Challenge: Healthy Eating

Standard

I am starting a new healthy eating challenge.  There was a time a few years ago that I started a healthy diet. I always felt great and had tons of energy. I still eat a very healthy diet, but I want to begin eating the way I used to. So, below are a list of things I will be avoiding. In addition I will be posting my menu every day as well as recipes for what I cook. 

I hope that others will join me. Feel free to comment and join me in this challenge. 

Forbidden foods:

1. Excess Dairy
2. Carbohydrates
3. Added Salt
4. Sugar
5. Trans Fats

Acceptable Foods:

1. Brown Rice
2. Oatmeal
3. Egg Whites
4. Proteins
5. Greek Yogurt
6. Vegetables
7. Fruit

Part of the diet is eating 3 meals a day and 2 healthy snacks between meals.  This is to maintain a healthy metabolism and keep blood sugar stable to avoid food cravings.  Also I will be allow myself one “cheat” meal per week. In addition I will be drinking the suggested amount of water each day.

I am doing this not just to engage in a healthier lifestyle, but also to help me get on a better schedule during the day. I work from home and it is hard to stay on schedule. I know that this will help me manage my time, have more energy and be more focused.
