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.
