My actual goal is to eat healthier. I want to cut down on red meat, and eventually most meat. I want to eat organic foods without additives and sprays.
I eat a lot of fresh veges and fruits. I also eat some frozen fruits and veges. If they’re not in season and you can’t get them fresh, frozen is okay – as long as there are no additives.
One thing I read last year was if there are more than five ingredients and you can’t pronounce any of them – don’t buy it. I’m working on that, but have a long way to go.
Why is it so many things have twenty or more ingredients that you know aren’t good for you? But they sound so good. Sometimes they are and sometimes I kick myself because it really wasn’t worth it.
So fruit and veges, chicken and fish, brown rice and olive oil are becoming my ‘favorite’ foods. Quinoa is good for you, but I haven’t found a way to eat it that I like yet.
I’m an egg for breakfast person, but I’m trying to substitute steel cut oats with blueberries and almond milk.
I’m also trying to avoid a lot of gluten. If I eat very much of it my body does weird things, like an elevated pulse.
And we’re in Tucson for the winter. My husband loves to eat at pubs. Everything on the menu looks unhealthy. (Not that I don’t like it – like pulled pork sandwiches, but not healthy)
We ate where they posted the calories, sodium, etc. and I ordered a salad with 1450 calories and 2200 grams of sodium. L
So I’m struggling. Have you any suggestions for helping me to eat healthy?
How are you doing with your goals this year? Do you need any help?
