There is something I love about food. It comforts me in times of stress. It makes me feel loved. It is a way I express love to others.
Food is just awesome! But why can't food be both awesome and healthy? I say it can!
I have read lots of books, seen lots of shows, and heard several people tell me that I should eat to fuel my body. That eating is how I should keep myself going and that I need to give it the proper fuel to help it perform at it's optimum. So why do I like the junk so much? I know what to do to fuel myself properly, so why don't I just do it?
Well, for the last two weeks, I have been trying really hard to eat more fruits and veggies during the day and with my meals. I have learned to like some different veggies in this process: brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, and green beans.
The photo is what I had for dinner tonight! Lots of green veggies! And I am so full now!
I am trying to keep myself out of the kitchen after its been cleaned and dinner is done, but for some reason, I just love having a snack after my kids are in bed. But not tonight, I had my "dessert" and I will stay out of there!
Wish me luck!
