If you're someone who usually forgoes a side salad for fries at a restaurant or prefers potato chips over kale chips, getting enough greens to fuel your body can be difficult. As much as you wish you probably could, you can't count ketchup or the marinara sauce on your pasta as one of your two-and-a-half serving of vegetables that you're supposed to eat per day.
I first realized my starvation for the tasty food when I was in school. My friends created a food sharing tradition so we can enjoy each other's meals. However, I never liked it because my lunch box used to carry the perfect combination of ingredients like moderately spicy and tasty at the same time. Whereas, other meals used to lack one or other things like spices, salt, no gravy, too much gravy, not fully cooked bread, or an overcooked till burned bread.

Hello my Vocal friends! I hope you are having a good day so far. Since my transition to independent living in the summer of 2018, I started learning about nutrition and exploring unique and wholesome junk food replacements. I made a promise to myself that I was going to start looking after my health and wellbeing, but it was not going to be something I would fix overnight or in two weeks. As I have explained in one of my previous recipe blogs, I will relapse after trying to deprive myself of sugar for a day of two. In order for me to be consistent with my diet, I can’t have the "it's bad or it's good" mindset, but rather eat things in moderation and allowing myself to have the odd binge. The SlimFast diet is the most effective diet for me compared to the Ketogenic, Paleo, Vegan or Atkins diets. I want to enjoy all of my favourites while managing my sugar and carbohydrate intake.
