Pro Tip: Dress your food. Keep it interesting.

I know it can’t be just me who gets bored of eating the same food day in, day out. So todays post is about keeping your diet interesting. DRESS YOUR FOOD!

The better health channel tells us, “Eating many different foods helps maintain a healthy, well-balanced and interesting diet that provides adequate nutrition.”

Ok so the ultimate goal for anyone is to eat as much junk food as possible whilst maintaining a Miranda Kerr figure. Am I right? But let’s be honest, that is NEVER going to happen!

So my pro tip for you to keep motivated whilst on your diet/clean eating journey is to mix it up. Make your breakfast so deliciously appealing that even if  the choice for fast food was available you would still pick your healthy meal. Its honestly as simple as taking a bit of extra time and dressing up your food. Sick of a boring fruit salad? Put them on skewers. Sick of boring porridge? Cover your bowl with seasonal fruit and nuts. It’s so simple!!!

And what’s better? You will be able to proudly upload a picky of your creation to instagram and hashtag healthy eating and watch the likes roll in. :)

Eating healthy can be challenging. Just remember to mix it up and keep things interesting. Dress up your food, your body (and your instagram followers) will thanks you for it :)

How to spice up boring oats/porridge

Eating plain oats every day is boring. Don’t get my wrong it’d be full of fibre and extremely nutritious but zzzzzzz… So to spice up my boring oats at breakky I decided to start playing with the flavours a little. I now add cinnamon and green apple to my morning oats and it just gives it that bit of punch that takes oats to the next level. The warmness of the oats with the crunchy green apples, yum! This morning I tried it with crushed walnuts as well. Will keep you posted if I come up with any other great flavour combos.

Trying to keep things interesting to maintain a healthy diet is ever so important so I thought I’d share my new favourite breakky recipe.
Sunday night I put 1/2 cup of oats and 1/2 cup of water into a bowl and put it in the fridge overnight. In the morning I added cinnamon, yoghurt, nuts and grated apple. On top I decorated with shredded coconut and strawberries! For a first attempt it was pretty good but I found the water didn’t make it appetising so last night I put almond milk in instead.
The results were amazing! So much more creamy and delicious!

So here are my photos! Hope you might try it out and enjoy!!
Ps top one is with water. Bottom one is with almond milk.
