My General Diet

Poultry Diet

I was brought up eating a poultry diet, which means I ate chicken, turkey, duck, fish and seafood as well as vegetarian options but NO RED MEAT.

Healthier food alternatives have always interested me and I have always loved eating lemons, chilli peppers, spicy foods, vegetables and salad.

I have always preferred fish over chicken as chicken personally wasn’t something I enjoyed to really eat. I found chicken to be quite dry and tasteless, but fish and seafood to be more interesting as well as a safer option.

When I moved out to Vienna I was often provided with chicken from my mother-in-law.

I started to get really bored and fed up of eating chicken and additionally felt that it was quite unnecessary and unfair for me to be eating the poor chickens which I didn’t even enjoy eating.

Pescatarian

That is when I decided to give up eating chicken after going through a stage of sharing a whole chicken some evenings with my husband (fiancé at the time). I dropped the chicken out of my diet and became a pescatarian.

I have now been eating a pescatarian diet for around 5 years and feel a lot better that I have do not eat any mammals.

I have a great interest in eating a vegetarian/vegan diet and I do try to eat as many meat free options as I can.

Milk

I no longer buy milk to drink or have in teas or coffees or with my breakfast, but instead I buy milk alternatives.

To me milk has a nasty aftertaste and there are so many milk alternatives out there now with plenty of brands to choose from, I much prefer drinking milk alternatives such as almond milk or oat milk.

I often buy milk alternatives such as:

  • Rude Health – Almond Milk
  • Oatly – Oat Milk
  • Innocent – Hazelnut Milk

Chocolate

My favourite type of evening dessert would be dark chocolate with around at least 85% cocoa. I do not like milk chocolate; I find it really sickly and sugary. However I definitely have a slight addiction to dark chocolate.

Refined Sugars

I tend not to buy foods with refined sugars, maltodextrin, dextrin, sucralose or E-numbers as they are not good for us to consume and can lead to all sorts of health issues in the long run.

Generally speaking I do really enjoy eating salads, fruit and vegetables and feeding my body with the vitamins and nutrients it needs.
