Hooray, I made it! Today is the last day of 3 weeks of healthy eating. I feel really good and so proud of myself that I was able to get through it without any issues. I've really enjoyed cooking healthy meals and eating much more veggies, fruits and whole grains than usual. I will definitely incorporate all I've accomplished into my daily routine. I learned that it doesn't take much to make healthier choices. It's not expensive or as time consuming as one may think. I've heard time and time again that healthy cooking/eating is expensive. It really isn't! In fact for this particular diet, my grocery bills were nice because all I bought were fruits, veggies, beans, tofu and whole grains. No processed, packaged products at all which really cut down on the expense.
I feel like after doing this, I will keep making better choices and learn to center myself and not give in to too many unhealthy cravings. I've even lost about 4 pounds, so knowing that will help me try to maintain it rather than gain it all back again!
Last day eats:
Breakfast: Green smoothie (spinach, banana, dates, mango)
Snack: Celery and sunflower paté plus a square of date brownie and later on, a banana.
Lunch: We went to The Veggie Grill today and I tried my best to make a healthy choice. This was the soup of the day: "Chickin'" Gumbo. It was delicious.
This was the Baja Fiesta side salad. It has romaine, papaya, avocado, roasted corn salsa, quinoa, cucumber, cilantro and a ginger-papaya vinaigrette. Yummy!
Dinner will probably be leftover pizza from yesterday. And most likely another salad. And maybe a brownie? :)
