Another thing I am really passionate about is food!! Not always the healthy kind either! I have always been into healthy eating and nutrition since my college years when I learned a thing or two!! 😉 My goal for this week is to eat as many fruits and veggies as I can in hopes of keeping this a regular routine in our household. I don’t believe in diets, I believe in Lifestyle changes! I also hope to get my husband and children in on this Veggie and Fruit Overload. I have done my prep work and bought all my fresh produce yesterday from Aldi. Which by the way, has really great prices on produce and it is very fresh!! I usually do Trader Joes, but I am trying to put a lifestyle change on my budget too!! I am not against eating frozen produce either, as long as there are no additives, preservatives, or added sugar in them. My goal is to lose about 15 pounds but I am not putting a time and date on it. My main goal is to be healthy, have more energy, and feel good in my clothes!! I will take one day at a time. So off I go.. Monday day 1!!
Yesterday I cut up some cantaloupe and pineapple for the family. My 2 year-old and I ate some for breakfast this morning and it was delicious!! For lunch I am going to make some salads with turkey bacon, hard-boiled eggs, avocados, green onions, and tomatoes. Dinner tonight will be a crustless Quiche with feta cheese, spinach or broccoli, onions, and mushrooms. My mouth just started to drool!!
Wish me luck everyone!! If anybody would like to join me in my veggie and fruit overload journey, please comment on my website or Facebook page! I would love to share stories, recipes, etc. Happy Monday Everyone!!!
