So my husband and I have been trying for awhile now to be more aware of the types of food we eat. Since we moved to KY we had been eating out more and more bcause there are just so many more options here tempting us. And let's face it, it's fun to eat out! Well, we've realized enough is enough! While all that stuff may taste good, the vast majority of it is high calorie, fat laden, processed junk!
This past week we have really kicked our healthy eating into high gear. (Jack really intiated it and has been doing better than me!) We are avoiding all the fake stuff: enriched pasta, breads, etc, anything with HFCS, really anything with alot of ingredients that we don't recognize, and loading up on the fruits, veggies, whole grains!
We've started buying our beef from a local farmer who produces grass fed/grass finished beef. It's only a couple bucks more per pound than the walmart stuff, and so much better for you (it tastes better too!) I'm still working on finding a local farmer to buy chicken from, but until then I've been buying the free range stuff from Kroger.
We're trying out a couple new things this week. Here's the plan.
WW toast with scrambled eggs
Oatmeal with berries
Tuna/ brocolli/ apples
chicken and veggies stirfry with brown rice
quinoa bowls with beans/tomatoes/parm cheese
