Salad… You Do Not Need Lettuce.

Salads… You Do Not Need Lettuce

2-27661_fruit-and-vegetables-clipartI have a thought for those of you who say you “hate salad.” Did you know you can throw a few fruits and/or veggies of your choice and call it a salad?

Start with a few green beans and grapes if that’s all you enjoy from the produce dept. Or how about a sliced apple, maybe a clementine, and some green beans? How about an apple, cheese, and grapes?

I’m not saying to leave out kale and spinach if you enjoy them. I eat them very often. I am just letting people know they can add nutrients to their diet in a more creative way if they do not like lettuce, kale, or spinach.

Be creative and try to get at least three healthy items into that bowl.

No Need to Eat 100% Healthy 100% of the Time

No need to eat 100% healthy 100% of the time. Yes, you heard right. Karen Goeller, CSCS, the person who has been teaching people about health, fitness, and strength for over 30 years just said that!

cartIf you try to eat 80%-90% healthy, you’ll likely be satisfied and remain close to your ideal weight. But first, define healthy.

In my opinion, healthy foods are food from the produce, fish, and meat sections of the supermarket. That’s fruits, vegetables, and lean meats. Yes, potatoes and yams included. Just stay away from the boxed meals, fast-foods, and junk foods.

Try really hard to snack on high-quality foods rather than cookies, candies, and other processed foods with low or no nutritional value.

And yes, I DO eat bread and a high protein-omega-3 pasta made from legumes. I personally enjoy Oat Nut bread and Barilla pasta in the yellow box. The Ezekiel bread is high quality too. And of course, your beverages count. Keep the sugar and syrups OUT of your coffee!

So try this. next time you go to the store, be sure that 8 or 9 of every ten items in your cart are actually healthy items. I personally only eat 80%-90% healthy. Remember to define healthy before you make changes.

Good luck… Stay healthy!

Fatigue…

I heard a medical doctor answer the question, “what should I do if I’m tired all the time?” He immediately suggested expensive and stressful medical tests. he failed to mention the most simple solutions.
