Easy Core Diet

My lovely friend Lisa and I went for a long overdue catch up on Monday and it turns out that Lisa has the most amazing diet. I thought I'd get all of the juicy details to share with you guys so you could try it out too. Lisa's diet is very healthy and although there is only a little bit of variety, she eats out about 2-3 times a week and that includes alcoholic drinks. Lisa keeps herself in great shape and finds her diet easy to follow. There are no crazy ingredients to try and get your hands on and it won't cost you the Earth. When I asked her what she thought about the price, she said she buys her dry foods in bulk and she also buys frozen chicken in bulk, where possible. Although the fruit and vegetables can be expensive depending on the season, she saves money on buying the rest in bulk and adds a little variety with some fresh fish from time to time (you can obviously buy frozen fish to lower the costs even further).
(Anything in red can be bought in bulk).
Porridge oats with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and a spoonful of natural yoghurt.
Spinach, lettuce, rocket, celery, cucumber and tomatoes.
Chicken, prawns or smoked salmon (fish can be bought in bulk, if frozen).
Sesame seeds, pine nuts and pumpkin seeds.
Quinoa, green lentils and rice with sweet potato.
Chicken or fish.
If you're used to eating lots of junk food and sugary snacks, this may be a little difficult to start with; however, Lisa assures me she enjoys every aspect of her diet and she keeps herself motivated with meals and drinks out. Lisa follows this very healthy diet so she can allow herself to eat out 2-3 times a week (including alcohol) and this is her motivation to continue eating her controlled diet. It may seem a little unvaried, but if you eat out, then you're getting 3-4 different meals for dinner a week and you can play around with different meats, seeds, lentils and spices to add variety. For drinks, you could add green or herbal teas. You can find out the benefits of a variety of different teas here, 'Get the kettle on!'
What do you think to this diet? Is there anything you would change about it? Let us know how you get on if you decide to give it a go @HappyLittleLift.
Note to Lisa: I don't mean to mention alcohol so many times to make you out to be a boozy queen; I just want to let everyone know they can still enjoy a glass of wine without worrying about ruining the diet! (Love ya x)
