Eating is a Natural Process
Eating is a natural process that your body knows how to do and do well if you let it! Eating should be a routine process and not one that is fraught over. Give your body love and nourishment on a daily basis. Your body will thank you for it!
Eating Healthy & Feeling Good
Does not have to be confusing! Tune into your body and how you feel. Your body will tell you if you are eating healthy or eating junk. Do not overthink when it comes to eating!
Think Moderation not Restriction!
I use the rule of 5! I look at the ingredients and if there is more than 5 ingredients I usually pass, especially if I have no clue what an ingredient is. I watch the sugar and sodium intake too. I want a slow burn with the foods I fuel my body with that keeps me satisfied longer and the cravings away. Not that quick release of energy with a crash!
Fruits & Veggies & Whole Grains Please!
Try and introduce fruits and veggies into every meal! Fresh is Best! Nothing else has been added. Explore the produce section of the grocery store and buy what is in season because it is cheaper. You may have to experiment with a fruit or veggie if you first do not like it (raw, roasted, grilled, steamed, etc.).
Load up on the whole grains! I went there and love it. Quinoa is slowly growing on me and would love to try making Farro. I love brown rice and have expanded that love to brown rice pasta. I also love nuts and seeds to add protein and good fats.
Think greens! I enjoy adding greens to my meals and making the occasional vegetarian meal. I have a few greens that I have not acquired a taste for and that is okay because there are so many greens to try. Just have some fun trying new foods!
