Great resource website – healthy eater planner

Monday – May 17th

I’ve just found this great PDF on the Bord Bia website and thought I’d share it – its a great start for a healthy eating plan:

My only tips with regard the healthy eating recipes would be:

Where they fry things in oil, for example the lamb burgers, I would suggest putting in the oven at 180 for 20 – 30 mins or until cooked. Cooking in oil has been linked to increased rates of heart disease.

They also tend to start many of their dishes with a saute of onions and oil or a saute of vegetables in oil. Here you can substitute with a healthy saute  – place the onions or veggies in the pan with a little water – again, it takes out the need for heating the oil.

For healthy living, chose extra virgin olive oil and keep it cool for your salads!
