You’ve consulted all the literature and all the recommended reading in order to prepare yourself for the “journey to good health”. You’ve even read the section about the Carb Flu.
But what will you be cooking and eating from now on? Yes, yes, you’ve seen the list and quite frankly you’ve pulled a face at one or more items on the “Green list” and gasped at the contents of the orange/red list as well.
In my job and life there are stable and consistent days, and then it’s like someone flipped a switch and the next few days (or even weeks) are manic and hectic. Part of my commitment to the process is doing the “research” (because I like knowing how things work intrinsically and what rewards I will have when those workings are adhered to), setting a goal (in this case it was “date specific” not really “weight loss specific”) and then planning to keep myself on track.

Now I might have internal motivators as well to fuel the drive, but being prepared with recipes, staples and some nifty food inspirations (from Pinterest) also helps.
Since I’ve been down this road before, I know what I like and what worked for me. I’ve put together the first two weeks’ daily menu (or the eating plan).
This is only a PLAN; life happens and these menus are meant to be flexible. Reality could see you at a business lunch or family dinner where you will have to forgo your preparation and ingredients for that meal.
However, here’s what we will be eating for the next two weeks.
As we experiment with the dishes and cook ourselves healthy, we will share the Banting/Keto recipes with you.
Keep an eye out for the dishes in red, those will be posted online together with tips and weekly shopping lists to ensure you are ready for the week ahead.
