Healthy Treat

I have been going back and forth for a few weeks of trying to eat very clean and healthy, but because I struggle so much with food I really crash often out of years of bad habits and sheer convenience of crap-food.  However, this week I have done very well, feel so good physically and mentally about making a conscious effort to do better.  My family fell in LOVE with this super healthy snack that doesn't even compare to the junk in microwave popcorn bags.  I know, I know.....I have eaten that stuff for YEARS & YEARS, but really if you look, there is trans fat all through the microwave-oh-so-easy-popcorn bags.  This way was sooooooooooooooo easy and just as fast as the microwave and eons better for my family's bodies.  The taste was ADDICTING.

Would you believe I am now into eating hummus, bee pollen, flaxseed and drumroll..........veggies?

Watch out, I might just become healthy.

  1. I JUST read this article that is really helping me. It said that instead of focusing on cutting things out (like unhealthy food), you should focus on putting something different IN and eventually it will crowd out the bad habit. Like, instead of "I'm cutting out all junk food", you should say "I'm taking my vitamins every day, drinking 3 bottles of water and eating 2 snacks of a fresh fruit or veggie" (or whatever you need to begin doing better). I've been trying it for 2 weeks and amazingly, I'm not nearly as tempted by junk or as hungry as I usually am. Besides, adding in the healthy things makes me feel a lot less guilty when I do have something that isn't healthy, because it's less often.
