The importance of eating healthy cannot be stressed enough. When we eat good, we feel good! Eating the right fruits and vegetables is important in getting our daily dose of vitamins and minerals and replenishing the cells in our body. The foods we eat will either build us up, or break us down. While it may be different for everyone, most people will say they feel much better after a plate of salad, roasted vegetables, and chicken, fish or steak than ones with processed meats or dairy.
HEALTHY MEAL IDEAS:
- 2 HARD BOILED EGGS, SIDE SALAD, AND ROASTED CARROTS
- GRILLED CHICKEN BREAST, GREEN BEANS, CELERY (I really like them with white wine mustard)
- ROASTED BROCCOLI, FISH, PIECE OF EZEKIEL TOAST
- RICE CAKES, SCRAMBLED EGGS, AND SALSA
These are just a few ideas, and ones that work for me. Also, when I’m in a rush, I’ll grab a protein bar from our shelf for extra protein and it’s gets me through until my next meal!
