This food pyramid, like the previous one, has pasta, bread and other carbohydrates at the base.
This is definitely not for me. I could never have a diet that predominates in these foods. Fruit and vegetables will need to be at the base of my pyramid, but I’m not sure yet what the middle layers will be.
One thing for sure though. Chocolate and sweets are bound to feature on the top layer of anyone’s food pyramid. The secret is to restrict these but at the same time not be aware that they are being rationed. At the moment my plan is to give myself a daily treat and look forward to this. Because only small quantities are eaten they will become more and more of a treat.
I’m going to choose two of my home made favourites that will always be in my box of treats. By making them myself in my own kitchen, it will continually reinforce to me how much fattening stuff they contain – a reminder to restrict them.
The first treat will be “Granny MacAdam’s tablet.”
The second will be “Mum’s orange and biscuit no-bake cake.”
Oh, how I love these two fattening treats!
Recipes to follow soon.
I won’t start on this lifelong healthy eating diet until The Treat Tin is full.
