What are the benefits of a healthy lifestyle for you?

So what are the benefits of a healthy lifestyle for you? love the title already😊

Benefits are amazing and as an ex-professional athlete I have experienced this myself and still do I take this very seriously because we need to be careful with our health (says an ex-professional boxer😊

 

So with this blog what are the benefits of a healthy lifestyle I will give you some great insight on what these benefits are.

So we all know we should eat way much healthier than we do now but still, It ain’t easy, why is that? Look around we have all those greasy, sweet, salty stuff which we oh so adore around us. But now worries Mitchell Blog ‘’what are the benefits of a healthy lifestyle to help you to motivate you.

So let’s crack on, not too much chit-chat and let me show you a what are the benefits of a healthy lifestyle for you!


So first, what is a healthy lifestyle?

As an ex-professional athlete, myself my definition of a healthy lifestyle is very simple: working on your health well-being every day it’s a lifestyle which includes: Eating healthy and regular exercise.

I also must say it’s not a 1-day thing, it’s a lifestyle.

By eating healthy, exercising regularly you also feel good. Let’s be honest it feels good looking in the mirror and looking very fit which is great for your self-image which is great for your mental state, which is very important because there is where everything starts between your ears.


Benefits of a healthy lifestyle 

So, let’s jump straight away to some great benefits of a healthy lifestyle!

• It can improve your self -confidence because by eating healthy and exercising you start to look good which helps you to feel good as well
• Control weight
• Preventing of heart diseases like heart diseases, stroke, diabetes etc.
• According to HelpGuide.com, it can help against depression
• Reduce stress
• Keeps you positive
• Regular exercise and a balanced weight can add years to your life
• Keeps you mentally strong
• Fewer wrinkles by eating the right stuff like a lot of water content food as in fruits and vegetables keep your skin hydrated
• Endorphin released makes you see the world in a positive light so great for your mental state


Exercise and healthy eating 

I have personally exercised my whole life as a little kid gymnastics was my favourite school lessons loved it with a passion😊 just the feeling of running around, competing with others, winning competitions made my whole day good again. Whatever happened when I was sporting I always felt good for those minutes the adrenalin rush was pumping through my whole body.
Running for example I don’t exactly when it happens but after you have a runner for a while you just go in a high called endorphin and I can tell you that is a really good feeling. Is that I can conquer the whole world feeling its really good try it if you haven’t yet.

 


So what are some benefits specific to exercise? 

Better sleep– Different studies have shown that it has a great impact on a better sleep
Bone density-Exercise like weight exercises is great for bone density especially for elder people who are dealing with osteoporosis (a bone disease which makes the bone more brittle and fragile)
Joints and muscles– Exercise also keeps not only your bone but also your joints and muscles strong
Weight control– Exercise with eating healthy can help so much with weight loss as you lose a lot of calories
Reduces the chances of heart diseases– Exercise makes your heart stronger and helps the circulation


So what are some benefits specific to healthy eating?

Of course, weight control– something we all want right getting rid of those extra love handles😊
You’ll eat less– And this is so true by eating healthy products like brown rice, vegetables and a lot of water you will be full of all the good stuff which will make you stronger in those temptations moments when those cravings moments starts.
• Having a healthy diet so eating all the good stuff like vegetables and fruits reduce the risks of getting diseases like heart diseases etc.
• Eating healthy impact your body in a great way because all the vitamins, minerals and all the good stuff you get in is a great investment for your health
• Eating healthy can boost your energy level and which will impact your exercise sessions


Why should you make it your goal to live a healthy lifestyle? 

Why? That’s a very important question why but it’s also the question which will help you when you go through some tough times and believe me they will come when you make that decision to live a healthy lifestyle.
Those MacDonald’s commercial will start to pop up from everywhere. Those Krispy creams store will pop up from everywhere. Those KFC’s… you get my point😊
With every goal in life, I would suggest to get yourself a piece of paper grab a pen and start to write down 10 reasons why you want to start to live a healthy lifestyle.

 

For example:

So, I can be on this earth longer to spend with my loved ones
So, I can look better and have a better self-esteem
So, I can feel more energetic in life
So, I can reduce the chance of getting some health issues

And the list goes on, believe it me when those hard times come to grab yourself that paper or document and start reading your why’s it will help


So, there you have it people the end😊

A Quick easy healthy lunch idea!

So what do you do when you had one of those crazy hectic days but you still want to eat healthy at work? First of all, you read this blog: quick easy healthy lunch idea!

 

Sometimes you have those kind of hectic days more than others but that’s okay. So even though it’s much cheaper to prep it yourself at home, sometimes you just quick have to go to the grocery store the day before or on that same day to have a quick easy healthy lunch.

