion begins in the mind? This is called the cephalic phase -here is when we start to think about food, anticipate food, and that’s when we start to make all of our digestive acids and enzyme. If we have good production of acids and enzymes this means the better we will be able to better digest our food and therefore the less bloating and digestive symptoms we will have.
This meal plan has been built around the concept of whole food. Whole food essentially means that food in itself has been minimally altered by processing and so it retains the more nutritional goodness.
While one the biggest things that you can do to improve your health is to start cooking for yourself, there’s so many barriers today – one of which is the lack of confidence in the kitchen. In my meal plan and ebook I have threaded throughout tips on how to cook so that you will finish this guide with more confidence to keep navigating the kitchen, as well as making your own meal plan.
There’s so many other things in this meal plans such as a guide to mindful eating and knowing how to balance your nutrients throughout the day.
This ebook and meal plan has been 3 years in the making (most of the delay comes from having had two kids in the process of writing it) but it’s also because I’ve put a lot of love and effort into it – writing the content, creating and testing the recipes, balancing the meals and menus nutritionally as well as designing a shopping list to go with the meal plan.
But ultimately what I want is for you to find it easy to follow, and simple to implement. What I want is for you to have to do minimum effort for maximum gain.
So if your goal is to lose weight, or to get more energy, or to feel better in yourself, then I strongly suggest checking out this meal plan.
For those with food intolerances, you can make substitutions if you need to be dairy free or wheat free, but currently this meal plan is not designed around avoiding food intolerances or allergies. It’s also not suitable for vegetarians or vegans (but I do have something in the works for for you guys).
All you need to do is follow this link and purchase the meal plan.
