Motivation For Healthly Eating

What Motivates Me? 

Well let me tell you how my addiction to Pinterest has change my ways of eating. 
First off, I work at home and attend class at home so I have to sit a lot during the day. 
With Online Networking and Promoting teams & listing & creating things. 
It's a lot of sitting, so its important to not put garbage down into your body.
It's also important to get up and move around. 

Here's my list of healthy habits I have picked up along the way of my long working days online. 

Every Sunday I shop for fresh veggies, I head to the veggie isle 1st.
 This reminds me of what I need vrs what I want. 

Shopping for 1 for 1 1/2 week of food.
Finding the freshest and cheapest foods is the hard part. Here in the northwest we have a WINCO a great savings on family shopping and budget shoppers.
 I can buy about 15 dollars in veggies for almost 2 weeks or maybe a little more. Great prices. 

Once I get home from my shopping trip I wash all veggies & fruit and start cutting and preparing in my mind what I would like to eat.
 I cut all veggies into different sizes for breakfast foods, lunch and dinner. 
The fruit is for all day snacks so I just mix it all together. 

After I have prepared my foods.

Finding good containers that will keep your food fresh as long as possible for storage.

This is a good way to keep veggies in front of you as a reminder of what to grab for a snack and cook for a meal. 

I have found a very good gluten free fat free cheese, and have replaced my bacon for turkey bacon.  1 egg with fruit and a little bit of squash potatoes.

Believe it or not alot of my ideas of how to shop, store, and cut.

Even cook some of the my new foods have come from  Pinterest.

I have lost 20 pounds this summer by cutting out the bad stuff, including sugar, major bad carbs, most pastas etc.
I have basically replaced alot of the bad stuff with sweet fruits and delicious fresh veggies.

  1. Hi! I'm a new follower from the Work Together Team. That's a great idea to cut vegetables up and have them in the refrigerator ready for whenever you want them. Thanks for the tip!
