No, I am not a loser who spelled meet wrong, I am talking about MEAT, you know, like the stuff you eat. Erin over at The Healthy Apron asked me to help spread the word about MeatLESS May. (Sorry I am a little late girl, it’s been a busy month!)
Please note Erin is not saying (nor am I) to stop eating meat. I for one will always ALWAYS have meat as a PART of my diet. I also realize it can be unhealthy to eat it too much. We as Americans are so programmed (especially in the south) that in order for a meal to be a meal it must involve meat. So, let’s join Erin and at least try to look into other healthy non-meat options. Even if you just throw in a random new meal once a week, you may even find a new favorite!
I will admit, for about two weeks now I have been eating more healthy and just by doing that I am noticing big changes. My face is more clear, I have more energy, and my sugar cravings haven’t been as bad as I thought they would be. I have been focusing on foods that are healthy and taste good, but that will keep me FULL so I am not constantly in the panty or refrigerator during the day.
One snack I have been eating almost everyday is Chobani yogurt, more specifically strawberry banana. Holy yum! The store closest to my house NEVER has strawberry banana so I drive to a FURTHER AWAY store just for this stuff. It’s so amazingly wonderful. It keeps me FULL in between meals which is one reason I am loving it!
I am also not eating late at night like I was when we first moved in. We were seriously eating ice cream and cupcakes almost every night, it was crazy. and unhealthy. and I slept horribly.
My next goal is drinking more water. I am about to be traveling a lot so this is super important! I know this will also help clear up my face. Fingers crossed!
QOTD: What is a healthy change you have made lately that you have noticed benefitting your health?
