Why you should do a weekly Menu?

Imagem
In my opinion and being a mum of 3, i understood that i really needed to Plan a weekly Menu every sunday morning (while the boys are having swimming at 7 am). 



First thing to do is to see what i didn't use the week before, take a look of your fridge, freezer and pantry. Second, after i do my menu i can do a grocery list with the things i need to buy at the supermarket. That way i will be more efficient and don't spend money in things that i don't need. (But I always ended up buying a few extra things 🤦🏻‍♀️)
I have my own Paleo menu (that i share yesterday, you can see the link here: http://cakescookiesdreams.blogspot.com/2018/11/paleo-lifestyle.html) and i do another one for the all family with the school lunch and snacks because i don’t thing they kids need to cut in all the carbs and sometimes they can have a treat. Every sunday I bake bread (for almost all week), cookies, a cake or sometimes cinnamon rolls (their favourites) or madeleines or brazilian cheese bread for t…

Paleo lifestyle

After my first article about my life change (you can read it here: http://cakescookiesdreams.blogspot.com/2018/06/the-sleeping-beauty.html ), I received a few emails/messages to share more details about my Paleo diet. I already did a post about that in Portuguese but for my new (no portuguese) followers I decided to share what and how it works my new healthy lifestyle, my weekly menus and my routine! But before you start you need to understand that there is no magic, if you want to lose weight, feel better, more energy, you really need to give up of many things, not forever but for a while! I will never have my 18 years old body back but im sure i can be more healthy, energetic and confident that i used to be, even after 3 kids! 


Never forget that for weight lost 80% of the results it’s about what you eat and just 20% it’s exercise! Because most of the people start doing exercise and instantly they start eating more. That is the first mistake because instead of loosing weight you will …

Detox after holidays - Day 8 to 14

The last week was very difficult to be focus on my diet because I had a few events and dinners with friends and it’s really hard to say no to a glass of wine or some yummy food or desserts. But i think I’m doing great and even I didn’t loose weight this week, I didn’t put any. So it’s a good balance!

I did some exercise but not every day and that makes a lot of difference to me because with my slow metabolism, I really need to do a lot of cardio to burn some extra calories.
But the holidays are almost finish and when I will be back to my routine I know I will loose the other 1,5 kilo.
I hope my meals can help and inspire you for the weight lost! One of my favourite places in Portugal for Snacks it’s the Go Natural, they have a lot of healthy option, no gluten and a lot of detox juices! I wish I could have it in Singapore because it helps a lot!
Day 8 - since I didn’t go to the gym I had a huge breakfast/brunch ( I’m so spoiled from my mum), with scramble eggs, white cheese, banana, pe…
