Three Lifestyle Habits For 2017

I love food – good food with wholesome ingredients. So as you can well imagine I do not believe in dieting or restrictive eating. However, I do believe in a few lifestyle changes or tips as a I like to call them that can and will make you feel energized.

Mindful Eating

Practise Mindful or Meditative Eating. I was introduced to this by my cycling trainer Max Schute phd. Essentially be mindful of every bite of food you take and enjoy it as you chew slowly. Too many of us literally in hale our food either on the go or in your car driving to and from work. Choose a place to eat everyday and better yet enjoy your meals at a set table with family or friends.

Hours-of-Sleeping

Get 8 hours of sleep every night

Get Enough Sleep. Experts say that number is 7 1/2 to 8 hours every single night. Go to bed early before 10pm if you can because late nights can often lead to late night snacking. Try not to use or engage with any electronic devices at least 60 minutes before you go to sleep.

 

Get Walking ! On average I really try to walk about 20-30 minutes per day when I am not working out. If you have one of those fitness trackers try to aim for 7500 steps a day. Many recommend 10 000 steps per day as a goal which for most is unattainable. During the winter months make sure you have good insulated walking boots. If you don’t want to walk outside try the local mall or large business centres in the downtown core.

Top 10 Prepared Meals

And The Winner Is !Not just for kids anymore! Sicilian Chicken Meatballs in A Marinara Sauce is the top selling prepared meal as chosen by you. Val (our incredible sous chef) hand rolls them then slow bakes them in the oven. The secret ingredient is parmesan cheese inside the meatball. You can serve them with pasta, over rice, on its own with salad,  or as one customer told me – “I make a meatball sandwich”.
