Making healthy meals

one creative or learning outlet that I have recently discovered that has helped me during this time is cooking. But, my main focus is healthy meals. It is very easy to get bad eating habits while you are staying home. I have been trying to avoid this though. I didn’t use to be a very big fan of avocados before but now I love them. You can also do a lot with them and also flavor them how you like. For example, for breakfast I put them on toast and I also add, tomatoes, onions, feta cheese and black pepper. You can also make guacamole with it which is very easy to make and only takes two minutes. You can also put guacamole into a lot of things such as salads and sandwiches. Another thing you can put them on is pasta and it will make it very creamy. They are very healthy with lots of nutrients.  I also try to stay away from carbs as much as I can. Therefore I replace white bread with whole wheat bread and also the same for tortillas and so on. I been getting these meal ideas from YouTube and pinterest. It made me realize how easy it is to eat healthy but however, it is hard to maintain it. It is very tempting to eat a burger or even candy.

    Hi Humaiya,
    I have the same feeling as you. One of the creative ways of learning that helped me during this difficult period is cooking. Although my main focus is different from yours, sometimes I try to make something healthy. Avocados don’t strike me as good either, so I haven’t tried them yet. So I will make other healthy food to develop a good eating habit. For example, at breakfast, have a cup of soy milk (soy milk can also be made at home), a hard-boiled egg, a bowl of oatmeal or a bowl of fruit with yogurt, corn, sweet potatoes, etc. You can also make whole wheat steamed buns at home. These healthy foods were taught to me by my parents. It’s healthy and convenient. I agree with you that “it is hard to maintain it.” Because carbohydrates are so tempting to us, whether it’s color, aroma or taste.
