Have you ever been shopping for Healthy Food to find Its so expensive to eat healthy!!?? DID ANYONE TELL US HEALTHY LIVING IS EXPENSIVE! Happens all the time and it shouldn’t be that way so I decided to try and make alot of my snacks and meals using healthy ingredients and tweaking some abit! Remember we need all the food basics and the Good Carbs with fiber, easy on the oils and I use Olive Oil and real Butter sparingly cuz I love it so!!
Going to a big grocery store that carries a lot of variety and seems to have more healthy choices is a great idea!
Myself I tend to stay away from breads unless their high in fiber and low in gluten. I also Love Love the Flat-out oblong tortilla like wraps that I can use for a sandwich, a wrap, tacos, breakfast wrap and they don’t have alot of points or bad in ingredients in them and come in a variety of flavors!!! Also those Petridrige Farm multigrain bun type sandwich thins are good to for sandwich making, toast etc. They are in the bread section at stores!
Oh and don’t forget the Flat Out Artisan Pizza Crust! Their a life saver when hubby wants Pizza!! And only 5 points for whole thing! Can’t beat that.
Well the Holidays are over and I survived! BUT.. I’m sure I gained a couple pounds; Tried to be good with the main meal, but the cookies! well that’s another story! must of had at least 6-7 within a week period! SO I’m owning up and facing the scale this week!
Hey we can’t quit now just buck up and start a new day!!!
We got this!
Back to the gym tomorrow! I missed Friday and Monday!! Thank goodness I have my Gizzel sp
Thats one thing I cannot quit is my workouts; AND NEITHER CAN YOU! If WE’RE NOT doing them I fear WE won’t keep the inches off that WE WANT TO LOSE AND and KEEP LOSING
Myself down 5 Sizes man!!! Never felt so good and had fun wearing different cloths! But mainly I feel good about me and like me!! haven’t felt that in many many years!
Hey anytime you want to share to talk just give me a yell here!
********REMEMBER WE’RE NOT ALONE IN THIS
