I have been a vegetarian for the majority of my life. Unlike many of my vegan and vegetarian friends I chose this life style because I hated the taste and texture of meat. Which might seem lame but is the truth. 

Over the last few weeks, I have been discussing and researching transition to eating meat again. It honestly makes me nervous but from the research that I have conducted since the topic was brought up to me I can see the important of eating meat that is organic, clean of added hormones and chemical. The article that has intrigued me the most is from Antonio Valladres from healthyurbankitchen.com Take some time to read it. A worthwhile read.

So the question still remains will I eat meat again or not. I’m still not sure but I am considering all perspectives.

Email me if you have thoughts or questions.

 
Today is day 6 of the 21 day sugar detox. I feel pretty amazing. My thought are clearer and my performance is getting better each day. The first few days, I was a bit irritable, tired, and had difficulty with my normal workout schedule but that was better after day 3.I believe in this program  I'm excited about sharing more of this journey.
In Health,

Today I started Day 1 of a 21 day sugar detox. Erin Huggins created this program called The Sugar Smackdown to help with sugar and carb cravings. I thought because I eat pretty clean (if a food has more than 5 ingredients I won't eat it) it would be a snap. Day one is already kicking my butt. I'm crabby but I know this is part of the process. I'm in the for the long haul and over the next 21 days I'll write a bit about how I'm feeling and what I'm eating but as for today I miss putting Stevia in yogurt and granola! 
Stay tuned!!!!
In health,

 Keeping a food journal of your eating can help you determine which habits need breaking  and how you can get back on the path of eating right. It is important to be true to yourself and be accountable. It is eye opening to see that you ate your toddler's Goldfish or those candies from your co-worker's Candy Jar.

Steps to start a food journal:
1.Record days and times of your meals and snacks.
2.List the food and the serving size.
3.Write down the reason for eating. (Hungry, bored, upset)
4. Note where the meal or snack took place. (Home, work, a restaurant)
  • 1 Determine your motivation for eating. Are you truly hungry when you eat? If not, are you eating for emotional reasons?
  • 2 Compare the types of food and portions you eat with the food pyramid. Do you eat well-balanced meals with good serving sizes? Do some areas have room for improvement?
  • 3 Take note of your eating habits. Do you eat regularly, or do you eat a little and then overindulge later?
  • 4 Use the above as guidelines to determine your problem areas, and brainstorm ways to repair those problems.

  • Having a food journal will help you truly reach your nutrition goals.
