Trying to follow a strict ‘diet’ plan - eating the same few foods, day after day, can get boring pretty quickly.
And boredom is so commonly the cause of a healthy balanced diet toppling over.
This is why it’s so important to learn healthy eating skills, to be able to design your own meals, to be able to cook in healthier ways and to make smart eating out choices (to name a few). Because diets are temporary and lifestyles are forever.
I put this lunch together with quite literally scraps I found in the cupboard, fridge and freezer. I look at this meal and I see complex carbohydrates (which includes fibre), protein, vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals. I know if I had avocado or seeds I would sprinkle some on top to get in some healthy fats, but I don’t feel guilty that I didn’t. I see a money-saving, waste reducing nourishing meal. But most importantly, I see a meal I’m going to enjoy because it’s foods I love.
[Montreal] The lamb neck cavatelli was rich with nicely braised meat, while the roasted Seabream was moist and tender—but at $42 you wouldn’t think they would serve it with a split beurre blanc sauce. Their Buttermilk Fried Chicken was also textbook, but they should have been called nuggets, with their size. The thinly shaved grilled lamb heart was a nice surprise though, having almost the texture of steak with the mildest gamey flavour. @lebremner

Basil, the popular herb( Ocimum species) is said to be originated in India and was introduced to Europe in the sixteenth century. Snails love basil, and young plants also needs protection from frost. Once Basil is growing strongly pinching out the flower heads keeps the plant producing leaves. Basil has aniseed flavour. It is very good friends with a ripe tomato and extra virgin olive oil. Basil is also a favourite flavouring in South-East Asian cookery, appearing in curries , soups etc. I pick the leaves when required and use it in pastas, soups salads etc. And also micro leaves to use as a garnish.

From SUFFERING to RECOVERING 🙏 .
(Long non food related post incoming)
I came across the picture on the left, earlier this morning and it really hit me. I remember taking it after my first half century (50 mile ride) back in the beginning of 2012. That was probably the only time I smiled all year. Only a few months after it was taken, I was bed ridden for the majority of my days and I could barely walk because of how weak and malnourished I was. (I probably lost about 30ish pounds after this picture was taken, I was at 142lbs that morning because I used to weigh myself every day. .
Anyone that’s dealt with any sort of mental health issue will tell you, that it’s almost impossible to rationalize the voices and negative thoughts that are faced on a daily basis. Simply put, I COULDN’T because I wasn’t ready too. Until I decided for myself that I HAD to do it for myself if I wanted a shot at a normal life again. .
I was tired of feeling cold ALL the time.
I wanted to feel emotions again.
I wanted to be able to play with my little brother.
I wanted to smile more.
I wanted to be able to not obsessively weigh myself.
I wanted to be able to not subject myself to hours of exercise, simply because I ate more the day before.
I wanted to not wake up and hate the person I looked at in the mirror.
I wanted to be strong (physically) .
My job requires me to entertain you all, to make you laugh, and to make you go “WHAT THE F*CK did he do this time?!”. But quite frankly, that’s not what I feel I was put on this earth to do. My goal is to do all of the above BUT to also help all of you out there (that are struggling) to realize that there is ALWAYS a way out and that you are NOT your depression, your eating disorder, or whatever mental illness that you suffer from. .
I remember thinking back all of those years ago. “If I left this earth tomorrow, what would people remember me for?” It had nothing to do with the amount of exercise I did, the food I did or didn’t eat, or how “thin” I was. It mattered who I was as a PERSON and the message I put out into the world, and the same goes for TODAY! Never forget how important and special you are to the world.
