Welcome back to week eleven of the weekly menu plan’s!
This week I have a bit of a confession to make, for a long time I have been interested in learning more about this Low Carb Healthy Fat (LCHF) way of eating. As a researcher in the area of physical activity and health I get to mix with a range of professionals in the health promotion area. Some of the colleagues I have attended conferences with and greatly respect have been very influential in the promotion and education of the LCHF lifestyle.
So a few weeks ago I bit the bullet and finally purchased their book ‘What The Fat‘ and I have started implementing some (or as much as I can) of the LCHF way of eating into my lifestyle. I know this isn’t for everyone and trust me I have known about this for a few years now and it has taken me that long to come around and learn more about LCHF and give it a go. Please know I am in no way associated with the ‘What The Fat’ book, I don’t receive any kickbacks at all if you go and check it out from my recommendation. Also just a reminder I don’t develop these menu plans with weight loss in mind, I am not a nutritionist or dietician, I simply enjoy and find menu planning for my family very beneficial and I like to share these plans to those who are interested.
Anyway, why do you care what I am doing with my life… Well I guess because you will see a bit of a change in my meal plans. I was an avid bread, pasta and rice consumer and know that I was eating waaay too many carbs. So some of the recipe’s included in the menu plans will start to change. As we move forward I can explain a bit about what I am trying to do with LCHF and I hope that you are interested in coming along for the ride with me. For me LCHF isn’t a diet, it is a lifestyle and I am trying to find yummy recipe’s that myself and my whole family will enjoy without going overboard. My family are still eating some bread, pasta and rice and I often just substitute say their pasta for some spiralised Zucchini. Where I can I will try make note of that for you 🙂
