Le fameux Tahini ! C’est une crème de sésame, préparation orientale faite à partir de graines de sésame broyées, avec un peu d'eau, jusqu'à obtenir une pâte lisse. Ayant un goût de noisette et c'est un condiment très employé dans la cuisine orientale
Le Tahni est riche en acides gras insaturés : 40% d’acide oléique (mono insaturé), et 40% d’acide linoléique ou oméga 6 (poly insaturé). Les acides gras oméga 6, notamment, jouent un rôle dans l’équilibre du système nerveux et cardiovasculaire, les défenses immunitaires et combattent les réactions allergiques et inflammatoires. Notons qu’il est rare que notre alimentation soit carencée en acides gras oméga 6, qui sont beaucoup plus courants que les oméga 3.
Le Tahini est aussi une excellente source de vitamine B1, qui intervient dans la transmission de l’influx nerveux, la croissance et la production d’énergie à partir des glucides.

So I have to say, I have salads quite a lot lol. The problem is when someone hears the word salad. They think of a few leafy greens and air 😂.
That my friends is not a salad. A salad doesn’t mean anymore than a bed of greens, what you choose to put in that salad, will differ per person 😉.
You can easily mix a protein source into your salad depending on your preference, along with nuts, seeds, fruit and other assorted veggies.
This should fill you up! You shouldn’t be leaving the table feeling like you had nothing... What do you choose to put in your salad!? Use emojis below!

Making changes to your diet/lifestyle is hard at the best of times but especially so when the goal is weight loss. Providing your body with less energy than it requires is in NO WAY an intuitive thing to do. It requires significant conscious effort to ignore your brain’s signals telling you to eat more. AKA willpower. ⠀
⠀ Problem: Often when people take on new “weight loss” diets they end up trying to change a million things at once. The diet goes from meal deals & Deliveroo to chia seeds, coconut milk & #saladlife . These changes require a lot of willpower on top what’s already required to consistently eat less! ⠀
⠀ Remember that the driver of weight loss is creating a negative energy balance, not converting to the world’s most nutrient dense diet ⠀
⠀ Sure, from an idealistic stand point for broad health, the more nutrient quality the better (probably). This might mean including more nuts & seeds, oily fish, legumes, veg, fruits, whole grains & proteins. Cool. ⠀
⠀ But, none of these variables themselves will bring about your weight loss goal if you’re not creating a deficit. In fact you may even find if you’ve spent Monday-Friday obsessing over whether your water has enough lemon in it, or whether you’ve had 4 or 5 of your 5 a day, you may just about be running out of willpower by Saturday night. This is when the Dominoes & wine sneaks in & your calorie deficit takes a massive hit for the week. ⠀
⠀ Chanel the will power where it matters, which is reducing excess calorie intake from the biggest windows of opportunities in your diet.
Yes a colourful salad may have the benefit of more nutrient quality & probably fill you up a little longer than a sandwich, yet the calories & protein are similar in both. This is not a significant window of opportunity for change compared to: restaurants/alcohol, afternoon/evening snacking, excess oils/portions & fancy coffees. ⠀
⠀ Coaches - find these big windows of opportunity for your client & target them aggressively! I don’t want my clients wasting their willpower on things they don’t need to. Over time, we can move closer towards that “perfect diet” if we like, but right now it’s a distraction.

I love my cookies, but I love salads too. It’s not “moderation” or “balance,” or “eating clean” and then “treat yourself.” It’s just living 🙌🏻 It’s also #veggiesandchocolate ! Hope you had a great weekend - happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there (and especially mine)!! 💛
