Help With Calorie Counting!
I got this mail and actually sent a reply before it clicked that readers may have some useful ideas to share:
Greetings Eya. Keep up the good work. Is it possible to count calories with our Nigerian dishes? Just wondering.
Here is my reply below:
Hi O..., this question you just asked has been bothering me too. I don't know how to count calories with our Nigerian foods. You know they are neither processed nor packaged. I try to help myself by eating smaller portions.
After clicking on reply, it dawned on me that someone on the blog may be able to help out. There are readers here who are so knowledgeable about these things and very health conscious too. I wish that you can help us out with some suggestions or what works for you.
I feel like you may have some ideas to share with us(The Nigerian Meals Calorie Counting illiterates).
Any suggestions will go a long way to help. Like I replied her, basically, what I do is eat smaller portions by making my foo foo small with a big bowl of soup. I try to eat larger portions of my vegetable soup and smaller portions of Eba, Semovita, Amala or Pounded yam.
Can you share ideas and suggestions with us? Please:-)
