I feel like I am a pretty healthy person, but I do think that there is room for improvement. I am working on eating healthier. It’s not that I eat badly, but I would like to eat more whole foods and have less sugar. Some things that I am trying….
Ezekial Bread – I love how natural this bread is. It is not processed heavily like so many other breads. I also really like the nutty flavor it has. I freeze it so it lasts longer.
Green Smoothies – I have stocked up on spinach for plenty of smoothies. I have tried some recipes that I like, and some that I hate. Carrots and beets…not one I would recommend. Spinach, banana, blackberries? definitely. My problem with green smoothies is that I want to put lots of fruit in so it tastes good, but what I really need is to add vegetables. I am slowly adding more vegetables. I just have to find the right combo.
Grapeseed Oil – I am trying to use this healthier oil in my cooking. You really cannot tell the difference.
Carrots and Hummus – When I get home from school, I need a snack. I am trying to turn to these two instead of less healthy, processed snacks.
Almond Milk – I do not really like milk, but I am trying to get some more calcium. I really like unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I try to drink a glass at least a couple times a week.
I am also trying lots of new recipes from my Runner’s World Cookbook. It is an awesome cookbook that I would highly recommend. The picture above is of turkey sausage with lots of herbs, feta cheese, and rigatoni. Next time, I plan on using whole wheat pasta, but I didn’t want to waste the pasta I already had. I want to be healthy, but I still have to live on a budget! (Also, don’t freak out. That is grapeseed oil, not sausage grease! The turkey sausage is quite lean!)
How do you make sure you eat healthy?
