Eat Your Veggies!
So what to do?
I knew I would not:
Weigh and Measure everything
Drink my Meals
Face it I love food! I love food in the morning and I love food in the evening and hours in between. I love food in the kitchen, I love food in the car, I love food in the living room and I bet I would love food on the moon.
Food is my addiction. I love to eat and I love to feed people. It's my social outlet. Food is my comfort. Food is my entertainment. I'm thinking about food most of my waking hours. What's for dinner? What do I need from the grocery store? What fast food is on the way?
So if I wasn't going to quit eating that meant that I had to walk 20 miles a day???? I don't think so!!! Me? Move? Let's all stand on our heads and hold our breath! Not gonna happen!
So how did I expect to change my body or my life if I wasn't willing to make real changes?
wait for it ... it's a Light bulb moment!
I LIKE FOOD!
OMG ... I JUST NEED TO EAT THE RIGHT FOOD
Okay so here it is in a nutshell ...
I eat vegetables! Any vegetable except white potatoes and corn.
I eat fruit! Fresh or frozen fruit with no sugar added.
I eat beef! It doesn't have to be grass fed, but yes, for obvious reasons it is the better choice!
I eat pork! I eat chicken! I still don't eat fish other than canned tuna. Just don't like it.
I eat lots of nuts ... cashews, walnuts and especially almonds
I eat eggs, cheese and even bacon.
I drink a lot of Green Smoothies.
I drink a lot of water & green Ice Tea.
If it is made from or derived from corn, wheat or rice I try to avoid.
I avoid beans. Well so far I do ... this fall will be Chile Season ... help?
If I have to have fast food ... I peel the bread off the patty and I eat it ... with a side-salad!
I have switched to Coconut Oil and have switched to Almond milk.
I don't know what diet or program you would call it ... but its working ... At least it is for us.
Now what's for dinner?
