Can we please keep healthy eating January going all year long? Seriously, if we can eat food that is good for our bodies AND tastes this good, we should be doing it every day.
I've made us some Thai Chicken Curry Meatballs and they are INSANELY DELICIOUS. Yes, I know I just yelled at you. I hope you can forgive me. It's just that they are so freaking good.
The meatballs are made by pureeing onions, garlic, and ginger to a paste then mixing it into ground chicken with some curry paste, fish sauce, and soy sauce. The result are meatballs that are literally bursting with flavor.
I serve these chicken curry meatballs over healthy carrot noodles with some equally healthy coconut and almond butter satay sauce.
I usually say I'm not one for New Year's resolutions. ← That's the truth! Well, it's the truth that I say that. The real truth is that every year come Boxing Day, I start thinking about goals I want to accomplish in the next year.
The first one is usually about health. Imaginative, I know. The thing is, I just can't help it. After overeating my way through December, my body starts craving things like smoothies and carrot noodles and moderation.
But even if I'm craving healthy food, there's one thing that I always have trouble controlling. EATING. A food blogger who loves to eat. Go figure.
I don't know if it stems from being told to eat everything on my plate as a child, or just that food tastes so good, but I always eat more than I should. Are you the same?
I've tried for years to stop eating when I feel full. But it so hard! Even if I occasionally succeed, all it takes is a plate full of delicious and I totally forget. #BeenThereDoneThat
I found out about Lovidia a little while ago. When I first heard about it (before I learned about it) I was curious, but mostly just rolled my eyes. What made me take a better look is when I read on their website that Lovidia is NOT a “magic pill.” I liked that.
Lovidia uses a breakthrough science called Gut Sensory Modulation (GSM). It helps your body release hormones that let you know you’re full – it's your body’s own natural hunger control switch which gives you the power to avoid overeating. It does this with an all-natural, non-stimulating formula. Because Lovidia is not a drug, it doesn't come with the long list of unpleasant (and possibly dangerous) side effects.
According to their website, the ingredients in Lovidia have been clinically tested in multiple double-blind, placebo-controlled studies and have been shown to be both safe and effective.
“These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.”
“Results vary based on program adherence. In the LOVIDIA Way study average weight loss was 13.6 pounds and waist circumference reduction was 2.7 inches.”
By taking one Lovidia tablet with breakfast and another with lunch, that whole overeating thing can become a thing of the past.
Basically, you can sit down to a crazy delicious dinner (like these Thai Curry Chicken Meatballs) and not worry about totally pigging out.
Right now, I'm traveling around Peru with my family. As soon as I'm back, I'm going to try out that box of Lovidia you see up there. I'm really excited about it!

For paleo diets, use coco aminos instead of soy sauce.
For Whole30, use coco aminos and compliant fish sauce and Thai curry paste.
