The last few days I tried to eat healthy and balanced and I have to say that I have a lot of fun trying out new recipes!! During the last months I ate too much Pizza, Ramen, Onigiri and other delicious but double-edged dishes.. I really like to eat and so does my boyfriend but while I’m getting fatter and fatter he remains slim as a salamander . So now I decided to go on a “serious” diet and he is planning to start to train again. I cut out bread, pasta and rice (except for one day a week where I can eat brown rice.. I know it sounds awful especially when you’re used to the sticky and rich Japanese white rice ) because I think these are the first things to banish if you want to lose weight. I renounce eating red meat and eat lean fish or chicken breast with lots of vegetables. For breakfast I eat a moderate bowl of sugar-free muesli (granola). I started this diet only two days ago but I think my tummy has already gotten flatter! I try to make delicious dishes because I don’t want any backfalls due to a feeling of dissatisfaction after the meals. Since I’m not following a specific diet or recipe book every day is a challenge but also an adventure since I’m inventing and cooking recipes I’ve never tried before . Sure it takes a little more time than just frying some chicken nuggets in the pan or than to serve a bowl of Spaghetti with tomato sauce but it’s totally worth it! From now on I will take a picture of every meal I cook and if I find the time I will describe on my blog as good as I can how I prepared it.
