Healthy Food Doesn't Have To Taste Healthy
So, today is the start of my last 2 weeks of my 3 month (90 day) attempt to reclaim my life. Sounds dramatic that way, doesn't it. The results are great. I'm down nearly 20 pounds, stronger and more alert. It's weird having to buy new clothes in sizes that I'm unused to. But, what have I really changed? Very little.
One of the excuses people have about the journey toward fitness and staying healthy is: "It's too hard for me to change my lifestyle." Ok, that isn't an excuse people admit. The excuses they do use are: "I don't have the time to exercise." "I don't have the money for... (insert gym membership, healthier food or workout equipment.)" "I don't like the taste of... (insert fruits, vegetables, vitamins, minerals or lean meats.)" Another one that they don't say is: "I don't have the willpower to do something consistently." Yet, they find time check their Facebook account. They have the money for junk and fast food. And, as for taste... healthy food doesn't have to taste bad.
I could ramble on a bit here. (Actually, I did and then I decided to hold onto it for further posts.) But, healthy things don't have to taste bad. Shakeology is a great example. The video above explains it pretty darn well. I have even cut back on some of the vitamins I take every morning and, at my house, it's what's for breakfast. You can find out more here.