 

From my previous blogs  you can see that I always prepare my food in a good way so personally, I don’t like to spend my hard earned money just knowing I have some food at home. But having said that, even I sometimes fall into the trap of being unprepared 🙂

 

So that’s why I have written this blog, so the next time you need to buy something healthy but you can’t find something healthy,just go to my website and check out this quick easy healthy lunch idea blog to remind you of some great, simple ideas😊

 

This quick easy healthy lunch idea is so easy you might think; wow why haven’t I thought about this or why don’t I do this more often.

 

So let’s crack on, not too much chit chat and let me show you a quick easy healthy lunch idea!

 


So what to pick if you need to make a quick decision in the grocery shop? 

Already prepped salad

Avocado
Pack of olives
Cherry tomatoes
Lemon
Some whole wheat bread or microwave brown rice


So what’s next?

Salads are already in a bowl so the only thing you need to do is cut the avocado in chunks and throw it in the salad bowl

Add the olives and the cherry tomatoes

Cut the lemon in half and juice it over the salad for a healthy dressing

Eat it with some of the brown rice or whole wheat bread

And people that’s it! If you don’t want to buy junk outside on the streets and still want to eat healthy: here you go a quick easy healthy lunch idea!


And today’s Headliner ingredient of the day is? 

Olives

When I was younger I could not understand how people could eat olives, for me it was just sour grapes nothing more nothing less.
I can’t remember when it was, I think it was when I met my wife and she ate olives that I started to eat olives but boy oh boy when I started to get the hang of it, it was a done deal. I can literally now eat a whole pack of olives in 1 go..easy😊


Did you know?

1. That olive is a powerhouse of antioxidants, Studies have shown that eating olives can raise the levels of glutathione which is a powerful             oxidant in the blood.
2. Olives are fruits
3. Olives have an antioxidant called Tyrosol which helps prevent heart disease
4. That they support your cardiovascular health
5. That they are great for your eyes and skin

Simple baby food ideas

Simple baby food ideas, I’m sure you love it already!

 

All credit for this blog goes to my wife because she organized everything perfectly. She came up with simple baby food ideas to make sure that when our little one was 6 months old (the age that they are allowed to have solid food) she was eating healthy every single day.

 

So that inspired me to write this blog about simple baby food ideas! And that’s what we want in this life right? Simple and easy to make baby food ideas.

 

The result of our weaning strategy, is a beautiful, happy toddler who loves food and not just sweet food but literally eating all of her vegetables like it’s a sorbet ice cream😊

 

So let’s crack on, not too much chit chat and let me guide you through this simple baby food ideas blog😊


Baby food ideas number 1- Blend,steam and freeze your baby food  

Check out my review on the Tommee Tippee baby food steamer,blender

 

Fruit and vegetables

 

Why?

  1. By steaming fruit and vegetables for your young babies, you kill the bacteria’s so you can be sure your baby will only get the best food in her tummy.
  2. It is going to save you a lot of time.
  3. It’s going to save you money (got your attention now huh😊 )

 

 

Instructions

  •    My wife would first buy a lot of fruits and vegetables, which you can get really cheap from the market (check out one of my blogs of this)
  •    She would wash everything and then it all in blend size chunks
  •    My wife would then steam, blend it in our Tommee Tippee Baby Food Steam Blender (check out my review about this awesome machine       from Amazon where I will explain exactly how to do it)
  •    Once everything is done, she would use an empty ice cube tray which you have in different sizes and which you can buy very cheap in your     poundshop or dollarshop
  •    Once frozen she would then get freezer bags and mix things up, for example, one bag with a banana cubes and a beetroot cubes or a bag     with pear and kale cubes

And there you have it, just get the bags out of the freezer a day before consumption and warm it up it up in the microwave. If you don’t want to use the microwave, try the Bain Marie method to warm up the food.

 

Check out my review on the Tommee Tippee baby food steamer,blender

 

This is what you can do with vegetables, fruit and chicken. My wife would just put it in the oven and then blend it in the blender and freeze it the same way.

How easy is that! And again this will save you a lot of time and money, just get out of the freezer what you need and warm it up😊


Baby food ideas number 2-Delicious baby breakfast 

 

Now you know you have fruits in the freezer, so you can get them out of the freezer the day before and warm them up with your baby porridge. Trust me, your little baby will love it😊


Baby food idea number 3- Start with bitter vegetables first 

 

A lot of times parents start with sweet fruits as the first solid food for their babies, which is not bad because its healthy. The only danger with this is that your little one gets used early to that sweet flavor.

 

And once they get used to that sweet flavor, it’s harder to get them used to bitter vegetables like spinach, kale and avocado for example.


 

And there you have it: simple baby food ideas!

