موسم الشتا من المواسم اللي بتشجع على القعدة في البيت والأكل الكتير وده في حد ذاته يعتبر سبب من اسباب زيادة الوزن لو مكناش حذرين كفاية. فكرة الأكل الكتير قد تعتبر غير محبوبة للبعض ولكن يوم بعد يوم، الدراسات بتثبت ان الاكل الكتير مش بيؤدي للسمنة بالضرورة لو تم تناول الوجبات الصحية بما يناسب حاجات جسمنا.

في التدوينة دي هنديكم خمس نصايح تستفيدوا بيها في الشتا وتساعدكم في خسارة الوزن الزائد بالإضافة الى الإستمتاع بفصل الشتا بدون تأنيب ضمير

Sattva-Steps---Breakfast-Platter

كتروا من الفاكهة و الخضار قبل الأكل

زيادة تناول الخضار والفاكهة بيساهم في الإحساس بالشبع نظراً لإحتوائهم على الألياف اللي بتساعد على الإحساس بالشبع فبالتالي تاكلوا اقل خلال الوجبة الرئيسية بالإضافة الى انهم بيساعدوا على تنظيم مستويات السكر في الدم واللي بيساعد على التقليل من الشعور بالجوع

وطالما اتكلمنا على الخضار

كتروا من السلطات كمان

السلطة من أهم المكونات اللي ممكن تساهم في التحكم في زيادة الوزن و فقدان الوزن كمان. لما تبتدوا الوجبة بطبق سلطة  شهي وغني بالخضار الفريش، المعدة بتتملي أسر نظراً لإحتواء الخضارعلى الألياف اللي برضو بتساعد على تخفيض مستوى الكوليسترول وبتحسن الهضم. ونضيف الى ذلك ان الدراسات اثبتت ان تناول السلطة يومياً بيقلل من فرص الإصابة بالسرطان كما ان بعض انواع الخضار المستخدمة بتوفر دهون صحية مفيدة للجسم زي الأوفوكادو وزيت الزيتون المستخدم في تزيين السلطة

Saladero---Make-your-own-salad

Saladero---Make-your-own-salad---Greek

 كتروا من البروتين

البروتين هو مكون أساسي من المكونات اللي بيدخل في تكوين الخلايا في الجسم ومهم جداً يبقى متوفر بكمية تناسب جسم كل واحد فينا. البيوتين بيدخل أيضاً في تكوين الإنزيمات والهرمونات وبيساهم في تكوين العظام، العضل، الجلد والدم كمان. جسم الإنسان بيحتاج البروتين بإستمرار وطرق توفير البروتين للجسم متنوعة ومنها: الأسماك، الفراخ، اللحوم، البقوليات، المكسرات والحبوب الكاملة

InSeason-BYO-Salad

InSeason-BYO-Salad1 InSeason-Wraps

متخلوش في نفسكوا حاجة

لو كنت من عشاق الحلو، مش بالضرورة ترحم نفسك من اصنافك المفضلة. تناول قطع صغيرة او استبدل اصناف الحلو بالفاكهة او الزبادي المثلج بكل نكهاته او البارفيه الصحي

Yoguland-Plain

In-Season-Parfait

In-Season-Parfait-1

فقدان الوزن مش لازم يبقى بالحرمان من الأكل او قلته. الاستعانة بأغذية مفيدة وفي نفس الوقت بتشبع ممكن توصلك لفقدان وزن اكتر في فترة زمنية معينة بس تضمن برضو ان الجسم بيستمد حاجته من المكونات الغذائية بطريقة صحية تضمنلك فقدان وزن بطريقة سليمة ونفسية مرتاحة

انهي نوع من الأكيلة انت؟ – الجزء الأول

كلنا بنحب الأكل بدرجات متفاوتة والبعض منا بيفضلوا أكلات معينة بينما في ناس منا معندهمش مشاكل ياكلوا أي حاجة طالما في الآخر هيشبعوا. أنهي نوع من الأكيلة انت؟

الأكيل الطفس

طفس

بتحب الأكل زي عنيك ودايس في أي عزومة. عادةً مبتعتقش طبقك او طبق غيرك ودايماً بتحب اللمة. الأكل عندك أسلوب حياة ومحدش يقدر يزايد على كدة. في الأغلب بتبقى موقع حقد وغيرة اللي حواليك علشان في الآخر بتفضل رفيع وبتهضم الأكل بسرعة. مبروك: انت أكيل طفس

الأكيل المرعب

مرعب

ده نوع متقدم من الأكيل الطفس وده بيتصف بنفس المواصفات بس المشكلة بقا إنك متعرفش حبايبك في الأكل. بتاكل بكميات مهولة وبطريقة مرعبة لبعض أصحاب القلوب المرهفة وغالباً بيبقى بسبب دايت الجيم او طفاسة يعني عادي. بالهنا والشفا واوعى تجوع وتاكل دراع حد

