Eating healthy can be hard, Trust me, I understand. In my family we have pretty much always made from-scratch meals so it was always pretty easy to eat healthy. But as I got older I was in charge of making my snack and I didn't always make the best choices.... And I still struggle with it. Over the years I have gained a little more weight than I would have liked so, I have set a new goal for myself.
Setting a goal whether you are trying to lose weight or just maintain where you are now is a good idea. My personal goal for my self this school year is cutting back on pastas and breads/rice. Now I'm not cutting them out completely, but if I have bread on a certain day it is one piece or a half of a piece.
Eating healthy isn't only for losing weight, it can help you have more energy. After eating a chick-fil-a sandwich I feel tired and gross. But after I eat vegetable soup with carrots,potatoes, turnips, tomatoes and zucchini I feel full of life and ready to finish up my day! Don't you?
Eating healthy can be fun too! Instead of eating a big ole bowl of mashed potatoes (which honestly sounds sooo yummy... BUT) you could eat some mashed cauliflower! Yummy! I love doing this and it taste very similar. I also LOVE eating my chicken alfredo sauce over broccoli instead of noodles! It is better for you and it is scrumptious!
Eating healthy doesn't have to be impossible to achieve. It's all about trying new things and finding what you like! Lets go on a journey together to start eating better for our bodies!
