Fuss Free Healthy Snack

If you read my blog regularly, then you will know I have been trying to turn my bad eating habits around. For a year I was really good, eating lots of healthy fresh foods and keeping junk to a minimum, I was also trying to eat more mindfully so I would stop when I was full and only eat when I was hungry. I did really well and my weight stabilised and I felt good and had energy to bounce out of bed early every morning. Unfortunately I hit a wall earlier this year after Easter because we had way too much chocolate in the house and I was on a slippery slope that I couldn't get out of. I was making all the wrong food choices, eating junk and way too much of it.

I couldn't seem to snap myself out of it, I would stuff my face with so much rubbish and seem to develop this thirst for salty and sugary snacks to would just keep eating and eating, and when I didn't satisfy the feeling I would continue. When I reached this point I knew it was going to be really hard to try and turn it around.

It's happening slowly, I had to go cold turkey for a few days and be super strict on myself to try and break the cycle, now I just need to work hard on making healthy eating my habit rather than junk.

So I have been swapping bad snacks for things like celery and low fat dip, I love salad and vegetables so I just need to keep lots in the house then I won't find it so hard to be healthy and make the right choices.

Here's one of my fave snacks, Tesco beetroot, canellini bean and mint houmous with celery. The dip is so tasty and only 83 calories per 1/4 of the tub.

Doesn't that look so much better than a packet of crisps? I have had a couple of slip ups in the last week, so if you are reading this boyfriend, healthy food can be romantic too. I need your support to help me stay on track.
