Healthy Breakfast Slice

Lately, I've been on a bit of a health kick.

Having gorged myself over summer and christmas (don't we all?), after a while I realised that I couldn't go a day with out having just one sweet thing, albeit a slice of cake, a cookie, a bowl of ice-cream, whatever - and my bikini body wasn't thanking me.

So, to refocus, I read The Londoner's Anti Diet blog post and went back to basics - focusing on getting my 5+ servings of fruit and veggies a day. It was a question of The Swap. Whenever I had a craving for something sweet and deliciously evil, I would reach for the fruit bowl instead of the cake tin. I swapped carb-laden microwave meals with a vibrant and delicious salad. I found it was easiest to be healthy by packing my school lunches chock full of raw fresh vegetables, such as cucumber, carrots, tomatoes, capsicum,or anything else lying around my fridge, either left whole of chopped into sticks. As for the fruit, summer peaches, nectarines, plums and apricots always get me excited (I'm a bit of a fruit freak), as well as apples, oranges and pears.
