Healthy Food Ideas To Moderate & Balance

healthy food measure and balanceToday I’d like to share with you a few suggestions for a daily healthy food meal plan to use as a guide in combination with our It Works Products.  Although our wraps are great for losing inches it doesn’t necessarily mean the you shouldn’t be maintaining a well-balanced diet that includes good, nutritious healthy food.  Honestly guys it’s not at all difficult to do and is REALLY worth the effort as it will make your wrapping experience a whole lot more effective and powerful.  Plus the kilograms are going to fall of twice as fast!!We would never suggest that because you are wrapping you are at liberty to binge on unhealthy food.  Unfortunately our products are not a licence to stuff yourself with junk and greasy takeaway.  You will still be required to cultivate a diet of healthy food and routine based exercise.  Of course that doesn’t imply that you are NEVER permitted the occasion treat or that you need to suddenly become a gym junkie….ugh I can’t think of anything worse (my apologies to any readers who might be one but it’s just not for me).  Put simply, like anything that can cause issues or negative habit-forming behaviours when done in excess, everything should be well moderated.

Healthy food ideas

To give you a few healthy food ideas I’ve done a little research and come up with a list that will taste just as yummy as any takeaway and will give your body wraps a more powerful punch so you’re losing weight twice as fast!

Breakfast Smoothies

I’m talking about the ones that you blend yourself not the store-bought ones that are loaded with sugar and excess calories.  When you use healthy food ingredients like milk, spinach, fruit and yoghurt you have the perfect morning or lunchtime snack.  Plus smoothies can be extremely filling so they are a perfect way to stop yourself from snacking on chips or chocolate throughout the day.

A smoothie in the morning for breakfast is the perfect start to your day that will energize you and give you brain power!  This yummy smoothie from Delish looks pretty awesome and best of all it’s green so it matches the colour of my web site.  It’s called the “Green Dream Smoothie” and it’s definitely one to try.  You’ll find the ingredients and directions at Green Dream Smoothie.  Might give it a whirl myself and share the results with you at a later date.

And finally no healthy hearty meal plan can be without a sumptuous, tasty, spicy and aromatic curry dish.  A fantastic way to fill an empty stomach this recipe is packed with enough healthy food to satisfy any palette. This particular recipe from Dara at Cookin Canuck can pack a punch so if you aren’t acquainted with a curry that’s a little heavier on spice you can alter the recipe to suit.  Always remember to keep ice-cold water close at hand and fresh bread to balance the spice with something a little blander.  Are you brave enough to give Mum’s Savory Beef & Potato Curry a whirl?  Please share your results below.
