Eating Healthy…A Snore No More!

Seeing that OnceAmonth is FOR ladies,the topic of weight, working out, and eating healthy will come up, but come on! Let’s face it – when we hear the words “healthy eating” come from one’s mouth our eyes glaze over and we may hold back a yawn. Healthy eating tips are plastered in magazines, discussed on TV, and whole boards are dedicated to it on Pinterest! Most of us know what foods are healthy versus unhealthy, however, we don’t always make the smartest choices when sticking our head into our refrigerators. Why?

I know for me, and many women I have spoken to, the hardest thing about eating healthy is that it all gets a little boring. Sure – have a banana, eat your vegetables, reduce your salt intake, yadda, yadda, yadda…it all starts to sound the same and TASTE the same.

I stumbled across a blog written by a young woman named Taralynn who was overweight when she was younger, but decided to turn her life in a new direction and take control of her weight, health, and happiness. She has reinvented recipes to make them lower in calories, created her own unique low-fat recipes, and posted some classic, yet sometimes forgotten, recipes.

I have read  my fair share of tips, blogs, and articles about eating healthy, but her blog was different and I have really taken in many of her suggestions and have tried several of her recipes.

Without further ado, I introduce Undressed Skeleton. (Click the link to go to website)

    I think creativity in the kitchen, along with convenience, does have a lot to do with how we eat. When you don’t have a lot of time or struggling with new, healthy meal choices to make, we often go back to the basics – and that’s when we get bored eating the same thing.

    However, I think impulse has a lot to do with healthy eating habits as well. Our society today is set up where if you want something, you get it. Fast food, convenient stores, and specialty food shops are everywhere. When you’re sitting on the couch thinking, “Hmm, I could go for a big doughnut right now”, the only thing in your way is usually a couple of blocks to the nearest 7-11 and $1.25. We crave, and we act. I often think, what did people do for a sweet tooth when convenient stores or processed food didn’t exist? Or I think of my grandparents, far into the woods of Wisconsin…. They live so far into the woods that they do not get phone reception of any kind, and it takes 40 minutes to drive to the nearest grocery store. If they get a craving for a specific food or taste, the either have the item, or they don’t. And there is no sense in driving 40 minutes to the nearest store for some brownies. But for most people, a 7-11, Wal-Mart, or Starbucks is on every corner making it so easy for us to act immediately on our impulses. And credit card/banks know this as well, as they are creating faster and “more conventient” ways to use your money… Just swipe your key tag over a sensor, and BOOM, you’ve spent all your money in 1 second. Advertising and business are build around feeding into our impulses, and I find that is my hardest hurdle to overcome when trying to eat healthy …. (today Adam and I ran to the 7-11 for a Snickers, doughnuts, and a latte….)
