But what is "normal food"?

It's pretty sad to think that a tuna salad sandwich is off limits. But this is a reality for many folks who lead a restrictive approach to their eating habits. Initially instigated by the Tupperware lifestyle. I too felt like this at one point.

So here's some simple ground rules I use when it comes to meals. You can apply these ground rules to the foods you buy whilst on the go, or, you can prep. But see the prepping as a way of saving money- not because you need to avoid certain convenience foods:

Eat veggies 
No more force feeding yourself plain cold broccoli. You can use crudités, salads, soups & stews, even pack it all into a giant sandwich.

And who doesn't love a giant sandwich.

Eat protein
Again it doesn't need to be steamed chicken breast in your Tupperware tub. You could use ready to eat options such as tinned fish, pre-cooked meats cottage cheese, just make sure there's a decent portion of protein in each meal.

Don't restrict carbs
Too often I see people cutting out carbohydrates thinking it's a magical way to drop body weight, when actually it just leads to a very unhealthy relationship with food; an all or nothing mentality!

Carbs are not the enemy. 

Weight loss (or weight gain) comes from being in a calorie deficit (or surplus) not from some magical meal frequency, nutrient timing, or by cutting out a major food group.

So that tuna salad sandwich pretty much ticks all these ground rules.

Aim to have a balance between prepping food and utilising convenience foods. 

For example, we use the muscle food pizza once a week, for the days when, to be quite honest, I just don't want to cook.

I'll usually accompany this with a glass of wine too!

On the go, we stock up on the ready to eat pouch meals, which are so much easier than carrying around Tupperware tubs. Once you're done you throw away the pouch and are very much free from Tupperware!

At home, we set an example to the children of how to cook and prepare tasty meals. But living within true moderation and balance, not a trapped with an existence of steamed vegetables and plain chicken.
