It’s funny that I am writing a blog post today about being thankful for Healthy Eating when, admittedly, I enjoyed part of a very delicious apple from Applelicious (http://www.apples4you.com/), a local gourmet chocolate apple company. Ahem.
Anyways, I am thankful that a ‘lil over a year ago I began a journey of healthy eating and exercise that has made me feel and look better. You know, healthy eating isn’t all that awful. I enjoy so many delicious recipes, and have even found ways to enjoy my favorite foods without feeling guilty. (Like that apple…I just will exercise more and accommodate by adjusting my other foods when I eat like that.)
Today is National Healthy Eating Day (through the American Heart Association), and they are sharing 5 Goals to Healthy Eating which are actually goals that I’ve been using to do what I’ve done so far:
1. Eat more fruits and vegetables.
2. Eat more whole-grain foods.
3. Use olive, canola or safflower oil as your main kitchen fat.
4. Eat more chicken, fish and beans than other meats.
5. Read food labels to help you choose healthy foods.
Simple ways to be healthy, things that I am thankful for!
