31 Days of Wellbeing: Day 12

Day 12 of 31 Days of Wellbeing

This could be an easy one or a challenging one depending on your normal routine…

Cooking and baking is both physical and mental therapy. - Mary Berry

As much as we don’t like to admit or like it, we know that the way we eat affects our wellbeing. If we eat a danish pastry for breakfast, crisps as a snack, pizza for lunch and takeaway for dinner, we will probably feel lethargic, over-stuffed and guilty. However, if we choose overnight oats for breakfast, fruit as a snack, homemade wraps for lunch and a homemade curry for dinner, we will probably feel more energised, less bloated and pleased with ourselves. Also, if you have eaten that healthily all day, you can totally have an after-dinner treat as a reward in my opinion!

So today…I want you to cook a meal. Not necessarily from scratch – curry pastes and ready-made pastry is fine according to Jamie Oliver so let’s not make our lives too difficult! However, please avoid anything too processed e.g. frozen potato wedges, fish fingers, ready meals etc. I appreciate for whatever reason you may not be able to do this today, and may need to reach for a quick fix. If that’s the case, make a pledge to cook a meal tomorrow…or at least once this week! It will make you feel good 🙂
