Any Healthy options for food?

Posted in Hints and tips 12 Apr 2013

Hey :)

I am on day 4 of my champix tablets and would really like some ideas on healthy snack ideas or any thing that will help me on my journey. I have been smoking for 7 years and I think it is just about time to quit, I've heard that green tea helps but I would really appreciate some help. Thank you. :)

    Congrats and keep going you can do it and you are doing it. Deep breathing, yoga, walking. Positive self talk, nuturing yourself, reading, listening to music, bake some muffins,make a fruit salad to have after dinner as a treat. Hug a baby, smell your favourite perfume. Get dressed up, drink rose tea. Be happy, like yourself, nurture others,love and be loved all the best

    Oh a real good question here Mekala but I would suggest a lot of fruit and vegies that are quick to snack on. Celery with peanut butter or celery with cream cheese are always nice and a healthy option. Some nuts but don;t go overboard here as they are fattening. Well everything is fattening if we don't watch the amount we consume. The fruit and nut mix I use during the day too but I have a handful of when I feel like a snack. Like prettygirl says too, go for a walk or nurture yourself instead of wanting something to eat.

    Good luck

    nuts are very good,if you like almonds they are probably the best as they have the good fats in them like avocardo or oily fish. very good for building lean muscle as well.As goonellabah says celery,fruit and nut mixes are very good and salads with as little dressing on them as you can manage.I find spending more time in the gym helps me the most,but a good walk would be just as good. good luck and best wishes.
