How Many Of These Are In Your Shopping Basket ?
Most, but not all, of us are fortunate to be able to eat a wide variety of foods. Some of us are guilty of over eating and there are still far too many people in this world that are going hungry. We have seen the increase in food banks that many rely on ...... we have children going to school without eating breakfast because their parent has had to decide, does the home have fuel or food. Nothing is ever perfect, and we can only do our best to help others not as fortunate.
The basket in the picture has many great vegetables, and that to me represents just one part of my menu plans. If you are fortunate enough to grow your own, or can afford organic all the better. During my weekly meals I love to ensure a good selection of meat, fish, poultry, eggs, dairy, healthy fats, small handfuls of nuts such as almonds or macadamias, non starchy vegetables such as broccoli, kale, swede, plus fruits such as blackberries and raspberries. This isn't by any means an extensive, or exhaustive list here, there are many more foods that I include in my menu plans , you only have to look around the blog to see a wide variety of menu ideas ..... but of course do take into account any allergies or underlying health conditions you may have.
Living the Low Carb High Fat lifestyle or LCHF for short has been a way of life for me for seven years now and I just wouldn't have it any other way. In my opinion, and as others have found, it is a great lifestyle for diabetics and non diabetics alike ..... but then as this blog is called 'The Low Carb Diabetic' you just knew I was going to say that didn't you?
Next time you go shopping, choose wisely, eat and live as healthily as possible. We only have one body - make the decision to look after it as best you can.
All the best Jan
