I love to cook and I love to eat. And by the way, I AM A GOOD COOK! LOL, I made Thanksgiving dinner for my family and baked turkey for the first time which turned out GREAT! And also made a variety of different dishes again on Christmas 🙂 what can I say, my family just can’t get enough of my cooking. Also, being a model and having to maintain my shape, I have learned that home-cooked meals are the best and the healthiest. So when I am home, I make delicious and healthy meals.

Some tricks to making delicious & healthy meals

So here we go… I know it so hard for some people to drink plenty of water and eat fruits and vegetables. But trust me, it is possible! There are so many things that you can do with fruits and vegetables….If just the thought of biting into an apple is hard for you then chop up the apple and fry it and then drizzle it with honey. If you think you are such a monkey by peeling a banana and biting into it then pour some oatmeal into a bowl, get fat-free yogurt (Preferably ACTIVIA 🙂 pour it on top of the oatmeal, cut up the bananas and place them on top of the yogurt and then drizzle honey around your mix and there you have it…A TASTY HEALTHY Parfait. Like this….

Also, you can make vegetable soup. Just get a bunch of different vegetables that you love, chop them up fry them with vegetable, corn, or olive oil…whichever one you prefer. Add about two spoons of tomato paste and or Hunts tomato sauce to the mix. Sprinkle some paprika, curry powder, and adobo and if you like medium spicy food then I recommend a few drops of Texas Pete hot sauce. My favorite is mushroom and spinach soup, I make it with green, yellow & red peppers, onions, tomatoes, and all the powders that I mentioned. It is AMAZING! Take a look

Don’t tell me you wake up in the morning and drink a beer…BAD BAD BAD!!! Green tea or really any kind of tea is one of the best things that you can drink in the morning. If you don’t like the taste of tea, Adding lemon and honey makes it taste a lot better. Also if you don’t like lemon then, Tea Masala and skim milk on black tea does the trick. Orange juice in the morning is also good for you. It has Vitamin C and we all know that it helps boost the immune system. Also, it is important to drink plenty of water a day. Well drinking too much water is also dangerous, so don’t overdo it. No more than 7 cups a day. My trick to drinking water is to pour just a bit of juice or squeeze lemon into it, so that it has some flavor.

When you go out what do you eat?

Well I love SUSHI! A few of my friends think that sushi is the nastiest thing ever, but I love it and that’s usually what I eat when I go out. Also Chipotle and Boston Market have a variety of healthy choices. Anyway, you can go for something else. However, stay away from the large fries, triple cheese burgers and extra large Soda’s. And instead, try ordering a grilled chicken sandwich on wheat bread or a fish fillet. And when ordering a drink, I recommend Juice or a glass of red wine 🙂 Now, it’s ok to eat pizza and or snack while watching a movie/game or during a celebration but do so in moderation.

Do you exercise?

Now it’s not always about what you put into your body but what your daily activities consist of. Do you go to the gym? If not, do you take walks around your neighborhood? Do you play sports? Do you have a job where you are constantly lifting and working your muscles day in and day out? Now if you never do anything physical then you have to make the time to exercise. My trick is, jumping rope in the morning, at least three times a week or taking a walk around my neighborhood. You will be surprised by the results you get, if you make this a habit. Most importantly, not only will you look good on the outside but you will feel good on the inside.

I hope this helped! Wishing you all a Happy New Year!!!
