Zone Balanced Lunch

Just had a lovely Zone balanced lunch at Avida in Featherston street. They do tasty tapas so I had Albondigas (beef & red wine meatballs with pureed chickpeas), seasonal greens (beans today) with olive oil and slivered almonds, all washed down with a delicious glass of Wooing Tree rose.  Highly recommended.  Being in the Zone is easy to manage when eating out if you are careful what you choose from the menu.  Avoid bread, pasta, rice, potatoes.  I would rather enjoy a nice glass of wine as part of my carbs along with fresh vegetables.

Best Wishes for the Festive Season

Holiday Season Tips For some people the festive season can provide a temporary challenge to their Zone nutrition lifestyle.

What’s For Lunch?

Contributed by Kevin Bateman In my last blog I moaned about McDonalds® discontinuing my favoured lunch choice option. I often have Middle Eastern kebab salads for lunch. The food court in the BNZ centre in Wellington has two places that make these, Kebab Queen and Jim Bom. I prefer Jim Bom, a small place that also does pasta and pizza so eyes right there. For about $8 you get a heap of fresh salad with sauces and a generous serving of lamb or chicken or a mix of both. These meals come naturally without bread or rice. There are also Middle

I’m Angry at McDonalds

Contributed by Kevin Bateman One of the perks of the Gold Card is free coffee at McDonalds® and an occasional coffee won’t do me any harm, especially a free one. With this incentive I checked out Mackers for a quick cheap lunch option and I discovered a reasonable choice that would be OK now and then to have with my now and then coffee. The McD Chicken Caesar Wrap. The cover on the seared (grilled) version showed per serving, protein 30.8g (4 blocks), fat 14.7g (5 blocks) and carbohydrate 29.3 (3.25 blocks). I discarded some of the wrap and enjoyed

Affordable meals

Last Sunday (12 May) on the Good Sorts spot on TV1 there was a lovely lady who cooks good nutritious meals for her family of 6 for under $20 a day.  They always get protein and lots of vegetables.  She looks out for specials in the supermarket for both meat and vegetables.  It was a really heartwarming piece and dispelled the myth that people can’t afford to eat properly. I’ve been using a slow cooker for stews, soups and a few other meals.  I’m pretty new to cooking (just goes to show that you are never to old to learn!)
