Healthy Eating Giveaway

October 2, 2015

Today I went out running, it was the first time in ages and it felt good. Whilst I am fairly fit, I walk miles every week, I find that exercise can really boost your morning and set you up for the day. I have struggled to run over the summer, I found my asthma was really bad. I suspect that this was due to the large amounts of long grass and wild flowers that appeared on every grass verge in the council area. They are doing their best to help bees by setting up these conservation areas. I am all in favour of helping bees and the wild flowers did look nice. However the large fields of long grass really upped the pollen count and I am sure it affected me.

Last week the council decided to cut the long grass, carefully mowing around the wild flowers. As a result I have been able to breathe more easily and was able to go out running today. It is exhilarating running as the sun rises, watching the foggy tendrils drift across the fields in the crisp morning air.

Even when I am not exercising I always try to eat a healthy diet. I cook most of my meals from scratch and try to include plenty of vegetables. When you work all day and come home at night tired, it can be difficult to pick up your pans and start cooking. I find meal planning is the key. I plan quick to make meals for week nights and often use my slow cooker so they are ready when I come in. I also make some meals at the weekends so I can just reheat them during the week. This stops me reaching for ready meals or throwing a pizza into the oven. I also try and pack my lunch which allows me to make tasty sandwich fillings like thai chicken sandwiches.
