Eating Good Foods Daily Guide

This year I made a very important decision to consciously eat foods that are good for me and all natural. That means I was going to try to only eat foods that were made from all natural ingredients.

The key to eating consciously is to plan your meals so that there is no rushing around when it is meal time.

I usually lay out my breakfast choices the night before. My usual choices are a bowl of whole grain cereal and some berries.

Lunch is packed the night before and I make sure that my fridge is stocked with good fresh vegetables and fruit that I can put in a salad or sandwich with whole grain bread. If I forget my lunch at home, I try to buy a salad or soup that is non cream based for lunch from the cafeteria at work or at a local Subway.

Dinner is a fist sized portion of protein, a side of vegetables, and a brown rice or pasta. And dessert is usually some form of fruit. When I go out for dinner I try to make those same choices that I make at home. Once in a while I will indulge in that decadent Creme Brulee. Because it is important to satiate your taste buds and you just balance it out with a good walk or run tomorrow morning.

What have you done for bikini season and Spring break that is coming up? Comments are welcome.

  1. I totally agree with you about satiating the taste buds. Being healthy is all about balance. If we do our best to eat clean most of the time, then we should be able to fully indulge and enjoy ourselves when we want. I've been trying to eat more fresh fruit and vegetables and less processed foods. At home smoothies are also great, too!
