So What Do I Eat!?
When it comes to healthy eating, an ounce of preparation can help shed a pound of fat, not to mention keep you energized and feeling great all day long. Eating for optimal health should include lots of variety, color, and flavors. The less you have to open a package or pop a top to get to your food, the better! Always remember a little bit of the real food goes a long way, so instead of trying to save calories by buying the “free” or “light” version of a food, eat the real food and feel satisfied for longer! An example of this would be enjoying a slice of Ezekiel bread, which is a sprouted, whole grain bread full of fiber and lots of intact nutrients, instead of a low carb Arnold Sandwich Thin which has been stripped of most of its nutritious components.
