Saying “no” to fast food
Here we are, halfway through January and it feels good to be eating a little healthier. I haven’t been sticking to any “rules”, just trying to pay attention to what feels the best.
My body seems to be liking an assortment of fruits, cooked vegetables, eggs, small portions of meat, and fish. Almond butter is making an appearance nearly every day.
Local honey has replaced the sweetener in my coffee (it feels better) and I haven’t had a soda since I read a scary article about aspartame at the start of the year.
And … Fast food. Let’s face it … It’s kind of addictive, even though it’s a low-quality experience. It’s been surprisingly effective to tell myself that a diet of fast food is the equivalent of shoving a “wal-mart experience” down my throat. Sorry if that sounds weird – it actually makes me think. I’ve still eaten a few meals on the go- but I’ve put more thought into it and ended up with much better choices.
So here are some of the highlights of the week. The added bonus is, the better I eat, the better I feel .
