Lose weight by EATING

Why do so many people think starvation or eating salads is the only way to lose weight?

I am here to tell you that that is incorrect information. And if anyone tells you that, please slap them and then slap them again for me. From here on out, I will be posting meals that are easy to make. They will all be so easy that a two-year-old could prepare the meals. Well, maybe a three old!

How can food help you lose weight?

If you are eating the right amount of carbs and protein, you will have the energy and drive to sweat. Everyone is different, and food may affect your system differently than your best friend, sister, mother, brother, auntie, or whomever else. So take time to learn your body. I’m not a nutritionist; therefore, I can tell you what to eat, but I will give you suggestions.

Foods you should eat sparingly

  1. Chocolate
  2. Bread
  3. Salt
  4. Fast Food
  5. Refined Carbohydrates
  6. High Fat Processed Foods

These are just a few but let’s focus on what you should eat.

Foods you should incorporate into your DIET 

  1. Chicken Thighs/Breast
  2. Fish
  3. Potatoes
  4. Rice
  5. Spinach
  6. Raspberries
  7. Blue Berries
  8. Carrots
  9. Green, Red, Orange Peppers
  10. Green Veggies
  11. WATER WATER WATER

Once again, I could go on and on, but here are the basics.

Meal of the day: Honey Barbecue Chicken Breast served over Coconut Rice

Items needed

  1. 4 Chicken Breast
  2. Honey Barbecue Sauce
  3. 1 Green Peppers
  4. 1 Red Peppers
  5. One onion
  6. 3 Carrots (I used purple, yellow, and orange because they are sweeter than just orange carrots)
  7. Coconut Milk
  8. Rice
  9. Water
  10. Add any Herbs (mine are fresh from the garden)

Let’s Cook It up

  • Clean chicken, slice in half
  • Season salt and pepper on both sides
  • Cook for 5 minutes on medium heat and flip for 5 more minutes
  • Add sliced veggies and herbs, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes
  • Drizzle Honey barbecue sauce on top and cover for 10 minutes

Prep Coconut Rice

  • 2 Cups rice, 1 can coconut milk, and 1/2 cup water.

If you don’t have a rice cooker, I urge you to get one.

Serve warm, and enjoy. Cheers to healthy and clean eating!

  1. Mmm, pretty good advice! I bet coconut milk would make some tasty cauliflower rice too! I usually replace rice and potatoes with another veggie, except for sweet potatoes (I have a weakness). Parsnips make great fries, for example (so do sweet potatoes), and zucchini spiralized is my spaghetti ☺️

    1. Oh yummmm Kim!!! That sounds fantastic, I use cauliflower and jasmine rice as well. Sweet potato fries are sent from heaven 🙌🏽😍
      Please share your zucchini pasta recipe and pics. I’ve been meaning to try that.

  2. This is such good and wise advice! So many people try and starve themselves and it just doesn’t work. This minute you go back to your old patterns you gain the weight back. Making better choices is such a better plan. BTW the chicken looks delicious. Hugs, C
