CREATING A BALANCED DIET

This is going to be a fun-filled post. If you are still struggling to come up with a plan to reverse your unnatural and basically unhealthy eating habits, then I hope this post also ends up being a healthy source of inspiration. It could well be defined as mind over matter. There’s also the necessary urge of setting your mind towards something that you are determined to pull off for once and for all. I also believe that if I could do this then so can you.

I may have a degree and some writing experience, work/life experience basically, behind me but let me be modest for a moment. I happen to believe that the majority of you reading this post are a lot more intelligent, skilled and talented than I am. Does this sound as though I’m letting myself down? It might be, so please forgive me if I let you down at this point. Look at it this way. This exercise that I undertook, took no longer than twenty or so minutes to complete.

There are those of you who will probably put a lot more thought and effort into creating your own daily/weekly balanced eating plan than I did. But then again, this exercise was deliberate. Now that I think about it, it was an experiment into what can be accomplished by basically sitting down at one’s desk and assertively using one’s noodle (the brain, for those who did not conceptualize the slang expression). Let’s just say also that it’s a work in progress, subject to change.

Here’s my new eating plan for the weeks ahead.

So what do you make of this plan then? Did you notice anything specific about my personalized eating plan that may have caught your eye? And would you have done it any differently from me? You should and probably have your own answers to this. For the purposes of this exercise, and bearing in mind the creative writing universe, there are no right or wrong answers to what you may have to add. At this point, and I hope this will be the case, going forward, you should all have something different to add.

Because we are all unique and have different tastes and preferences. Why always do what others do? That would be bland, wouldn’t it? What I’ve done here is focus on those healthy foods that I’m currently getting the most enjoyment out of right now. I’ve also had a look at the budget and taken into account practical and time saving preparation time. This all takes into account my preferences and current circumstances.
