Day One!

Hi there!

I hope everyone is on board with our healthy habits challenge!  I have already thought of lots of motivating and helpful posts to get started on.  I just want to start with this one and say, WOW!   One of my goals is to look this good in itty bitty white shorts!

Tomorrow I will post a list of HIGH FIBER FOODS and LOW SUGAR FOODS.  To clarify, 6 grams of sugar means in any one thing you eat, not for the whole day.  That would be near impossible.  Milk is o.k too.  It is higher in sugar, but I think a little skim milk will not hurt you!  Almond milk is a yummy alternative. 

Here is something I ripped out of Oxygen Magazine and put on my fridge.  The question was, “I rely on about three cups of coffee a day.  How can I increase my energy without caffeine?  The answer was to munch on snacks that combine a slow-digesting carbohydrate with protein.  Here are a few options:

6 almonds + string cheese + 1 medium pear

1 orange + 12 cashews + 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese

2 slices whole grain toast + peanut butter + 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese

high-fiber dry cereal (8 grams of fiber) + skim milk + fruit

They also said to sip green tea.  It has about 1/3 the amount of caffeine per cup and green tea has fat-burning antioxidants! 

Enjoy!!  

One thought on “Day One!

  1. Gram for gram pistachios have more protein than halibut, more fibre than broccoli, and more potassium then bananas. More antioxident than blueberries and red wine combined!

    We offer the biggest and best pistachios grown on our California Family Farm roasted with Himalayan Pink Salt. A mildly sweet and lightly salted snack that’s good for you, delivering 7 grams of monounsaturated fatty acids per serving. Low sodium and a good source of dietary fiber, protein, B1 (thiamin), magnesium, and manganese. Visit our webpage http://www.aropistachio.com
