Working off the New You 6 week meal plan is making me more conscious of the food I’m eating. I’m probably hitting an 80/20 balance right now. 80% of whole clean food and 20% of whatever I want. Or sometimes feels more like I need. I’m a sucker for strawberry rhubarb pie and a certain someone knows that. I ate it, loved it, and didn’t feel bad about it. I didn’t physically feel crappy for eating it and didn’t feel the need to dwell on straying from the meal plan. That’s what happens when you achieve balance.
Listen to your body, what is it asking for. 90% of the time a craving is actually a sign of dehydration, but with practice you will feel what your body needs. Drink some water and listen again. Still craving that ice cream? Eat it. Then how do you feel? Take notice. Dairy doesn’t normally make me feel good.
I went to my first farmers market of the year last week! I got fresh greens and tomatoes, and had amazing salad over the weekend. I bought Bliss Burgers straight from the farmer close to Huntsville. It feels so good to buy beef that is grass fed, hormone and antibiotic free. The beef industry is killing the planet, I don’t want to talk about that right now, but I think about it walking the meat coolers in the grocery store. It is so good for your body, health, and community to buy local good meat. The season has begun, get to your farmers market!
If you don’t know where to start to eat right, keep it simple. Try to eat as locally as possible, it’s the most nutrient dense food. Your body will thank you.
