i've been doing something totally unlike me for the sake of nutrition. i've been bringing a snack to work lately. that's not unusual but what's unusual for me is that it's a container of fresh, raw vegetables. i eat them straight out of the container and when i do it i feel like a barn animal because who does that?! but i'm finding ways to sneak in healthier snacks (in between the not so healthy snacks). to not lose interest in nutrition, it has to be vegetables that i like. but now i'm finding i need to change it up on occasion to prevent boredom of the same ones.
vegetables over fruit
i like vegetables more than fruit so it's an easy choice. i think i'd eat more fruit if i didn't like chocolate so much. i think my sweet tooth is OVER satisfied so when someone says fruit, i might say, nah, too sweet.
vegetables are bland when you aren't seasoning and cooking them but it's not end of all awful. if i think of them as healthy for my insides, it's no big deal to eat a container full.
i've been eating radishes, carrots, celery, broccoli and cauliflower raw. there isn't much flavor but when you talk about health, flavor isn't as important, as long as it doesn't taste bad (you know, like brussel sprouts). unless of course, you like brussel sprouts.
intentions for the week: find ways to eat nutritious foods, and in the highest context. a.k.a. minus the seasonings and fats. THEN i can have my french fries. 🙂
My previous ABC blog was n for nurture. it was a longer blog but a reminder of how important nurturing is to our physical selves. find it here.
adult coloring books, you say? i made one that helps you attain a direction in your life. it interviews you as you color. check it out on amazon here. p.s. the kindle edition isn't as fun as the paperback since you won't have the actual book.
