When I go about making a recipe, my goal is always to make something that’s straightforward and makes eating healthy easy. I truly believe that my health is one of the most important things in life and it’s worth preserving every chance I get.
But people always say things to me like – “isn’t that a lot of work?” or “I could never do that” or “my husband will never eat that,” etc etc etc… And you know what, I hear ya! I’ve been there! But here’s the truth – eventually it becomes second nature and easy. Eventually you will be surprised that you were worried about missing donuts or cheese. Like any skill or habit, it definitely takes time to learn to make healthier foods and prioritize health, but over time, it becomes so easy, you’ll wonder what took you so long to start!
Yet I hear…
“But I could never give up [insert any junk food here]”
So I ask…
But you could give up years of your life instead?
You could give up playing with your children, or grandchildren? Being able to run around and not feel like crap?
You could give up feeling and looking awesome?
I feel like a broken record about this all the time: health is easy to take for granted until it’s gone
