This morning I didn’t feel like eating bread or granola for breakfast. Must be the hormones playing tricks again. I was just craving for protein. It must also be my body’s way of telling me that I need more nutrients before Aunt Flow visits soon.
I had a handful of crunchy walnuts and pecan, which the mil roasted over the weekend. And a big bowl of sweet beet root carrot soup with yummy tender fleshy pork bones. Eating healthy proteins can really fill me up until lunch, without any craving for something sweet.
Did you know that protein is the single most important nutrient for weight loss and a better looking body? A high protein intake boosts metabolism, reduces appetite and changes several weight-regulating hormones and it is scientifically proven (1, 2, 3).
Protein can help you lose weight and belly fat, and it works via several different mechanisms.
Lunch today was roasted pork bone porridge with dried scallops.
Breakfast for Alycia and Cass on a Monday morning yesterday was walnut wholemeal bread ~ spread with butter for Cass and avocado for Alycia. Snack box for recess was steamed ‘siew mai’.
After over a week of living on semi solid food, Alycia finally got used to having braces on her teeth. She is eating pretty normally now ~ even chocolate chip cookies, hard muruku and nuts. Way to go girl. I knew you could do it!
