Wellness of body: Part 1
I’ve been committed to my Brick-house mindset for the past 6 years, with regards to health and fitness! Go Me! Despite my commitment to workout, I’ve never been too concerned about the food I ate until I met my man(<3)! I ate what I wanted, when I wanted, how I wanted! Pizza hut, McDonald’s, KFC, an embarrassing amount of bread and butter (yum), cakes, cookies, Pepsi…and so much more! Morning, noon, and late at night! Not much fruit, hardly any vegetables, only the “good” stuff! It was such a blissful mess! I thought that I could eat what I wanted and just exercise to balance it… wrong! What we eat actually has more of an impact on our overall health and well-being! We really are, what we eat!
Changing my diet, has changed my life! I’ve incorporated more fruit and veggies into my diet, and have eliminated red meat, pork (except for bacon at brunch lol), and have significantly cut out processed foods! I’ve become more organic in my food choices, but you have to start somewhere!
Eating an apple a day is essential to keep the doctor away! I haven’t been sick in years! I use a whole apple in my oatmeal, and often transform my glass of wine into a luscious Sangria with the same (I like to keep things exciting)! I also enjoy blueberries, blackberries, grapes, bananas, grapefruit, pineapples and the list goes on! And let’s not forget about the wide variety of vegetables and that good ole’ roughage! Leafy greens in salads, loads of kale in my juices, squash and red pepper stir fry…oh yes and steamed broccoli with carrots! YUM!
I don’t know all of the statistics, I just know how my body has fabulously responded to my dietary change! Improved digestion, increased energy, and just an overall wellness of body from the inside out! I still have a slice of cake and a piece of fried chicken every once in a while, but it is all in moderation! I dare you to give it a try! Challenge yourself over the next seven days to commit to eating a full serving of fruit and vegetables daily! Transform your diet, one step at a time, and watch how amazing you will feel!
