It was National Nutrition week from the 12th of October to the 18th of October 2020.
Because of the Coronavirus and people staying at home a lot more, nutrition and gut health is essential. During the last six months of lockdown, it is reported that many people put on weight (myself not included, but other bloggers like Thanh).
This week it is essential to focus on heart-healthy food. For lunch, on the 1st day, I had a salad with Moro Olive oil. I had a homemade steak with mushrooms and Birds eye chips. There is nothing wrong with Pub food, but if you are going to the pub all the time or having takeaway pub food, then it is an issue. Pub food all the time is not healthy for the gut. Pub food is full of bad fats, and it’s usually frozen. The food is generally cooked in cheap vegetable oil.
I have been trying to up my vegetable game, and that is good. I had a salad for a couple of days for lunch, and some multigrain rolls from Coles. It was awesome. I also had watermelon, pear, bananas, and a wide variety of fruits. Even though it is not cold, I enjoyed some oats. Oats are full of fiber and can help lower cholesterol. They are also good for the heart.
I enjoyed tacos from Dingo Ate my Taco. They do the best homemade tacos ever, and I tried the pork one with beans and loved it.
On Friday it was my flatmate’s birthday, so I enjoyed some homemade spaghetti marinara and a small piece of black forest cake from Fergusson plarre.
Overall it was a good week, and I could do this at home while in lockdown.
