As we’re approaching the holidays with lots of yummy foods and treats for the kids, I encourage you to shift your focus and attitude with food. Instead of focusing on what to take “out of your diet” or what the kids “shouldn’t be having”, simply “add more healthy foods in”. More veggies, more fruit, more real food from nature that isn’t from a bag and wasn’t processed in a plant or factory. The more wholesome foods you eat, the less room and desire you’ll have for highly processed foods.
The benefits of simply adding 1 fruit and 2 to 3 veggies into your daily diet are enormous! Adults who eat cleaner have much more energy, are more positive, handle stress better and their moods are more balanced. Kids who eat real food do better in school and behave better at home.
Try it; and notice the results.
- Real food doesn’t come with a nutrition label!
- Real food isn’t taken out of a bag or a cardboard box!
- Real food isn’t processed in a plant or factory!
- Real food grows on the ground and on the trees and isn’t altered with artificial flavors, additives, preservatives, coloring and sugar.
Are you eating enough real food? Eat more real food so you can feel your real best!
Tip for this week: When shopping, make sure your cart has lots of fruits and veggies. When sitting down to a meal, look at your plate and make sure that at least 60% of your plate contains “real food”.
