This week I went with a couple friends to hear Dr Ann speak. If you don't know who she is, visit her website at http://www.drannwellness.com/. She has a lot of tips and videos on eating and living healthy. I'm reading her new book and it's really good! It tells exactly what to eat and why.
I heard her speak a year ago also. It was good to hear it again because I forget. It's so hard to eat the way she does. It's really hard for us to change our habits and change what we like to eat (especially when we get stressed - which is probably a lot more than we like to admit). And part of if is we just don't know what to do with kale or quinoa!
I had the thought of looking for recipes with more beans, whole grains and veggies and trying them out. Then I'll post about it and share the recipe. I like to try new foods so it should be fun. We'll see how I can keep up with it! So look for this in the future!
I also want to look for easy ways to subsitute a healthy thing for an unhealthy one. I think this is key. We can't just remove things from our diet because we'll just crave it even more. We need to replace a bad habit with a good one.
