Most Naija staple foods are laden with carbs but fibre rich, and very low in fat. Fibre is an essential nutrient for the body. Not only vital for weight loss/maintenance but fibre is also needed for disease prevention in our bodies. So do we avoid these fibre rich foods because they have carbs too? No! Minimal consumption is Key! 

Oat meal

Enough protein in the morning can help start your day with energy and focus, plus it keeps you feeling fuller longer. Get your protein from high-quality sources like milk and dairy products, eggs, fish and lean cuts of meat.  

Creamy Breakfast Ideas

#1. Pancakes

Tomato stew is one of the most popular Nigerian food recipes, it is easy to make but requires patience. The ingredients needed could be found in almost every part of the world and almost anybody can cook up this stew in less than fifty minutes. Your personal preference determines if you would be having beef, fish, chicken or turkey tomato stew.
 

 Home Maker

Aside the fact that many are being thrown out of their jobs due to the ongoing economic strain in the country, quite a number of women are faced daily with the decision to stay at home to look after their kids. Such situations can be quite traumatic as it means a cut-down of income amongst many other issues. But the truth is – losing a job or taking a break off your regular 9-5 isn’t the end of the world. It simply means it’s time to become your own boss by exploring your business ideas while also enjoying quality time with your family.

Okro soup

Hello!

It’s all about popular yummy okro soup today. Protein-rich, okro is loaded with lots of other nutritional benefits. The soup itself is a favourite in most Nigerian homes. This probably is because it’s not just tasty but also easy to cook, and pocket friendly (whatever your choice of ingredients are, it turns out well).

If you are a keen weight watcher like me who wants to do away with palmoil as much as possible, here’s a delightful twist to enjoying your okro soup without fear of the calories in palm oil.
