It's been a while since my last blog but here I am again. I will try to post as often as I can. For now, I'd like to share my journey to staying healthy.
I'm neither a nutritionist nor a dietician but I am an aspiring chef and a confirmed food lover. In short, I love food too much. ;-)
I refuse to let the word diet take over my life and I don't think you should, either. I am an avid fan of smart eating - it's not about settling for less; it's about loading more good and nutritious stuff on your plate. Mind you, I give myself a slack every now and then. Hmmmm.....sweet potato fries, chic-fil-a fries and more fries, pasta, pecan pie ala mode. Uh oh I just said it! I do try to stay on top of my healthy eating. I choose to eat well and stay fit because I love my body, I love my life and above all, I love the way healthy eating makes me feel.
Eating right and staying fit are some of the most important things you can do to protect yourself and your family from diseases. Staying fit involves more effort than just working out a few times a week. While it's certainly important to work out, eating the right food is equally important.
To start this whole smart and healthy eating, remember that the PATH you follow in the grocery store could help you eat right and avoid wasting money on products you don't need. SHOP the perimeter. Have you ever wondered why most grocery stores put milk or produce as far away from the entrance as possible? Supermarkets hope to lure shoppers into buying other goods in the store on the way to the products they really need. STICK to the edges of the store and stick to your healthy eating plan!
As mentioned above, I'll be posting healthy meal plans, home remedies and maybe some of my secret work out routines so stick around. ;-)
