Ladies, we love to eat what we love to eat, right? I know I do!
Well, here's some food for thought: Food is your friend. That's right, I said it. And instead of depriving yourself of the foods you love, why not take an inventory of the typical foods you eat and consider how you can incorporate more healthy foods in your daily routine.
If your kids needed extra fruits and vegetables, you'd find a way to make sure they ate them right? If they needed to drink more water, you'd be finding creative ways to get that water in them without fail. And if the doctor told you that your child needed a more balanced diet, you would plan out their daily meals in a heartbeat to make sure they were on track.
So, here's the question: What about YOU?
The foods you eat can absolutely make you or break you, however, instead of losing sleep over what you eat on a given day, take a step back and evaluate where you can make those positive changes today.
There is no need to worry about the past and dwell on the negative- tomorrow is a new day! How will you make the most of it? Remember, eat to live and enjoy it!
