Whatcha Eating?

Today’s post is about food! What are you eating? Are you bored with your food options? Part of wellness is nutrition. You can work out all the time and fail in the area of nutrition. If the body doesn’t have the right fuel, it will not run well. If the body doesn’t have the right food, you can still gain weight with exercise.

The picture above is from my own kitchen. I confess I get bored with the same menu all the time. I eat loads of seafood and vegetables. I have to come up with creative ways to eat healthier.

Some ideas…

Season it! I highly recommend the Seasonings of Salonica-Spicy Greek. http://www.spicygreek.com. The seasoning is not spicy. It’s delicious. They have seasonings for fish, chicken, vegetables, meat, and it’s tasty. It’s a great way to cook fish, chicken, or meat dishes with a new flavor!

Join Pinterest and look for new recipes. I have thousands. Granted I don’t cook them all, yet there are tons of ideas.

Grill it up! There are so many healthy options for the grill. If you don’t have a regular grill, there’s always the George Forman Grill.

Farm fresh goodness. Think of your plate like a paint canvas. Aim to cover it with many colors of fruits and vegetables. Make it colorful and beautiful! Visit your local farmers market and look for new ingredients.

Slenderize your favorite food items. I love Mexican food. It’s delicious. I’ve found the best way to eat it is at home with healthy options. More salsa and less cheese/sour cream.

Last night I made Carne Asada tacos.

Skirt steak
Light sour cream
Salsa
Salsa verde
Spinach
Fresh tomato
Small amount of Mexican cheese blend
Corn tortillas

It was far healthier than the restaurant versions.

When you make your own food, you control the fat content, salt content, and portions.

So, cheering for you to have a diverse plate. Add more spices! Try new things. Make cooking an adventure. πŸ™‚
