Salad Breakfast With Quail Eggs

Salad with quail eggs
Everytime I eat a salad breakfast, I feel so good afterwards. Once I'm done, I feel healthier. Not the placebo effect kind of health.  It just feels so right that I start feeling better with myself. Why? Because I know my body's not been injected with heavy calories and sugar. There is no sense of guilt, unlike when
I enjoy beverages and bread, and then immediately start trying to check for Christian Mother hands and to see if my waistline has expanded.

Salad breakfast with cucumber, lettuce and quail eggs

Some like me are in the process of losing some pounds. Now I'm wiser and won't repeat the mistake of 2010 when I lost 10kg between the 1st and 3rd week of  December, gained all back during and after Christmas.

 I know how to do my portion control without completely excluding Carbs and without starving. I don't feel full yes, but I snack on carrots, cucumber and garden eggs. In 2010, like I said before on a blog post. I tried to do the Atkins diet program, and it worked like magic. If only I knew that wasn't good for long term weight loss. I guess I didn't read well 
before embarking on it. 

Boiled quail eggs with green vegetable salad

Now, all I need is a lifestyle change. I have already convinced myself that what works for me is portion control plus exercises. I must not eat until my stomach muscles are stretched. I think every woman has a part of her body that really makes her happy when she looks at it. To me, that part is my stomach which remained very flat after four kids and it always felt very good when other mothers ask for the secret.  I tell people I never tied my stomach after any birth, I never used girdles but I made sure that after 1 month of delivery, my sit-ups begin. It works for me. 

Why am I saying all these. These past weeks, I have come to realize that some things given us by God can be lost if we do not try on our own part to do 
Maintenance. 

No heavy calorie vegetable salad with boiled quail eggs

I became lazy with my exercises, stopped my sit-ups completely and now, I see the body trying to increase, the tummy too is following suit. If I lose my flat tummy, what else do I have? *rme* I don't have an Aishwariya Rai or a Kim Kardashian Face, so, I better maintain the flat tummy to God dashed me. If after four pregnancies I didn't lose it, it shouldn't be now. 
I like that when I put my mind to something, I do it. I have started my control and the one portion carbohydrate a day but the problem with "the carbohydrate once a day" thing is that, it's very difficult here in Nigeria because almost  everything we have as food is carbohydrate. You are hungry, you enter the kitchen to get something, you see carbs smiling at you from all corners. You go out to eat, it's carbs beckoning to you. No carbs is difficult.

Sorry about my long talk. I just felt like sharing with you guys to get myself more challenged about  losing these extra 10 kg.

I'm planning on taking raw quail eggs tomorrow. I pray I succeed cos I hate raw eggs. If I do, will let you know to help inspire those of us still scared.
 I Hope no bird flu there o.

      Aunt Ahdaisy, wat is salmonella?

      Delete
    3. It's a disease that can be gotten from raw uncooked foods...can be transferred by animals....dnt know much about the details but I know it can be found in raw eggs.... Google it sha....

      Delete
    4. To add a bit to what Ahdaisy said, Salmonella is a bacteria that causes infections in the intestine.

      It's because of the microbes present in eggs that my mom insists I allow my fried eggs to simmer a bit on fire to destroy these pathogens present in the food.

      Even, when I prepare pap, she insists I allow it simmer to destroy any microbe in the pap.

      like Rubynnia said, salmonella is a bacteria not a disease, the disease is named after its particular causative salmonella. And salmonella infection can also be found in chicken,turkey, raw eggs. The type of infection caused by these agents is what we call salmonellosis or Salmonella enterocolitis.(they affect the lining of the small intestine)
      Typhoid fever is also caused by a type of salmonella.

    1. Not exactly. Actually eating cucumber is good for pregnancy BUT, there could be some side effects (dependent on the individuals predisposition) which could be uncomfortable during pregnancy.

      Read up http://www.ifood.tv/blog/is-it-safe-to-eat-cucumber-during-pregnancy

      And I'd advice you ask your doctor specifically if still in doubt.

      Hope this helps