الأكيل المسالم

مسالممبتحبش القلقاس؟ مش مشكلة. هتاكله. الأكل نعمة وغيرك مش لاقي ياكل. لقيت حاجة مش ولابد في السلطة؟ وماله؟ اهو بروتين برضو. الأكيل المسالم ميعترضش على الأكل حتى لو مش عاجبه.. مش حباً فيه، لأ. ده بس علشان هوا غلبان ومش ناوي يعمل قلق.. اهي كلها أكلة والسلام.. عادةً بياخد الأكل تيك أواي وبيبتسم للجرسون ويقوله “والله الأكل جميل انا بس اللي بشبع بسرعة” لما الجرسون يسأله لو الأكل معجبهوش ولما يروَح يأكله للقطط او يرميه في التلاجة لحد ما يبوظ علشان مبيحبش يرمي الأكل في الزبالة لحسن يجري وراه يوم القيامة. غلبان اوي

الأكيل المحسوك

محسوك

الأكيل المحسوك ده موجود في كل واحد فينا بنسبة بسيطة. بس لو بتلاقي نفسك بتبحلق في الكوباية او الشوكة والمعلقة كل مرة بتروح فيها مطعم وتعمل مشكلة كبيرة لو لقيت بصمة او خربوشة عليهم، اعرف انك أكيل محسوك. الأكل لو جيه فيه غلطة ممكن تطلب تكلم مدير المطعم وتطالب بإعتذار رسمي من الأمم المتحدة على الغلطة الشنيعة والغير مقصودة. مفيش مرة رحت فيها مطعم وما اشتكيتش وبتزعل لما صحابك يقولولك “يا عم فكك بقا خلينا ناكل وننبسط!”. عادةً بتعرف تستخدم عصاية السوشي ومهم جداً انك تاكل بيها لأنك كأكيل محسوك مقتنع ان السوشي مينفعش يتاكل غير بيها. مبتحبش الأكل المليان بهارات – مفيهوش بهارات – الجبنة – اللبن – البصل – الثوم – الخضار عامة – الخ

الأكيل اللي ما بياكلش

ما-بياكلش

نوع الأكيلة ده دايماً مظلوم. مابتاكلش وعارف نفسك مبتزودش في الأكل بس المشكلة ان الأكل مستقصدك واي حاجة بتاكلها لو كانت بسيطة بتبان عليك. ممكن تبقى ضخم او عضمك عريض والكل واخد عنك فكرة غلط انك أكيل طفس بس في الحقيقة انت غلبان ومبتاكلش كتير اصلاً. معلش.. احنا فاهمينك. متزعلش.. انت حد جميل

لو حابب تتعرف على شخصيتك، ادخل على موقعنا هنا واطلب وجبتك وقولنا انت انهي نوع من الأكيلة. انتظروا المزيد من أنواع الأكيلة في بوست جديد

10 guilt-free meals that will satisfy your appetite

Whether you’re counting calories or looking for healthier alternatives, there are many ways to avoid ordering food that not only adds extra pounds to the scale, but also has little nutritional benefits. You can stick to eating raw, fresh food and that’s alright. But knowing that the body sometimes has demands, it won’t harm to order food online and enjoy a day out of the kitchen. Taking proper decisions while ordering online can make a huge difference to your mental state especially if you took a decision to eat healthier. The pressure can sometimes halt your progress if you feel like you’re forced to avoid what is available for the public.

When we’re discussing calories, it’s good to know that among all the food of the world, there are healthier alternatives. You can get your calorie intake from different sources but the portions differ:

This is what 200 calories look like. Choose wisely. :)

Each of those dishes contains 200 calories.

Keep this image in mind as a rule of thumb whenever you’re preparing your meals:

Healthy portions mean a healthy life

Healthy portions mean a healthy life

An example

Another example

And if you’re not really sure of your measurements, let your hands be your guide!

healthy measures

Your food servings should not exceed those

Measuring made easy!

Measuring made easy!

Another important step that helps is to start your day with a healthy and rich breakfast. Whether you go for a sandwich and some juice, breakfast cereals, oatmeal and fruits, eggs and a slice of toast; a breakfast should be your first meal everyday to ensure that your body gets its required boost to function properly.

A great day to start the day

A great way to start the day

We recommend the below:

For a sweet and healthy start, try inSeason‘s yummy Parfaits:

Greek yogurt parfait from inSeason

Or some traditional Falafel with a healthy twist From Just Falafel:

Baked Falafel served in brown Tortilla bread  from Just Falafel

As for lunch, you can enjoy a salad or some grills rather than opt for food that is high in calories and low in nutritional values. A platter of grills from Abou Shakra, perhaps?

Mix Grill from Abou Shakra

Mix Grill from Abou Shakra

Or some grilled chicken and salad from Spectra?

There’s also seafood for an extra luxurious lunch. Try some from Sequoia:

A mouthwatering platter of seafood from Sequoia

Or this nutritious Salmon Steak dish from Sattva Steps:

Grilled to perfection and packed with Omega-3 fatty acids 😉

If you’re craving burgers, you can enjoy a healthy alternative like this delicious and light Lettuce Wrap from Buffalo Burger

Dinner time is when you have to be a bit careful. It is usually recommended that you keep it light and have your dinner a few hours before bed time and by 7PM max.

