Many of us think about nutrition daily, hourly, or not at all.
At Chloe's SFFC, we are always thinking of ways to marry nutrition, fun and flavor.
Its National Nutrition Month and that got us thinking about the sentiment:
"Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day"
"Eat right" is one thing, but what makes this mantra interesting is- "your way."
You have to eat right for you. What is realistic and fun for you?
Developing a plan for eating right and sticking to it is intimidating.
Not to be negative, but what helps me, is thinking about the ways NOT to eat?
Standing and eating- this approach is so much easier and it just happens before I realize I am doing it!
Eating off others plates- why does it always look better on someone else's plate?
Waiting too long in between meals- total recipe for disaster
In creating this DO NOT do list (I love me a list) - I feel like I have a place to begin to make positive changes and move toward "eating right, my way, every day." I am pretty good about eating healthy but the how I eat needs some work -see above.
To finish off nutrition month and in the months ahead, I am going to: 1) sit down while eating, ahh sounds lovely;
2) keep my fork to myself, Jason and the kids will be relieved; and 3) focus on planning meals, reserving fasting for the appropriate occasions.
We welcome your tips, and words of wisdom and questions. Happy Nutrition Month!