 

I would definitely recommend the steam and blend method. You will have so much healthy self-made food in-house so you will know exactly what you’re giving your little one. Check out my review on the Tommee Tippee baby food steamer,blender

So the question is: Which foods are superfoods?

 

You might have it heard and read about it so many times: SUPERFOODS! But what are superfoods and like the title says: which foods are superfoods?

 

That was my question as well so that’s why my long journey started to go on a mission and find out which foods are superfoods

 

So first of all what are superfoods? According to Josh Axe DNM, DC, CNS certified doctor of natural medicine, chiropractic, and clinical nutritionist ( Man I want a title like that😊) Superfoods are foods which are more nutrient-dense than other foods in their categories. So they stand more out then ordinary. So they are higher in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants,so they give your body the more nutrients your body need.

 

And there goes all my energy wasting thinking that superfoods are like the super incredible vitamins which you can only find on Mars in a cave😊

 

So please next time you hear or read super foods just think about Superfoods are foods which are more nutrient-dense than other foods in their categories but the commercial industry just likes to hype it up with the name SUPERFOODS!

So let’s crack on, not too much chit chat and let me show you 5 super foods and their benefits 

 


 

So in this blog, I will discuss 5 foods which I love which are described as superfoods:

Cacao

Kale

Sweet potatoes

  • Sleeping problems no worries because of the choline in sweet potatoes is enough to get you knocked out😊
  • Sweet potatoes may help control a healthy blood pressure and protect against cancer

A great tip: for Monday lunch we always have leftovers from the weekend and on Monday we cook for Tuesday and Wednesday. And Wednesday we cook for Thursday and Friday.

And then its weekend again and the cycle repeats😊

 


Tip #1

If you’re on a really tight budget instead of animal protein which can be a lot more expensive I would suggest buying a things like a canned beans or kidney beans so you still get a lot of protein in.

Where you would buy meat for £3 or more you can buy canned beans, chickpeas for just a couple of cents.

 

Tip #2

If you know you’re a sweet tooth, instead of buying  a 4 pack snickers just buy 1 and try to eat it once a week, that’s it. Or if you are really struggling with it, don’t buy any sweets at all in your house.

Did you know that?

To stay healthy and fit exercise only contributes 20% and healthy food 80% didn’t knew that huh, now you know😊

A simple tuna pasta recipe

Besides world peace etc. what we also need is a simple tuna pasta recipe just to make life easier right😉

 

 

Learned about this pasta when I came to the UK in 2010 from a roommate then. It’s such a simple and quite cheap pasta but it’s really good, so I had to write this simple tuna pasta recipe blog for Y’all😊

 

The only thing that was missing in this simple tuna pasta recipe was vegetables but this is solved now as I came up with a great vegetable which suites this pasta beautifully.

 

So like you know me not to much chit chat without an example so let’s crack on and let me show you a simple tuna pasta recipe, enjoy😊


 

So, what do you need?  

 

1 pack of whole wheat pasta 

1 pack of kale

2 0r 3 cans of tuna

Philadelphia cheese

Half of an onion

1 garlic

Olive oil

Salt and pepper


First step Prep time

 

Mince the onion and garlic


Next step 

 

Remove the stems of the kale and cut the leaves it in even size chunks

 

Wash the leaves and let it dry

 

You can the cook the kale but what I Personally prefer is to steam the kale for just a couple of minutes to keep all the good stuff in the kale. Whatever you do don’t do it too long otherwise you lose all the good vitamins, minerals etc.

 

Once its ready cool it off with cold water or if you have cooked it, get it out if the pan and put it another bowl so it doesn’t cook further leaving you with alone with a vegetable with not all the good stuff still in it.


Next step   

 

Fill up a pan with cold water and boil it up

 

Add the same time boil up another pan if you go to steam your kale

 

Once it reaches its boiling point ad generously some salt to it and what I love to do is to add a little bit of olive oil to the water

 

Let it cook 8-10 min- and what I always say taste your food when preparing so go ahead and taste once a while if the pasta is good yes or no

 

Once its ready cool it off with cold water and put the pasta away


Next step

 

In the meanwhile, depending on how fast you are otherwise you can also do this before you boil up the water, mince the onion and the garlic


Next step  

 

Cook the onions and garlic until they get a light brown color

 

Add the pasta to it and stir everything around

 

Then add some scoops of Philadelphia cheese to it

 

Add some salt and pepper to it and then stir everything around for just a couple of minutes because you don’t want to get all the good stuff out of kale.


Finish   

 

And that’s it! And if you made the whole pack of pasta just put the rest in containers and enjoy it another day which saves you again on a lot of time and money.

So there you have it, a simple tuna pasta recipe quick and simple 😊
