My favorite food was salad and pizza of course😄 (Don't worry they still are my favorite foods. )
Sounds pretty healthy right? Well, not quite.....just like a lot of people I had my 3-4 meals that we (my family) liked to make. They were easy, fast and tasted good.
I never noticed until 3 years ago how often I was eating the same meal and how often I was eating the same food items over and over again. Spaghetti, noodles, red sauce and a few veggies, with lots of garlic bread or Nachos veggie meat (lots of wheat and soy) cheese (which I'm not really supposed to have, I'll talk about that later), salsa and a few veggies. Salad, mixed greens veggies and some protein.
None of these foods are unhealthy for you, but if this is all you are eating with only a few changes, every few days you might not be getting what you need. Variety, Joy of food - from food, Pizazz, key Nutrients....etc
Your body might be craving more.
Here it is 3 Tips To Eating Healthy:
1. Mix it up:
Mix up the meals you are eating. Notice if you are tempted to make pasta for the second night in a row. Get online, find a new recipe that intrigues you. By yourself a beautiful cook book and commit to making at least 1 new meal from it each week.
2. Every Color of the Rainbow-Add Variety to your meal:
Add color and Pizazz! Make your meal as colorful as you can. Think my meal can be every color of the rainbow. Make it picture worthy if you are into instagram or pictures on Facebook.
3. Fully Enjoy your meal:
Really savory it, fully tasting every flavor you put into the meal. If you've done the two tips above. Celebrate! You've just created this beautiful meal! Whoop! Take in with all your senses, the colors. The smell. The taste. The sounds of sizzle. Feel the joy and warmth this meal brings you.
When you do this, you will add more nutrients to your meal. You also help increase your digestion and add the joy of food into your diet. Your life and your presence. This is super key to full nourishment.
So, I invite you all to check in: Are you fully nourishing your body? Or are you just eating for eating sake, because you are hungry but you really don't care any more and you really just can't be bothered.
Nourishing ourselves is so much more than what we eat, but what we put in our bodies and on our bodies is SOOO important.
