Since the new year has begun. So have resolutions to eat healthier and cleaner.
I know there are a slough of diets that can help you eat better.
Watching Dr. Oz doesn't help because by the end of watching his show for a week, you've realized that every type of food of bad and every type of food is good.
Welp...that's not helpful.
So whether you are doing a diet or not. Let me encourage you in this.
DON'T DIVE IN!! Well, set your intentions good, but don't be afraid to fail.
Sure you can have a piece of cake, does it have to be a big piece, no, but you can have some.
I'm realizing too how media has caused me to be raised looking at food as a negative.
It will make you gain weight if you eat too much. I want to be beautiful and that means being skinny.
I really need to work on THAT more than my diet.
We are now raising a girl and I want her to have positive thoughts on food. Many good choices.
Well here are a few ways I make healthier choices through my day;
Fage(Greek yogurt) for sour cream
Egg whites for egg yolks
Quinoa for rice
Fruit for starchy snack (Cheezits)
Chicken/turkey for beef (not always because I like beef too)
Add fruit to water to encourage more consumption
Here are some helpful ways to encourage more veggies in your routine:
Eat colorfully: try to have 3-4 different colors on your plate
Grate Mushrooms into food: my girlfriend taught me this. She does it for her little one who doesn't like them.
Oh Kale: My husbands least favorite. Incorporate it into spaghetti sauce. You'll never know.
How do you integrate veggies into your diet?
