Healthy Choices Matter

I cannot stress enough how conscious one must be and how one must be in tune with their subconscious to remain in control of the things you eat every day! Some people say it’s calories and some say it has to do with carbohydrates.

People automatically assume any carbs, calories, or sugars is evil. On the contrary, these foods such as carbs, help with energy and maintaining some energy depending on the type of carb you consume. Calories, they are in anything that you consume, for example, an apple contains 95 calories. Sugars and sodium, they both play a part in your health. The one moment that changed me where I realized the true impact of sugars and sodium is through an interview with Dr. Oz. Both sodium and sugars is alright to take in moderation, the problem with our society and with processed food is that most of what you see in boxes of cookies, yogurts, etc. contain paramount amounts of sugars! Sodium is a little forgiving in the amount consumed but like carbs, sugars can convert into fat if you have too much of it and obviously may cause long term problems such as obesity, diabetes, heart problems, etc.

Keeping that in mind, however, you don’t need to stop your entire life and deprive yourself of such indulgences. Normally, so as to prevent myself from eating out or spending money and depending on the shake to maintain my nutrition, I just go home and drink a shake. However, today, the weather gave me a different plan.  Just a few moments ago my phone was buzzing with warnings of a flood watch. Clearly this was not the moment to try and go out to grab a shake, so I accepted my circumstances and went to the work cafeteria to eat.

There was a section near their grill section that stated “Italian Sauté” and I have seen similar stations during the week like “Stir Fry” etc. but every single time they give the option to grab a bunch of veggies and the option to select your choice of protein. So imagine it like a work Chipotle but you have to grab your own veggies.

So I threw in bell peppers, onion, broccoli, mushrooms, such a delectable combination of vegetables to have stir fried on a pan by cooks, then I ordered the chicken. So by the time it came to the pasta, I said just put in the pesto sauce and no pasta. So I was rewarded with a discounted meal by omitting the pasta. Amazing!

How life works in your favor when you wanna stay healthy! So I will recreate later tonight the vegetable stir fry with pesto sauce and post to my blog shortly after. I want you all to understand the amazingness of healthy food! People think you have to eat like a rabbit but the beauty of food is that you can modify to how you see fit, you can add more veggies, you can add spices, you can just love your food to it’s end and it will love you back! Food is like a relationship, you eat trash and that is what will enter your body and be of you but when you eat healthiful and colorful meals, your life will be just that, healthy and colorful!

You are amazing! You CAN do this! Anything is possible once you set your mind to it! You guys, I have done a million things in the book this being 207 pounds at 5’4″ when I gave birth to my daughter and by now I am extremely well versed in nutrition and what’s good for you and bad for you. Allow me to be your coach and give you results! I want you to be your BEST self and I know you do too!

Please bear with me while I concoct my veggie and chicken stir fry recipe but in the meantime, get yourself to my site and go nuts with the health movement and don’t hesitate to ask me questions if there are any:
