Kale Chips

Having healthy & active style is pretty easy. I never tell my self to go on diet, but instead I said I want to be more healthy, many people try to do diet and what happen is that they gain more weight than before they even started their diet! For me its true.

I recently watch the program called Fat, Sick and nearly Died and I am agree with them 100% :)
I remember what was my everyday breakfast  7 years ago (when I just arrived here) and I compared to now, it is so much different and I am not going to come back to my old breakfast food :)

I was always felt tortured when my hubby told me to eat healthy cereal, and why did he push me to eat cereal? because I was complaining all the time that I had constipation. Now I thank him for this ha ha...
It is pretty much our brain taking role on any habit we having isn't it? if we want to break ANY habit we can't just force our self straight away, but instead we can do it slowly and consistent. Then after we have a new healthy habit we can (again) slowly start improve our fitness level.

Don't forget to discuss with your doctor if you have any health issue. Walking everyday is very good start with minimum 30 minutes each day. Here is some copy form Australian Government Department of health and aging website.

Physical activity guidelines for adults

There are four steps for better health for Australian adults.

Together, steps 1-3 recommend the minimum amount of physical activity you need to do to enhance your health. They are not intended for high-level fitness, sports training or weight loss. To achieve best results, try to carry out all three steps and combine an active lifestyle with healthy eating.

Step 4 is for those who are able, and wish, to achieve greater health and fitness benefits.

Step 1 – Think of movement as an opportunity, not an inconvenience
Where any form of movement of the body is seen as an opportunity for improving health, not as a time-wasting inconvenience.

Step 2- Be active every day in as many ways as you can
Make a habit of walking or cycling instead of using the car, or do things yourself instead of using labour-saving machines.

Step 3 – Put together at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity on most, preferably all, days.
You can accumulate your 30 minutes (or more) throughout the day by combining a few shorter sessions of activity of around 10 to 15 minutes each.

Step 4 – If you can, also enjoy some regular, vigorous activity for extra health and fitness
This step does not replace Steps 1-3. Rather it adds an extra level for those who are able, and wish, to achieve greater health and fitness benefits.

 I always try to avoid junk food or process food. Healthy meal is not necessary complicated to make, for example simple salad sprinkle with any nuts for protein or even this kale chips for snack.  Ok enough Blah blah...

All you need to make this healthy snack is a bunch of organic kale(I grow some in my veg patch), olive oil and some sea salt, remove middle stem from kale washed well and pat dry with paper towel, toss with some olive oil and sea salt then baked in the pre-heated 160° C oven for 20-30 minutes or until kale is dry and crisp. Yummy!!
