An Apple a Day!!

19 Apr

An apple a day keeps the pounds away!  Now this might not always be true if you eat all bad things every other time, but if you don’t want to watch or write down all the calories if you focus on eating healthier things a lot of times you will slowly eat more and more healthy items.  I find the more fruits and vegetables I eat the less other stuff I eat and that isn’t counting calories that is just something that naturally happens.  Now start with one thing and you can do more later.  In the winter I find I eat less of them because there aren’t as many in season, but I am back focusing on eating healthier and eating more vegetables.  I LOVE crisp fresh apples.  When I am craving a treat sometimes I just need something a little sweet and I find if I go too far in the sweets than it makes me crave more sweets.  I find if I do something a little sweet and especially something that has natural sweetness I don’t crave as much after.  Now don’t get me wrong anything chocolate and peanut butter is totally up my ally.  I just need to keep them as a sometimes sweet not an everyday or every minute sweet 🙂  HAHA which sometimes that is how often I want them.  Eat an apple stay healthy and strong

Kids eating Healthy? Possible or Not?

Ok so I just read this post about how It made me sad, but finished the rest of the article and really glad I did.  There are some parts that you think are common sense, but really good ideas and thoughts.  I think sometimes we get busy and don’t plan, or we do what is easy at the time, and that isn’t the best way to react.  I never thought of bribing kids with food might be a bad thing to help them eat better.  I thought it was really interesting.  I have to admit I am guilty of doing that.  I don’t do short order cooking my mom always had balanced meals and she usually wouldn’t short order cook.  I was really picky so I wasn’t really eating as much so she said if I am not going to eat what she made I would have to make it myself so I became a connoisseur of Top Ramen or when I was younger I called them curly noodles 🙂  But I am definitely better and not so picky, but I don’t know if my husband would agree.  There are just a lot of things I don’t like because of texture and some just because of flavor.  Tomatoes, mushrooms, pineapple, and coconut.  Lol haha I have so many people ask me when they find out I don’t like pineapple and coconut they say “But you are married to a Polynesian”  🙂 do they really think my tastes are going to change just because I married a polynesian.  Anyway it always cracks me up when people ask me that 🙂  Click Here for Great Post.
