Ok, everyone, it’s time to make some changes in my eating habits. My two main goals are cutting back on sugar and cutting back on processed food. When I sat back and thought about how I was going to accomplish this, I became overwhelmed. SO, I decided to start slow. I am starting with breakfast.
Every morning I have a cup of coffee with quite a bit of flavored creamer. Some might say I have some coffee with my creamer. Ha. I also have a bowl of cereal. So, breakfast really is the perfect place to start since my morning is filled with sugar AND processed food!
I switched to a cup of black tea in the morning with a little local honey. Honestly, I haven’t missed my coffee too much the past few days. As my husband and I talk about a future baby #2, it’s not a bad idea to cut out the caffeine anyway. I didn’t drink coffee for all of Logan’s pregnancy and I survived.
Next, I have been making smoothies for breakfast. I will write the 2 recipes I have been using so far at the end of the post. I went to Fresh Market and bought a bunch of organic fruits and veggies and every day I sort of make up my own smoothie. I also add a protein powder to my smoothie.
As I get more recipes and different ideas for breakfast, I will share. If anyone out there is in the same boat as I am, feel free to join me! January will be focused on breakfast, and I will focus on something else in February.
Handful of strawberries
Handful of spinach
Palm full of broccoli
1 scoop of Genesis Pure protein powder
1/2 cup or so of 0% Greek Yogurt
Handful of ice
I did the same as above except substituted blueberries for strawberries
The possibilities are really endless. Buy some organic fruits and veggies and just experiment!
Here’s to a healthy 2015!
