Starting out on a fitness journey is hard, but trying to eat healthier is sometimes the hardest piece of the puzzle. We all know that it’s really about 80% diet and 20% fitness. So, where do you start? How does one say “Hasta La Vista” to all the comfort foods we know and love?

When I first started, I invested in an easy-to-read book. It’s by one of my favorites, Tosca Reno, and it’s the Clean Eating Book! There are several of them, but look for “Recharged.” It gives a ton of helpful information.

Next, make a list of all the foods you love and think you won’t be able to be without. Here’s the good news about this list…..you can write out healthy versions of your favorite foods! This is a GREAT way to keep you on track. Eating healthy does not mean just Chicken and lettuce!

Here are some examples:

Hamburgers – lean meat, use big romaine lettuce as “buns”

Pizza – use a whole wheat pita as the pizza crust, sugar free marinara sauce, low fat cheese, lean meats, tons of veggies

Pancakes – make protein pancakes!

Recipe: Insanity Protein Pancake

Ingredients:

1 (whole) egg

2 (medium) egg whites

1 (medium) scoop whey protein powder

1/4 (cup) instant oatmeal

Directions:

Combine ingredients with a few spoonfuls of water. Mix batter well, and then cook one large pancake on a non-stick skillet coated with cooking spray.

The key is to slowly make changes. The more you read, the more recipes you find, the easier Eating Healthy gets. Small Changes can make a BIG difference!

Here’s to your health!
