I want to issue a challenge to all of my readers to commit to eating one extremely healthy meal each week for one month. You can write and post a picture if you have your own blog or you can post pictures and comments on your Facebook and/or Twitter accounts. This, obviously, is completely voluntary, but I think it is a great way to encourage each of us to spend time thinking about our health and then taking action. I plan to write a post about my meal prep and the final product on Wednesday mornings about my dinner on the previous Tuesday night.
By healthy I mean: lean proteins like fish, chicken, turkey or bison. Fresh veggies like broccoli, asparagus, peppers, onions, etc. (personally I do not eat corn, although I love it, because it is full of sugar and has very little nutritional value). If you eat a carbohydrate make sure to research the best to eat. For me I prefer some form of wheat rice or plain baked potato. Not all carbohydrates are created equal, so be careful. If you choose to make a salad, please be sure to take it light on the dressing.
If you are not familiar with preparing a truly healthy meal, then go to Skinny Taste, http://www.skinnytaste.com/, for great ideas. The most important thing that I did when learning to live a healthy life was to completely retrain my mind about eating. I acted as if I knew nothing and relied 100% on Skinny Taste…it worked for me so maybe worth a try.
Anyway, if you would like to join our “support group” just comment and then take action by posting a meal. Be sure to get involved with the entire process and document why you choose the particular items, where you bought your foods, how you prepared each, how it tasted and how the experience made you feel. The more you invest yourself in the process the more meaningful the experience will be!
Remember, just one meal per week for four weeks. That’s the extent of your commitment!
I really think this is going to be fun and I look forward to seeing your posts via WordPress, Facebook and Twitter!
