You are looking after yourself, thinking you’re fab, living the life and being healthy. You eat your vegies, throw in a bit of tofu, oodles of Zoodles (I’ll tell you about them later) and you think to yourself why not try a meal replacement shake? So healthy. We’re now feeling a collective appreciation for how amazing we are, resisting all of the temptations put in front of us. Ice-creams are even handed out to your desk at work and you said NO! Thank you, sigh, you love ice-cream. The days are getting easier and the moods swinging less, this is towards all but your husband of course as he incites his own shade of moodiness. Life is good. You are sitting there having a casual chat with a work colleague about the amazingness of life and how you love this new you and then she says it. ‘Have you seen how many teaspoons of sugar are in those meal replacement shakes? It’s around 5 teaspoons’ what?????? Here I’ve been thinking I’m doing the right thing yet I’m getting duped. ‘Diet’ products aren’t always what they say they are, read the labels I hear someone saying. Well… I did and now I’ve thrown my entire collection of very expensive, healthy, fix your life in 20 seconds products in the bin.
I hope you are all having a fabulous week.
I’ll get Matisse to introduce Zoodles for you.
- Get one zucchini
- Use a spiraliser and get the spaghetti strips going
- Grab some paper towel and get the excess water out
- Fry up in a skillet with a bit of oil and that is how you get Zoodles
To leave on a happy note shedding the sugar has shed 1.7kg in the last week.
Note: not all meal replacement shakes are high in sugar. Some use sugar alternatives.
