Healthy Eating Essentials

When you're changing your diet, or lifestyle, you need to make it easier for yourself, this can be done by having lots of food options. Otherwise, when you get hungry you tend to eat things you'll regret  and that's always a terrible feeling. These food items are great for food at home as well as at school. 

Rice Cakes
I'm so glad I bought these, I'd seen them quite a bit and they're amazing! You can put so many toppings on them, tuna, avocado and tomato, ham and cheese, butter and marmite etc delicious!

The Collective - Yogurt Suckies 
I love these so much, I freeze them and just take then just grab one for school or for a snack at home.  I always great the strawberry flavor because it's called "sassy strawberry" 

Fruit & Vegies
Yes I know, everyone has fruit, but do you have a good range and enough of it? You need to stock up on lots of different fruits, but eat then before they go off. Apples, grapes, peaches, nectarines, berries, grapefruit, bananas, melon, pineapple just get em along with the Vegies

Frozen Fruit 
Essential, frozen berries, mango, peaches? Are so great for smoothies, it makes things a lot easier, also frozen berries are good for snacks 

Almond Milk 
It's a nice alternative to normal milk and it is really good for you, milk can be quite bad for your skin, I think it's the calcium in it, almond milk takes a bit to get used to but it's very nice 

These are great for salads, especially for lunch, it goes great with some roast veggies and beetroot, you could add some chicken in it or tuna. It's also incredibly filling 

I'm not saying full yourself with cheddar, but a few slices of cheese doesn't hurt, especially if you had a few slices of cheese with pear slices, it's filling and a nice combo 

So this is an essential for anyone, eggs are just a general essential you need them for cooking as well. Eggs are great for breakfast or lunch, have one on toast within avocado, or with some mushrooms, make it into a veggie omelet - so many options 

I'm always running out of yogurt and it really annoys me, because it's so good to have with a bit of muesli, or for a muesli parfait or with fruit as a nice snack 

Another definite essential, it's great for breakfast (obviously) to have on a bowel with yogurt and fruit, or to put in a parfait, even sprinkle a bi lt on your smoothie 

They're energizing, good for you and easy to grab. It's a good idea to make a mix or almonds, cashews, pistachios, Brazil nuts, macadamias - try avoid peanuts because they aren't that good for you 

Almond Butter 
a nice alternative to peanut butter, also better for you, it's lovely on Vogel toast and very filling 

Dark Chocolate 
It's low in fat and sugar and is actually beneficial, just don't eat too much of it! A few pieces with some nuts and goji berries is delicious 

If you know which ones to get (not loaded with additives etc) wraps are great, a lovely thing to eat for lunch which is healthy and fills you up, fill it with salad and chicken or tuna etc 

Me being me, I have probably left about 10 things out which I will remember later, but this is what came to me.