Not only does that help you maintain a healthy weight (or lose some if you intend to), but it also helps you burn your food better and get a good night sleep as the rise in blood sugar and insulin levels due to the consumption of food may disturb your sleep.

We would recommend a fresh salad and those come in different, tummy-filling varieties:

Take this light and exotic Lemon Quinoa salad from Casper and Gambini’s for example:

Lemon Quinoa

A super fine dinner for a healthier lifestyle

Quinoa is considered a worldwide favorite for health enthusiasts as it is rich with protein, fiber and minerals yet does not contain any gluten.

If you prefer some meat added, you can enjoy a Donar Kebab Salad from Adam’s:

10632599_838825299481162_254000768339996608_n

Or a Chicken Teriyaki Salad from Subway:

When it comes to salad, there are many ways to enjoy a delicious and filling salad without feeling hungry or adding extra unwanted calories or fats to your daily diet. To make it short, here’s how to build the perfect salad easily:

perfect salad

While committing to a healthy lifestyle, don’t deny yourself desserts and reward yourself every once in a while. If you feel like enjoying a delicious piece of cake, you can indulge and not feel guilty.. as long as you consider it a reward 🙂 Rigoletto is the place when we’re talking sweet rewards:

Tutti Frutti

Celebrate your reward with friends and family.. enjoy the Tutti Frutti ice cream cake from Rigoletto 🙂

Leading a healthy lifestyle is a lifetime commitment. It might not be an easy commitment  to some of us but it surely pays off eventually. Invest some time into planning your meals and substitute unhealthy, processed food with fresh, healthy food and you will notice the results in no time.

Delicious childhood memories

Remember the good times you spent that one summer with friends and relatives? Those small feasts you had as kids whenever you felt exhausted from your skateboards, roller skates, football, basketball or even hide and seek sessions? How about that lonely cookie you managed to save for school and ended up sharing with your friends? 🙂

In today’s post, we’re going to take you on a walk down memory lane with some of our partners:

Fast food love

Whether it’s McDonald’s, Hardee’s, or KFC, we’ve all been crazy for the kid’s meal.

Happy Meal

KFC

Hardee's

And we all know why:

Happy Meal toys

And sometimes, the highlight of our day would simply be:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Fries

Cookie

And you end up having a great memory of you and your childhood buddies having your first Happy Meal:

Koshary

koshary

Whether you skipped school with friends and gathered at the nearest Koshary store or your parents walked into home after a long day at work with a bag of Koshary containers, Koshary is one of those meals that reminded you of the good old days. No matter what the memory associated with Koshry is, it would surely be there for you whenever you longed for a cheap yet very delicious meal.

 Doughnuts

Donuts

Have you ever received a doughnut reward whenever you did great at school? Or perhaps had a surprise doughnut store visit with your parents? Regardless of how you finally got your hands on the mouthwatering lord of the rings, we’re sure it was a memory never to forget. Every time.

Does this remind you of something?

kid-eating-a-doughnut

Bakery smells

Remember passing by the local bakery and standing there with your stomach urging you to walk into that place to grab a freshly baked croissant or a yummy pate?

bakery

We’ve all been there. The smell always reminds us of good times even as we grew into adults. Something about the bakery smells that reminds us of home and puts us into a state of trance.

TBS

Cake!

We all love cake. Admit it. Birthday cake, Gateaux, pound cake, you name it. We’ve had birthday parties, we’ve been to our neighbor’s birthday party, our friend’s birthday party and they’ve all had one thing in common: cake!

A whole lot of memories 🙂

Eclair

Glacec

Oriental Sweets

Ramadan will always be full of memories of family visits and happy Iftar moments and a typical Ramadan Iftar would not be complete without the delicious Konafa or Basbousa, and Eid wouldn’t be worth it without the Ka’ak!

Sweet Saray

basbousa

Pizza

Homemade pizza, ready made pizza, any pizza. It’s a number one childhood memory. If you’ve gathered with your parents and siblings around a nice box of freshly delivered pizza, you’ll totally relate. If Mom makes pizza and you know it has its own rating above all the other pizzas of the world, you’ll totally relate. Nothing beats homemade pizza and the memories of each time your mother brought out a tray of pizza from the oven. You impatiently picked on the hot dog or meat slices on the top and whatever dough hung out of that tray just to get the taste of the long awaited pizza Mom just baked.

Spaghetti, Fettuccine, Lasagne, Cannelloni, Macaroni, Penne, noodles: they’re all the same to you as a kid. You just loved it. Whether with red sauce and meatballs, Bechamel sauce and minced meat, white sauce, chicken and mushroom, pasta remains one of those childhood dishes everyone loves.

You can’t deny that food has always been our childhood companion, whether with friends or family and many dishes add richness to our memories of those golden days. It almost seems as if food with all its variations allow such memories to come to life the minute we consume them and they automatically send us years back.
